Still way down

Im so bad a journaling, Ive started in the past and it doesnt last, plus I typ slow. Yesterday was ok, went to a noon meeting, had lunch with some of the guys from the meeting, then went to dinner and a Chapel service. Anxiety was bad all day. Tonight I have training with my financial services co. and a conference call at 9:30. In the morning I meet with the people Im doing career placement with for the next phase of  aptitute testing. So, I have stuff going on, so I dont understand why I cant feel happy or excited or like something good may happen. I just worry a lot, think about my kids. I reallt dont even know my son! That is so hard, I wish I knew how to fix that.            Driving is a huge issue on my mind as well.    Since I have no insurance, I go to a clinic. I see the counselor every three weeks for 30 mins and the Pdoc every three weeks for 15 mins. I answered an ad  on Facebook for clinical trials for depression, bipolar etc. but think I should ask my provider first. She is on vacation till after Christmas so wont see her until  Jan. It really sucks going through this alone.  Im so glad your there today.
Hi Lance,
I am sorry you are feeling hopeless right now.  We are here for you to listen and support you. 
Good for you for going out yesterday dispite how you have been feeling.  How was it when you went out? 
Have you talked to your doctor about how you have been feeling?
Have you started journalling? Journalling in your blog could be very helpful.  Do you think that could be something you would like to do?

I just cant seem to get back to where I was before my set back. Its going on for a long time. Still hard to get out of bed. I still feel like I wish I could just sleep for the rest of my life.

I have things started in my life as far as going back to work etc. but I still feel the hopeless stuff going on.

My anxiety is back up there, so I started walking when I do go somewhere. I went out yesterday fot the first time in a week! I was going everyday. I feel so tired, and just cant get back with it.
