I'm doing a bit better Janet. Thank you for asking. I had a small break down at church yesterday. I got talking to one of the ladies about a charity drive we are doing for Christmas. I wanted to know exactly what they needed. My step kids have outgrown their church shoes (worn about 15 times & are like new), some of their pants and other things too. They only get to wear these things when they are her at my house. Long story for another time. Anyway I also have several coats, blah blah. And I just started to cry. I told her I wanted to give as much as possible, as much as I could and what was appropriate. They have done so much for me and mine. They have helped us out with food orders and have paid our rent for the past two or three months because I'm not working right now and the ex-wife is taking quite a bit for child support from hubby. Another long story for another time. Anyway, I'm sobbing, absolutely sobbing. I ended up telling her what was going on, the bipolar, my breakdown on Wednesday, everything. She hugged me so hard. Told me to call her if I need anything. Then she found my bishop and had me go talkto him. So I sobbed some more. But you know what? Telling these two people what happened to me made me feel even more at peace. I don't know why. I feel better today than I have in about a month or so. I hope it can remain so.
You are such a sweet lady. Are you doing any better? Are things going ok with you? I haven't been keeping up as I usually do with all the posts. I just read one here and there instead of really reading them, which is bad I know. Others need support too.
