Thanks so much for asking :D Things are better today. My daughter had her sleep study last night and they were able to get almost 7 hours of data on her sleep patterns. That's great news because I was so afraid she wouldn't be able to get to sleep and stay asleep since that is often the case. It's also a good sign that they didn't have to put a Cpap mask on her during the night - I'm taking that as a sign that she doesn't have sleep apnea. We should know the results in 7 to 10 days. Her mood is also better and she's not depressed like she was on Sunday. emoticon

I'm doing much better, too. I made it through the 3rd day of the challenge with great support from fellow Sparkers, like you - I really appreciate all the support! I did have some chocolate the day after, but I didn't go over-board. I ate regular meals and had some Dove chocolates for dessert. It's a good thing common sense prevailed since chocolate for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks would have made me so sick!! LOL!!

Thanks again for your support and concern. emoticon

Glad the jumping jacks helped...Do you think it's the endorphins (good feeling hormones) that exercise helps to release? Maybe...We are standing with you..if that helps emoticon

No, no good friends I can call. My daughter does have a psychiatrist, but he's pretty useless except for writing prescriptions. She has disability counselors at college, but she's not there now. I have prayed and I'm counting on God to see us through my daughter's illness (still undiagnosed) which made her have to drop out of college this semester. She's just very depressed about it all today and said that she wishes that when people get to an age where they know what life is about and how their life is going to be, that they would have the option of killing themselves. I guess she thinks this "chronic fatigue syndrome" or whatever she has, along with her depression, OCD, GAD, Ollier's Disease, auditory processing disorder, acute and chronic constipation and scoliosis are just too much to have to live with all the time.

She has a sleep study scheduled for Monday night - her doctor wants to check her for sleep problems and if nothing is wrong, then start treating her for chronic fatigue. My daughter has already signed up for Spring semester classes starting in January, and the college wants the payment by December 1st. We won't even know by then if she's going to be well enough to go back in January. We already lost $8,000 when she dropped out this semester. Don't want to pay another $8,000 and lose that, too. It's my daughter's college money, so it's not coming out of my husband's paycheck, but my daughter was hoping to save some money for graduate school.

Thanks for caring enough to reply - I really, really appreciate it!

Miller

PS - Update since I posted this - She was too tired and depressed to walk, so I suggested she do some jumping jacks - she did 30 and got out of breath, but her mood lightened up. (I guess I should take my own advice and do some jumping jacks!) Also, she's looking at funny things on the computer to make herself feel better. I can survive without the chocolate now that she feels better. Thanks again. emoticon

That is one tough situation! I agree ClassyLadyMay that I won't have anything to say that will miraculously make it all ok for you, but chocolate definitely won't either unfortunately. If it did, my life would be great!!

I can only pray for peace for you and hope that you get help from some where. Do you have any professionals that you can talk to?

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you can’t. It’s a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

I'm going to eat chocolate all day tomorrow - for every meal. I can't have any today because I made a promise to give it up for 3 days. My daughter is talking about suicide today - how am I supposed to deal with that without chocolate - I feel like I'm going to go absolutely stark-raving mad!!!!!!!! How the h@ll am I supposed to deal with my mental disorders and hers and my mother with dementia and half my family not speaking to each other WITHOUT CHOCOLATE?????
