hi a friend commented today that i should look after myself and seek some healing, thus i am reaching out. a mate stayed over, is very depressed, haven't seen him today, hoping he kept his promise to see the doc. i said that i wanted him to stay the other night, he was very depressed and was shaking so much i felt that it was a duty of care to not let him drive home. and last night a friends relative opened up on some definitive sequale of abuse issues. thus i am exhausted. tonight i am not taking visitors, music therapy time. seeing doc thurs, water works, abilify, and treatment options for water works, dependant on ct-scan results. just need some quality sleep and personal time as some people have been projecting a bit. (in my world not hw community)
i have told my mate that i am a friend and not his therapist, and that i am not looking for a house mate either. he understood this well, an anyltical person alike me. i still will offer guidance, albeit i think he needs greater profeesional help at this time, this he is aware of. i will touch base with him, as i am concerned for his mental health. as for me, mine is okay, maybe a bath later.
cheers my hw friends, i am no good to others if i don't look after me.
take care, thanx 4 listening, jamie. ps community, still struggle with large posts, so if i take some time replying it is not because i am lazy, it is because of a few key medical indicators, and that it has been nearly 8 yrs since i touched a computer!
luv 2 all, jamie

I am glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself first. You are right, we are no help to others when we are not feeling well. So take care of you.

You sound like you have been doing well actually. Maybe this is just a minor set back from being so there for your friend. I hope that you recooperate soon.

Take care my dear friend, keep up the good work.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Jamie,

I agree with're absolutely doing the right thing. It's important to keep yourself as strong and healthy as possible, because as compassionate as you are to others, you can get depleted by giving so much, and need to recharge your own batteries and care for yourself for a while. Take it easy as much as you can, and good luck with your doctors appointments this week. ((hugs))
