I am sorry you cannot access your old thread at the same time you are posting in part 2 here.
For clarification, Ranish posted to you on 5/11
"Oh...I forgot to ask you something. It's been mentioned to me that once this thread reaches two hundred posts, we will need to start a new one. I think you mentioned a while ago that you were thinking of re-naming this thread "Hope" (as opposed to "No Hope"), and I wonder if you would feel comfortable starting a new thread for yourself with that name, or another name of your choice. It's your thread, and your decision, but I thought I'd give you the 'heads up' on the 200 post limit, anyhow. Have a wonderful day!"___________________________________________

I should have mentioned that Karen is taking a break and enjoying long walks in the woods with her beautiful dogs and her husband too. I know she will return refreshed and soon be back here giving you the excellent support and advice she always does.
She is one awesome lady.
I agree with Raniah and wish you a successful week.
You are not a shmuck nor are your ill health issues self created. Depression is a real, treatable illness that affects the brain. It can’t be overcome by “snapping out of it.” Asking someone to “think positive” is like asking someone with diabetes to change his or her blood sugar level by thinking about it. People with mood disorders can feel better with the right treatment. You are working very hard at learning how to deal with your disorder and learning to live with it. Please be proud of yourself and remember this is about you. Yes many other people have horrible things going on in their lives but that does not negate your problems.
Take care my friend and be well.
Our friends are like angels,Who brighten our days.In all kinds of wonderful,Magical ways.
Peace begins with a smile,
You know I am the great believer in staying in the moment so please do your best to be present in the very moment, do not try to over think what is happening in your life but let life happen to you.
You have the right to make your choices but plan some fun into your life.

Gentle Hugs and caring,
