    Instead of making an entirely new entry, I'm just sneaking in here!  I am inspired by Duck's gratitude journal and want to post a bit of what I am grateful for here:
    waking up in a comfortable place
    remembering it is my stepdaughter's birthday and sending her birthday wishes
    having great memories of my stepdaughter's birthday parties when she was little
    having a job to go to
    having a husband who is so good to me
    having a place like df to come to
    having a really good and kind t

    I think you're being a bit rough on yourself. 
    I don't know your  ambitions, but why not keep them.  Some people haven't a clue what they want.
    Could Toby McGuire  represent strength?  A character instead of the actor.  Isn't he a super hero?
    You often dream of actors, are you interested  in an entertainment related career?   You're in Science, right? 
    Lofty and realistic is a balance you can try.  Why not both?  Explore..
    I don't know, just thinking out loud.

    I'm so sorry Nataya, I wish there was something I could do for you.  You have to keep fighting, I know it's hard but it's all any of us can do and hopefully one day it may get easier.  Sending love and (((((hugs))))) to you.

    Hi Nataya! I've been on the site for several years now, and the blogs used to be much more interactive than they are now. I'm glad you spoke up. Aren't we all here for support and perspective? I know I am. :)

    Same here Nataya.  I don't write blogs for the same reason, I don't think people will be interested in what I say.  ((hugs)).  I'm glad you're still with us, you had me worried for a while there that you were planning to do something silly.

    That's what I have heard that it has a high success rate. It last for a whole year so I hope it works well with me. It's going to be hard work but I am willing to give it a shot. But this is my last time so if this doesn't work I will give up.

    A lot of people find DBT very helpful, I hope it is so for you!  It sounds like you're gonna get a very thorough teaching with lots of support.  That's great!

    read what you said about shame and the invisible illness.
    appreciate your honesty.
    i have been thinking about that today after i left my therapist.
    i am not sure what i would say to you exceptt i think it is probably quite true that neither of us ought to feel that way - the concept of shame while living in the invisible illness.
    for me i have to work hard to be kind to myself.
    i don't think you are pathetic either.

    I can understand you are feeling hopeless, but it's apparent you are doing everything to fight, and that's the right attitude. You have a lot of strength in you, and you are supported by excellent professionals, that's a great recipe to go through major obstacles.

    I think you should be honest with your team. You haven't done anything illegal, and even if you were to get hospitalized for a while, it may help you a lot. I know you have your three cats to consider, maybe try to find a good reliable pet sitter before you go totally honest. I'm sorry things are so hard.

    sometimes people make things more difficult.
    sorry for where you are right now.
    putting the pieces back is something done one at a time - maybe that is a strategy as well as a picture created.
    hope better things ahead.

    Having to steer a course with your team uses up a lot of energy. I fully understand the need to be 'economical' with what you do and do not say to them. Perhaps confide in a friend about how this is all making you feel.
    Then, there is the alternative. Tell them everything. That's what they want, but I can see that it can open Pandora's box.
