I'm feeling pretty out myself right now, so from one down person to another. . . I wish you the best :) Just remember that tomorrow is another day (a little too "Gone With The Wind":), and that you are a wonderful and kind lady. You are NOT disposable either, because we all would be lost without you :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)

Hello Ladies,

My day has been right there with yours so we are now a trio.

Think positive thoughts, leaving no room for failure that you “just can’t do this.” I think we have to kick the stinkin thinkin to the curb.

Many hugs and prayers to both of you.

you are anything but disposable- although i know the feeling well. you have provided so much clarity and support for me, i cant thank you enough for your genuine, sweet replies. You have no idea how much your kind words have helped me.

You are STRONG. You are BEAUTIFUL. You are WORTHY. You are NEEDED. You are LOVED. You are EXCEPTIONAL.

prayers for you, Maz XX

Noooooo, definitely not, you are not disposable, Marie-Claire. But as one who has felt pretty lousy lately, I am right there with you and I know how you feel. But we can kick down our negative thoughts and make the best of things. I send you lots of hugs and hope that together we can remember to take it all a step at a time.

Everyone... thank you so much for your caring support. Boy it sure has been a rough go lately. My PTSD is so out of control... I'm having terrible , horrible thoughts at the weirdest times. I have been going for my walk every day... something new for me.... The ocean walk has always 'restored' this tired old soul, but lately I find no joy in that.
I managed to get thru my grandaughters 1st birthday party.... no one noticed.... but I felt like crying inside... I just smiled and sang and did what I was supposed to do....
There is something wrong with me.... I have always, even when things were rough, been able to find joy in simple things.... this is frightening.
Today as I was walking... a picture of my daughter dead by the road suddenly popped into my head... I was screaming in my head too... .I had to fight that image with all my might... talked to myself...
"Mary, that is not going to happen" etc...
My doctor has told me that if this doesn't improve by January she is going to up my antidepressant. She thinks maybe the holidays are tirggering some bad memories/ issues. Everyone has a hard time at xmas...
My thoughts and prayers are with you all....
so much crying lately... I'm starting to look like I have two Hoover dams under each eye.!
