Bob- I'd talk cloths but all I have is well not a lot. Now accessories we can talk about because I don't know what to take or even if I have anything to take. lol I'm already trying to figure out how many pages to take.

Terri- Thank you. I know I want to go now before I change my mind. I think I'm afraid I'll change my mind. Like if I think on it too much I'll scare myself and I won't go. Because lets face it the idea does scare me. I mean people scare me to death. And I'm planning on going out and be among people. I must be crazy!

Now Bob - don't you go being a hater! Especially since I ended up having to do 4 months of accounting for a client who must have their tax return done next week. His wife has very late stage cancer and he's behind because he has been taking care of her. So of course, I didn't mind at all. I actually liked having that much work for one client. I got into a good grove and the day flew by. I am nearly done and should be able to finish up on Monday.

It was a good day until about 10 minutes to 5. At that point, I went to file my review notes that I got back from my boss. I noticed on one that he wrote " it is silly, no ridiculous, that you put the $3 statement fee in the Dues and Subscriptions account." First, the little fee has been posted into this account since at least 2005 - trust me, I actually looked it up. Second, it's $3 per month so not really worth the paper. Third, even if it was a mistake or even a gross error, how freaking rude to say it was "silly, no ridiculous" to have done that! Why does this man consistently do stuff like this? And it's almost always little like this so when you think back about it, it seems to small to get hot over. But I feel like he is just riding me over little stupid stuff like this all day, all week long. At least it's Friday. I know I'll feel better on Monday.

But I will be looking at the job ads this weekend. Bob - too bad you hired someone. I may in the market for a job very soon

Linnea - I'm very excited for you trip. I don't know the right answer about going now or waiting. The right answer will come to you. YEAH that you're going!!

Gayle - I'm sorry sleep is so hard for you. I have had periods in the past (thankfully only a few times) where I went months with little to no sleep. Lack of sleep is serious - I'd talk to your doctor.

Terri - I hope you're feeling better soon.

Linnea - oh girl that is a toughy. I would tend to want to go right now, too. This is such a beautiful time. Saving for the fall will make it more special though. It is totally cool that you are excited about what to bring.

Bob - ok days are good, too. Good to hear the plumber is coming. No I never got back to sleep and didn't take a nap either. I did do yoga, though. That really perks me up.

I guess I better go get dinner started.



Peace Out,

Terri

Linnea- Not stupid at all, great to be excited about it! With that said??? the save up and keep your reserves sounds smarter- phooey. Could you pay for the copy writing and finish up the book now, while saving for the fall trip? I don't know, I'd probably go, to help get out of the depression, and get inspired by the scenery, but don't follow me, I'm lousy with money. Your plan to save is sounder. Now girlfriend to what to wear and accessorizing- hello we have to talk.

Teri and Bob- thank you. My friend lives in Queen Creek which is right near Phoenix. I was thinking September. Though I found out I really have the money to go now, it would leave me with no reserves. The only problem is now that I made the decision I want to go now. I have a problem with waiting. I'm already trying to figure out what to take. How stupid is that?

Had an ok day, especially for a cloudy raining day- usually bummers. None of the guys I was supposed to do a final interview for showed up, which was too bad, but we had one on hold I liked from earlier in the week who we hired- yeah over. I did get some much needed accounting done while waiting, which was really great. Other than hiring, we prepped some for the new guys arrival Monday, and I got the payroll done. So, pretty quiet day, no highs, but no highs, and hey I worked in a shower at the Y! Plummer hopefully tomorrow!

Kim- Leave early and go to the beach- I hate you……ok, I am just mildly irked, ok, I’m glad for your ½ day of work and beach time.

Linnea- I hope DSHS get’s in gear soon! Glad you have plans to go to Arizona- to see your friend? I have loved my trips to Arizona!

Terri- Hope you got back to sleep. I did better last night, but I am so behind this week. I got a re-fill on Ambien, and hope to zone out both weekend days. Hope you can get that hike in this weekend.

Timoree- Congrats!!! Hope you have many years of wedded bliss!!!

Gayle- Have you tried taking Tylenol for the pain, and Advil Pm to help with sleep? I don’t know if they use the same chemical for sleep, but I thought it might be worth a try. I don’t know if this will help or not if something is prescribed, but when I tried taking a sleep aid every day- Ambien- it really bothered me, and I quit. Sometime later I was so exhausted I had to sleep and took it for two nights and quit and I found I had no problem. Since then, as long as I don't take it for more than 3 days in a row, I'm fine. I guess I am just saying to try different things, I had an all or nothing approach and it cost me a long time getting any help.

