You know the last couple days of helping others and feeling a sense of fulfillment is sometimes a passing glory when you have depression or not.

They say that when you do good things, it comes back around and brings goodness to you. Now don't get me wrong I don't look for gratitude or any other acknowledgments for what I do, I never had I do everything out of the goodness of my heart and always have and never have I ever regret ed any of the acts.

But, I am depressed today, severely!! I guess I am just really fed up with everything going sour for me. I wont go into specifics but yesterday after spending a much needed day with my daughter, I started having car problems again. Of course, I am broke and have no means of taking care of the repairs as usual. I guess what I am saying is this...........I can feel at the top of the world helping others but it depresses me that goodness is nowhere near me, EVER!! I guess I am just sick of nothing good coming my way when I am in need. I dont even have anyone that truly cares about the trials I am going through and I am wondering why I even try. I feel so alone and I thank that adds to the matter because I have no one to talk with about the good and bad things that happen in my life! Ok, I do have you guys but it would just be nice to have someone to tell my accomplishments to and see a smile or someone that I can lean on and cry to when I need TLC. I am really bitter right now because I want someone to care about me and what I go through. No one knows because I have learned to put on a face. However, trying to keep up with the hurt that I really have is killing me. I keep hoping for just one small thing to happen that would restore my FAITH in the fact that good things can happen for me.

I am so tired.

When we do good things for others, it does come back to us. But it isn't always right away. And it isn't the same person that we helped. So in time you will be repaid for all the wonderful things that you do for others. Try to bring that good feeling back. Remember the little girl that you helped. She is so lucky that she had you there to comfort her. That means a lot in this world. There aren't many people that would have done what you did. Try to create that feeling that you had when the emts were asking your findings. That was so cool.

Things will get better my friend. You are a kind and compassionate person and you will be blessed for that.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Luv and hugs, Karen
