Hopeless sometimes

Hi there I lost my mom who was 68 in February this year from copd and emphysema and the hospital I feel made her suffer. I also have a handicap son who is 24 and has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. I give up everything I can think of so he can do what he likes and so he has no worries. However he loves to stay up late like me and we have our sleep schedule is very sporadic and I have a lot of stuff to take care of but I'm just hopeless sometimes and I cry every day these days thank you for listening. It feels good just to write this

Hugs to you and I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. My condolences go out to you. She was at the best place she could have been in her final moments, so dont beat yourself up. You made the best choice you could have due to her condition.

My anxiety and panic disorders came from a friends passing suddenly from a heart attack when working out. I also have a son who has special needs related to a rare genetic disorder. I have been on anti depressants for 8 years and just recently switched back to my old medication. I am starting to feel somewhat better with the new medication since it's been about 3 weeks. Things will get better but you definitely deserve me time to decompress. Don't feel guilty for taking time for yourself because you deserve solace and inner peace. If you ever need to chat, just message me. Good luck to you.



You're going to get through this at your own pace but you are going to get through this. This moment of hopelessness will pass and you will feel better. I can literally give this promise to you in writing!