Gayle - so sorry you're having so much trouble sleeping. I have to take a sleep med, but it doesn't make me feel bad in the morning. That's wonderful you are getting to enjoy your reading. I can't read for very long at a time.

Linnea - glad you decided to go to visit your friend in AZ. If you want to miss the heat you better wait until late Sept or even Oct. It stays hot down here very long. Where in AZ is he? I hope you get the food stamps you need quickly.

We just went for a motorcycle ride to Denny's. We had coupons for free Grand Slams. I had the egg whites, chicken sausage, and hearty wheat pancakes. I only ate half the pancakes. It was late so that will be lunch too.

I just got to talk to an old friend in Cali. That was nice. I'm going to try to visit her when we go out there.



Peace Out,

Terri

Hi all. Well I think I'll go to Arizona. But not until late summer. That way I can avoid the extreme heat. I don't handle the heat well and I'd like to enjoy my time there. Plus it give me time to save some money. At least if DSHS would get their butts in gear and help me. Because I could really use the help. And all I'm really looking for is more food stamps. But I won't pass on medical or cash. Because it would be nice to afford this trip and to buy some much needed cloths. I'd also like to have the money to get my copyright done for my book. I know I know its only $35, but I'm having trouble getting it together. Hence the need for DSHS to get their butts in gear.

Feeling a little better today. Didn't sleep good last night as i kept waking up. I see my p/doc on Monday and I'm going to talk to him about it. I don't particularly want to go on any more medications than I'm already on but maybe he can tell me something else to try or up the dose of something i am already taking. Sometimes i take Tylenol-PM and that helps but it leaves me feeling bad in the mornings. It helps with the pain though. I'm into reading right now...read two books in the past 48 hours and about to start another one. I love to read....

I got married last week. Didn't get to wear my dress and we got married in front of a few friends. Next March 13th we will renew our vows. I'm hoping by then to fit my dress. I hope everyone has a good day!

Ennaid - sunshine & record temps sound wonderful.

Marilyn - Happy packing!!

Dot - good news on the recovery.

Gayle - sorry you don't feel 100%. Take care of yourself.

Bob - that's a club I wouldn't want anyone to joi. It's just miserable. Hope you got some rest.

Kim - ouch, you make me homesick for the beaches of Cali. Have fun.

Dee - glad weigh in wasn't as bad as you expected.

I had a terrible night and called in to cancel going on a hike today. I'm so bummed. It is what it is. I'll just take it easy today. I tried to go back to sleep this morning, but that didn't work. I should be able to take a nap this afternoon.



Peace Out,

Terri

Morning sparkers, raining here today. Setting documents up today ready for car. Strange, now time is nearly here I feel nervous about it all. Still following a little bit at a time policy as that helps me to cope.

Gained half a pound at the weigh in, so not anywhere near as bad as I feared.

Sending positive thoughts and love to you all, hope your day goes well, blessings, Dee. XX

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

We are having another delightful day of mid 80's and a nice breeze. I wish I could day that I was out enjoying it. I guess I'm glad I have a job .... maybe tomorrow I will bring a change of clothes and cut out half a day and go to the beach. Yes! That sounds like a good plan

Dido may not be waving her ‘White Flag’, but I am. Pooped!!! I have joined Terri as one of the walking dead, NAZP- National Association of Zombie People. I went back to sleep after getting the crews out, and got about an hour extra sleep, before the contractors started pounding next door. Tried to get a nap in the afternoon, and finally fell asleep, when my foreman called in her rapid fire, hyper speech mode. No problem, just update- aaarrgggh! Oh, well at least she woke me up for iPad Today on TWIT- yeah! take care, bob ps. yeah short post!

Been having a really hard time accessing the site in the last day or two. In fact i still couldn't access the site by going through the website today. It still says they are having technical difficulties but then i had this bright idea to go through one of the emails and was able to get on. At first i thought it was a problem with me but then i read on facebook yesterday that they were indeed having problems with the site.
Don't feel 100% today for some reason...not really sure how i feel. But I'm taking things easy and just playing around on the web and reading today. Have some things that i need to decide how to handle...people saying they are going to do something and then backing out. Hope that doesn't happen with this issue...

