You have given me such wonderful things to think about so I'm happy to try and offer some encouraging words to you today.
How much Paxil are you on? I don't remember if you said before? You know my situation right now so you know I am kinda depressed. I was just bumped up to 50mg yesterday. Not sure when it will kick in but sooner rather than later would be good. Is Paxil all you're taking?
What's happened in the past few days that's different? Maybe your son being sick has finally taken it's toll on you. Or....maybe you felt "needed" to take care of your son when he was sick and now that he's better, you don't feel "needed" anymore? Just a thought. I know you were probably occupied taking care of him and now that he's better, you need something else to occupy your mind.
And what are you doing drinking coffee? haha....I was told to get rid of the caffeine first thing! My downfall is caffeinated sodas so I'm having a hard time getting off the caffeine but I am trying.
Do you work at home? Have you thought about volunteering somewhere to give yourself something to do during the day? Do you like animals? Volunteering at the SPCA or the Zoo?
I feel for you, girl! I have those days, too. Lately, most of the time. Maybe together, we can figure each other's issues out and get back on track.
To: YOU Date: TODAY From: GOD Subject: YOURSELF Reference: LIFE This is God. Today I will be handling All of your problems for you. I do Not need your help. So, have a nice day. I love you.

This is Kitt. I believe we use up a large amount of bandwidth and I know we have had requests to add new forums but the Administrator has just no at this time. He is a great person but I know financial wise we have to be careful of our use of resources too.
I know eating disorders is a very prominent topic.
I wish we could accomodate all requests................sorry.
Hugs to youKitt

How are you doing today TFC? Just thinking about you....
I know what you mean about the cleaning for her when she comes over. Mine would come over and make comments like "looks like you need to dust". She would look at my ceiling fan or see dust on something. Degrading....yes I know how you feel!
I finally quit cleaning so much for her though. I get sick of how she treats me but I wasn't going to clean "extra" just because she was coming. She still says things but I ignore her and move on to the next topic.
Don't feel bad about avoiding her....I do the same thing and I love my mom. It's tough when the whole family is there....have you thought about moving to a close town? That way, you're still close to the rest of the family but not so close to your mom? Or even moving an hour away might help. Since you live so close to your mom, is she always over there? If so, if you lived further away, maybe she'll appreciate you more.
Have you thought about having her come over instead of you going there all the time? Maybe she can occupy your son while you do things around the house.
Does your husband want to go to college? Seems that nowadays, if you have a lot of experience, college isn't always required. But if he wants to do something different besides factory work, maybe he can go part time while working. Or if you're going to look at jobs for him, maybe you guys could live in a small town close to a big city and he could work in the big city making more money, likely. Come on down to Houston! Honestly....can't remember if you said what state you are living.
I know what you mean about being obligated to visit mom and granny but I'm serious about asking them to come over. In fact, maybe your mom can go pick your granny up and they both come over to your place.
Yes, my dear....time to break away from being next door. Even a closeby town would be better than right next door! I hope everything works out. I guess sometimes, next door is convenient but I'm guessing moreso of a problem than convenience at this point.
Awww....you're sweet! I just feel for you because we seem to have similar mom issues. Seems that we relate well!
Plus, thinking about someone else's problems takes my mind off of my own, if only for a minute. Love ya' bunches, too!
