I'm glad you will be working with psychiatrist that treats you well. Feeling safe with and trusting the doctors we work with as we work through these issues is extremely important. I'm glad you are standing up for yourself and your own wellbeing. (((hugs)))

I really don't remember much of my childhood but there are some pictures of me jumping rope. If I could be a child again, I think the fancy slides would be a blast.

Chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream for a banana split, and strawberries over cheese cake. yummmm

"Blessings" by Laura Story. I'm going to hunt for a cd so I can sing this at church.

My sister told me I was her very best friend.

About the only thing I enjoy these days are my grandchildren. Being a grown up right now has been extremely painful between physical problems and emotional memories. sigh

I kind of wish I wasn't here anymore. Things are happening all around me and I can't find stability anywhere. I don't like myself at all right now and I can't imagine why anyone else likes me. I have to fake everything and I am tired of faking. It hurts my cheeks to keep that happy face on. I called and left a message for Dr.B but he won't hear it until Monday. I'm praying for death. I won't kill myself. I've asked for a heart attack or brain anyorism, a car wreck, anything so I can escape into the arms of Jesus.
I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes,I'm sometimes out of control but I love and give with all my heart. If you can't accept me at my worst then you don't deserve me at my best.
WolfFaerie replied to MarySings's response:
Dear Mary~ I'm so sorry you're hurting right now. Offering safe gentle hugs if okay? I feel like you do on certain days where just the thought of putting on a happy face makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. I loathe days like these very much because that is how I had to grow up. Where everyday I had to look to my mother for the mood that I could have for that moment to be safe from any harm that came my way. It was like constantly walking on eggshells everywhere you went. Always wearing a happy face mask, so no one outside the family knew what was going on. It was a hellish way to grow up and live thru.
Mary, do something that makes you happy or at least comfortable with yourself. Please be kind to yourself. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Gentle hugs?