Can't believe the weather we are having. We have had 4 days of sunshine and record breaking temperatures. Yesterday it went up to 27 degrees!!
Sure brightens up my day.

HOPE is not pretending that there's never any sorrow - It's the knowledge that our troubles will be overcome tomorrow. It's the inner strength we call on to sustain us now and then, till our problems lie behind us and we are happy again

Maur - that's great you push yourself to get out and walk the dogs. Yes, I'm glad spring is coming, too. I really struggled with SAD more this year than ever before. Perhaps I just realized it more. I don't know.

Make it a good one everyone!

Peace Out,

Terri

Marilyn – Good on you standing your ground. Hope the cable works better. Thanks for the encouragement. How exciting you get your keys in 2 days?!? My hb would say a day and a wake up.

Kim – sorry about the hectic day. I had a terrible time getting on to Spark yesterday, too. Glad you didn't let it get you down.

Linnea – I forget where you are. If you took the bus or train it wouldn't be too bad. You should go.

Arg2000 – Yeah, know what you mean. Glad you had such a good day

Icandoit – It takes 11 positives to overcome one negative; wow! No wonder we have to work so hard at being positive. There is strength in numbers and together we can do it. I'm glad you posted.

Jo – totally agree with the meditation. Vampires of life, huh? I like your michelin man visual. Glad it's been a positive week.

Dee – This team is a blessing, huh? Good on you getting healthy stuff at the grocery store. I totally agree that we need to accept and love ourselves just the way we are. I believe that if we don't do it now we won't when we get where we think we want to be.

Takiya – Get To That Pdoc! Please! My pdoc resigned so now we have this nurse practitioner. The visit started with her asking what meds I take. Can't you read the chart?!? So, I totally get the new thing, however it's worth it. Just be honest and open about what's going on with you.

Oh man, I'm glad yesterday is over. I ate so much junk and felt sick all day. I'm starting my day with the caffiene I usually do. It helps so much. I slept good last night, too. I did take the Klonopin, however that is prescribed. I don't think that is what is making me feel like a zombie. I really think it's the antidepressent.

Today I meet with my Alanon sponsor, alanon meeting, and out to lunch. It's suppose to be real nice out today. Perhaps this afternoon I'll get outside to walk/run.



Peace Out,

Terri

Sometimes the hardest thing for me is to get dressed and out the door. My daughter's dogs are living with us temporarily, so it gives me purpose to get out for twice a day walks. This helps me get fresh air, sunshine, exercise and much needed vitamin D. occasionally I will run into people I know on the walks, so it gives me some much-needed socialization.

Fortunately, tomorrow is another day and with spring at the door, I'm glad I won't be dealing so much with my seasonal affective disorder. Good luck to all of you. No one ever said it would be easy.

Hello everyone. Just checking in. I see some people I haven't seen before...that's a good thing. I saw some good, some bad, some in between. Personally, it's been REAL bad for me. We're talking laying on the couch, zoning out, not eating (or stuffing my face, depending on the moment) not caring about my hygeine. This morning was the first shower I took this week and I literally had to force myself. My hb asked if I am ok...you mean he can't tell. I was in my daughters room yesterday just holding her pillow, rocking, and crying. I'm not sure where this came from, but she is seriously the only light I have in my life right now (or so it seems). Even though I want to be alone, I want nobody to talk to me, or look at me, or ask me to do anything, etc...I need her. I know it's time that I start seeing a pdoc again, but I haven't been able to make myself do it. My old one is so far away, that it's just not feasable, so I'll have to start out with someone new. I'm terrified. I have this problem that when I meet new people, it's almost like a reflex, I can't let them know how messed up I am.

On the positive...my mother-in-law should be released probably tomorrow. She's not happy about having to be on oxygen, but tough patootie for her.

I wish you all well. Till next time...

Hiya team, thank you for your kind messages and understanding. Went off the rails a bit over last day or two but think its over now and feel able to attempt SW plan again. Its basically common sense (lots of fruit veg and lean meat or chicken) versus too much fatty or sweet foods. Went food shopping last night and kept the basket healthy, so knew I was ready to start again. I read an article on SP about self esteem an liking yourself as you are NOW. I've really been thinking about that today and think its going to help.

Its a lovely bright crisp day today and I've already done a few things around the house. Hope you are all feeling well and hopeful, wishing those that aren't a boost and some of Gods' love.

