Others are in the chat forum.  Will we still be able to have our chat as scheduled today? I'm afraid others will not come in if they don't see depression members and may feel they are imposing. Should we still go in?

Hi Aurora:  I'm sorry.  I had been in the Lupus chat room for a little bit checking in w/someone while I was waiting for you and other members to log into the depression forum.  I just thought I would switch rooms once I saw someone there.  I wish you had jumped into the Lupus forum.  Often times I have met up w/people regardless of the room they are in.
 
I am on Eastern time.  So I believe I am about 4 hours? ahead of you.  My girls are leaving for vacation w/their dad tonight.   I would be happy to check in this evening w/you as I know nights are hard for both of us.  If you could leave a time that you think you could be online, we could figure out the time difference.  I would be glad to meet you there.
 
I'm sorry again.
Cass

Hi Cass,That would be great if we could have a chat tonight.  You said you are on Eastern time.  I am in the Midwest and on Central time so that should make you an hour ahead of me.  I could be on at 8 PM my time if that works for you.  If you want to do earlier I could probably come on sooner.  Tell me what works for you and I will go into the chat room.  Looking forward to talking with you. Might be good for you if your kids are leaving tonight.

Aurora:  9:00 p.m. my time sounds good to me.  I actually have a few errands to run after my girls leave so this will allow me enough time to do that.  I'll see you in the depression forum then.

Karen, that would be great if you came into chat.  I'm sure you have had a long hard day and may be too tired. But if you are up to it would love to chat with you. You always have the right things to say.

Sorry I couldn't make it today! I had a very difficult customer this afternoon, and it was a much later day for me than I expected. I am wiped out tonight, but I had to come and offer my apologies, especially to you, Aurora. I hope you and Cass had a nice chat. See you guys on the forum tomorrow.

Aurora:  I"m so sorry.  I was trying to get back to you.  Please come back into chat.  I know you are really down right now and I don't want you to be alone.

Cass, I appreciate you trying to help.  I really felt like a 5th wheel and it was just very uncomfortable for me.  I think I am better just posting a thread and getting replies that way.  It seems like this group all knows each other and it is too hard for me to try to fit in.

I'm so sorry you felt left out....we definitely didn't mean to do that cry

I hope you'll come back and chat again! We'd all love to be there for you if you'll let us!

Thanks, Becky.  I just felt like I was intruding on your chat. I guess you all get together for chat and have a whole group. I haven't been part of that and I just felt like a fifth wheel.  I just felt like no one was interested in talking to me. I could give it another try and see how it goes. I am so lonely at night so I thought having people to chat with would help me get through the night but it ended up making me feel worse. I guess with so many people its hard to break into your conversations. And you all  know each other so well.  Maybe I will try again and see how it goes.  I have 2 weeks alone coming up and I am just dreading it.

Hi Aurora:
 
I'm so sorry that you felt like a 5th wheel in chat last night.  A lot of the folks were focused on me.  A member said some really hateful things to me and I was very upset.  I didn't want you to feel that way.  I'm usually in the chat room (lupus one) at about 8pm EST I would love to get to know you and be there for you.  I understand feeling being all alone.  Even tho I have a husband and child.  I battle depression every day and I can relate to you on that level too.  Also, if you're battling a physical illness I can really relate.  I feel so bad that you didn't feel welcome last night.  Please give me and the others another chance, you'll feel better once you get to know us.  I've been chatting here since March of 2005 and I'm always more than happy to listen and help others out.
 
I really hope you stop by tonight and we can chat.  I'll give you a bit of information about me I'm 44 married with a 16 yr old daughter.  I've been married 24 yrs.  My hubby helps with the phyiscal requirements I need but not emotional ones.  I have lupus/RA/fibro/blood cancer (leukemia).  So you know about me and I'll be looking forward to getting to know you.  Please come and see me tonight I'll be there at 8pm and I'll stay probably on up until 10pm.
 
Looking forward to getting to know you.  I hope you have as good of a day that's possible.  You're not alone sweetie you're friends here will be here for you.  All you have to do is hollar and I'll be there, unless I'm in the hospital.  Otherwise I'll always respond to your posts or meet you in chat.  Hope to see you soon.
 
Hugs,
Barbara

Hi Barbara, thank you for replying to me.  I have been in a very low, depressed way lately and I was hoping to find a way to take the edge off my lonliness by finding some friends to talk with.  I'm sorry that someone upset you.  I would never do that.  One of my problems is that I am ultra sensitive and the slightest thing can get me in tears.  I am on an a/d med and anti anxiety.  I do see a therapist and she is wonderful. But there are the times when I can't talk to her and I feel just lost.  I have been divorced for a long time. I have 2 sons 35 and 30. My younger son was supposed to get married in Oct. but the whole thing fell apart and I am very sad that there is no wedding to look forward to but glad that he will not marry this girl who was not right for him. I am a 4 yr breast cancer survivor but never got my energy back after all the radiation.  I also suffer from very bad asthma which keeps me in a lot because there is a lot of mold and pollen here. I took care of my elderly mother for 10 yrs and worked for about 20 yrs while raising my boys. I am looking for a part time job but there is nothing out there so I don't have much to do. I am a volunteer at our local Senior Center and I enjoy doing that. I would love to travel but don't have the money to go any where right now. My older son is going in vacation for 2 weeks. He lives with me. He has epilepsy so hasn't been able to be on his own but I am trying to get him independent because I won't be here forever.  When he goes away I get very sad because I am alone in the house and I get scared at night. I am trying to get together with friends but Aug is the month everyone goes away before school starts. My sons are my only family.  My grandparents, parents and 2 sisters have all passed away so I guess I depend on my sons too much.  If you think it would be OK for me to come into chat I may give it another chance. I'll try and see how it goes. Thank you again for responding to me. I may not get into chat tonight as we are having a family dinner but if not tonight then i'll try tomorrow.

Aurora
