  1. What's On Your Mind Right Now?

    Politics in the U.S. And it's good news for a change. No xanax needed tonight...
  2. I lost a job today

    I'm glad you're reaching out to people. Hope you're eligible for unemployment--that can help tide you over until you get something new. Keep us updated!

    Thank you! Your words helped me immensely.
  4. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    My husband came home from his business trip. I brought him to the airport on Thursday and brought him home last night. That felt good. Some separations are horrible, like last December's--because he'd been traveling off and on for his brother's stuff and I had too much empty time and filled it with memories of MyOldFlame. This time, it was like MOF peeked in, saw I was busy and left promptly!! It helped so much to have too much stuff at work going on. And I didn't have much to do with helping my son sort through his stuff the way I did this past August. That makes me feel especially lonely, when I'm the only parent around. Didn't exercise nearly enough over the past few days, ate more carbs and sweets than I should and I'll do better. It's not the end of the world. This is a difficult time of year. The cold, the early dark always make me feel exhausted and lacking in resources. But visiting here is more than helpful, especially the Lighter Side and other Water Cooler forums. I get to see my therapist this week and life will go on. love and hugs to everyone here. May there be light in the darkness for all of us!

    This makes me do the happy dance @sober4life!!
  6. Questions!

    Playing a city-building game (Nile Online) online. What superpower would you want to have?

    I really miss my cat today.
  8. I took a shower before work, although I did not wash my hair. And after work, I walked around the track for half an hour.
  9. Depression, my best friend

    Welcome to the Depression Forum. This is a good place to vent and chat. You'll find we're all different kinds of people, but for the most part we're sympathetic and kind. Lots of us have gone through what you are going through. Families often are blind, they don't want to upset the status quo. (I'm remembering a breakdown I had in a car 4 1/2 years ago. I don't think my husband or son thought anything was wrong with me). So, welcome again! I hope you stay--there are some fun parts of the DF where we play games, etc.

    I'm mildly headachy and wish I could stay home, but I've got to work. So yeah, I feel a little on the cruddy side today. Took generic excedrin and that has helped some. Still...
  11. Early Birds

    6:30am, unless my body wakes me up earlier and I can't fall back asleep. On weekends, no alarm, but I wake up between 7 and 8am, very rarely later than that. Oh yeah, when I have to be at work at 5:15am, I'm up at 4:14 to get some writing in & my coffee made, etc. It only takes me 3 minutes to get to work by car, but I feel like I need all the time in the world! When I have to set my alarm, I set it for a multiple of 9 (I'm a little ocd about this)

    @CoolCat7 Happy Belated Birthday...keep celebrating, you brave and creative woman, you!!!
  13. Random Thoughts 2

    I'm trying. I'm trying.
  14. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Listened to "Black Cloud" by Choo Choo La Rouge. I first heard it somewhere in the background on the U.S. version of "Shameless." It describes my brain sometimes. The song, that is. Not the word "shameless." Now my husband is practicing guitar and that's what I'm sort of listening to.

    @CoolCat7 & @JD4010 & @babyxgothxx wish I had a turd vacuum to vacuum up all the turds and ship them elsewhere. I am reeling from the political crap and feeling very anxious and gloomy about the future. I include removal of those turds in the proposed turd-vacuuming project. All the turds.
