    I agree what a story I'll have to tell one day about my journey. Truthfully it's a miracle I've made it this far. It's been a 40 year ride on a crazy train that should have crashed for good a long time ago. I'm not sure there ever was a destination or a point or reason for anything I have done. I've just done the best I could with the impossible circumstances that have always existed in my life.

    Thank you. Wow. What a beautiful post. I live for those little lights...yes, cats and my daughter, plus my collection of books (I'm on a first name basis with the staff at Half Price Books ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Walking in the snow is also a treat for me...though I haven't had much time to do it recently. I really appreciate this message, WOTL. Thank you again.

    Hello, extremely nervious and new ~

    Hello, To start off I'm not very good at introductions or even making good conversations with others, so I apologize in advance. I'm thirty one ( 31 ) years old and my name you may call me is just my username, my real name is private for now. I'm new here and wanted to join Depression Forums to try and branch out a bit out of my comfort zone and try and socialize with others. So I may try and get used to being around others once more and feel not so afraid of people. I have a extremely traumatic past with people online as well in person so you can say I don't trust or feel too comfortable around others very well. I however still like to try and interact with others it's just extremely hard for me to feel 100% safe and comfortable around anyone online or in person. I got severely hurt over the years with people so I'm at the point if I never have any relations with people such as a friend or perhaps more possibly. I'm 1000% alright with that as well accept it. It may sound extremely harsh and bad though if you've been through what I have you maybe understand why I feel like that and would consider it even. Also I'm a gal who isn't afraid to speak her mind and I keep it 100% real with you. I don't sugar coat things just to let you all know. My personality is I'm a very kind, caring, loving, respectful, polite, optimistic/ positive / funny ( tries to be ) women. I have severe Social Anxiety, GAD, Bipolar, Chronic Nightmares and Insomnia. I take medication for all what I have and I'm also starting up therapy once more soon. Which I have a EXTREMELY strong feeling will help me get me in a VERY good place once again in my life. I'm not sure what else to say about myself so I'll keep it as that. I appreciate anyone taking the time to read my little introduction about myself. Perhaps see you all around the fourm, please take care.

    Preach! ๐Ÿ™ I am a raving purist about only one thing: pizza. There is a holy trinity of pizza and it is crust, sauce and mozzarella cheese. If any or all of these are terrible, then toppings just cover up the shame. Shame! Bad pizza is a worldwide problem. In my travels I have come to understand that pizza eaters will accept lousy product when there isn't a fine example of it where they live - and I pity them. I'm calling for pizza missionaries. We must deploy good pizza to these people immediately as a matter of principle and compassion. And in my own land, where we create pizza abominations I shall not name here? We must install window shades, for children should not have to be exposed to depravity known as California Pizza. Ok I'm done ranting about pizza. For a day. Maybe two, I haven't decided yet!

    I pulled down trees. The one almost hit a building and it would have if it didn't hit another tree in the way. That's the excitement of it. People that don't really know what they're doing taking the risk of cutting down trees because they're too cheap to pay professionals. It's a rush though.

    That's called being a good parent. I still help out my adult daughter quite often. I think people who throw labels around are trying to project or justify their own shortcomings or whatever. Maybe that sounds harsh, but it often seems to be the case.

    Well mom getting sick and ending up in the hospital started everything for the most part. When they were putting mom into the ambulance she said to call them. Honestly I was surprised any of them showed up. Her getting sick and passing away was what got me in contact with them. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I know how hard it is to lose the people we love. I think it would be a good idea to call them. Over my life I've changed a lot and I've had a lot of people I love pass away and as you said you never know how long anyone has. I know how hard it will be but I wish the best for you.โ™ฅ๏ธ

    What Did You Do Today? #3

    I was given the results of my constructive story test. The lady concluded that the traits I most admire in my role models are intelligence, strength, sociability, popularity, independence, admirability, and out of the box believing and thinking. These are for the most part things everyone finds admirable, though... She says, based partly on what two of my favorite TV shows are (Three's Company, Mary Tyler Moore Show) that I prefer environments with a small work-force of cooperative and supportive people, with a sense of community. I thought this was pretty insightful and accurate. Maybe this also explains why I don't care much for ensemble films. Regarding my 'current vocational state', there are themes of guilt, resentment in status and depression. I think this is fairly accurate. I don't think I've felt much guilt over anything. I don't at all feel that I'm entitled to a higher social status, but I've dealt with lifelong shame and feelings of inadequacy over not being 'accomplished'. She was basing this off two of my favorite books being The Winter Of Our Discontent and Madame Bovary. My earliest memories 'exposed themes of loss and anxiety'. One of the earliest memories I told her about was being too shy to attend my grandmother's funeral when I was in preschool. The conclusion she reached was that I relate most to 'artistic and social themes'. Here there is a major issue because most of the careers she suggested were in education or in social work/counseling/psychology. This is the kind of work I would most want to avoid on account of my social anxiety.

