Default Re: Not sure I'm going to make it

Well, I am tired. It was a busy weekend. (good). I have something I have been thinking about how to handle. I will get back to it later. I am going to rest for awhile and veg in front of the TV. I did walk this morning, not as far because it is hot and I was later getting out. Thanks for checking in.

Sorry, it has taken me so long to answer. I am doing well overall. Counseling is spiritually and emotionally hard but I feel I am making progress. This week we are dealing with the hurricane Irma. I am in South Carolina. We are getting a lot more traffic in town and people stocking up to prepare for the storm. I work Fri-Sun, so I will be home Monday when it is projected to hit here. I feel safe and ready. My mother, aunt and uncle are in Tampa Fl and not leaving their homes. I am praying for them. Thanks for checking, hope you are not in the path of the storm. take care

Thank you so much for letting us know, it is great to know that you are doing well! I will be praying for you and your family and all in harm's way. It was very kind of you to inquire about me; I am in New Jersey. Hang in there!

We all made it safely thru the storm. My mom, aunt and uncle had minor power outage but it is back on for all of them. I had minor power outage in my area and a minor roof leak over the tub in bathroom-so thankful for where the leak was. Landlord was out yesterday to set up getting roof leak fixed this week. I'm blessed.

The psychiatrist at the ER said I was high functioning and it would be hard but I needed to stop Xanax and just get through until my appointment next Thursday with a day treatment program. How can these professionals decide they aren't going to help me? My counselor has told me many times if I feel suicidal go to the ER. Now, I don't know what to do? I have sat at home alone, my friends said call if I need them but they don't answer or it's hours later and they send a text asking what's up? I'm now understanding why so many people give up.
Sadly most ppl do not understand depression or simply dismiss it, I do commend you on going to get help even though it was not what you hoped for

No, minor water leak in bathroom, and other than steady rain and some winds at times I am great. Some other places here in South Carolina did get power out, traffic lights are out and some roads detoured but overall we are well here. Some of the coast is still on mandatory evacuation. I am thankful.
