Stop The World, I Want to Get Off!

Friday, December 10, 2010

The past few weeks have been very stressful for me. First we decided to lease a car and, of course, I agonized over the finances of it.

Then we had to put our senior dog to sleep because she had developed cancer.

Then our microwave stopped working.

Then we tried to find another dog and had a tough time choosing between two. We wanted to rescue both of them, but didn't have the energy to do it.

Now we're in the middle of the Christmas season and cards are arriving daily. I need to get my cards mailed, but I don't have the strength. I'm fighting fibromyalgia and depression at the same time. Oh, yes, my partner is not taking his meds and is crying over our deceased furry friend.

I want to crawl under a blanket and tell the world to go away. I hate it when the phone rings; if it weren't for the bills arriving, I'd stop getting my mail. There's always something for me to deal with in there.

I'm cold, lethargic and exhausted. Maybe it's time to bring in the light box we bought for SAD.

    Maybe you are both grieving over your loss in addition to all of the chaos of the holidays. It can all get so overwhelming. Get enough rest. Take care of yourselselves and each other. Try to get your exercise in--it is a natural antidepressant. And if you have to -- fake it til you make it. Things will get better. Make lemonade out of the lemons!!!!

    Nancy, everyday is a gift from God. Cherish everyday. You have a beautiful new car and I guess quite a nice new dog. You still have each other. Things brake, dogs die. You have to go on. Come on now Nancy. We love you. Tomorrow things will look better. Try to get some rest.

    When it rains it pours. Just keep trying to smile and it will help your spirits. I have dealt with depression and found that when I tried to show a happy face (along with my meds) I did do some better. We also lost a beloved pet and I promise, time does help--a new furry baby won't replace the old one but will also help some. ((HUGS))
