Hi BB. Just saw this, and thought I would add my 2cents. You're not alone - there are many people who wake up - feeling just awful at the fact of having to face another day. As the day progresses, you (in my opinion, and I am not a med professional) probably begin to feel better, because the unknown things you dreaded when you first woke up - have not materialized. In all likelihood, the day has gone much better than you anticipated.
I have experienced this phenomenon myself, and the above is pretty much the conclusion I came to about my own problems.
By afternoon you may had some interactions with others around you, and that can be a boon, and help you feel like you are cared about.
I hope my ramblings help somewhat. Take care, and know that if you are thinking (as I so often do) that no one cares, just remember, they really do. They may not realize just how important it is for you to hear it and know it.
Be blessed, and keep "smiling in faith." That, too, may help you feel better.View Thread
Yes, I admit to being a tv addict ... I use it to keep my mind quiet, to keep me from thinking about my (lack of) self-worth and esteem. I also use it to drown out noises at night, and have slept with the tv on all night for years. Since I lost my job in September, and job-hunting has been extremely frustrating, I use tv to keep from thinking. I am getting ready to begin training at my city's zoo, so hope that will help get me out of the tv habit.
I wish everyone with this particular problem the very best in finding other avenues to help them deal with what is going on in their lives that tv has become a tool to cope.
