Here is Wen

Hi Kitt, 

Thanks for writing, I have felt rather guilty about not being on the boards, but I just am not sure that I should be offering advice to anyone because I feel as though I’m just barely hanging on.  But, there are times that I’ve been lurking here and there and there have been times that I feel like I could and should give a little advice but again, not sure I should offer advice to anyone.   

Honestly though, I am doing better than just barely hanging on - I am doing ok and actually feel a little stronger each day, but feel like everything scares me.  I don’t go out anywhere to speak of because it scares me.  I know that I have to at some point because I will never get over the agoraphobia if I don’t.  After the holidays are over, I plan to join the Bipolar Support Group that has just started locally – I’m hoping this will help.

During all of this madness – hospitalization, etc – my mother passed away (about 1.5 weeks ago).  So that hasn’t helped my general mood any.  Even though she and I didn’t get along and really had a distant relationship (at best), it’s still very sad that she’s gone.  I didn’t go to the funeral as most of the family on that side don’t like me and being so “fragile” I just felt it better that I not go.  But my kids went, so there was some representation from me and that’s great.  My mother’s passing has been harder to deal with than I thought it would be.  I honestly didn’t think I would have such a difficult time getting through this.

I will pop in to the boards this week and see if I can get caught up on what’s been going on.  I am doing okay, even with everything going on – I’m just finding it difficult to get myself and my life together again.  I know, I know – baby steps – my therapist keeps reminding me of this.   

Kitt - yes, please feel free to post my note to you – I don’t mind.  Thank you ever so much for caring so much about me to write to see how I’m doing.  This just proves one more time how supportive and loving the Healing Well family really are.  I too wish you were here so that you could help get me through this.

Big Hugs to all,

Wen

Dear Wen,

Take your time sweetie, and post when your ready.  Who better to give advice and support then someone who is living through this and remember we are here to  support you to.

I know how hard it is to deal with the death of someone we were related to even if the relationship was not always a  good one.  Family dynamics make problems for so many. 

I also hid out at home for a long time too or if I went out, I wanted to go right back home.  I did not want to run into "Happy"  people who would ask me.............."Are you enjoying your retirement?"  I wanted to say "Yes it was always my dream to retire early because I was depressed and having panic attacks."  But I refrained and instead tried not to run into anyone.

I felt so sad, and angry, yes, wondering why me..............but I did one day start to get better and yes I still have bad days and once in a while a bad week. 

Please give yourself hugs for how well you are doing and know we are right here and praying for you.

You are one great Lady.  Just be you, and you will make it.

Love

Kitt

Wen,

I'm so sorry that things are so difficult for you right now, and terribly sorry to hear about your mom's passing.  Although your relationship was not the best, it is still difficult to lose a parent.  I do hope that you will feel up to coming here again soon, we are all here to support you and help you through the tough times.  Come back when you are feeling up to it and until then, take care of yourself!

Wen, sorry to hear of everything that has been going on in your life. One step at a time is the right attitude and be proud of everything that you achieve no matter how small, they all count. Relax, try to enjoy the Christmas festivities and will be thinking of you. Love Jodie xx
Smile and the world will smile with you
