  1. Are you sure the fungus is that bad? Some fungi are very toxic, and other types aren't as bad. Maybe you can ask the landlord to have someone come in and check on it?
  2. Yes. I'm glad other people have found someone to be with, but it really makes me feel like there's something wrong with me.
  3. Thanks, ejc. I hope we can both find peace soon.
  4. Hi, Alfa!! This is a great place to find support. There are a lot of nice, caring people here. Some hours of the day it isn't very busy here though, so you may have to wait a bit to get an answer. I'm in the U.S., and it's 4:50 am in my time zone...but I'm anxious and depressed and cannot sleep. Congratulations on getting off of the Ambien!! It can be hard to leave something like that behind. I hope you enjoy the time you spend here and gain a lot of helpful information. --LoneSquirrel
  5. My heart hurts. I can relate, ejc. I feel anxious right now, lonely, and my heart feels heavy. I think about the people I know, and how everyone else seems to have someone. They have a partner, friends, kids, a dog...whoever. Why am I like this? Why can't I be loveable? Why can't I be more like other people (people who have someone)?
  6. I'm sorry, womanofthelight. I hope you were able to get some good sleep.
  7. I hate to admit it, but I did something of that caliber the other day. I was in the drug store, and there were some lawn chairs on the bottom shelf that were only kept from falling off of that shelf by a flimsy plastic "ledge." I touched one of the chairs to look at it, and the whole display fell. Everyone in the checkout lines turned to look at me as I struggled to pick them up, muttering obscenities to myself. But the piece of plastic on the shelf just wouldn't hold. The chairs fell over again, and everyone turned around again to stare at me. So I left them on the floor, looked at all of the gawkers and shrugged, and then walked away. That's right, Rite Aid...it was me. Come and get me!!!
  8. When people don't put their shopping carts back where they belong, and the carts are left to scatter wherever the wind blows them...like into the side of my car.
  9. The ice cream truck went around my neighborhood about 12 hours ago...and I still have that ridiculous song stuck in my head.
  10. I know what you mean. Sometimes I feel like a dark cloud is over me after I get one of those foreboding feelings. I hope you are feeling better now.
  11. I know. It really alarms me that so many people seem to like him. I think he could easily start WWIII.
  12. Be financially stable Be happily married Have a dog Be healthy
  13. I feel anxious and restless. I'm tired, but I don't think I'll be able to sleep.
  14. Maybe watch a funny movie, or put your mind in a calm place with some meditation or deep breathing. Also, I don't know about where you are, but the night is calm and peaceful here. I was thinking about sitting outside and looking out at the starry night sky. I used to keep a large aquarium, and doing maintenance on it always occupied my mind and calmed me down. Do you have any hobbies like that?
  15. Okay...that's really creepy. I nearly posted the same reply about an hour ago (right about when you posted), but I'm new and I didn't want to offend any meteorologists who may post here.
  16. I can identify with what you're going through...and it really stinks to feel like a burden. Oddly enough, I wound up being a rock for my family when my dad was sick and dying, and that's how I figured out that there is some sort of strength within me. I suspect that you have more strength within you than you realize. Right now you need to use it to care for yourself. If you put the work in to go to therapy sessions, journal, read and study some self-help books a little each day, etc. it will help you get closer to standing on your own two feet. Even just taking a shower can help you feel more "on track," so make an effort to do that and see if it helps motivate you to do a couple more things as well. Don't forget to be kind to yourself. Imagine what you would say to a friend who was going through what you're going through, and extend that same consideration to yourself. Do your best to look forward instead of looking back. We all look back and criticize ourselves for things we have or haven't done, but it doesn't really help...it just makes us feel worse. When I catch myself looking back, I tell myself to get back to looking ahead. Sometimes it works.
  17. I really like that!!! ...but how do you get to the point that you don't care what your family thinks?
  18. Hi, Mamapanda!! I'm new here too. I've posted on other boards, but not a depression board. It's nice to be able to connect with people in a supportive environment, and this seems like a pretty safe place to do so.
