    Re-purposing old items, reading, Scrabble with my son, and another game enjoyed is poker. My Yorkshire Terrier/Chi mix, Bella who loves to play Frisbee and tug-o-war. I like antique and vintage items because they tell a story of the past and have a charm most things don't possess today.
  1. This a great post, and now the gossiper will be on the outside looking in because she cannot hold this over you anymore. I am so glad to hear your coworkers are standing with you and are supportive. Keeping a job while battling severe depression is far better than OKAY, It is amazing. You are a super strong person with a good heart.

    Accept The Love

    I feel like I am breaking a Cardinal Rule to respond to any blogs on here. Seems like most avoid leaving responses on these posts and if they do read a blog, they just click on the like button. Is it okay to respond, or is there some unwritten rule among members on here that forbids responding? I mean it is not just my blog-but all the blogs. Some have more responses than others, but they are few regular readers who respond to blogs on DF. Perhaps these blogs are just some kind of open journal that people write in but really don't want any responses? The readers don't have the time? They are too depressed? Too self absorbed? A lack of words? Indifference? Afraid? Jealousy? Can someone tell me why? I have never been on a site that was like this. Focusing on others helps us to see beyond our own problems and creates goodwill. What a good friend to find your home and take to you work. Do not worry about the gossiper, everyone knows what she is; it wont be long before she is talking behind their backs too. I've been in the dazed state myself, I did lose my job because of severe depression. It was after the molestation of my daughter, and I was suicidal. I am very happy that you have succeeded in maintaining employment.Work is good therapy. It makes us focus on other things instead of personal issues. I know what is is to lay awake and dwell on all the what-ifs. I know what it is to cry myself to sleep for endless weeks, to worry about what comes next. It is amazing to me we survive such things, but we do. I survived mine because of my faith, but that does not mean it was easy. On the brighter side, your blog has had over 32K views! That is awesome! Now I am back to my original question. that many views with only a few responses, why? If you use tags that could be why so many hits and few responses, still, 32k hits is great! The lady is right, accept the love.

    Why I'm Like This

    I am hoping you are feeling better Thursday! I created a blog on Word Press yesterday and found this image from an artist who creates dolls on the site. When I saw this little lady I thought of your avatar. I hope you like it, she seems so serious and solemn but lovely with her gentle-soulful eyes and delicate features. And..here is a link to her blog. It is a wonderful entry about how she and her students overcome being negative about their art. Seems women have a tendency to apologize for talent. https://thepalerook.wordpress.com/blog-2/

    Haha bee-hind, too cute. I viewed your gallery, are those your paintings? They are quite good. I work part of the night, but usually stay up until daybreak.
  9. Creative and relaxed.

    Good morning Orso! I know it is the afternoon but I work nights so this is my morning ;) You are really a go-getter, congrats on all the positive steps you are taking towards well being. You seem very well balance and love the (porescription) typo, haha.
  11. Haha, I do try hard to suggest activities or solutions, but one shoe does not fit all. You could time yourself when you run and try to better it your next time out. Hiking is a great way to clear your mind, and for meditation. I certainly know how you feel about being around people and enclosed spaces. When my children were growing up I spent years working in production settings. This made me hate being inside because I rarely saw daylight until our week ended. I took a job driving a large box truck for a food vending machine company just to be able to be outside. I love working outside but not in bad weather. I am glad that you are interacting with us in this forum and that it is a outlet for you. People are human, they will let us down; they can become callous and indifferent to our circumstances and respond accordingly. Do you believe in God, pray? Do you have a pet? When out hiking, what is the thing you love about nature/hiking?
  12. Comment on THE NEXT DAY. We cannot change others. People many times are so absorbed in themselves and their lives it leaves no room for anything/anyone else. Do you have hobbies or interests? You like writing, right? Have you checked to see if there is a literary guild or club in your town? Are there classes for a interest you have? There are classes for cooking, art, crafts, quilting, beading, writing and so forth. Most community colleges offer classes for a small fee for such interests. Usually the classes are between one and four or five sessions. Specialty groups have meetings too. Churches often have gatherings just to socialize and have a meal together. Being involved in a creative class to learn or hone a craft does not require us to be proficient and everyone in the class is there for the same reason. Focusing our energy in this way will help to build confidence and to redirect our thoughts to enjoy the process of learning along with others in the class or group.
  13. I know exactly how that feels, I've been there. Suffering anxiety is tough, it made me stay at home for months on end. It is hard to even know what caused me to be that way. Eventually I did step back into life but it took a while. I will share a bit with you about tonight on my job. I work on a fast paced assembly line for a major company. The young lady next to me had extra work piled on her tonight so I took it upon myself to help her. She was getting behind and both of us were working frantically to keep up with the work load. It was so much that we were barely making it. For about five weeks I had been doing part of another workers job to help him as a courtesy. Tonight the load was so heavy that I could not help them both so I opted to help her because if I didn't the line would come to a halt. I knew he could handle taking care of what I had been doing for him. Everyone could see that this young lady and I were struggling to keep her job and mine up. At one point he came down to where we were and demanded that I continue to help him and began to yell at me. He said, its right there, just do it! I said, no sir, that is not my job and I am helping her tonight, I do not have time. He continued to raise h*ll and I continued to stand my ground with him. I could not believe this man came on my job and did this. Not once in all the weeks I've been helping him did he ever say: I know you do not have to do this for me, thank you. The one night I helped another co-worker instead of him, he lost it. Then later on the young man next to me pushed a loaded tote down his track, it flew off and approximately 30 pounds slammed into my back. I continued to work my entire shift with back pain from the accident. Yes, it was a bad night indeed, but I made it-so will you. There was a time in my life when I would have let a person get away with what this co-worker did tonight. I faced this man head on and didn't back down, this is exactly what you are doing, just another situation. Look how many responses your blog has, I would say that many people not only care about your journey but that you are helping quite a few of them too. I would even dare to say that you could start a blog and make money at it because this blog has done so well. You have a story to tell that will/can help many others. You are going to come out of this because you are not a quitter!
  14. Glad to hear you braved this appointment and are going to get the work done. A big motivator is the finished work that will give you a healthier and more attractive smile. 5 thumbs up, nice post!
