I am new to the team and to SP... but here goes.

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.

Today, I struggled with pain and absolutely NO motivation (lack of interest) toward exercise or eating right!

I beat myself up, so to speak, over my dirty house and my weight and my lack of writing (I call myself a writer); but, then I don't do anything about these problems!

How do you turn over the lack of interest? How do you deal with running errands and care-taking and other "busyness" and still have motivation to move toward your own goals?

I do have some aid but it's still not enough, the aid I get just covers the medical costs. But I still have to eat, drink etc. and that costs money too.

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!

emoticon to you both ladies! Have a wonderful evening!

I'm struggling with my meds too! Not because they don't work for me but because of how much they cost!

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.

~Nancy~

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.

Soon, soon, soon............................

Is there a support group in your area where you could talk to someone IRL? In my experience, stress triggers mania and or depression and this to me sounds like a huge mountain of it on your shoulders.

Are there any type of jobs you could do from home? I hope you find some peace and support with this sweetie, tomorrow is a new day!

I wish there was a simple solution to my problem but there isn't.

I'm a dialysis patient and that has made it virtually impossible for me to get a job. Most ppl don't want to employ me as I can't work full-time like a normal person.

I'm really worried about my future. Atm, I'm living with my parents but they are getting old and I'm worry about the time when I have to look after them.........

For me today, it is a combination of exhaustion and a lack of motivation.

What is keeping you from doing your best today? Pain, busyness, lack of interest? Share with us as we work together.
