hi my screen name is display.

having another hard day today. thinking somewhat that i might be better back in the hospital. going to see my therapist today.

i just feel very alone and other than my therapist, like there is nobody i can talk to.

i am very depressed over my inability to land a job. panicking really. in about another month my unemployment will end. i have some major dental work to get done too.

just needed to check in that this is where i am.

thanks for listening,

thanks JB1.

i feel really trapped by my anxiety about driving. i live in a city where you have to drive to get anywhere. we have been dealing with this anxiety in my therapy.

i am forcing myself to eat breakfast and then i will take a shower. sometimes this helps me to feel better.

today is my sister's birthday. i live with her. i don't want to be a big drag on her on her special day.

i don't feel so shaky now, as i did an hour ago. all my fears were right in my face, and i couldn't imagine going on.

now i know that today is just a hard day, and i must forget about all the big problems i have, at least until i feel better. for now, that must means taking a shower and getting dressed, and then going to therapy at 2pm.

thanks for listening,

Display,

So sorry you are having a bad day. I feel your pain, I really do. I have been where you are!

We say take one day at a time. Some days have to be taken an hour at a time!

Please go to mindfulness.org and do some reading it will help! I also recommend "The mindfulness Workbook" by Thomas Roberts, LCSW LMFT it has helped me overcome MANY fears.

Enjoy your sisters birthday, do some deep breathing and see the gift in a family member that cares

Dear Display,

I too am sorry to hear you're having such a rough day - I can totally relate, as many here can. When my day starts out that way and there's nothing in the world that's any good, just darkness and clouds, I take every moment as it comes. I stop worrying about what I HAVE to get done then or tomorrow, realising that no amount of worry will make a difference. I now go about with this 'philosophy' in my mind - Can I do anything about it right now? No. Then stop thinking about it and enjoy that weed with the pretty flower or watch that ant carry 5 times it's own weight.

Try to see just what's in front of you. Every single moment in life is filled with innumerable wonders. Doing this makes my day go smoother and I can actually feel the tension easing in my neck and shoulders. Sometimes just standing in a hot shower for 15 minutes puts things in a better light.

When my Fibro is flaring, depression usually follows so I force myself to go for a walk - even if it's only for 2 or 3 minutes - it gets the blood flowing allowing more oxygen into the body and toxins are forced out. To me, "toxins" are anything from pollution to "bad" feelings.

Just know, Display, that every day you're getting better - it may not seem so but as long as you take care of yourself, you're recovering. Better days WILL follow. As it is said - "Tomorrow the sun will rise again".

Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
