  1. GoldeOne, I am so sorry for assuming! The journey to overcoming looks different for everyone. I’m glad you feel comfortable with your therapist; it’s good to have support from her and your family. you’re right in saying they can’t take away the pain. I don’t know what your belief’s are or if you have any, so please don’t take this as me pushing anything on you. That said, I think the only one who can take away the pain is God. I know he did it for me and others I know. I hope that you’re able to see the sun in your life again soon. Life is too valuable to live it in the dark, and there are people out there that need you,believe in you and want to see you succeed J. Keep hanging in there! teedaalee0712
  2. As woman we can often be very difficult on ourselves when it comes to appearance. Whether or not we’d like to admit it I think it means a great deal to us… probably more than we’d like it to. All the while, it doesn’t help that our society puts such emphasis on appearance. I was saddened as I read your post. To think of all the sorrow this has caused you when it’s meant to be something celebrated. Your story reminded me of my own story. I can remember feeling similar things you've mentioned. There is hope for your situation, GoldenOne I’m concerned for you and would encourage you to talk to your therapist about how your feeling. Do you think he or she could help you come up with ways to overcome this? If not, is there another counselor you might be able to speak with? Do you have friends that could help support you when you are feel down? I just want to let you know that you are beautiful today and every day and nothing can change that. teedaalee0712
  3. Wow, I am so sorry you’re going through this. It sounds like you love your mom a lot and want to see her thriving. I can relate to your current struggle feeling distant and needing your mom. I think it’s often over looked but we really do need our moms and when that relationship feels withdrawn there seems to be a void. You mentioned that you are far away from her. Are you able to talk with her frequently? Does she have friends that you might be able to speak with and see if they can visit her more? With all the surgeries has she been able to go through counseling? I hope that you are able to figure some things out to help your mom. Hang in there. teedaalee0712
  4. StrangeWalrus, I’m glad to hear you’re reaching out. Sometimes situations in life take support and encouragement of others to help us pull through. Have you ever spoken to a counselor about your situation? More often than not they can bring great perspective to surrounding circumstances. Hang in there; hope your day is going well. teedaalee0712
  5. Kmeo, I am sorry you are going through all of this. It sounds like you really need people to come along side you right now and offer support and encouragement. I want to say that even with all of this stuff going on in your life right now your life is still so valuable and precious. Does your family know what is going on? Do you have any friends that you’re close with who can be there for you in this time? I have faith and hope you can make it through this difficult time, Kmeo! Hang in there. teedaalee0712
  6. I’m sorry you’ve been dealing with this for so long. I can imagine it’s probably frustrating for you. It sounds like you’re doing what you can to get help. I don’t know where you’re at regarding your faith, but I’ll keep you in my prayers. Hope things get better! teedaalee0712
  7. Making decisions are a difficult thing to do! I hear you on this. I can understand wanting your parents approval. Finding that balance in life is hard. Maybe you could ask your counselor to help you come up with a list of questions to have when you’re making decisions? That way you know the reasoning behind what you're doing. It’s definitely a process so don’t forget to give yourself grace! One day at a time. teedaalee0712
  8. You’ve given me some things to think about! I appreciate your honesty in this post. teedaalee0712
  9. Aww, I’m sorry. I hope that you’re able to get things figured out soon! teedaalee0712
  10. I’m so sorry things have been so difficult in your family. You sound like a beautiful person inside and out. I can tell you really care for you parents. I can also understand why you would be feeling so overwhelmed right now. I’m concerned for you and your situation. I would strongly encourage you to reach out to people around you. Do you have a doctor, pastor, friend, or counselor that you can reach out to? Please do everything you can to save your own life even if you have to check yourself into a hospital for a few days. I know things might seem unbearable right now but I have faith that these feelings will fade in time. Your life is so valuable and precious. I don’t know if you believe in God but I will be praying for you. Hang in there, cbutterflies. teedaalee0712
  11. It sounds you have gone through a lot in your life. I’m sorry things have been so difficult for you. I’d agree with your therapist in saying you’re smart. I don’t know anyone who graduates with their bachelors in Information Technology without being smart! Fear is a hard boat to turn around…but it can be done! Maybe you could ask your therapist if there are things you can do to help you conquer those fears. You mentioned that you are always alone. Do you have friends that you can go out with? Maybe you could go out and do something you enjoyed doing when you were younger? If you can’t think of an activity maybe you pick something new to try? Just my thoughts, I have hope that you can make it through this difficult time! teedaalee0712
  12. Welcome! Thanks for sharing your story with us. I’m sorry that you’ve been battling depression for so long. You’re not alone in this battle! Hang in there. teedaalee0712
  13. Yes, I agree that some of the things you mentioned are very normal things all girls do ;). On a side note, I hope that you’re able to figure out what’s going on! teedaalee0712
  14. I’m sorry momma; I can see why you would be concerned about your son’s situation. It sounds like you care about your son very much and have done a lot to help him. Since he seems to be having a hard time opening up to you have you considered asking him if there is someone he can talk to about his feelings? If he suggests someone maybe you could set up an appointment with that person on his behalf? Also, would you consider seeing a counselor? Maybe you could get some tools to help your son as well as have support for yourself? I think it’s important to have that support system in place. Hang in there. It sounds like you’re doing a good job! teedaalee0712
  15. Aww, I’m so sorry that you’re going through such a difficult time. I can understand the feeling of wanting to be nurtured, cared for, and heard . Is there any way you can take some time for yourself? Sometimes we can get so caught up in taking care of others that we fail to take care of ourselves. Doing something you love to do or being around other people can often times be refreshing. I hope that you are able to get some rest soon. Hang in there. teedaalee0712
