A week ago today, I was really excited: I had a job, a new apt., and I was feeling on top of the world - or so I thought. After only a week of working at the job, I got fired. They didn't give me any feedback, and I was too upset at the time to ask for any, so I just packed my stuff and left. I called my supervisor yesterday three times, and left one message. I know she was at her desk and just wasn't taking me calls, but the receptionist kept saying "she's stepped away from her desk". Ugh. So embarrassing. I'm more depressed than ever. Last night, I took myself out to the movies, so I shut off my phone. I didn't turn it on until this morning, and I had 12 messages from my friend telling me how worried she was about me. She called the police in the city I live in, called my parents in the middle of the night on the other coast, and freaked a lot of people out. The police went looking for me at the apartment I'm going to move into. They didn't find me, obviously, but I also got a call from the building manager asking was I ok. He called again this morning. Awkward. I am really depressed and now really embarrassed that people see how depressed I am.

Wow, you had a lot of people concerned about you. But that goes to show how much they care. So your phone was off, oh well. No real harm done that I can see. So I wouldn't be embarrassed about it. I would be happy that so many people cared about me.

I am sorry about your job. Is there anything that you can think of that you did? Or didn't do? Maybe it just wasn't meant for you. Are you looking elsewhere or is it too soon? I am sure you want to find another job as soon as you can. But I too would like a reason for the termination.

You are only human. So don't beat yourself up about this. It just goes to show that you could use some counseling or something. A job, I imagine. I feel kind of dumb for saying that, but I know you understand where I am coming from.

Will you be able to keep your apartment that you were moving into? Or will you have to stay where you are? I am really sorry, I have to say that again. It looked as if you were moving forward and to have that happen to you. But you will find a way to make it. What kind of a job was it and what were you doing? I think by law they have to tell you why they fired you. I would find out.

Let us know how you are doing. Know that we are here for you.

I just took my first ever dose of lithium. I don't know how to feel about it. I feel like I let the world down when I'm depressed (which is now all the time). I feel like I should have made more of the time I had being happy or at least trying to be happy. All I do now is cry. And try to sleep so I don't have to be awake anymore. I saw my doctor today, and he asked that I come in tomorrow too. I know he wouldn't have offered or suggested it if he wasn't genuinely concerned, but it makes me more depressed to think that I need that much help or need to be monitored that closely. I don't want to hurt anymore.

I hope that the lithium helps you. It may take a little time to start getting in your system. Keep us postted on how you are doing. It is a bummer to feel so sad all the time. Keep trying to think good thoughts. You are going to be feeling better soon. And know that we are here for the good and bad days. Keep us posted hon.
