HT,

I have seen ECT work for severe cases. She may not come make all the way but hopefully she will calm down to a quality of life she can maintain.

I am glad to hear that all siblings are going in force. No more of Jamie is going. Only Jamie. You need support as they do. Shared experiences are easier to handle.

Thoughts for you and family.
Peace

HT,

Sounds like your mum is finally getting some of the help she needs. Hope it works out well for all of you. Hugs all around!

Had a rough weekend. The loss of Sensei started another depression cycle and everything that I usually 'handle' became overwhelming. My partner, trying to 'help', kept pushing me to talk. Problem is, unless you are a trained mental health professional, me talking to you usually doesn't end well. I begged her to let it alone, told her I didn't want to escalate, but she wouldn't let up and I exploded. The next few hours were horrible.

We're still together but there is damage. I hate this.

Next day, we're out doing our weekly shopping and who do I run into? My former counselor!

Perhaps I should call and make an appointment...see if I can get back into the clinic. It's unusual for me to have a cycle in the summer.

Hope all is well with the rest of you all.

Your cycle probably happened because of the loss of Sensei. Give yourself some time and some self nurturing now. You been through enough.

Don't be hard on yourself right now. This too shall pass as they say. Know we are all here for you Pitmom.

Hang in there sweetie. Keep posting, it helps.

Hugs, Karen...

Sunny today!!! We have had cloudy skies and rain for quite a few days and I think it is going to return tomorrow. The garden and flowers are getting a lot of water. But today!!! Sunny!!! And a little warmer. Yesterday it was only in the 50's. So I am hoping for 70 today.

Had to replant the beans. I think it wasn't warm enough for them to sprout. I think that they rotted in the ground because we couldn't find them. I was worried that they were too deep also. Got the cucumbers and peppers planted. Tomato plants in large pots in the green house until it gets nice. I can't believe it has been so cold and wet but it has.

We are hoping that the berries and apples will be good this year. If we don't get a drought they should be fine. We haven't picked blue berries now for two years because there weren't any. Hopefully this year we will have a bumper crop!

I hope you all have a good day. I have been doing as well as can be expected. Nothing fantastic but nothing bad. Take care all of you!

Hugs, Karen...

So, another day.

I've been working hard at my extensive 'to do' list. Flashing installed around the air conditioner...check. Roof resurfacing...check. Patch drain pipe from kitchen...check. Get to the doctor to get my Valtrex...nope.

Darn it. Soooo close. Why is it 'self care' that is my sticking point?

Then, partner calls...says she's been thinking and thinking about the fight and why was she able to just 'get back to normal' when she was down here but now, can't stop thinking and thinking about the fight, now that she's back home? Ugh. Why would someone who has said 'Don't try to analyze me.' ask me to 'analyze her'?

Guess she just wanted to know I still feel like crud over it.

Nevermind the fact that I'm still trying to climb up out of the rabbit hole!

Sigh.

Meanwhile, the day lilies are blooming like crazy! Today, one pale apricot, several red, 2 two toned peach and 2 deep peach. The bee balm has started blooming, too. The milkweed continue to perfume the air.

So far I've seen several red admiral butterflies, several white cabbage moth/butterflies, a monarch (!), and a black swallowtail (!).

The mimosa tree is starting to bloom as is the yellow trumpet vine. The hummingbird will have quite a buffet here this year. The hummingbird mint is still blooming well and I picked up 2 more lantana plants.

More flowers on the tomatoes. The cucumbers are starting to climb. The strawberries are ripening.

I take a moment and go from herb to herb, picking just a bit to crush and release the fragrance from them to add to the perfume of the garden. Lemon thyme, pineapple sage, rosemary, lavender, Russian sage, chocolate mint, mixing with the milkweed and honeysuckle with just a hint of mimosa...wow!

Mix that with the colors, the sounds from the birds, the fountain, the windchimes...as close to heaven as I can imagine!

Balance. Float. Breath. Climb. Repeat.

Healing thoughts to you too Jamie. One day at a time. I never have a lot of motivation.

Sunny here so far today though it is suppose to rain. There are a lot of clouds so the sun is poking in and out.

Had to spray the cucumber plants as they were getting mold. Not enough sun. I think some trees may need to come down. But it has rained and been cloudy a lot so that doesn't help.

I hope you all are having a good day. Almost the weekend.

Hugs to all...

From what I have learned over the past 7 years is that a comment like this, is usually some one opening a door, to hopefully repair or start to repair a relationship./

I AM NOT TAKING SIDES. What I am saying is everyone has some kind of pain. Like us the put a mask on. A lot do not pass well, seem arrogant, mean. Lot of hurt behind that.

If this connection is important to you. You might consider a conversation about feelings, each listening, that talking in turn. You do not have to go deep.

Peace and courage

Hello all,

I am tired but over the worst of it I do believe. I had a severe case of bronchitis! I am just coming around from that. I went to the doc on the 23 and had to have a wheelchair to get into the clinic and then got 125 c.c of steroids and a breathing treatment. I also got sent home with prednisone and an antibiotic to clear it out faster as well. I am done with the antibiotics tomorrow and the prednisone on Sunday.


I actually feel more human today and I have in a while, so I know things are working their way out of my lungs and back where ever they came from. Gosh i was so bad off.

I was so congested that I was coughing and jacked my voice up, BAD! It's fine now but it was bad.
I am working on me day by day. Laughter and playing are our cures! Kids do this, why can't we?

Hello HT HAPPIEST TURTLE IN THE WORLD .

HI ALL,

Dawn I glad you are feeling better.

Last night I had what Frued would have called classic "hysteria"

Poor John was beside himself as to how to calm me. Dissociaton to me on trips still unknown.

Tripled my Ativan in take, to stay out of crisis. John a call in to Psychiatrist of another script, Insurance will not refill before 30 days

Meditation and mindfulness are hard close to impossible, but dose help when do it.

I will be scarce for a while on the forum, 3 or 4 day I think, just need to group

Peace

Oh Trina- I really hope you start feeling better. My gosh that's scary. Try to rest and relax so you do feel better.

I am clean and shaven, my breathing is normal again and besides a small cough and being tired I am almost 100%.

I have also not had a smoke since 6/23/17 and I am not planning to go back either. I do not miss them to be honest. This is what I have needed to get my bum in gear and I will take my hint.

I will be back soon to check on y'all. Good night.

Hi Dawn, Jamie and Trina,

Hope you all are feeling better. Dawn, so proud of you for stopping smoking. I hope to be soon to follow. I can't seem to get the proper mindset.

Trina, I hope things are better for you. Hang in there the best you can.

Jamie, I hope your session goes well. I am sorry it is cold. Suppose to be sunny and warm here today.

Take care all...

Hugs, Karen...

HT- I am sorry for the cold and noctura. I honestly hope that your mum gets better soon so she can feel like herself again. I hope all appointments go well and that you and sis have an easy time with your mum.

Karen- For me to stop it was easy, breathe or smoke! Well I like air so I am gonna stop and I hope never go back either. I hope! I know it is not easy but putting them down and not picking them back up is easiest for me to do even when I want one, my will power is weak, but if I can do it anyone can. I am pulling for ya hun.

Well it is the 3rd and I have not had a smoke since the 23 of June. I do not really crave them as I just crave the habit of having one in hand. It's strange.

I am super tired as I didn't fall asleep until 5am then was up at 9am and then again at 11am and then at 3pm. So very broken sleep. I need to get to Walmart but I am still so winded that I don't wanna push too hard. Ugh!

More later on.
