Hi there Aurora..
When I read your post I see that you are a 'giver' in life - you are a wonderful warm caring person who really doesn't like to upset anyone
Well, I think it's time you started being 'warm and caring' to yourself for a change - when was the last time you treated yourself to something really special?
How about starting to phone around old friends that you haven't heard from for ages and plan a get-together..How about starting to plan a holiday - you never know who you might meet How about 'journaling' your thoughts and making yourself small goals to acheive...
I wish you well..
(Great advice and input given by Erik )
Hi Aurora dear,
You have some wonderful suggestions and advice here....to that I dont have much to add but my love and support to you.
I did want to say that it would seem like a good idea to your psych doc about bumping up your antid dosage again. Sometimes it does take a few months for those levels to come down and our bodies to really feel the effects of the missed dosages. That could be part of the problem also.
Please keep posting and letting us know how your doing. Bug hugs to you hunni

I do feel you on your post. I have not posted for a while because I have been trying to work. Like you I have to avoid physically stressful jobs. I am one very lonely person too and would like to be your friend and help you in anyway I can. I have similar situation with my sons too. I think I have my addy on my profile, if not I will add it. Hang in there.

Hi Dor and Delilah, Your posts made me feel so much better. It helps so much to know that even people you have never met care about you. You both sound like really wonderful people and I am so happy to count you both as my friends. I am doing much better now that the weekend is over. Those are the hardest and most lonesome times for me. If we can keep in touch and keep posting it will be a great help to me and I hope I can do the same for you. I do have hobbies, I like to read a lot and I do needlepoint and gardening. When you are feeling low it's not so easy to just pick up a book and read. The bad feelings take over and I can't concentrate and that is when I just sit and cry. I try to get out more as it helps to be around people even if they are strangers, but with the price of gas I don't go out that much. I wish you both the best and hope we will stay in touch. Again, thanks so much for your help!
