Hey Tina, so sorry to hear that you are having a rough time right now. Depression sneaks up on me and kicks my butt every now and then. I live with it all the time, it just gets worse sometimes.

That is the main thing that kept me away for awhile. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers (as well as everyone else's here I'm sure) I sure hope things start getting better soon for you.

Take the time you need to heal and start feeling better. We will all be here when you get back...take care.

Hi my dear friends,

Thank you for your kind words, and thank you Suzane for starting this thread.

I won't go into all the boring details - other than to say that I'm really at the end of my rope w/ being sick. I've written it here MANY times that I've reached an acceptance w/ my health/pain issues. But - every once in awhile - it creeps back in and I'm mad, depressed, etc. about not being the person I used to be. I want to crawl in a hole and not get out.

I'll get there, though, and your many thoughts and prayers keep me going. I honestly mean that. I haven't been posting much - but I do try to read as much as possible and I consider you family and care for each one of you.

And, yes, my babies turned 1 year old yesterday. How can that be?? I was too sick to do anything yesterday - but we are doing a little cake and family (VERY low-key) on Saturday. They are the cutest things ever....It's a year later - and I still can't believe I have identical twin girls. Yep, all my kids keep me going... thank God for them.

I love you all..... and I'll check in more soon. --Tina

I'm losing my brain. I posted a response - but it didn't appear. I guess I didn't hit "send"? I've lost it.

Anyhow, thanks for the many prayers and friendship. I appreciate it more than you know.

We are all sick w/ colds and such; it's Hailee and Ally's first "real" cold - I guess that's pretty good for being a year old. So, we haven't even done cake yet for them.... oh well, at least they are little and don't know!

I hope you are doing ok and having as low pain as possible; you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Also, thanks again to everyone for thinking of me.... it's friends like you that pull me through the hard times.

Love, Tina

Hi Tina,
I'm not sure if I've met you yet on here or not, but I wanted to jump in and say a few words.
I've read several of your posts, so I sort of feel like I know you just a bit...your kids sound amazing and it sounds like you are tremendously blessed.  There have been times in my life when my kids were the only thing that kept me going.  I have 2 grown daughters.   I, too, have struggled with depression here and there...and there have been times when I honestly did not think I could cope for one more minute.  But I'm not gonna go into talking about myself right now.  I can understand about not feeling like talking to anyone.  I've been that way lately, too.  Not even talking to close friends who have left voice mails. 
Sweetie, I really hope that brighter days are ahead for you.  I care about you, too...even though we've never met.  You take good care of yourself.
