Be well, friend. It sounds like you are in incredible pain but still putting one foot in front of the other. That takes so much strength and courage. To me, so much of this comes down to brain chemistry and the negative self talk we do when we don't feel well. I can see your frustration and fatigue. And you are making yourself go and do things! How fantastic.
It sounds like your friends really care about you. Friends also know us really well. Hospitalization definitely keeps you safe but it also gives you the opportunity to be re-evaluated medically and maybe get you closer medications that work better for you. You can feel better and you are trying so hard. Sometimes I have to reevaluate my doctors to make sure I am getting the best care possible. Bless you.View Thread
Hi Anon, it sounds like you have been through so much for such a long time. What incredible survival skills you have! Which tells me you have the strength to get away from your husband. The cycle of domestic violence is just awful but I know you can break it. Right now, the most important thing is your physical safety. You deserve to feel safe and to be able to take care of yourself.
