I do know that in the end worrying about things will not help at all, trying to decide just what will happen in the future is a waste and to stress and worry about it causes me nothing but trouble.......

BUT........I just wait for it all to happen. It's not if, it's WHEN. I know it will happen. DH will loose his job, we will loose the house, go into bankruptcy, ect. That is all I can see in my head. I hold my breath each day to see if there is any news. I worry about each night he goes to work wondering if he will call to tell me the bad news.

I can't really talk to him because it all gets to him too and he doesn't need my crap on top of it. I am trying to pay off what bills I can, and save what I can, but I know it won't be enough and things will go crazy.

I worry about becoming really depressed again, it was soooo bad last year that I just don't want to go there again, but I feel like it will happen and I don't want to really talk to anyone because of what they might tell me.

Am I nuts or what!!!!

self help books on how to stop worry have helped many to get better, just follow their advice

sadly some are too proud to accept any advice from books..... eyes

I don't know, for me it's not so much the worry, it's the facts and such. I did pretty well today, and am feeling pretty good, hopefully it will last.

Hi Suzy..you Are a worry wart..but we love you just the way you are :-)
You know the facts as you see them - you know what Could happen and you know what Might happen..but what you don't know is 'When'...so you have taken action...you are paying off bills and trying to save - fantastic Suzy! Instead of standing still and waiting for every thing to happen you are dealing with the situation in the best way possible - give yourself some praise girlfriend - I for one am proud of you!
By the way you can never go back to square one with depression..you've already been there and done that..maybe you will have setbacks from time to time..but that's ok because you have learned skills to combat the worst of it..and you have us to talk to eh? tongue

Thanks. Yes, I have been able to take alot of steps forward, ever so often, a step or two back. I am better focused about how things are and that I can only do what "I" can do.

I take it day by day and try not to get to far ahead of myself, that's a hard thing at times. I actuallyl got some stuff done today, the mountain of laundry is now just a large hill. LOL I also got part of the family room painted.

For the most part I do feel better about things, but at times my thoughts just get the best of me and it is sometimes hard to get it all calmed down.
