Depressed - in need of support

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

OK, I'm doing it again. I' feeling sorry for myself. I'm worrying about all of my medical issues that I've been dealing with and all of the dcoctor's appointments I've had to keep. It's maddening. I just don't know what to do anymore with my health issues. On top of that I'm having problems because I withdrew from school for this currrent semester. As things stand right now, I might not be able to go back to school because I'm having problems with financial aid. I was going to call them today, but I'm in too bad of a mood. I guess TOM doesn't make it any easier either. UGH!

    I'm sorry to hear that things are stressful right now, but we all go through these periods. Just remember - this, too, shall pass. This stress is temporary. Soon, everything will work out. Until then, try doing other things to take your mind off them - exercise, talk with friends, volunteer, etc. Hang in there. emoticon

    My dd also has had alot of health issues since she was born. Mostly allergies. It gets to the point of going "What's next?!!!". I understand your frustration and I hope they find an answer soon. Sometimes there is an underlying problem that ties everything together and sometimes it's several things that cause 1 big headache. Hope they get to the bottom of things and get you back on the road to health. emoticon

    When you aren't feeling well it kind of takes over everything else. Take it one day at a time and focus on doing something for yourself each day. Take care and keep us posted so we can offer up support any time it's needed. emoticon

    *hugs* Going through school while sick is hard. I have bipolar and schizophrenia and I made it through 5 crazy years of college. I was in and out of the hospital, I would just take my books with me and study during free time. It can be done. It's hard... almost impossibly hard, but it can be done! I know about all the financial aid worries.... my mom didn't fill out the paperwork, so I had to get copies of her tax returns and do them myself. I ended up $50,000 in debt too. During the years after college that I could work, I paid off like $10,000 of it. Now that I'm on disability, it's deferred, but I make a tiny payment each month ($25) just to show I"m still trying to pay.

I hope everything works out for you! *hugs*

    I know how medical issues can take over your life. It can be very overwhelming. What I find helpful is to get a binder with some dividers and keep all of your medical paperwork in there. Once that's done, write down your list of questions or concerns for your doctor/s.

Just take things one at a time. Big things are easier to deal with in smaller quantities.

It stinks having to deal with one medical issue after another. Just take things one day at a time. You can't control the things around you. You can only control how you react to those things. Norman Vincent Peale really was right about the "power of positive thinking". Staying positive is one of the best things you can do to help get through these tough times emotionally and physically.

Keep calling the financial aid offices to get any issue resolved. Keep calling. Keep nagging them. As they say,"the squeaky wheel gets the grease".

    Hang in there! Things will work themselves out in time-not always our time which is NOW. It is overwhelming to struggle with so many issues at once. It wears you out.
I understand-recently having spent a great deal of time and effort on peeling back the layers of my own health issues. I was given some good advice which helped me.
First, one thing at a time. Take care of the most important, and try and not worry, the next step will await you. Often what you are fretting over never really occurs. Deal with the moment.
I also understand about the financial aid. You might ask for a deferment for reasons of health. Sometimes it can surprise you how it works out.
I feel the pain and frustration in your comments. I am sending you positive thoughts
for healing and peace.
TOM will leave eventually!
Know that you are not alone. emoticon

    I can understand what you are feeling. I am having health issues myself and it's not fun at all. I was supposed to register for school this semester but can't find the money and I can't get financial aid. All I am saying is you are not alone! As much as things look like they are not getting better, you will have better days! You just have to take it one day at a time and surround yourself with people who support you and love you!
