I can't get rid of this feeling of being "less than". I am supposed to do the store bookwork and it's beginning to be a real effort. I finally balanced the past months bank statements to within 9 cents. Now June is off $1400+. I am a failure. I try so hard to be accurate. Balancing the checkbook used to be so easy for me. Now it's a HUGE struggle.

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. Have patience with me as I heal.

Hello Mary,

I have been around the MD boards for a couple of years now. I do not write a lot but I read. I have seen many of your heartfelt, caring and insightful posts. You are not a failure. You are NOT less then.

You are amazing. Please always remember that. I know it is hard when things get so dark. When the pain is all that you can think about.

But I know you are an amazing person.

Thank you, ffltat. I certainly don't feel amazing but thank you for the compliment.

I was beginning to think I was all alone on this board. I guess there are many of us on vacation. I'm glad you posted.

Mary

I also deal with flashbacks. Hate them. Just when you think they are gone, they start up again. It can really ruin your day.

Mary, just wanted to say that I'm thinking about you. I understand that things that used to be so easy for us now come with so much effort... been there, still doing that.

Mary,
you are not a failure and not "less than". You're a kind, caring person that's just going through a tough time right now. Please don't forget that.
