Dear Singer and Wizzer,
Thank you, I appreciate your answers more then you can know. Sometimes I just get scared and feel like no one even knows I am here. But I have made some great strides and I know I need to keep moving forward.
I have lost so much in my life, but losing my son to a car accident was the hardest thing. A bad day can bring back all the memories and the pain is overwhelming when I have no one to turn too.
I now know I can come here. Helping people is what I love to do, that is the nurse in me. I have applied for a part time position at our new YMCA as an attendant..............bottom of the pile job, but I want to stay low profile. I do not want the stress of being in a management position anymore. I just want a simple life and to feel happy.
Again thank you so much.
Dear Janet, Gem and Aurora,
Thank you for your responses. I feel so much better knowing there are people out there when you need them.
You are all special to me as Healing Well has be a godsend and the people I have met on the site are so caring.
I am not feeling so alone after reading your supporting posts. I am thankful.
Is that your idea of 1 response Kitt?
Joking apart, I am always here if you want me. I know how hard long weekends can be on your own. Is there any news of your volunteer work? That might be a way of expanding your social network
Big British Hugs
You always answer my posts in the anxiety forum, and are so wonderful and helpful... I hate that you are suffering. I guess we sometimes forget to thank the moderators for all the help they give... You are wonderful, and you deserve so much happiness. I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated.
Wow, I am overwhelmed............you are all so wonderful. Thank you for letting me be able to ask for help and receive such a great response. This morning I felt so alone and tonight after your posts, I even went to the local Rivertown Days Parade. I jumped in my car and said get out there.
I love being on the giving end and now I know how it feels to accept a wonderful, caring gift from each of you.
Thank you is a very tiny word, but it comes with a huge helping of gratitude.
Gentle Hugs to all
(((((hugs))))) You are so wonderful. You have been so supportive to me. I too feel like I'm going to lose control, or get scared when my bf is away. It's like I can't handle it. I'm okay if I'm not depressed. But when I'm depressed, it's not a good scene. Sometimes I'll even be feeling okay, my mood will either be high or at least better, and if he has to go somewhere, it puts me in a state of depression and things become scary. It is something I fear and want so badly to change, but how?
So needless to say I know how you feel. I don't have any friends either.
I also know how it feels to be rescued by the support of HW. Just over a week ago, I posted a desperate cry for help in the Bipolar forum, and it was answered (it was so amazing, overwhelming in the best way) and totally got me through. The support from HW seriously got me through the crisis.
Good for you for getting out, I'm so proud of you for that. Also couldn't be prouder that you posted in the first place. Don't ever hesitate to do that. We're always here.
Hope you are feeling better, and I will be keeping my eye out for you.
PS. Just something to add...When I posted that cry for help, I was severely depressed. I kept my computer on, kept HW up on the screen and took a nap in the spare bed in the computer room that day. Just knowing that everyone was there in the room with me, on HW, made me feel like I wasn't alone. It was very comforting.
Hi there and thank you, I could take a nap in the computer room too. Never thought of that but what a great idea. I don't know why things can be good for weeks and than boom. I always tell myself I am not alone, but the feeling is there and then the tears start and it is on to guilt and insecurity and sensitivity all ruashing at me at once.
I so appreciate everyone here and it is truly a life saver to be able to be a part of HW.
Thank you for your support.
What can I say, thank you is such a small way of trying to tell you how much I appreciate you and I am better today. Yesterday I just stayed in the moment and came here, looking at the many people who are in need and felt gald that I could be here to support and share myself with others.
You are such a gentle person and you understand people well, don't ever lose that trait.
Gentle hugs dear lady.
