Thank you all so much for your replies. They have made my day :) Good to hear I uplifted some people.
I agree with everything said. This is a very serious disease that can just be too much to handle sometimes. I believe that it's important to have good people in your life who love and care about
you (something I am lacking right now).
I am new to this site but I can tell already that it is going to give me hope to get up everyday with a smile on my face (even if sometimes I don't wake up the happiest person
) Different things help different people... for me it's easier to focus on other people.
Having pets helps me a lot. If anyone was wondering why my name was squirrle (i know its spelled wrong hahaha) it's because I have a pet squirrel that I rescued from birth. Along with a ferret and a cat. I have found that it helps me to have something to take care of other than myself. I would highly recommend volunteering at an animal shelter or something. It makes me feel like I have purpose in my life. And like I'm good for something.
I believe that everyone's pain and struggles are different and they should be handled differently. I know that there are many other people out there who have it so much worse than me. My heart goes out to them, and to anyone who has lost a loved one. It can change your life. Either for better or for worse. It's up to you. I am still recovering from the loss of my sister. And take it day by day.
Much love to all,