DwD team, You have made a positive difference in my life and I am grateful to you. Blessings, Dee. XX

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

Good Morning! It is 8.47 am in the Uk

I read your post and really feel for you! I wonder if you have tried meditation, even with a very short meditation you can clear your mind and relax. I often do one minute meditations whilst on the computer and some great stuff with graphics on U-tube or The Secret or Global retreat.

It must be really hard for you, especially if you feel people are putting you down. Sometimes the best thing to do if you know you are going to run into these sort of people is put your protection up before. I put a big bouncy castle wall around me and then imagine them dressed in a rubber suit like the sumo wrestler ones or michelin man and when they start acting up I see them hit my bouncy castle wall and roll away. These people then wonder why you smile all the time! My friends that have tried it are all impressed at how well this works, even the skeptics!!!!

People that bring you down are Vampires lifes Vampires they suck out the life from you and it is just best never to let them in!

Not sure I agree with the 11 positive thoughts to overcome a negative one.....picture negative thoughts as weak (e.g.) a little mouse and positive thoughts as strong e.g.A shire horse. The problem is that most of us remember the negative, the bad people etc and we give it strength so we need to find a way to stop.

I like you have to work at it, so please, please do not think I am preaching, I like to hear other peoples coping strategies and try them out and I just thought these may help.

This week,for me has been pretty positive so far, although some vampires have tried to knock me, I am just bouncing them of surrounding them in love and letting them go! I am upping my exercise in small stages, I am watching my food and using this site and some others for motivation. Sending lots of positive energy to you and good wishes for a good week

Bob, thanks it is hard sometimes to get out when your depressed, but I have to keep pushing myself. Also I read your post about getting upset. I get upset to easily,I think sometimes my ocd gets to me and also I don't take any crap from people that want to be little me and treat my like crap. I do have heart and bp issues so I shouldn't be getting upset. But, when things don't go right or someone has rubbed you the wrong way it is hard. I look at, well try to as a negative thought and try to calm down and make it a positive, I learned in college that it takes 11 positives to overcome one negative. I need to calm down, I have already had a stroke in my 30's and lost a good job and good ins. and now no insurance. I am working from home doing what I love computer work online for people and teaching people how to read.

Hope every is doing ok today, I know as Bob said it's hard to tell a depressed person to have a goood day, well in somewhat similar meaning as he put it. I have to really work on this positive thing, because years of stress, I mean I was the top dog in worrying, I would really worry myself sick. I get so tired of being depressed and with OCD it is a struggle to even put your socks on imagine that is stinks. But, my goal is to get better. I hate being in pain mentally and phyicaly everyday, but I also beat myself up when I am not able to do the things I want to do. I used to be very athletic and race, now I am not able to and I am getting older. So, I suck it up keep my mind busy because old OCD loves to creep into my head and take over, nope staying strong, I have my days, but I must beat this. Keep your chin up everyone there is hope believe me, I know! :)

Don't get down, if you do, don't stay long, you can make it!

Thank goodness, I am finally able to log in tonight. I have been having some serious Spark withdrawal, LOL. I have had a pretty good day, got up and did Jillian Michaels BFBM this morning, did some laundry, played with my little girl, got some groceries, then went to church tonight. Feeling very good tonight. Especially now that I can talk you guys, missed you all day. Guess it didn't hurt to unplug and play with my little girl some. emoticon emoticon

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Don't worry be happy.

Hi all. Well today I went with my sister to wash granny. And was traumatized at having to help with it. I never wanted to see my grandmother naked. My poor sister has to do it every week. I feel bad for her.

I talked with my best friend Dan, who's in Arizona. He thinks I should go visit him. I'm actually thinking about it. It would be a HUGE step for me. It kinda scares me. But I'm not sure I can afford it. Do you know how hard it is to save money when on Social Security? Very very hard. And Dan is making it very hard to refuse.

Well it sure is nice to be able to log on finally. I've tried so many times today and have had very little luck. It's been one of those days. I was running around this morning trying to get everything together for me and the dog at work, and came into the living room to find him licking my peanut butter toast. No time to make another so I figured I'd stop on the way in - but forgot. That's kind of the day I had. Nothing seemed to work.

Alas - sometimes you're going to have days like that. I didn't let it get me too down. Now I'm watching Leaving Las Vegas. Another reminder that things could be a lot worse.

