I know how you feel. some days are worse than others.. Life is hard and its not just our imaginations..

One time I took a class in resiliency and it taught me that we can have huge problems all the time but it all comes back to whether or not we bounce back.. I am not making light of what you are feeling but I just had that thought in my mind just now.

There are some days where I say life isnt fair as I would so love to live in a nice apt. but dont know if that could ever happen but I hold onto the hope that it could.. I am also looking at what I have in my life that is really good and God lets me know it everytime.

Please hang in.. Angels are all around you..

Hi Promise, there is a bible passage about God lifting us up out of the mud but don't want to force Christian beliefs on anyone else.

I know my therapist has explained we take 2 steps forward and 1 back or sometimes we go back more than forward and that book on grieiving mentioned the wilderness and getting lost but finding our way out at some point.

I am having my own issues as you saw on the other board, but maybe just do the "next best thing".
