Dear Hopegirl, Gosh you are having a tough time and if I lived closer to you, I would come over and help you. How old are you and where do you live, what is your occupation? YOu do need a good dr. to get you on the right medications. Have you tried any forms of treatment?
I wish I could help you, but what I can do is lend you my shoulder for you to lean on, ears so you can vent and pour your heart out and I can pray for you!!! Hang in there!!! Your motto is the one I used every day, "one day at a time", and if that is too much then take it one hour at a time!!!
