  Well I'm back alive lol, I think that I got thing's back together now. nothing beats a little time alone by the old camp fire to think things out, I rode back and loaded up the horses and drove straght to my counseling place and had a good talk with him, funny I parked the truck and trailer right under the covered unloading zone in frount and told them I needed to see him now.
 Once inside we had a good talk and he then called my doctor for me and told him about all that was going on and sent me straght over there and we talked a bit and he gave me something stronger than the valium and lexapro for my depression and told me that the reason that my Dad my not have told me about his health decline from the diabetes so not to stress me out more then I'm em now and my Mother is doing fine now. Do you know how hard it is to find a parking spot at a Doctors office with a horse trailler in tow lol I think I may have pissed off a few ppl with my parking job there too. But at lease they put me straght into the Doctor when I got there and that they are all going to back me up 100% with my hearing.
 
  Thank y'all for being there for me at my time of need it's kind of like having a 2nd family here that one can talk too that know about the daily stress we can go though in are lives.

 I'm glad you liked the horses in tow it was kind of funny but I'm doing fine now on the new meds so far, kind of glad I got out of the hills when I did, my wife called me on the cell and said we got a snow storm coming in (we got 5" and they said we should be getting more) glad to see the snow it's been so cold this past month. The doc did say that I should go home and take a bath frist the next time  I show up lol I guess he wasn't to fond of the smell on me from the horses and the rabbits I got for my dinner.

But it good to hear from you all again.

Glad you are back on track and had a good trip!

I never did gymkahna, just some English/Western pleasure when I was a teen. Now I just trail ride (when I have the time and can get myself motiviated!).

I must say that riding and the initial fear and worry I have is the one area where my anxiety gets me really angry. I was always a very confident rider. Now most times I have to force myself to get the horses out. I always have fun once I get going, but I miss the anticipation of getting out! I get REALLY nervous with my kids riding. A big part is that until recently I never had "beginner" horses. Early this year we lost our old app. My daughter had been doing pretty good on him, but he could spook pretty good every so often, so I kept her at a walk/jog in the ring. Needless to say my fearless daughter was getting pretty bored with that!

This spring we found a WONDERFUL 18-20 year old grade quarter horse. He was a lesson horse (ring and trails). He is bomb-proof, smooth gated, very well trained and adapts to his rider's level of competence. He'll stand still until you tell him to move (I'm used to fidgeters!) and is SO tolerant, yet is still responsive. After being used to being worked just about every day I was worried how he would be after just hanging out for a few weeks, but he was great!

He has one vice - he is girthy. Although the last few times he didnt even flinch. Havent tried tacking him while tied up yet though. An extra bonus is that he looks quite a bit like my first and favorite horse! My daughter loped for the first time last week. It is so refreshing to have a horse I can trust with riders other than myself!

My other guy was 6 when we got him about 9 years ago. We had trouble fitting him with a saddle - I came off a few times till we got that straightened out. But I think of those bucking episodes every time since (even tho he hasnt done it again!). He's fairly steady, but herd-bound. The old guy could care less! My older daughter rides him most (when home from college).

I think you are so brave to venture out on your own like that! (and I envy you!). I really must make more time for riding - for my and my horses sakes. I've been telling myself "next year..." for too many years.

Take care,
Karen

 Thanks Karen I do feel a whole lot better now, We got are arab. for my daughter for her 4h this past spring he's 19 now and came from a bad home I think we put on 100pds on him now and he's looking pretty good now. I don't think he's been worked with in sometime but once we got him settled down and started working him it was like it all came back and he has had some good training sometime in the past and he really good on the trails but he's still a little spooky at times and he's not gun shy so that's a good thing

 The other to quarter horses we mainly use for the trails now they both are good rodeo horses and good with the barrels and roping but but I just can't do that kind of stuff right now but I'm showing my daughter the barrels racing for next summer.

Hi freezing, so glad to hear that you are feeling better. I'm also glad to see that you have a sense of humor. LAUGHTER can be the BEST MEDICINE, ya know? I'm from Southern California and your posts just crack me up. You are exaggerating right? We have a commercial for the L.A. County Fair where 3 girls and a Mom all look at a sheep and say "mooo" and other noises for the sheep. The guy in the pen just looks at them so utterly disturbed and says "baaaaa." It is so funny - my favorite commercial. Of course, I'm not that bad but some of your stories make me wonder. Take care.

Welcome back freezinginAK I'm so happy to hear your doing better. Sometimes it does take us just getting away alone to clear our minds and there is no better place to go then where you did. I bet the horse feels better too can't say the same for the rabbits...lol. Please keep us posted on how the new meds are working for you.
(((HUGS)))

 I see that you have never been to Alaska, this State is still consitered a 3rd world country with only around 650,000 ppl living here and is 1/3rd the size of the lower 48 with only 2 main citys Anchorage and Fairbanks, the area that I live in is bigger then some states there and we have about 50,000 ppl living here and are spread out. Just to get most of the villges here are you must fly in to get to them, where I live you have to drive 25 miles just get to a paved road and yes we even have an outhouse but we do have a bathroom inside but without running water we have to haul water in to use it and yes we do like in middle of moose and bear country here even some of the areas use the rivers when they freeze up as a roadway to get to other villges in winter so as you can see the way that we live is differant than yours, and as most Alasken's know that when you go hiking in the woods here you bring along a gun becouse the bears use the same trails and it's not fun to run into a 800pd brown bear or a female with cubs. two to three ppl are killed by brown bears every year up here or mauled by them.
