I just can't quite get above the dark cloud that wants to come in when I am happy.  It doesn't take much to please me.  I have always kept my life simple so that I could enjoy the little things that most people over look throughout life.   But today I noticed (again) that in the middle of just being me while I was watching television, this feeling of dispair came over me.  Not in an overwhelming way, but in a subtle way.
 
I have always had the problem of letting myself be happy, but I thought that I had passed that way of undermining my own happiness by now.
 
I know that we have had a long winter, and everything starts getting hard to deal with at this time of year.  I do find comfort here, and that is why I am here writing this today.  I thank you all for being here.  I am thankful for a place to come when I don't feel so good.  And when I do feel good. 
 
I just thought that maybe we could all share in something to be thankful for or happy about.  Let's try to think of something possitive to post about.
 
Mine is for all of you, and the little bit of sunshine that I had today.  For without these two things I don't know where I would be.  Thank all of you, for just being you and for sharing.
 
Luv and hugs,

Gettingby~
I want you to know that these days will come and go, believe me I do know  this.  You have to hang on to something that gives you hope for a new day.  There will be days when you will feel alone and hopeless, just remember that there are people that do care about you and wish for days that are more sunny than cloudy.
 
You have been such a comfort to me as well as others, we are here for you please know that.  These days that you experience are the roughest test of our faith and strength.

I thank God for every day that I am blessed with the possibility of a miracle of a long awaited prayer.

HIya,

I know it looks tough at the moment, but from the way you are talking, it sounds like you are almost there... you just need to push a little further. As the winter starts to push away and the warmer weather sets in, you can start to get out more and that can help too.

I get way more depressed in the winter and really have to work on it.

Hopefully things will start to get better for you. You are very strong and have been though so much.

Thanks you guys,

It isn't like i am super depressed or anything, just seems like things are catching up to me.  I am so looking forward to spring when I can get out a little more.  I live in northern Michigan and we have had so much snow and cold weather.  Just thought if I vented it would help me some.  I just keep trying to push that dark cloud away.

Thanks so much for your encouragement, I really appreciate that.  I will keep fighting.

hugs,

Karen

getting by,
Great idea.............I have the same problem you do.  I am doing fine and then whoosh, like a tornadoe the dark cloud rushes in. 

I am thankful for my beautiful grandchildren, all 7 of them.  They are my heart and soul and they remind me that life keeps on going.  They are bright and funny and so beautiful.  The make my heart sing.

We are all here for you getting by.  Spring will be here soon.
