Default Need to get up

I'm laying on my stairs right now curled in a ball. I need to at least get to my bed. But I don't know if I can get up to do it. Just sleeping here seems good.

But I know it isn't good.

I don't know what to do when I can't get myself to move.

I don't have any suggestions. Sorry you're in such a dark place right now.

You can only do what you can do at the time. Hopefully, if you lay there for a little while you can get yourself to move up the stairs just a little bit and continue only moving a little at a time until you get to your bed. One step at I time. That is how I get through some days.

I hope you have doctor you can call as soon as possible and let him know how bad you are and let him help you.

Many years ago now, I found myself curled up in the doorway of an abandoned store somewhere downtown. Heard my name being called quietly, and it was my t (?where the heck did he come from) who had spotted me and stopped to talk. He even asked if I needed IP, and accepted my stupid reply (which included no but in a provocative way)---he sat for a while with me, and left. It was so kind. You will get through this. Lots of hugs and lots of time.
