  1. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    Sounds like trauma from past relationships that weren't healthy?

    Kid, sweetie, you are scaring me. I hope you are safe.

    Thanks. I did talk to her and she faxed the note, so hopefully I will never hear about it again!!!!

    Going out of my mind with worry. My employers are such bureaucratic a*holes that they require a doctor's note for Tuesday, because I asked to work only 4 hours on the phones and the remaining 2 on files (my shift was 6 hours long), and said my doctor recommended it. I've been phoning my psychiatrist all day but she's been on rounds at the hospital. She was supposed to call me at 3 but didn't. I am supposed to have the note by Thursday. I don't know what will happen if I don't have it. I could get sent home, then found to be in violation of my return to work by my insurance company and have my remaining payment cut off/delayed, etc. My employers are truly such pedantic a*holes that they would do it.

    Unfortunately they've found an "inflamed anomaly" in his lung now. He has to have another ct scan of his lungs.

    Tired. Glad I have today off, though.
  7. But what if your life is perfect?

    Depression, like many other illnesses, can be triggered or can just happen for no reason. It's not your fault. You need to see a psychiatrist and possibly a therapist as well. There are many medications better than Prozac out there nowadays.

    I am: Exhausted, from my first day at work on the phones, and my first 6-hour day Guilty, for missing class tonight even though I knew yesterday I wouldn't be able to do it and emailed the teacher PMSing Disgusted with myself for comfort eating. Worried about my friend.

    It's hard to have good judgement when you're depressed. Be kind to yourself

  11. comparing myself to others

    Regarding eating, people eat the way they do for a reason, psychological or physical or other (socioeconomic is a big one). I don't know about you but both my parents were quite overweight so I think I was somewhat doomed genetically (although when I was younger I was fairly slim). Also I have severe food anxiety from growing up without enough food. You are still a "lady" regardless of how you eat. Some people are just slim - I have a petite friend who is a size zero. I feel like a sasquatch around her, lol. But a size 14-16 is the smallest size in the "plus sizes" and that's worth remembering. Not fat, at least not by North American standards. Go to Foverver21 or Old Navy and look at the plus-size models. They are beautiful. Do they look fat to you? Not to me. I do believe you need to love and accept yourself at the size you are in order to let go of any weight.
  12. comparing myself to others

    I so identify with everything you wrote and I am 48!!!! 30 is young and I know several people who went back to school in their 30s. Perhaps there is a two-year program at technical college related to your degree? I knew a guy with a history degree who did a 2-year Internet security course, and a girl with a Biology degree who did a landscape architecture program. Just thoughts. I know there's another DF member on here, scienceguy, who is trying to get a job related to his science degree and having a hard time. Maybe talk to him for inspiration? Big hugs to you, Lauryn

    Trying to write comedy for class tomorrow, but it's hard to concentrate. I'm very worried about Mark, and also dreading my first day on the phones at work tomorrow. It's also my first 6-hour shift (I've been working 4-hour shifts in my gradual return to work). Both things I'm dreading. I may miss class tomorrow, especially if I still haven't heard that Mark's okay.

    I hope you feel better soon. (((((((hugs)))))))
