Was wondering how you are Heidi and just checking in...

We got hit yesterday with a lot of snow.

It felt so good to be able to get out for a little bit today...:)...

I am so looking forward to Spring/Summer.

How is everyone coping/dealing?

I have both good and bad days...does anyone ever feel somewhat "Numb"?

Thanks,

Lorie

Hi Lorie,

Thanks for asking.  I wish I felt numb (as you asked in your post).  Been kind down lately.

Found out today a friend of mine who lives in England passed away from Leukemia.  It came on quick.

I only take one anti-depressant this past year (Prozac) as I decided to go off Effexor.

Wondering about asking the dr. to put me back on low dose of Abilify. 

How are you, Lorie?

Thanks so much for responding Heidi...

It means a lot.

I just think I am so over-loaded and over-whelmed with emotions I feel "Numb"...

So many losses recently, it's a lot to cope/deal with.

Miss my friends I have lost and worry about my Dad...:(...and my sister.

Moving to a new city has had some challenges but I feel like it's home...although I do miss my dd and my friends I know this was best for myself and my ds.

I am so glad I have you and this Board Heidi.

I would talk to your doctor and maybe he will put you back on it.

My NP listens really well to me...:)...

I am on a different Anti-Depressant and I chose to stay with my current dosage.

I know I am grieving...:(...it's just so much loss in a short amout of time.

My friend was murdered so that has been hard, so very hard.

Still shocking, no real Closure...kwim?

She's just "Gone"...:(...and as I write this tears are streaming down my face.

I got out of an "Abusive" relationship and finally I made the decision to move.

Away from everything familiar for my Peace of Mind.

I am Proud of myself, it took Courage but there is still a Sense of Loss...kwim?

Making new friends and exploring my new city...:)...

Thanks ever so much for Listening, I appreciate being able to come here and vent.

I know it will get better but the Pain is ALWAYS there...kwim?

People sometimes really don't get Depression and how "Dark" our World can be...

If they ONLY knew....

<3

Lorie

ps I am so sorry about the Loss of your friend...

Hi guys;

I am so sorry for all of the changes and losses you are incurring and feeling numb.. As for me I feel kind of lost too and feeling like so many people are non supportive around me..

I am also studying new things and metaphysical things and its throwing me for a loop..Although I enjoy it ; it is confusing the heck out of me.. (long story)..

Its cold and we had another huge storm with three feet of snow so that is stressful..

I guess change throws us for a loop and we need to get used to it.. Its pretty challenging and just when we have all in place we get thrown many wrenches .

take care
