I just wanted to say that my son will be starting daycare next week for the 2 days.....And I have my intake appt with a behavioral health place on Monday.......This past week has been better for me but I'm still having problems every now and then hating who I am......And feeling low.....Sometimes I just feel like I'm living life alone.....And my boyfriends parents are coming the day after christmas, we are all supposed to go to his brothers and stay 2 days....I'm not looking forward to being away from my house (spending the night) and putting up a front.......Anyway I do know that Monday will be the first step......And I'm really hoping this place will be better for me.....With caring people......

Hi Hope,

I think that we all feel like we are living life alone at times. Or from time to time. Things just get so overwhelming and it is like we are the only person suffering on this planet, but believe me, we are not. There are so many of us going through a hard time right now. So you are definately not alone.

I am happy that you are getting into a mental health program. That can be so helpful at times. We need the feedback and the support. I hope that this is the right program for you and that it helps you to get direction and to feel better.

What do you intend to do with the time you will have when your son goes into day care? I hope that you can use it to relax and do something for yourself.

I hope that you have a wonderful evening. Keep posting. I am happy that you are doing better.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks gettingby,

I sadly know that there are a lot of people out there struggling too but thanks for the support. At least I know that I'm on my way to getting better right? I have to try and look at that way. While my sons in care, I will get the time to myself but will also make any appts on those days, like counseling....the intake....meds...etc....I'm happy too that I've made the decision to do this again, I just really need to keep treading and I don't care if I'm on meds the rest of my life.....I have to get better to live my life the way I need to and want to.

wishdreamhope going somewhere out of our comfort zone can be really challaging but if you keep in mind that it will only be for a short while then i know you can get through it .
Putting up a front is such hard work but we tend to do it all the time .Not letting anyone know how we are actually feeling ,not wanting anyone in on our feelings .
With the help of your new group i`m sure you will be able to break down the barrier and this will improve how you are feeling .Most of us in here at sometime s do not like the way we are feeling but getting help is the first step .
Enjoy your time your son is in care and do something for yourself it does not have to me a major thing but something you like and would enjoy .

Hope,

I do want you to know that I am very proud of you for getting the arrangements made and that tomorrow is your day.  This day is for you.  You first step toward working through your problems with a professional.  You will learn many things and remember go at your own pace. 

We all falter from time to time, never beat yourself up but just get back at it......................kick any stinkin thinkin to the curb.

Gentle Hugs

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your support.....My appt went very well today.....I knew about 15min into it that this was different.....I felt like I was heard and understood and not left hanging....My treatment plan will consist of counseling with cognitive therapy and meds....I will know about the Dr's appt for meds tomorrow hopefully I won't have to wait too long but I'm on the road.....I think that going to my boyfriends brothers is all in all good for me and especially my son......So I will just have to try and make something of it.....But thanks for understanding snowflake.....It's hard to be out of your relm.....My son starts tomorrow....I will feel soo guilty leaving him even though I know he will be ok.....He really needs this....Even though I have my own needs that will be met...I'm still a mom! Hopefully it won't last long and before I know it I'll be feeling comfortable......

 

I'm happy about getting this started and I'll get a break from my son tomorrow....Thanks for being here for me!!

Hi Hope,

I am so happy that everything is going well for you. I am happy that you got your son into day care. They do need to be around other kids and it will be healthy for him and you both.

Keep up the good work.

hugs, Karen

Dear HOpe

This is something that is going to be good for you.  I know it is hard to leave your son as the mother instinct is strong but know your  helping both of you.  Bless you

Kitt
