Thanks!

I know... "hmmm." It may well be the depression still rearing its ugly head - I had not thought of that. I have noticed that when I quit taking it, waking up in the morning is a bit easier. I guess thinking about it, I'm not really "tired," just don't want to be up. But, thank yo...

Help with Side-effects?

I'm not good about taking medications - never have been. You know, where the doctor prescribes 10 days of anti-biotic and you only take 5 because you feel better? So, anyway, my doctor prescribed a very small dose of Prozac about 2 weeks ago. I can't lie and say that I didn't see any difference in h...

You can lead a horse to water...

Keep being the great friend that you are - but, and this is important (!), remember to take care of yourself in the process. I have an ex-husband-to-be who has a serious substance abuse problem. I have tried unsuccessfully (and cried alot) to get him to get some professional help, help from friend/f...

Saturday

Hi, Hopeful, Today is another day. I have a daughter, 17. We are getting reading for Prom and Graduation. Should be great, right? Mostly, it is. There's just that dumb dark cloud hanging over me. I keep thinking that one day I'll wake up, and while it won't feel like it used to (which is better that...

I don't know your story - just the little bit in this thread. I'm always willing to listen (read).
A really good friend told me not to beat myself up over needing a day or two to lay in bed and be sad. I've done that, but I'm not sure it's enough.
Hoping tomorrow is better!

Hi, Hopeful! I saw you checked in on my question - thank you so much! Since that posting, my life has really turned upside down. Some bad and some very good. My husband and I have officially separated. His substance abuse is so much worse than he or I allowed myself to believe. I know he needs help,...

You're very kind. If getting her out makes her uncomfortable, maybe you could offer to go to her for a game night, or a girly movie night. I know when I'm very low I don't like to go out - having a friend come to me really helps. I'm sure your friend will recognize what a great friend you are! Best ...

What's in your CD player?

Okay, so I'm having a really bad day. Cannot concentrate on work to save my life. Feels like my chest has bands all around it. So, I thought, drum up some conversation... Right now, in my car CD player, here's what's playing: Nickelback - For All the Wrong Reasons The Wreckers - Stand Still, Look Pr...

Good Question

Hi, llama, If you're posting here, you haven't given up... that's a good start! I can't answer your question "where is help?" I believe it is different for everyone. It took some time, but I have found some comfort being able to come here and know that someone is reading what I have to say...

Monday

Good morning, Coach, It's Monday - all day. It's supposed to rain later today, and I'm actually hoping it does. It's really hot already down here in Florida. And, I could really use a nap - I know, it's not even 9:00 a.m., but wanting to crawl back in bed, none-the-less. The weekend was up and down,...

Hey!

Coach, I can't even put into words how much I would like to have someone to speak to here. I can't chat due to computer restrictions here at work, and computer access at home used to be monitored by a husband who was not good to anger. We have separated - for which I should be grateful and relieved....

Hi, Bree, I know you feel like you can't breath - but kudos to you for sticking with your family and home. I didn't. I moved 550 miles from my parents and home over 8 years ago for a man who travelled with his work. Now after almost 9 years of marriage (and abuse and alcoholism), we are calling it q...

Hi, CyCoLoner, Your story really touched me. I work in a high school - a fairly large high school, by my standards - around 1700 students. I am sorry to read about your friend, but very glad to hear that you were pushed into getting some help before completing an action that cannot be undone. Everyo...

Thank You!

Stephen, First, let me say, thank you for your observation. Second, I certainly did not intend to sound like I am "ranting." It was merely a question. I haven't responded to previous forums more because I fear that my own supports won't necessarily be qualified. I am afraid to respond to o...
