If I answer my own question by the time I get to the end of my post- do you still want to see it?

I just spent quite a bit of time writing a very long post about how nothing is going right for me- and this is the worst season for me ever- and I keep forgetting to take meds- and I keep getting sicker and sicker with other conditions and I feel out of control-and- and -and... and I answered my own question and told myself to just buckle down, get control of myself take my meds when I'm supposed to.  Sure I feel like crap and the world is going wrong- I haven't taken my meds.  Even if I didn't have a good reason for it I would feel like the world is caving in.  Take the first step (take tonight's meds and refill the case) and wallow in self-pity later if I still feel like I want to.
On the other hand- I am sure I am a harsher taskmaster to myself than anyone else would be.  Also, If I don't post my thought process, and I am wrong, I don't get anyone else's input. 
What do you think?  Should we post the ones where we come back to answer our own question at the end?  Should we post the ones where we are just venting and don't really have a question?

Yes! Keep posting! Remember how good it is to know there are others out there going through the same things you are? I forget my meds all the time! :) It's terrible, but true. Anyway, it's good just to hear one anothers' voices at times.

hope you feel better,

Thank you

i am going to start a new post to do a quick rundown on what is goin on with me.

I had even more happen since I wrote this post last night.

It's like circumstances are trying to sabatoge me.

But I think I will nap for a little while. What happened last night has me on some pretty major pain meds and I am a bit out of it. I was FREAKING OUT at the doctor"s office today so I am also on a healthy dose of anti-anxiety meds.

When I wake up I will let you know what happened.

  Of course you should post. If you can come to some understanding in your own post than the rest of us can help you figure out if it sounds good. THe best answers are those we find ourselves, but running them by a bunch of people who know what you are going thru can only give you reassurance that you came up with the right answer.

It's like the way journalling unlocks the jammed doors...sometimes even
better than telling it to someone. Somehow writing about problems moves
to the core issues...so here at the BP Forum you can journal and tell us too...
the best of both worlds!!!