I must have been half asleep last night when I posted. Lol some of that didn't make sense. Hehe.
Saw my therapist this morning. Cancelled phone Internet and satellite and switched to the cable company. Had to listen to this long spiel from the phone company about what a mistake I was making. Not impressed. It's hard
Enough for me to make the calls and make decisions without having my confidence undermined!!! But I did it. Hooray! Off to pool in a couple of minutes for my evening away from the craziness.
I'm on my phone so can't remember all the posts.
Bob there are lots of great songs including Bobera Ann lol.
Terri, you are doing great keep on going a step at a time.
Now my memory is shot.
I hadn't thought if the song when I sent out good vibrations in my sleepiness. I had this feeling like it meant something then shrugged posted and went to sleep. So when I saw the comment I said ah ha and downloaded the song.
So good vibrations to all again tonight.
I get the keys for the new place in two sleeps.

Gayle – yes it was good to hear from Mitchell. Just looked at calander and I don't go see therapist until next week. Ugh. Didn't really get much change from the pdoc either. She just said to stop taking the Ramron at night. I was taking both Ramron and Klonopin to sleep. Last night I just took the Klonopin to sleep. I slept good. She says the Ramron will make one feel groggy and zombie feeling. She also said the Serazone (anti-depressent) will do that too. I had this grand idea to try to get off the Klonopin, too. I thought I'd not have caffiene today so I could sleep without the Klonopin.

Well, I caved by 9:30 am and made some coffee. I was eating all kinds of sugar and that can't be good either. I'll try to wean down on the caffiene.

Dee – getting a lot accomplished. You sound productive. So sorry to hear you are having crying spells though. Perhaps today will be better than expected.

Bob – glad I could be of service as the accounting accountability person...LOL. Zombie killing just being a bump in the road...I can see that. So perhaps I can get philosophical here and say that the zombie part of me needs to die so the real me can live...mmmm. The frozen meals I got are mostly chineese and I add chicken. Lots of veggies. Should be some what healthy. As for the friends thing. That is a toughy. I tend to feel lonely even in a crowd type deal, too. I remember this one man saying that if one dies with 2 or 3 good friends they are very blessed. I'm just now learning how to be a friend and not expect something of the other person. I am a good listener. That helps.

That reminds me of my craft time with the two ladies. We are friends, however the time we spend at the crafts is getting to be a real drag. You see it's getting so that the one friend seems to think she is suppior and is always “correcting” the other woman. I don't know how to get out of it. I just know that I dread going any more..

Kim – yes, accounting accountability persons unite! We all know how exciting accounting is!!! LOL Stomach is still messed up, but wee bit better.

Onemonstermom – good vibes back atch ya. Hope you got some rest.
------------------------------------------
---------------------

I took your advise, Bob, and the above is the saved post I did in Word from this morning. I couldn't get it to post though. Then I couldn't get into Spark at all. Any who, so sorry you couldn't get to the invoicing. It does sound like your hands were rather tied up. I like that....let what you do be enough.... I'm going to work real hard on that. Got to get it right you know? mmmmm....I think I might be missing the point.

Diane - I did want to also mention to you that I'm glad your hb is not in pain.

I did go to the AA meeting and got to go out to lunch with a friend. It was very nice. She gave me another perspective on my worries about Mitchell. I'm not accepting God's plan for all of this. I didn't tell her this, but yes I do struggle with "God's plan". I did tell her that I am in this case having a hard time. Actually it's in most of the time. I am getting better. It's just that I feel God let me down. That's so childish I know. Like God is suppose to jump to my command. In some ways I'm still mad at God for some really bad things that happened in my life.

Well....it's getting to be rather deep here, huh? Let's see, to change the subject I had a very healthy weight watchers lunch. My stomach was hurting after, though. So I just took some Pepto Bismol.

After my food disgests I think I do some yoga to get centered.



Jo – smiles, smiles, smiles …. you make me happy just hearing you are in such a good place.


Peace Out,

Terri

Too pooped to pop or in my case write a frinkin’ novella for a post-ha! Bad sleeping and weird, somewhat interesting dreams, so very little sleep. I caffeined up and did the final interviews with the first batch of employees today and hired one. And we have a good second, if our hot prospect that called today and is coming in Friday doesn’t work out. Big relief and very encouraging.

After the add, I waddled into our great health food grocery, and loaded up the ole kitchen. So, today is much more relaxed day than yesterday, which was one of those icky got tied up all day doing things I didn’t want to, and didn’t get to anything I wanted to, stressful, frustrating days.

