400 Miles Away

Remember that the bad times pass...

"The tragedies that now blacken and darken the very air of heaven for us will sink into their places in a scheme so august, so magnificent, so joyful, that we shall laugh for wonder and delight."

Authur Christopher Bacon

Anyone going through the loss process would really benefit from going to the following web site (In addition to Lexapro and Ambien): ?

I'm so sorry - I know how frustrating it is. I'll keep my fingers crossed and think good thoughts for you.

Depression is a sneaky devil, really. I've struggled with depression many times in my life, and so has my youngest son. My mother would never admit it, and gets mad at the doctors when they try to prescribe anti-depressant meds. My b-father? Well, if you'll recall, he shot himself in the head. Soooooooo, I *KNOW* I'm predisposed to depression. I know the signs, but sometimes it just creeps up until one day, you're in full blown depression, wondering where that came from.

I've been off depression meds for about 7 years now, but have also made the mistake of taking myself off my meds too soon in the past. My doctor said that a good rule of thumb is to be on them for the length of time you suffered with clinical depression. I think she was right about that.

So, kiddo, you've made the first step- REALIZING what is going on. You've also started the ball rolling on the second step. This shows just how healthy you really are. You realize that, don't you? The fact that you care enough about yourself to get to the doctor is pretty huge.

And.... for the record, I agree with you. It's TOTALLY OK to admit that you need help. Yup.

xoxoxo (to infinity)

Sweetie, I'm so sorry you're going through such a rough time, and I'm proud of you for taking charge, as you always do so well in life. Please know that I and all your other friends and loved ones -- "real" and "Virtual" are here for you. Great big hug! Looking forward to seeing you next weekend! Seriously, you're my hero! I hope you know that!

And you can always call -- even at 3:30 a.m. Wait, you already know that, don't you? :)

Going through a tough time myself right now, so I'm just gonna give you ((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))). Dontcha love RG? She's a smart lady...but you already know that. :-)

Good for you for realizing it. I don't know why it is so hard for people (including me) to admit they need that kind of help. Happy drugs are for a physical condition--not like taking uppers or something. Not many people are embarassed they have diabetes or asthma. Anyhow, many good thoughts headed you way. (along with a couple of "better late than never" CDs I promised) Hang in there!
