I am a young mom, deal with depression and anxiety, full time job, blended family and a brain that plays tricks on me quite often. I have recently been prescribed medication for anxiety and depression and while my pride fought it at first, I am finally feeling a little better... but I still have bad days.
Today I am struggling with trusting myself. There are days where even the smallest of decisions is such a dang battle its ridiculous.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and i would love to make some strong friends and be a part of supporting a group. Please friend me or message me if interested.
I am not sure that they are doing much to be honest then the cost is a pain also. Last night I was just feeling down, my brain was racing and I decided I am tired of them. I am sure eventually I will snap out of this mood and be ok and again.
Eowyn do you have a medical plan? Without one I can imagine the cost must be very high. I've been reading your blogs, you seem like a very strong young lady! I hope things get easier for you sweetie!
Sue: Why don't you want to take your meds? Are they not working? Or are you just sick and tired of taking them? I've felt that way soooo many times, but I know the consequences all too well. I hope you feel better...you can message me anytime!
Dorothy, Welcome to the team. I am very sorry for the loss of your husband. I can't imagine what you & he went through....so, I don't exactly know what to say. I do know that one day at a time is all any of us can do. Grieving is necessary....Take it slow....work on one area at a time.
If I can be of any help, please let me know.

Hi I am new here, Someone invited me can't remember who.. I lost my hubby Oct 17th. He had cancer for 9 months. I was his caregiver and it was pure HELL!!! The chemo and radation made him sooooo sick.. At the last he developed a brain tumor so he was afraid to drive. Some days I'm ok and other days I cry all day. Thanks for listening friends.
Holy cow! I can see how you would be "all caregived out". Do you have any time to do anything at all for yourself? You seem like such a selfless person, but you should really try to find a little time just for you. You need to nurture yourself as well sweetie...even if it means setting the alarm 15minutes earlier for a quiet cup of tea by yourself. Nuture yourself!

What I am struggling with is STRESS. I have been taking care of my dh for 17 years and my handicapped son 15 years prior to that. I am "all careging out". I want to do something else. I want to go visit someone without worrying about my dh. (He has Alzheimer). I want to be able to go on vacation. Other than visiting family, I have not had a vacation in 17 years. I have had enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will be apply for assisted living residence after Christmas. I could do it now but I thought it best that we spend our last Christmas in our home with our children.
