Hi everyone,
My friend's fiance finally got this ole' computer to work.  It was the hard drive so it is a good thing I have a best friend that has a computer genius for a life partner.
 
Anyway, so many things have happened since I last posted and I am not really sure where to start.  Most importantly I had my vns checked and my doc agrees that I am not being overly sensative when I complain about what is going on.  He reprogrammed it and we will see how it works.  So far it has not really made a difference in the discomfort.  My depression has been pretty well controlled with the change in my meds, it is actually to me a big difference, for the good.
 
I am glad though to be able to communicate again with you guys :-)

yeah  
 
Teresa,
 
I am so happy that you are back, I have missed your posts so much.  Glad that your friend was able to help you.  My computer is kind of old and I wonder now and then if it will quit, but so far so good.
 
I went canoeing the other day.  Haven't been in over 10 years.  We fell in twice, but it was a beautiful time.  I got to see my nephews who I haven't seen for a long time.  So it was great.
 
It sounds like you are doing really good.  I am so happy for you and happy that you are back.
 
Keep me posted.
 
Luv and hugs, Karen

Hi Teresa, I too am glad that you are back.  It's good that your meds are helping you.  I am very available to talk so if you post I will reply.  We all need each other to help us no matter if it is a good thing or if feeling down.  Take good care of yourself.

Thanks you guys, I am so glad that my computer is working because over the weekend my life has gotten extremely traumatizing.  I will be fine,just a little depressed because there are issues now that may change my life forever or a very long time.
 
 
It just seems like when I start to feel better, something tests my strength and faith again.  To be honest, I am so tired of the rollercoaster ride that seemsa to govern every day of my life, I try so hard to be strong and pray for God to put someone in my life that can stand beside me and make me feel safe from all this crap.  I find myself being extremely hard and untrusting and that has made me return to my little shell and spend days not wanting anyone around me.
 
Well gotta run and make some sense out of this crazy, stressful day.

Teresa, I am so sorry you are going thru such a rough time.  I always wonder how sometimes things can be so good and then it turns around and the bad feelings come back.  If there is anything I can help you with or you just need someone to talk to post me.  I am a good listener and will always answer your posts.  As I have said before life is what happens when you are making plans.  If you have faith in God remember during the hard times he is always with you and will carry you when you are going thru bad times.  Take care and let us hear from you.

Hey Teresa,

I don't know your situation, however, things are on the improve. Great to hear. I have had and still take enough medications to last me two lifetimes. When they work life is just sooooo much better.

Take care and stay positive,

All the best, Stuart aka Beyond my Control

Teresa,
Hope you had a good crazy day. My day did not go so great. Husband did not look for work at all today. His back hurt too much. He stayed in bed and slept till early evening. Then at 11 yelled at our son because he failed to bring in the trash cans. This is the kid who always helps me when my husband is in bed. Hubby upset that son does not look for things to do. It was a big argument way to close to bed time. I was just about asleep when my son came and got me to tell me our fireplace door shattered. No one was hurt. But it is going to be 300 or so to fix. Something I did not need right now.
I think God must be tired of carrying me. But He keeps me close. It is just really trying to have to go thru all of this stuff. God has a plan. Not sure I like the plan, but I am confident that even if this time of my life is bad, there is a purpose that is His.
Lynne

PS I decided to splurge and get a new haircut. Big mistake. :-)

Aurora~
You are truly a great friend, you mean alot to me!!!!!  I am hoping that these problems come to end soon, it just really depresses me.
 
WOD~Ohoh, I know what it is like to get a "bad" haircut.  That is why I very rarely get one even though it needs trimmed.  Sometimes I think that my hair is my crowning glory even when it needs trimmed.
I know that this is all a longterm plan of God but I would really like if my plan would come to fuition or he could make my plan a little less complicated.
I am hoping that this summer is better than last summer.

Hey Teresa, We haven't met yet but I see myself in you. I completely feel you on the rollercoaster deal. If it's not one thing it's another. And it seems like if things are going too good, you know something extra bad is going to happen. Why can't we find that abundant life Christ intended for us? I just keep praying that He will be with me through this very long and hard storm. I know he is. Anyway, I usually post on the anxiety page but I'm finding this page helpful for my depression too. So im kinda new here I guess. I look foward to getting to know you. ((((((((LOVE)))))))))))

Teresa, I'm glad to come back to see you're doing better! :) Life is always going to be crazy it just depends on whether you take control of it or let it take control of you. Good thing you have your computer back, I'd go crazy without mine I think!

Teresa, if it's any comfort, I'm on that roller coaster too.