    same. Except for some reason, my school didn't require us to shower. I think only two girls ever used them and it was maybe just one time. weird! I was always worried about going to high school for that reason, but I guess I lucked out! ๐Ÿ˜› Um, does typing count as exercise? I havent been able to exercise for the past two days from being under the weather. Maybe tomorrow I'll be able again.

I can button up my trench coat without looking like the Hulk (Sure I can't raise my arms, but who really needs free range of movement? ๐Ÿ˜‚) And I'm finding more and more things to put into "too big" pile.

    Letting go of the Hurt

    Hello TGO, Welcome to DF. Glad you are here. Sorry you have to be here. We cannot change the past. And we cannot change others. We can only control how we react and what we do now. Sounds like you are still traumatized by past events. I have not found that ignoring them just makes them go away. Sometimes, we need to talk thru the events, get other people's reactions. We could be making a mountain out of a mole hill. Or, we can make a mole hill out of a mountain. Neither help us recover. Sometimes, we need a professional to talk it thru. Sometimes, peer discussion like this is enough. Do you have a professional therapist? It can be hard to work thru the process of sharing the pain, reliving the memories. But it seems we humans need feedback from others to process these and start the road to recovery. Otherwise, we let the past continue to dominate our present. And if nothing ever changes, it will drown our future. Just some thoughts on trying to move forward. Hope they give you something to think about.

    @sober4life Thanks so much. I'm so glad you were able to work things out with some of them. Can I ask how you approached them after so long? I found the numbers of my mother and brother and put them in my phone. But I haven't been able to make myself call. I'm thinking tomorrow when I've recovered a little from the shock. I'm not in a strong place right now, and I'm afraid of one brother, in particular, making things difficult for me. But I do have the strong sense that I need to contact them -- it's the anniversary of my older brother's death tomorrow.

    JD -- I'm so sorry your days are so . . . dark, and that you are trapped in this life. Were it not for your character--which is truly honorable--you would have called it quits a long time ago. But you soldier on for your daughter and responsibilities to your ex-wife. I respect you and your choices (and I'd respect it, too, if you decided to take the leap out of this world) and hope that you will find some hope somewhere; something beyond your responsibilities to get you out of bed. I believe there are little lights here and there in everyone's life, however low or long they burn. Your cats, your daughter, maybe a walk in the snow . . . ? Anyway, just wanted to say you have my empathy and hope for you to find a little light . . . somewhere. WOTL

    Oh yes... this version of Sabrina is way more intriguing and I think Kiernan Shipka is an excellent choice to play Sabrina. I loved her as Sally in Mad Men. No I don't think Salem will talk in this Sabrina. I haven't read this version of the comic book either so I don't even know if Salem talks there either... but to be fair.. the Salem of the 90's sitcom was a guy who tried to take over the world and then was sentenced by the Witches Council to be a cat for 100 years.. A witches' familiar is like a spirit guide, often in the body of an animal who helps them.. so the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is being more truer to what a familiar is.. I think

    I am so happy to be alive. But each morning when I wake up I feel the most awful hopelessness, like when I was hospitalized for depression. Every single thing seems dark, sickly, awful, meaningless and utterly hopeless. And yet this feeling only lasts about 5 minutes. Ten minutes tops. I don't know why I feel that absolute inconsolable darkness nor why it lifts and I then feel so happy to be alive, so lucky and so blessed. From absolute nauseating darkness to seeing the brilliance of colors, the beautiful chirping of little sparrows, the desire to meet the day and try to be helpful to somebody or some little creature I meet. Getting excited about an upcoming train trip as though I was a boy on Christmas Eve waiting impatiently for the new day. These two moods. So bizarre. Once my life was the opposite and who knows if that will return. I still remember with vividness the total sickly darkness of everything when I was hospitalized. I remember the long fall into the darkness when the moments of light that punctured the darkness grew fewer and fewer and lasted less and less. I wake each day totally depressed and then everything is okay. Nothing changes externally in my life and yet so different are the "moods" I experience. Everything is so mysterious.
