Oh Sue, I am so sorry you are feeling so terrible today. You really need to eat something and go to sleep for a little bit. Is your husband upset with you because you are laying on the couch all day or something else? I know its hard when they are mad at you because mine hates it when I lay around and do nothing.
I am sorry I am not much help to make you feel better but know we all care about you and are here for you!
That sounds like a wonderful way to end the day. No matter how low we feel about ourselves we have to look and remember that those little ones need us. I look at my three young kids and think how can I feel so crappy when I have them in my life. Wish it would all go away for them.View Thread
Hello everyone, Thank you for your positive reinforcements! The day overall went well. He took a half a day and we had a nice family afternoon. Then we had a cook out at my mom's house with the pool and all the family was there and he had a great birthday. He thanked me several times for making it such a good one. As long as he was happy that's all that matters.
Now I have to get us ready for our family vacation. We leave Saturday for our week stay at the cabin. I haven't even started packing yet for the 5 of us and 2 dogs. Talk about stressful!! Not sure how I am going to pull it off feel as crappy as I do at the moment.
CMH~ good luck with your girls days/or did you have it already? Its always nice to get away even if its just for a few hours and it sounds like you need the get away.
I just wanted to say I am so sorry you are feeling so low right now. I know nothing I can say can make you feel any better and I know how frustrating it is when people tell you to think of the positives. Like we don't know that already, Like we choose to always think of the negative. Please keep checking in with the counselor and the crisis help lines. And please let us know how are you are doing later today.
BEHapppy, I felt like I wrote that myself. I know exactly how you feel. I am sorry you are feeling like your therapist is looking down on you. That is the worse feeling, like AM said maybe you could try someone new if this is something she tends to do a lot. I am glad that you are having a peaceful day. Hopefully your whole day continues to be peaceful.
As for my day, its another non motivated day. I did get up and get the kids ready and when shopping for my husbands birthday tomorrow. I feel so bad I waited to the last day to do it but I got everything I wanted so I guess that is a bonus. Then get home and feel crappy again, looking around the house and seeing what a mess it is and how much work I have to do to get done makes me sick. And here I sit at the computer instead of doing the dishes and cleaning up the kitchen. The simplest tasks are so HARD!!View Thread
Chez, I love the sofa club idea, that's where I am most days. I did manage to shower and now I am trying to get the dishes done and kitchen cleaned up but not moving to fast. Don't think I will get it all done before the hubby gets home. I love the picture you posted, made me smile I am sorry you are having such a rough day. Hopefully we will both have a better day tomorrow!View Thread
niteflier, thank you so much for being there for me. Its makes me feel a little better having others to talk to that know exactly how I am feeling. The DR does know about the meds not being ready yet and her office staff said they will straighten it out. I think that the Lithium is making me more tired than usual. As soon as I take that along with the Seraquel (sp?) I am out for the count and it takes me until 3 or so to get up and going. I did get in the shower finally around 2:30, I guess that's better than not taking one at all, LOL Yes, I have been talking to my husband about this and he is being more than supportive. Without him I would be worse than I am I think.
Thanks for everything and sending hugs back LisView Thread