I have been thinking over some interesting things my sister brought up when we talked. I’ll mill them around a while and share later if warranted. It’s something helpful and may help me break some old bad patterns. Also tonight honey, muffin cakes, kumquat, kitten is coming home late tonight!!! 3 days of debauchery with the triplets is taking its toll on me, ready for normal life to resume.

Let everything you do today be enough. bob

Terri- Forgive me Sister for I did not invoice yesterday. I’ll say 100 Hale Mary’s…….. I got so hung up with straightening out the ad, dealing with an insurance prob., etc., I never got to the invoicing I wanted.

Kim- I have sinnnnnnnnnnnned against you! I didn’t go and get my massage today, still doing the ad and fried. I’ll do some Swaggartian penance for my sinnnnnnnnz!

Diane- So glad your dh is getting some comfort for now. I’m sure it helps you a great deal to see him more comfortable.

NEEDTOBESLIM3- I super support you getting control of your eating. I too am a sabbotager and am working on this to. If you need more tasks outside to cover up, just let me know, I am always giving people lists to do! Seriously, I hope you find your smile, have a good weight in, and a great day tomorrow.

Marilyn- Now if you can just start falling asleep, when your are trying to catch up on sleep, you’ll be in good shape. Luv the Good Vibrations, but I’m more of a ba, ba, bob, bob-a-rant, ba, ba, bob, bob-a-rantannnnn……I was around 5 when Barbara Anne first came out and I was sure they were saying ba, ba, bob…….

Hello everyone. Good news for a change. My dh's meds are finally taking effect and he is feeling a lot less pain. So the morphine dose is OK for now.

Take care everyone.

Dianne

HOPE is not pretending that there's never any sorrow - It's the knowledge that our troubles will be overcome tomorrow. It's the inner strength we call on to sustain us now and then, till our problems lie behind us and we are happy again

Hello everyone, hope you are doing ok. Not great today, making bad food choices and feel disappointed in myself. Never going to lose any more weight if I don't control this need to sabotage efforts. My sister went home from hospital so should be relieved but she is so far away, Just feel like the world is massive, too big for me to make any kind of difference. Also keep crying for no reason, At least I could pass it off as hayfever yesterday as I was mowing the grass!! Don't know how I'm going to cover it up today!! The course I go to on a wednesday hasn't really caught my attention (boring) so not looking forward to this morning at all, Hey ho the people are nice and lunch is provided(not SW friendly though). Dreading weigh in tomorrow

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

Hi onemonstersmom

Love the name! I have read your post at 8.35am in the Uk and now I have that song "Good Good Good, GOOD VIBRATIONS" playing in my mind. What a lovely thought lets send a few good vibrations all over the world.

I have just done a 50min dog walk and I am feeling pretty positive, just need to decide what I want for my breakfast and then have a meeting with the charity I volunteer with (Homestart). Unfortunately I then need to look at financial paperwork and get organised....reality check coming! Tonight I am off with a friend to a demonstration of Trance Mediumship so that will be fun! Inbetween all that I want to fit in some strength training and at least another 30 min walk! Busy Busy Busy!

Smiles and Good Vibrations to all!



Spread a Smile. It's catching!

It sounds like everyone posting today is doing a bit better.

Slim - When I lived in Virginia, I had a large (for me) vegetable garden. I would get home from work and go play in my garden each night. It was always my favorite time of the day. I miss having a garden and often think I should plant something here - but it gets so hot for so much of the year. I can't bear to be out in the full sun. I tried tomatoes in a pot - but they didn't turn out so good.

Terry - As the accounting accountability person for so many, I am so happy that you have joined me in this very important quest. I'm glad that Mitchell took the news as well as he did. Maybe you can plan a visit from him and see how that goes. I hope your stomach feels better very soon.

Gayle - sorry you're down. I hope you're feeling better very soon.

JoHappy - you have such a wonderful outlook this week. I'm so glad you're seeing the bright side of things emoticon

Bob - As someone who has on occasion had to pray to not kill people, I am proud of the efforts you went thru to control your anger. I get so frustrated when things that should work, don't. I also dislike when someone else notices that I have made a mistake ...... ah, the rub of that!

