As I read these responses I am crying, not because I am sad, because I see genuine concern, respect and understanding.
Understanding that can only come from being in the same place at one time or another.
I love this forum and am grateful , so extremely grateful to have found it .
Thank you

Ditto on the tear-filled eyes!!...and very grateful for the messages, the support and the HOPE you all provide. I have felt so alone dealing with all of this until now. I fought hard to get well, but I needed compassionate support from those who also deal with this disease. My family --as much as they try--just does not "get it"--but YOU all do.

I , too, start each day in gratitude for what I HAVE-- not what I have lost.

I appreciate the responses but im getting a little tired of everyone telling me i need counseling...thats not why i come here. I come here to share stories and experiences and to vent. Its a cliche response that i can get from pretty much anyone I talk to. Telling me i need counseling is counterproductive and is not going to make me do it any sooner..trust me. So again I appreciate your concerns for me but please STOP telling me i need counseling

ok, try yoga instead. the philosophy aspect can help you shift thinking patterns as well.

and really calling something cliche just because you hear it repeatedly is silly - especially if you're just doing that to overlook the validity of it.

at this point, you "share stories" so often that it's like a dependence, and our responses, especially the "support" of "it's totally normal to feel that way" are getting to the realm of rewarding you for not dealing with your feelings in a positive way. we're enabling you, in a sense, to stay unhealthy (mentally).

so, since you don't want encouragement to make positive changes, I will say farwell to you on the forum in posts of this respect, since anything else at this point is just going to keep you unwell, and I won't contribute to enabling you to do this to yourself.

since I won't be reading any longer, I really do wish you well, and hope that you find your way out of this pit one (healthy) way or another.
