Just thought you should know

It gets better. I know you probably hear this a lot and you might not have that much hope in these words but they’re true. Some of us go through more bad days then we go through good ones and some days gets so bad you go to that dark place where there’s no way out it’s just you and your depression and it won’t let you reach out and ask for help, everything is just too much, the pain the unworthiness the fear, I’ve been there I have the scars on my wrists and thighs to prove it and I also have proof of the good days when I go to the store like a regular person after being chained in my house by agoraphobia for so long, I buy watermelons and chocolates and two big jars of Nutella that was on sale, and buy even more chocolates cause you can never have enough chocolate. I did that. If you’re reading this just know it does get better hang strong on the bad days and enjoy the good ones go outside eat your favorite food watch a funny movie, smile, I may not know you personally but I’m with you, and I’m sending you warm hugs.

Aww....thank you. I'm really feeling down on this gloomy, sprinkly Monday. I miss the beautiful, cool fall weather in Cincinnati...I miss the pretty leaves, how they float through the air / I miss the chilly weather, wish I was there / It's a time for hot chocolate and football too / It's a time to enjoy friends, especially ones like you!

Nutella........manna from God!

I hear you! When there’s a world with chocolate and dogs and cheese and Nutella and sunflowers and caramel coated popcorn there’s always a better day coming.

I paint things I’m thankful for on my bedroom wall. It’s crazy. Hubs doesn’t say a word. ☺️. I like new T-shirts too and fresh sheets. This is what I focus on while I lie in bed and my brain commits treason and lies to me.

I love this post. Thank you for sharing💛

Hi Baby Girl x Great picture :)

Today's a good day. Boxes of Trick or Treat

Chocolates have arrived. I am not opening

them for fear of temptation :)

I've been decorating outside. Fall is in the air in

Chicago. The leaves are changing colors and look

so beautiful flying in the air. As I was driving today,

I felt a peace and happiness come over me "just because".

It happens to us Danielle. Embrace the good feelings when

they happen. Nice to see you here. Hugs Agora, :) xx

Well, every time I see a response from you, I smile! Fall is in the air and it was my favorite time in southwest Ohio. Out here in Florida it seems a bit lost on me....I feel a bit lost too sometimes....

But if you're somewhere where the beautiful leaves are changing color and blowing around in the crisp, fall air, enjoy it for me too!

In Virginia we’re having a dry spell. Our leaves are coming down fast. If you close your eyes in the woods it almost sounds like a trickling stream but it’s the leaves. Even Rosie the Bulldog holds still and listens.

OMG I’m messy weeping all over myself reading this, and all the responses ❤️ I think I’m home...

I lost my home last November in a major fire. My entire IRL community, my routines. I’m now living a nomadic life in an RV. Thought I was dealing pretty well. Ahem. I’m just now realizing how thoroughly messed up I am: cannot sleep, emotional reactive, and apparently panic attacks (thought it was my heart/pacemaker - not.) I’m scared and confused.

Thank you - please be patient as I don’t always have reception, as I didn’t last night. Now camping at one of my favorite soothing spots, a hot springs ❤️ I can feel the calmness beginning to melt all that tension in every part of me. A friend will be camping next to me soon, another nomad. I’m hoping we can travel south together 💞

Thank you all so very much for painting such truly beautiful pictures with your wonderful words of Autumn. I have been thinking recently how sad l was that summer was over, lack of a warm sun, darkness approaching sooner. Not a good time for me always BUT reading your messages I am feeling your warmth and happiness. Thank you all. God bless you.

Thanks for your support, alot of my problem is my adult daughter who is learning disabled, she had dyslexia. I'm so stressed that I can't get through to her. She won't do more for herself, most of my savings is gone living with her. She get defensive when I've tried to talk with her. I'm going to be 65 and I'll. I have Diabetes and don't know when but was told I'd be going blind, Macular Degeneration. The stress I'm going through is affecting my Diabetes.

I also have diabetes and am 69 so we have that in common. I am retired and don’t have a lot of friends so I volunteer 2 afternoons at a hospital. I suffer from depression and lately am down. My motivation to keep house is nil! I have a husband that puts up with my ups and downs. He tries to understand me but he gets frustrated when I don’t want to cook and clean!

Want2BHappy3

The same when it comes to house keeping. It drives my youngest daughter Crazy. She won't Help cause she says she didn't create the mess. I understand that, being depressed it's overwhelming. I try to explain that I need help, her come back is....it will go back to the way it was? Believe me I've helped her many times

Reply
Callmedanielle

Do she have any siblings close family members that might talk to her, what about you do you have any other kind of support dealing with this alone is taking a toll on you and you need to take care of yourself too. I know she’s your daughter but your well being matters too

Reply
Want2BHappy3

She does, but because they don't understand her disability and she doesn't look disabled. (It's Mental) Their in denial and get mad at me??? This is inherited from her dad. There's no cure

Hi I have a similar situation my daughter was diagnosed I don't like to say it feels like I am claiming illness. But yes it takes a toll emotionally and physically on the whole family. My daughter has a twin brother and he says that I paid so much attention to her needs that I forgot about him. I have to allow her to feel comfortable because most days she can't control her mind although she takes 6 different medications daily. She knows that no matter what she can count on me and then I go and cry alone where neither one can see.

Want2BHappy3

Thanks for sharing, people think they need to see a disability for it to be Real??? I worry what's going to happen to her if even family thinks it's Not Real? She's Not retarded, she has dyslexia and thinks differently. Things don't Click with Her as easily, so they get frustrated with her.

Hi. Thanks for the uplifting message, Danielle. I'm glad you're doing well. Needed to hear that. I'm stuck in the house because my leg is in a cast, and I cannot make it down the steps outside lol.

Nutella...Never had it till last week. And I had it with little breadsticks to dip them with. It's heaven....

I love the way you think! Is that your dog in the picture? He is beautiful ! I don’t have agoraphobia but I’m retired and when I get depressed I am glad to stay home where I can sleep ln and not have to pretend to be happy! I do volunteer at a hospital 2 afternoons a week. Sometimes I enjoy it but when I’m down it is hard! Enjoy that chocolate! I love it too!

Yes that’s my big furry baby spidey , pretending to be happy is really exhausting especially since some people still don’t understand what we’re going through and it’s hard to talk about it, me and spidey go to our local hospital too, it’s nice you have something to do that you enjoy, what about the rest of the week I find that staying home makes it worse
