I also cant seem to get a answer one way or another from my family, if they want to see me or not on Christmas. This used to be a exciting time of year, now its lonely and scary

Maybe.......all I know is right now, NOTHING interests me. I wish i could sleep period. But I get up and its usually guilt that gets me up. There is no on here but I still feel guilty for sleeping too much.

My life is just so on hold right now. I have no one in my life that needs me like I did for years and I dont like being with me.

I dont enjoy anything, so dont know what to do. I so really want to smoke lately. I have had no apetite so it a challenge to get myself to eat good or at all. I wish all this would change.

Lance,
 
I am glad you have a few good friends.  I am also glad me being here has helped a bit as well!  
 
I am wondering though could you be expecting too much from yourself now? You became sick.  You fought so hard and tried so many things.  I remember how discouraged you were when you did not get the results you wanted quickly.   If you didn't expect so much from yourself how do you think your life would be different?  Would it be different at all?
 
It would be interesting to discuss.

My daughter got a kitty a while back. Its name is Elsey, it has no tail. He's part minx, so no tail. Hoping to see it Christmas, but not sure if I will be seeing them.

Of course I do, I used to be able to do it all! 10-12-14-16-18 hour days were not uncommon then come home and be a husband and a dad and try to do this financial services business im trying again right now.

I was able to do it all.............and then something happened and everything was different, I dont know why, I dont know what happened. I went from being it all to being nothing, dissapointing my family. Its hard starting all over.....alone. I do have a few good friends, one will be picking me up for another good friend and You have been with me through this and I appreciate you very much. I mentioned last Sat to our office managers husband who was a Rep. then went back in to being a pastor, that through all this I found God too, I just have to remember he is with me

Lance,
 
You worked very hard for a very long time and now you are trying to get your life back on track.  I get the feeling you expect a lot from yourself.  Is that true?

I just wish I could feel good about something, I just would like to feel at least a little happy, just for a minute, not to be worried, anxious and scared. I walked to the train station yesterday and my roommate drove me to the store, thats not going well.

Mycounselor is ok, we dont get much time together. I just wish I was the confident, tough old me. Dont know why I broke.

Lance,
 
I'm here listening. 
 
Sorry you didn't win the contest.  You certainly won us over!
 
I'm glad to hear you are getting out there today and seeing your counselor regularly.  Does she seem to be helping?
 
You say you feel like your not progressing but it sounds like you are progressing to me.  What do you think you would be doing differently in your life if you were progressing?
 
And no smoking does not sound good!

I cant believe its Dec 17, time going by scares me and I dont know why. Maybe because I feel like im not progressing. Plus with the meds, time is kinda like a blur and a lot of the previous week I dont remember.

I     Really    am     not     enjoying      this     part    of    my    life!

and smoking sounds good too
