My Absence


l am sure a few of you have noticed that I have not been posting much. I will admit that I am fighting some depression issues. I always will fight depression, but sometimes like now it is worse.

No one did anything to me, nothing big has happened. Just the hardness of life sometimes get me down. Dealing with my own health issues, and then my husband's as well. Staying here locked in this house get to me. Not feeling better, and the lack of specialists now play a part in it all.

But I will rally above all this and conquer what I can. The rest I will cope with the best way I know how. Today I kind of hit a brick wall with my health challenge and had to slow it way down. You know how it is, you have a huge list of things that you want to do, then you end up doing just what has to be done. So I trimmed all the dogs tails, did some preventive medicines on them, trimmed up both females faces into the classic teddy bear cut, and cleaned the little ones ears again. I did pick up the house and my room as well. But that was about it, I was spent.

But I di think of you guys, my friends. I do get very lonely, but I dont want to whine to anyone. Won't do any good overall, and we all have our own issues to deal with.

So keep your head up, chest out, and be proud...... Of surviving another day.

Ann

I don't try to plan to do too much and when I do a couple of things I feel pleased with myself!

I really do know how you feel. When I feel down, (and I have been on and off for a while) I find it is too easy to become withdrawn, even from this place. Like you, I don't want to bring anyone else down with my issues, and not talking to anyone means not having to talk about them, so I can avoid them at bit that way anyway. But I am not sure it is a good thing, and in the end it may become self perpetuating.

I do find this place the easiest to come to when I need to unburden, especially on an emotional topic. After all, here you are not really imposing on anyone - if they don't want to read, they don't have to.

A trick I have found effective is to give myself a necessary task I won't enjoy and have been avoiding, on the basis that if I get it out of the way now, it won't bring me down, because I am already down, and at least I won't have to waste time on it later if and when I feel better. Crazy as it seems, this has worked for me in the past. Whatever you do, good luck, and I look forward to hearing from you again when you feel up to it.

Hang in there. The last couple years have added more juggling, burnout, exhaustion and craziness to everyone's life, which doesn't help. Keep plugging along at whatever pace you can mange. People understand. Take it easy when you can.

I understand how health and just life can get to you. My GF Diane has health problem and sometimes just getting the bare minimum done can wear her out. So she does what you do, keeps doing if sometimes very slowly and not very much while trying not to beat herself up for not being able to do more.

Having people who care and will listen to you helps a lot. I care and so do many others on here. I hope it helps though having someone to give you real, not virtual hugs is so much better. Meanwhile I am sending you my best wishes for things to improve and also big naked virtual hugs.
Jim

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

I tend to think that I am still 35 and can get it all done. But that is life and I am embracing it.

So where were you when I lived in Wyoming? Hmmm, you're so right about life, but found my smile again. Wearing it and hugs.

Thank you, and I am always here if you ever too need to expel verbiage. I am much better today, and been cleaning out cupboards which helps. Hugs.

Jim, that means so much and I will take a virtual hug anyday. I feel like no one would want to have to deal with my health issues, but perhaps in the future I might venture out again. Really is a pity because I know I am a very good lover, and it is I who ends things because I feel so unsexy. I need to work on myself and get myself more confidant.

Diane kind of felt the way you do and still sometimes finds if very hard to accept the limitations her health imposes. Some days she has a lot of trouble with her balance. If she drops something she lets it be because she will not risk falling trying to pick it up. I know one of the things that surprised her when we started seeing each other was how I was just fine walking at her pace and stopping when she needed to sit down in her walker. I think part of the reason is I had a very bad back problems till I had surgerys to fix it. Taught me about not being able to do what I thought I should. Ann, remember your health is not who you are and there are people who can understand and accept that. May you meet one of them and soon.

I am always willing to share a hug as I know how much I value getting them. I also know that friendly naked ones can be the best of all.
