Update (RE: Deployment Depression)
Sunday, September 09, 2007
Thank you to everyone who replied. It's been so great to be able to come to SP and know that someone is here 24/7. I'm doing better since hubby's been able to get online. I'm not just hanging out in limbo anymore. I went on a huge shopping splurge in TX yesterday and online this morning to get stuff we've been needing and just haven't had the time/money to get until now. We're finally getting a kitchen table, I have at least one pair of jeans that fit (yay for Lane Bryant's new sizing system, I'm a size 8! lol), more clothes coming from Old Navy soon, 4 pairs of shoes that all fit well enough that they should help with back and foot pain while still being able to wear the shoes I want with different outfits; lamps, sheets that fit our new bed (we upgraded to a full mattress and box springs from a futon mattress on the floor a few months ago), a comforter that's not black (it's spring green, sky blue, and yellow) so I feel a little more like getting up in the morning, a second alarm clock in case I don't, a toaster oven on sale for 60 down from 130, a portable closet for all of my new clothes, space bags for the old ones and the ones he left here, a watch that has timers for marathon training and a pulse function, and other stuff I can't even remember right now. It's amazing how shopping can make you feel better, too bad we don't have the means for me to do it all of the time! I'm slowly but surely getting myself much, much more organized. Oh, I got 3 huge poster-sized frames so I can make my motivational collage (been putting it off until I had something to protect it from the kitties) and probably another of hubby and I, and another of my siblings, grandma, myself, friends, and my goddaughter. Getting myself together will take a while, but it will also help distract me and give me a goal to work toward (aside from the weight loss, of course).
I still want to see a psychiatrist because I realize that if I try to do everything on my own I'm going to blow up eventually, but maybe I can avoid drugs. I don't like taking things I don't need.
Again, thank you all so much for pointing out to me yet again that SP has saved my life once and can again, and again if I need it.
Edit: I'll be posting pics of my new stuff soon (mainly my shoes and jeans) so keep an eye out!