Client just sent me something - better run get that done

Today has been super stressful we’ve had a big problem with the search engine of the Co. the labor ad is with, so I have been dealing with this and trying to calm down all morning. I have been dealing better with being so upset, by putting on my ‘Twin Peaks’ album (very calming), and posting to my friend feed, while calming down before calling the co. about the ad.

I was so upset at the cost and lost time that I was ready to kill, but am getting to more peaceful state of you catch more bees with honey now- can I release the bees inside their place after I catch them? Please? I usually would have cranked up the Death Metal, and called them right back and cussed them out. Instead I cooled down, and thought of some assumptions I had made, some weird coincidences and got into a less raging self righteous place.

I decided to e-mail, instead of calling, since she might trigger the evil bob back, and did make a few stern, but not nasty comments. Then I followed up a couple of minutes with a sweeter note to get the point across, but ease things up for a good result. I feel ok with the results, but hate losing the days, and am having a very hard time calming down. At least my earlier efforts have helped and didn’t ramp up the anger- metal….I think the other thing that colors my reactions is that I don’t like dealing with hiring and firing and so I am ripe for reacting strongly.

MacBreak weekly is on now, so I hope to calm down more and be able to do some accounting or Terri will get on me! Ha! My yoga teacher posted a picture on Facebook and I liked the thought a lot. Sometimes I feel odd saying have a great day to this group, not that I don’t wish it for you all, but because it feels a bit unappropriate for folks dealing with depression. So…..I liked this quote: “Let Whatever you do today Be Enough”. I posted the px. of the quote in my photo gallery on my Spark Page if you want a copy. And as always……take care, bob

Terri- Howdy accounting accountability person- luvvv the word play! Yes they do kill Zombies, but you’ll be famous and you know killing the walking dead is not a big thing- just a bump in the road. Try some health food TV dinners, they sometimes are a step up in quality. Your friend is lucky to have someone like you to talk to and visit with.

Linnea- Yeah parents moved out- right? Yeah?- room for paints to dry. I remember it’s hard for you to get out, hope you find a way. I hope you feel better, and keep on painting and writing!!!

JOHAPPYNOW- Great to think of you smiling all yesterday. One thing I started doing years ago, is smiling at people I see when I am out. I don’t even know them, I just look at them and give them a big smile. Some people are thrown a bit, but most just smile back and seem to like it. I even try it driving sometimes, and try and see if I can get someone to smile back even at a stop light. It is a nice habit, hope you enjoy spreading a smile today.

ICANDOIT_09- Great attitude to get up and go, even though you didn’t feel like it. Anybody can go out when they feel good, so big pat on your back for going out when you felt bad. I really have to do that myself. Keep it up and hope you keep posting here.

KIM- I’m dieing laughing at your Frau Blueker accupunturist. I grew up on a mountain surrounded by german rocket scientists- working for NASA- and with my slightly offbeat humor was frequently greeted with odd looks, and silences. They were wonderful gardeners, loved wood carving that I did, and we had many other similarities, humor notwithstanding. What really threw them also was that growing up I was shy, quiet, and serious, and then when I visited with them from about 25+ years old, I had become very open, talkative, and jolly due to having a business and being forced out of my shell, and they would look around for the pod I came out, since this strange loud person can't be Bob.

My wife went to Memphis, TN., close but not quite St. Louis. The weight is right, but I have a cat Jasper (aka. Hoss Catwright). He snuggles to a point, and then lashes out in a rage. Yes he does take after daddy in the paunch area and attitude, but my claws are less sharp! I need to take your friend advice to Linnea myself, it’s very good. I deal with a lot of people, but they all want something from me employees, clients, vendors. I am very lonely, in town, surrounded by people. I do great with people, but have never been good at doing the work to get friends- thanks for the advice, albeit intended for Linnea.

Terri...glad to hear that you heard from Mitchell and that he seemed to understand. Hopefully after talking about it with your therapist you will feel at peace about the situation. Hope you got some answers from your p/doc about your meds.

For some reason i am tired this morning. Glad that i don't have much planned for today but tomorrow will be a long day. Don't plan to do much today. Just rest up while i can.

Hi Everyone I wish to send you all a feeling of positivity and love. I had a really good day yesterday and smiled all the way through! I am setting my self some small goals for this afternoon because I have missed getting to my spiritual group and that nearly bought me down, however I have just decided it was not meant to be! so goals:-
1. Say Hello to one person I do not know on my afternoon walk and spread a smile.
2.Plan dinner so as not to eat rubbish.
3.Get some good quality sleep ready for a good day tomorrow.

