hi my screen name is Display.

just feeling sad and lonely today. i know it is just feelings. but i also know that most other forums i write to (Facebook, emails, chat room) I don't always get to say what i am really thinking and feeling. at least i can do that here.

i have problems getting out of the house (fear and anxiety). today my task is to go to the grocery. some parts of that will be hard (fear and anxiety).

so mostly just wanted to say how i am feeling today.

thanks for listening,
Display

Hi Display,

Fear and anxiety can do that to us. But I think once you get out, you are going to feel better. When we are anxious or depressed, we tend to isolate ourselves from others. And after awhile, it is a real task to leave the house. I know, I had to do laundry today and I was a little anxious about it, but I went to the laundromat, and even got a dairy queen and went to the farmer's market. So I got a lot done. I am truly proud of what I accomplished. There was a time that I couldn't do any of that by myself because of fibromyalgia keeping me down.

I really think it will do you good to get out and you will be glad that you did it.

One step at a time. Baby steps if you have to. And let us know how it goes.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Display,

Going to the grocery may make you feel a little better. You will be surrounded by people and you will get your grocery shopping done. It may distract you from the lonely feeling. I think it will be good for you and will help you out of the lonely feeling.

Hope you feel better.

Take Care

Display here.

Just wanted to report, I did go to the grocery and had a fine time. And it really helped to be out and about. I still felt sad when I got home (nowhere else to go), but it was nice to have a break from anxious and depressed feelings.

The end.

I am so glad that you got out. Just these little things can help us. Sometimes the little things are big steps for us. Especially when we are isolating. Keep up the fantastic work...
