So, I have once again came to my safe place and that is this board.  I have a list of problems in my life right now and I don't know what to do Cry

My depression is fighting to come out.  I let a little out talking to a friend.   I want to list it all on here, but because this is a public message board, I will just say....

-I lost my job.  (worked there for over 12 years)

-Having new health issues occur and tired of doctors.

-Need to seriously lose weight.

-On several medications that the pharmacy told me today interact with one another, so have to decide if it is worse to not take medication for thyroid problems, or acid reflux, and then there are the anti-depressants interacting with all this. 

There is more to list, but I don't want to sound like I am whinning.  I appear totally fine to everyone around me, but really I am not okay.

Thanks for letting me share.

It wont let me leave a comment! I am sorry you are hurting. I know what the job stuff is like. I am working now but as a cashier. You will find something! You are a very sweet person and a company would be lucky to have you. Remember that (:

If there is more to list that you want to share, go ahead and list it!  This is a place to let things out...you know that...and we're here to support each other.  From what I've seen in the short time I've been here, no one on here is going to think you're whiny.  ((Heidi))

Thank you both for your kind comments!!  I am doing better Smile

Things have not changed, not got better, but I think my attitude has changed since I posted that.

It has been a long exausting past week, but I should be listing the things that are good in my life, instead of the bad.

I just had a real low moment when I posted, but it is amazing how changing your attitude towards things, can change your feelings.  I am doing better.

How are you both doing?

Im doing really well. Work is good, I am busy, husband good. My neice is in the hospital and has been for almost two weeks because of her anorexia and depression, she won't follow the doctor's orders. Its sad, but I am still moving forward with my life though I wish I could help her.

I'm doing pretty well.  I had a really low day yesterday, ended up sitting around in scrubby clothes and eating chocolate cake...that probably didn't help.  I did manage to end it with a 700m swim and a 2.4 km, which was good.  I felt a bit better after that.  Today has been pretty good.  Walked 4 km with the dog and will go swimming later...did tons of laundry...now I'm doing paperwork.  Exercise seems to keep me on the stable side of things.