Spread a Smile. It's catching!

Linnea - that is hard when you don't have a car. I live way outside of town, too. Without a car I wouldn't be able to get to town. I see some people wallking and riding bicycles on the highway. That looks really hard. I do travel to the other side of town to visit my friend. Perhaps your friend would be willing to do that, too. Have you asked them to come visit? Do you have a drivers lisence? Could you save for a car?

Dee - Good luck gettting the lawn done. My hb does the outside stuff. We mostly have dirt and sand since we live in the desert. He does have to spray for these nasty weeds called goatheads. I don't think I'll do a garden. I tried a couple years ago and it didn't go so well.

Mitchell sent me a response to my email. He sounded very grown up and took it well. I thought once this was dealt with I'd feel better. I don't. I suppose I need to accept that this isn't going to go away. I'll talk to my therapist and perhaps that will help. I see her Thursday.

Today going to the pdoc about the meds.

I was going to go for a walk with a friend. I called her last night and changed my mind. My stomach was hurting really bad last night. I feel better this morning, but I slept in. It is rather cold out now any way. I'm going to do my yoga later.

I'll do the elliptical this morning.

Make it a good day all. emoticon

Peace Out,

Terri

Good morning sparkers, going to mow the lawn today as just can't seem to tackle the housework at the moment. Think all that has gone on in last few months has hit. Getting out in the garden will help to blow the cobwebs away. Cluttered house is making me anxious and panicky. Sending you all sunshine and fresh air folks. Blessings, Dee. XX

This is in response to the post by mag311-2010. Also, everyone else hello and hope you are all doing ok. This is is the first time I have been on any pages and replying. I too suffer from health issues and severe depression. I decided today I am not going to let this awful depression and my health issues get to me. Went to work out today despite my pain and not wanting to go outside of my comfort zone. How are you today? I hope you are doing ok. Try to keep as busy as you can, and I keep saying don't let this get u down u can do it. I also have OCD and let me tell you it is not fun. Well, Good luck keep your chin up. Hope your brother is doing ok? Wish my brother and I were closer, you know sometimes people need to get along better, but in this world not going to happen. I have decided I can't let it get me down. Well, of the subject a bit, but you keep hanging in there.

Don't get down, if you do, don't stay long, you can make it!

Linnea - when I moved to Florida with my BF, I didn't know anybody in the state. I have become friendly with his Mother and Brother, but I have no family down here. I work in a very small office that is over an hour away from my house. When BF and I were getting along, it seemed more okay to not have friends. I have spent the last few years very lonely myself. One thing that I have learned very recently is that there are a lot of loney people out there. I have really made an effort to try to get to know some local people. At first I was afriad that they already had friends or wouldn't want to get to know me - but I have found that more often than not, they are feeling the same way. They are glad to have someone reach out to them as well. I think you sould give it a try with the couple of ladies you know in town. Maybe you could do something a few times a month so it's not too much for them to come get you.

If you can't get out physically - have you considered an online book club or something?

Terri- All my friends live out of town. My best friend is in Arizona and I'm in Washington state. There's a couple of ladies I know who are in town but I don't know if they want to hang out. Especially since I live out in the boonies and I have no car.

Diane - So sorry about your husband.

Gayle - Glad you had some enjoyment in your life.

Linnea - Yahooo, on the paintings and drawing. Also, got some writing done. What about your friend that you have mentioned before?

Bob - Yes, you did good attacking the accounting giant. Hey, don't they kill zombies in those apps?....maybe I'll tell my dr that's what I'm afraid of.... no better not...she might lock me up....LOL

Kim - so glad you're feeling better. That's hilarious your accupunturist didn't get your humor.

It is nasty out here again. Yesterday it was very windy. Today it turned cold, wet, and windy. So I did the elliptical workout.

I went crazy with frozen dinners for two when I went to the grocery store. I feel kind of bad because I had been cooking pretty good meals. Oh well, I guess I feel rather lazy this week.

Then I went to the AA meeting. After I helped cleaned the hall. Then I went out to lunch with a friend. She is older and her husband is getting very hard to care for. She hasn't been taking care of herself. She is feeling depressed, overwhelmed, and hopeless. I made her promise to make an appt with her dr. She has been getting an headache every day.

Got to go.

Peace Out,

Terri
