😔

There’s a book I recall from my childhood called Don’t Be Saddish Have A Raddish. I wish it were that easy. I’m absolutely wishing I’d cry but my meds don’t let me. I know people complain about crying but when you are totally overwhelmed and can’t release it through crying well you can write about it at least. I’ve been working very hard today. I got my important stuff done...there’s always tons more that can be done but I find myself laying sighing and crying only on the inside.

I feel much better that before I went on Paxil. So sad. Seriously. This is considered a good day compared. Sooo my better days are consisting of me being sad and pissed off with mood swings hmmmm I was living in hell before now I’m in purgatory.

Taking the rest of the day off! 😡

What you dont realize is you are not in purgatory. You accomplished a lot today. That's not stagnant. That's awesome! I know the feeling of not being able to cry and u cant bc of medicine. One day you will when u r ready.

I think nowawadays we want instant gratification, we want it now, we want to get better today. In reality, it takes time & sometimes it's depressing. I get it. It's also part of the process. Keep your chin up. The work you are doing on yourself will pay off.

Thank u for sharing.

Love you forever, my BFF. I will always be right around the corner. Would it help if I emailed you some poems to read? I can use photo copies of them so the format will be correct. I can look up your email on my pm or you can pm it to me again. That way, I can just direct sedn you peoms when they are finished. Okay? Maybe it would help you feel more connected to someone.....

This is to help you. You do not have to edit them or anything. Just enjoy them. I have about half a dozen really good ones I've finished over the last week+. Some are kind of sad though. Is that okay?

Of course

Hey, good advice is good advice! Starrlight has been my BFF for more than 3 months. I love looking out for her. But, you and I can be friends too if you wish. I also have a writing group and several talk only forum groups that you can join if you want.These groups are small only 6 to 10 members. None of my friends ever need be lonely if I can help it!

My writing group has an opening and I'm launching a new talk only group tonight. Do you want both? The writing group meets M-W-F from 7 to 9pm American EST. What say you?

My friend, I need you to join the ADAA site. That is where my chat groups reside. Do the same thing you did when you joined the Living With Anaxiety group. I have reserved spot #10 for you. Once you join, you will have me and 8 new friends as soon as I hook you up to Circle Of friends #2! Have a blessed day, my friend!

I thought about it & Im sorry but I cant commit to M-F 7-9pm. If it were an hour a week, then yes, but 6 hours a week I cant do. Too much of a time commitment.

Just have him add you to the thread where we just chat..it's fun really..I wouldn't lie to you, very light and positive for the most part. Love, peace, light, joy & hugs!

S, I signed you to the talk only format group. I always wait to see if people actually can make the writing group's schedule before I sign them up for that. The chat only group is for general conversation only. You can come and go as you please. It's open 24/7 at your discretion. But, you still have to join the ADAA site for me to activate you as member #10. The others already want to meet you, so I hope you'll actually join. Remember there is 0 commitment, using it is completely at your discretion. Okay?
