What's the matter, nobody out there for me? Well if that don't beat all. Ya know what? I could use some communication too. I'm not so bad. Can somebody please talk to me? Where is everybody?
If you ever want to talk i'm usually in the chat rooms. If not, just sign in to there, and eventually, people come in.
Hi Crossroads and Welcome to HealingWell,
Just adding to the time zone thing quickly... also bear in mind that we have members in different countries. I am from the UK and seldom catch people from the US when they post. We also have members from Europe and Asia as well.
RE: Helping people to help you, I know what you mean. The help and support I provide on HealingWell is almost like a therapy for me since listening to other people helps to put my life in perspective and also helps me because I get to see ll the different methods people use to cope themselves. I would love for you to hang around and help provide support to people here. No qualifications neccessary. We all support and care for each other here... just like one big family unit.
I am so happy that you posted. I am glad to hear that you got a job. What will you be doing? I wish that I could find a part time job. But I have fibromyalgia, so I never know how I am going to feel from one day to the next.
I can understand your frustration. After staring at four walls all day and nothing to distract you, it would be hard for anybody. But I am glad that you are feeling better today.
I try to do a lot of walking when the weather is nice, but we have had a long winter where I live. It is suppose to snow again tomorrow, but I don't think it will stay. We still have snow on the ground, it is gradually melting.
I hope that you continue to have a good day, and I hope that you like your new job, you must be so excited.
I can't imagine how hard it is not to do the work that you use to, being it was working with people who were suffering. I lost my business due to fibromyalgia, I had a floral shop and plant nursery. Now all I do is plant a few flowers for myself every year. I have two greenhouses and now one is used for storage. But I do play in my small one. Every year we plant some extra and give them away to people that we know. So I atleast get that. But with what you did, something you loved so much and being able to help others, I can see where you would feel like you are taking a step down. But I think that most important is the feeling of independance and strength when you can go out and earn some money. I hope that you can enjoy your new job. I am sure that it will make you feel good about yourself.
I did the same thing as you, but, actually I think that I slept for two years. Couldn't do a thing. It was an effort to talk I was so exhausted with fatigue. And the pain was unbearable. But eventually with the help of medication, I am able to do a few things, not like I use to though. And it bothers me sometimes, but as long as I take life one day at a time, I am okay with it. I think that is all that we can do at that point.
I use to be a worryier too. The fibromyalgia stopped me from doing that too. So there are some good things that come out of it. I can't worry anymore, because I don't even know if I will get out of bed the next day. Makes life a little more spontanious when you can't plan anything. I just hope I make the doctors appointments.
Well, now that I have rattled on, I guess I should say that I am happy for you, and I hope that each day keeps getting brighter.
