eyes  hi, i,m new on this forum, i,ve been on the hepatitis forum since last december when i lost my father to liver disease, he passed on december 18 th of 06. liver disease is a horrible for the person who has it and for the family, he went through you know what and so did his family, i was the one who had to keep up with everything. i gave up two part time jobs, there was no time to work, thank god for my husband, bless his heart. my father was so sick!!!! i just miss him so much, i just couldnt stand the way he was suffering anymore.
 in april of this year i was bittin by dog on my right hand and lost the tip of one of my fingers, the dog was hurt and i,m a dog lover. to make a long story short the dog warden shot the dog. very up setting i wasnt going to keep him after that but i didnt want him shot!!!    i just got my CDL to drive school bus doing it part time now, brand new at it you know how it is with a new job. i need some normal in my life. takeing 5mg of valium for anxiety 3 x day helps the anxiety but i think i,m a little depressed now!! almost scared to take anti depressants the side afects sound terrible almost as bad as the depression, i,m sleeping to much and still tired i eat even when i,m not hungry, havent felt happy for a long time, forgot what its like.
 had a lot of blood work done in march 06, everything ok blood work came back good. was a little blue then. but thought it would pass. well i guess thats all for now had to vent, if anybody has any sugesstions i,m game for any thing that might help. thanks for listening. i know i have to talk to dr about this.( look over the spelling)
yeah  even the time change affects me because its dark so early, live in ohio so now the cold and snow are here. cant get out side. need some sunshine!!!
 bye for now

Hi Annette,

Do you realize the accomplishments you just listed. It sounds like you are getting your poop in a group to me. You should be proud of yourself. I know you miss your father, anybody would. But you know that he is no longer suffering. Also I believe he is still with you. It sounds like you were very close.

I hope things brighten up for you. It sounds like you are working so hard.

I would like to welcome you to this forum. We are here to help you. And hopefully you can give us some tips on getting through this holiday season. There tends to be a lot of struggling at this time of year.

Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

Wishing you a wonderful evening,
hugs,

I am so sorry for the loss of your father,loosing a family member is probably one of the hardest things we can go through in life. The grieving feels like it will never go away...one day at a time with that.

I think it is time that you go back to the doctor,you need something to help you with the depression..
I know that all of the meds list the nasty side effects,but we are all different..and one person might have a side effect and the other does not.

It took my doctor 4 tries on different combos of meds before we got it right...that is normal.

Please keep us updated and stay strong

YOU have made some excellent steps with your depression........and for that be proud

Come back and keep posting

KUDOS to you

Many times the lists of interactions or complications with meds are there for lawsuit purposes .......My opinion only ........

Hi there Annette,

I hope that you are feeling better today. I know that this is a difficult time for you. The holidays are hard for a lot of us right now. Total stress.

You sound like me with this shortness of sunlight. I get that seasonal defective disorder. I use to have a light box, but it got broken. I can't afford another one at this time. I live in Michigan. We have a lot of snow here now and it has been really cold. That is enough to make anybody depressed. Sometimes I cross country ski in the winter, that really helps me to feel better. If I can get going, I can create my own energy. Then hopefully it will build from there.

Is it hard driving all those kids around? I don't know if I could handle all of the noise? Some people really enjoy that kind of work. It takes a strong person to drive bus. How do you handle all of the gear shifting? Or are they still like that?

I hope that you have a wonderful evening.

hugs,

:-)  hi getting by, i,m feeling better with a little sunshine we have had. as soon as we had the time change it seemed like i started feeling worse, at least now i,m working part time now and that helps alot. all the holidays this year will   be the first  without my father and he passed away last year before christmas, makes it hard. i lost my mother in 1994 day before thanksgiving, life does go on. but then i had a job to go back to this time i didnt. i,m new at driving bus, driving not the bad part its trying to figure out where they go, you follow a map but you cant read the directions while driving bus with kids on, so you learn to depend on kids to tell you and most of them do if they want to get of the bus. the school distrist i sub for have all automatic and some newer ones i havent drove standard for years. i guess it the anticipasion of getting them all home in the right place when you do a new route for the first time alot of anxiety. i,m so out of shape that 15 minutes on the tread mill wears me out, let alone cross country sking you must be in good shape. i dont sleep very good at night toss and turn, dr gave me lunesta 2mg to try a while back but they kept me awake. that was that. thanks for listening and have a great day and evening.

Hi Annette,

My bf took lunesta and said it left a horrible taste in his mouth. We both take ambien now. And now it is generic, which seems stronger than the brand name, I think I will just take 1/2 tonight. I can't get going in the morning.
Last year I only skied one time. And boy did I suffer. But the year before I was able to go nine times and it felt good. I don't go very far, but it is a good work out.
That is cool that you have automatic shift on the bus. You must have a cool head to be able to handle all of the kids. That would make me really nervous. But you sound good at it. I would worry too about being done and find some kids that I forgot to drop off or something. But it sounds like you are really good at that. I wish I had that quality like you do.
Do you get the summers off or do the kids go to school all year around? Here they are off for the summer but my step son's kids went all year. They were living in Arizona then. It would be hard to get use to the change.
I really hope that you had a wonderful day. The days go by so fast any more, I guess that is a part of me getting older.
We had sunshine today too. The high of about 28 degrees, tomorrow it is suppose to be in the 30's, major heat wave.LOL.
I hope that you have a great evening,
Thanks for writing back,
hugs,

I forgot, I meant to mention that I am sorry that you got bit by that dog. I am a dog lover too and I tried to help a german shepard pup that was hurt, I also got bit but not that bad. Luckily he was found by a friend of mine and taken to german shepard rescue. He was beautiful and I understand he got a good home. They don't mean to bite, I think that they are just scared. You must really love dogs, I think that is cool. I have a shepard and an australian cattledog/pit bull mix. They are my babies.
I am sorry about your mom and dad, it sounds like you were really close to them. I hope you have only good memories of them through out the holidays. I know it must be hard for you. But I feel that they are looking over you from above, and loving you like they did here on earth.
Hugs again,
Karen
