What a pain.
I'm sorry, Scooter. Hopefully, it will begin to kick in soon!!!!

I want to make healthy changes but i also want to make no effort at all.

A big dump of snow is on the way so Winter is not done with me yet.

I've only made 1500 posts but i've given 4000 hugs. I like that!
You're an Olympic-caliber hugger, Whatever. That's a good thing!!

I'm sorry, I can't recall off the top of my head, have you guys made med moves lately? Sorry for asking.

Hang in there. Do what you can do. Don't judge yourself. Your depression is sitting on you right now and expctations must be adjusted.

Sending you support!!!

I went to my momís house and found the tax document I was missing. I am going to get my taxes professionally prepared this year. Usually I do it myself but I have four W-2s this year. Plus I have my usual childcare tax credit, student loan interest, etc etc. not up to it. Plus Iím always terrified of being audited because Iím not good at keeping paper work around. So yeah. HR block it is. I have to get there soon. I really, really, REALLY need the money. Last year I got a decent amount because I made so little. Thus year I made about the same, maybe slightly more. I have to pay taxes on my disability claim though so idk how much that will be another reason for professional help.


My cat is doing well. Except one of them, Iím suspecting the cat who had surgery, is vomiting. I keep finding it around the house. Itís not that much so Iím not that concerned. The surgery cat has a sensitive stomach and is likely just getting used to his new food.


I have therapy in an hour but donít feel like going. I never feel like going. I think itís because I just donít have anything to talk about anymore now that Iím stable. Plus itís so late at night. By 8pm I just want to be in my sweats in bed. I did talk her into biweekly sessions instead of weekly sessions so thatís good. I guess Iíll just suck it up and go.


Any chance this is connected to hormonal changes ? I might be mistaken but I think you had a few low days prior to your period in the last few months ?? I dunno just a thought

Oh lord IRS audit We got audited about 5-6 years ago.. I got that letter and almost passed out I was shaking.. we called and ours just was plucked randomly out of the system. It was cleared up pretty quick I mean we are both on disability thereís no extra money anywhere.

When we were working we had a local accountant do ours.

Hope tomorrow is a better day for you

I did get my psychiatrist appointment moved up to this Thursday because it wasnít until March 10th and I need help sooner than that. I went to the crisis center yesterday. Basically itís just a place at the clinic I go to where you can talk to someone if your feeling bad, and can do activities like drawing, coloring, listening to music, watching Netflix/YouTube on their big tv , have snacks and drinks like coffee tea or hot cocoa. I was honestly too anxious and tense to do any of those so I just talked to someone for a bit. Itís nice to know thatís available though itís a great thing.


Iím missing my cats like crazy. Thank you for all your replies about them I appreciate it , sorry I havenít been able to reply to everyone individually but Iím thankful for the support


Iím so sorry your struggling

Iím thinking the stress of moving even tho itís a good thing could knock anyone sideways.

Glad you have gotten an appt sooner !

Thatís really awesome you have a place like that to go...

Go easy on yourself

So I think she realised it wasn't something that bothered me.


LOL. thatís funny !

Ohhhhhhh damn 5 weeks ?? Long time, I understand that we get told that and itís true meds take time but just hearing ď5 weeksĒ would make me nauseous.

Hereís hoping you get relief much much sooner

Sending compassion.


Good for you !