A humorous example (and this is the teeniest, tiniest one of my problems):

My front tires have needed air for the longest time. I put this off because I don't like to do it, but told myself the next gas station, I'd pull into and get the job done.

A man was standing by the air pump and started doing it for me. I was so thankful, I knew  it was my guardian angel helping me out. Long story short--he took air out of my tires, didn't work at the station, was homeless and wanted "a couple of dollars" for doing it!

And the air wasn't free--had to keep plugging quarters!

Since I'm ill, am house sitting to get away from a bad situation and the house sitting has turned into a bad situation, I thought my teeny, tiny situation could have at least been an answer to prayer! I was very angry at this seeming joke on me by God.

But then have to remind myself this is a fallen world and things aren't going to be perfect down here!

HI Korissa,

When it rains it pours, eh? How did you figure out the guy was letting air out of the tires? Man I would have been fit to be tied if that happened to me. But I bet that you keep air in the tires yourself now. Did you give the guy a couple dollars for letting the air out of your tires? What a thing to have happen.

I hope that things start looking up for you. I hope that the house sitting works out.

Good luck and keep posting

hugs, Karen...

cool cool cool cool cool

here WE are all together on this RIDE called LIFE

Sometimes I think we feel woozy from all the bends & the turns
en route to our Destination.
Sometimes we get to see the mountain tops and at other times the valleys

Does it help to know that we are in this together?

it helps me.....

Thanks for the hugs, Karen, I sure can use them now.

I usually do this myself and before you get the thing centered correctly, the pin in the middle takes the air out. There's a certain "whoosh" sound when you know it's going in.

For a litlle bit, I thought I heard the good sound and thought maybe it was enough. When I commented that I didn't think they looked high enough he said it was because my tires were turned at an angle.

At that point I just wanted to get out of there!

Moral of the story: "do it yourself!"

Teresa,
I can not agree with you more. God should definitely be done with me by now and move on to someone else. With all the weight I have been gaining I must be getting awfully heavy to carry. But I would rather be going through this with a sense of humor over God's "blessings" than without.
My hair is so short. I dont think it has been this short since I was 5. And it has never been this dark. Egads! But my daughter and I had fun getting the color and cuts, so I guess a few months of short hair will be worth it.
How is your daughter and the grandbaby?

Hi Teresa

So glad that you are back. We were without internet for a couple of days,and I was lost!

I am glad that you have a Doctor that actually listens to what you say and takes action. At least you know that you can be helped and now taking it one day at a time.

Hi everyone,
 
Another day of chasing info on this car issue.  I have several different parties involved in this what I am finding out could be the next 20/20 story.  It is so frustrating to do this alone so I hope these orgs can really help.
 
My depression has been bringing me down and I am not sure if it is the drama that is going on in my life or the transition of meds.  All I know is that yesterday was the first time in awhile that I cried really hard and felt really alone, I guess I just feel abandoned.
 
I am glad that I have you guys to listen.

Hi Teresa

I have my crying time last weekend. I made the b/f go to his parents and bawled for about 4 hours.
It is amazing how many tears can come,it seems that they will never stop.

I hope that someone is able to help you with the car issue.

I have been telling everyone I know that deals with Ebay to not buy anything from them.

Maybe after you have been given justice will I change my mind.

Teresa,
Hopefully things are going a bit better. I am feeling so frustrated. Hubby's job search is going no where. I am trying to redecorate with no money. Purchased linens on ebay--and they have not arrived. The seller has not responded to repeated emails or phone calls. I am so upset. Work is overwhelming. The house is in total disarray. I am so very very very upset.

WOD,
Things are going about the same, depression is lingering with alot of negative thoughts.  Just feel numb and unattached whe
Things  it comes to caring about anything.  I am also in a financial pitfall and for the first time I am actually wondering what I will do w/o money until the first of the month.  Oh well, I have given up trying to figure out whether or not things are a sign or not, kinda given up on anything related to hoping or praying for things I wanted even months ago, I guess my reality is that I have to quit waiting on things that I was leaving in Faiths hands, I guess I have decided that one day things may be what I always hoped for but for now I cant sit and wait on someone that has left our memories and love somewhere in the dust, I guess I am finally realizing is that I dont need the comfort of what he brought me, he is gone and I know that.  I think that is why my depression is bad because I am having a hard time letting go but every day that passes without a call to see how I am or a feeling of being missed goes by, the numbness I feel is growing every day.
 
I have my own issues with ebay as well.  The car I am having problems with was bought on ebay and what a nightmare it has been!!!!!!  I will never buy anything from ebay again and I am actually naming them in the lawsuit I may have to file.  My suggestion to anyone thinking about using ebay to do their research first.
 
Good Luck to you, it is a nightmare.
Teresa
