Bluebell I am praying for you.   We survived mother's day. 

Last night was pretty bad for me. I was feeling anxious all day and cried myself to sleep.  A bit glad though cause I got to see my mom, even if it was just in my dreams, I felt so close to her. It was a weird dream split into two. One of us at the beach and the next was reliving watching her take her last breaths of life.   Im just so tired of feeling the guilt and the sadness... I miss her terribly and I've realized my feelings of resentment towards some people in my life still lingers.

I am okay, not great, but okay.

To put it out there, I am going through what is called discontinuation syndrome from an antidepressant I was not tolerating. I am one of those that this syndrome is particularly bad. You can look up discontinuation syndrome from an antidepressant if you want more information.

My post last night in the LASTEST ACTIVITY around 2-2:30 AM

"is anybody out there? I am feeling pretty bad and alone."

It was very disappointing not to get an answer, but I survived.

Thanks Brett I'll try it see if it helps

Sherri, I just went to another therapist. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right fit. Oddly enough, I like my first therapist a lot as a person, and she and I have remained friends.

I am sorry to hear about your insomnia. I can handle just about anything if I have a good night's sleep. I am a Nutritionist and I have been able to find a nutritional equivalent to a lot of medications. Not with insomnia or depression though. I do believe that magnesium is a big help with insomnia. It relaxes the body if not the mind.

I hope it is a positive experience too Sherri.

Bluebell my escape is work I work for a surgeon so I must focus on work plus plan ahead always so I don't have to think of my life just his which I'm like his work wife booking even his appt around our appt to keep things moving for him always so this last bit we have been so busy I work late and take work home so I found it easier to keep my mind on work not me. As for reality it hits me every night as I also seem to have insumona so lots of time I'm up at 2am for hours. This is my escape. I'm sorry Brett for your experience I'm hoping mine is as positive like bluebell  my doctor found me someone who deals mostly in grief counselling so I said I'd try it.
