hi my screen name is Display.

i am just feeling lousy today. I have some discomfort with my teeth - it seems to be moving from one tooth to another. i have bad teeth and i'm always worried that something will go wrong. don't feel i need to go to the dentist yet - the discomfort may go away. but it is stressful worrying about what is going wrong. i did switch my toothpaste (sensitivity) and it could just be a reaction to that. still, i don't like not knowing what is going on.

otherwise i am just depressed about my job search. there is a kind of networking which is recommended by many - reaching out on the phone. i don't seem to be able to do that. just sitting here playing endless games of solitaire.

like i said, i just feel lousy. i sometimes wonder if i can go on in this state.

today is my bipolar support group and i am forcing myself to get ready to go. when i feel this down, i would sort of like to just get back in bed. but i know i wouldn't be able to sleep.

in short, in a lot of pain this morning and would appreciate some support.

thanks for listening,

I understand your pain and wanting to stay in bed. Worse thing you could do!

Proud of you for forcing yourself to go to group. You will feel better once you are there.

Once you get moving things will perk up a little.

Stay Strong

Be still and know there is Peace.

Hi display,

I know how you feel! It's true though, once you get moving the day gets better. You can be proud of yourself today for going to your group session! Afterwards, you will feel better knowing you accomplished something! Each day, you should find something to accomplish and once it's done, then you can play your games as a reward. It could be taking a 15 min walk, 30 min bike ride, an hour looking for jobs and applying for the ones that are interesting to you, cook a new recipe, going to your group session,... The more you do this, the more it will be easier :-) make yourself a calendar every week in advance so you know what you have to do during the upcoming week.

Be strong and take care,

getting by

Hi Display,

Do go to your group therapy. You will feel better if you do. I know it is hard, I wanted to go back to bed today but forced myself to stay up. We have ups and downs frequently. Keep plugging along. You can do this.

We are here to support you...

Hugs, Karen...
