  1. I feel stuck... he treats me like crap.. my self confidence is in the negative.. he constantly belittles me and makes me want to die... I don't know what happened, he use to not be like this. i don't feel loved.. i find myself feeling so lonely and abandoned.
  2. Tyvm abandoned and nice to see you, I hope and pray for all of us here suffering we can find that peace.
  3. ...and more depressed than ever! It's been about 2 years I think since I've been on this forum. Hoping to see some familiar faces and new ones. I've missed these boards, although I can't say I'm happy to be depressed again.. it's a bitter sweet reunion I guess.
  4. Devastating F4 tornado hit about 30 miles from me day after Christmas and two days after it snowed in the morning for an hour... This weather is really crazy...
  5. Can I hug all of the people above me? (((((((((((( gigantic hugs to allllllllll))))))))))))
  6. First of all relationship problems can be the cause of a depression, so the person who made that comment is ignorant. Second, I'm so sorry about your situation and I can defintely sympathize with you. I know it's a cliche saying but time really does heal the heart. It will be very hard in the beginning but eventually it will get better. Let it out, don't hold it in.. Talk to people about it... Friends, family, whoever will listen that you're comfortable with. I think the best advice here is your own ..not talking to her.. The more you talk to her, the longer it will take to move on. I wish you well and hope you're able to find solace.
  7. That's just disgusting and conniving. Was there anything you could do about that? That's just immoral.
  8. Aww, what a nice story. I really had to zoom in though to read your font. Not sure if it's just me. Thanks for posting though.
  9. Yes! I use to get them ALL the time when I was half asleep. It seemed like that's when the worst of the worst panic attacks came, so don't worry, you are not alone on that one. It always seemed really strange to me too that they came when I was hardly even conscious.
  10. Sleep for 10 hours straight without waking up
  11. When I worked for GE and booked appointments aswell as tech support they recorded every call. I know they listened to a lot of the calls too because I got into trouble once or twice for not following "protocol".
  12. Christmas is on my mind... Only 2 more days! I can't wait to put out the milk and cookies for Santa, light a fire, and watch old xmas movies with the kids!
  13. I'm grateful for my kids and hubby. I'm grateful to my God who listens to me every night. I'm grateful for teachers who bust their butts everyday and provide knowledge, skills, and structure for my kids.
  14. Frozen- How beautiful and eloquently written. I wish you luck with your new course :) Oh and Happy B-Day! Mines in 5 more days :)
  15. While researching the topic, I came across an article about a retired neurologist who speaks out on the issue regarding ADHD and has written a book about his findings. 'ADHD a fake disorder, neurologist-turned-author says' "Zero: That’s the percent of children suffering from attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, a neurologist said in his new book, “ADHD Does Not Exist: The Truth About Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder.” The book’s due out in February — and controversy is already generating, The New York Post reported. Author Richard Saul said that over the course of his long career, and treatment of patients complaining of problems related to short attention spans and an inability to focus, he’s come to one conclusion: ADHD is only a collection of symptoms, not a disease or disorder in itself. It shouldn’t be listed as a separate disorder in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, he said, The New York Post reported. The number of ADHD diagnoses has increased in recent years simply because doctors are failing to probe deeply enough and question patients about related health matters — and because ADHD has become an embraced, accepted catch-all diagnosis, he said. And more bluntly: Mr. Saul said parents seek an easy way to get their children to sit down and shut up, and the treatments for ADHD — Adderall and Ritalian — do the trick. But those drugs are dangerous and addictive stimulants, and they shouldn’t be prescribed so cavalierly, he said. For instance, one in nine children are now labeled as ADHD, and two thirds of them have been put on a stimulant, The New York Post reported. “ADHD makes a great excuse,” Mr. Saul said, The New York Post reported. “The diagnosis can be an easy-to-reach-for crutch. Moreover, there’s an attractive element to an ADHD diagnosis, especially in adults. It can be exciting to think of oneself as involved in many things at once, rather than stuck in a boring rut.”
  16. She sounds terribly selfish. It also sounds like she takes advantage of you. What if one day you just decided to stop doing everything she tells you to and make her do her part? I don't think it's fair that you carry all the weight while she sits home doing nothing.
