Hi Teresa,
 
I am so happy that your medication is starting to work for you.  I take it that you take it at bedtime.  Wow, feeling disoriented, how long does that last?   I hope not too long.  As that could be scarey to some. 
 
Don't let your friend drain you.  You are a good person for sticking with this.  Not everybody could handle having somebody around 24/7.  I am not one for that.  I like being alone too much.  But it can be nice to have some company from time to time.  I hope it all works out.  I hope that you can help her. 
 
Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.   Anything happening with the vns?  Let me know.
 
Take care,
 
Hugs, Karen

Thanks everyone~
I finally told my friend that she needed to make a decision by tomorrow morning or she would have to leave.  I dont want her too but I feel that if I dont give her anymore support that maybe she will make the right choice for her and her son.  I told her that sometimes we have to make tough decisions and most of us dont have 2 months to make them.  I talked with her about my past relationship that will always be the most significant thing in my life.  I even shared a few cards and photos with her to show her how tough decisions are.  Then I assured her that the decisions we make are not always the right ones but you eventually learn from them, sometimes even to late.
 
My depression has somewhat subsided and I am feeling more like me.  My cat Vegas is still sick and I dont think that she will make it much longer.  I wish things that I love were taken better care of and that I would understand that they may disappear at any given time. For all the lessions I have learned, I am still trying to understand the ones that I never understood.  It comes down to this, act positively from your lessons and never question anyone but yourself when you make a mistake.
 
Well I just wanted to touch base and let you know I am doing ok.

Thanks Teresa,
 
I am glad that you told your friend that.  It is time for her to make some decisions for herself and her son.  You did the right thing, imo. 
 
We do learn lessons from our past.  And even if they aren't good experiences, we still learn.  I think it gives us character in the long run.  Like I say, even if they weren't so nice.  We live and we learn. 
 
I am glad that your depression is subsiding.  Keep taking care of yourself and you will do fine.  One day at a time is all that we can do and I think that the sooner we learn that, the more free we are. 
 
Take care Teresa,
 
Hugs, Karen

Thanks everyone~
My computer is once again broken and I had overdue library books so I thought I would take a minute to catch you up.......
My friend is still with me and things have gotten really bad!  I have had the police to my house and my nerves are about shot.  I am still taking my zyrem at night and it is a very scary med!!!!!  However, I do sleep a little better through all this stuff.   My son starts school tomorrow and another year without him.  I am going to have to fight his father for residence for next school year, I guess he feels that I am not a good mother and my son should not be with me fulltime.
 
My life is just really screwed up and there are so many things in my life now that really have gotten to me and I have once again considered hospitalization.
 
I actually cried myself to sleep the other night because I realized that the few last months I have taken care of everyone but me and I am so tired!!!!
 
Sorry so much doom and gloom but welcome to my world.

Dear Teresa,
 
I don't understand why your friend has been staying with you for such a long time, it has been a couple of months now hasn't it?  shakehead    That would truly get on my nerves.  But I am a really private person too and don't handle company that well.  But you are going to have to say something to her and get her to leave if it is bothering you.  Why were the cops at your place?  Was it because of her?  This seems kind of toxic to me.  I wonder if it is healthy for you or not. 
 
Do keep us posted on how things are going for you.  I hope that things get better and that you are feeling well soon.  Let me know how you are.
 
Hugs, Karen
