Dear, hanging on:
First of all, God bless you, life can certainly appear to be anything but a bowl of cherries most of the time, can't it?
Second, yes, Lexapro really will help you get through life. I promise. At eight days, you're still taking baby steps as far as Lexapro being able to help you. Trust that with each day, Lexapro is settling itself deeper within your system in order to do what it's meant to do ... help you through life.

Meanwhile, there are things you can do to help yourself. First of all, if you're a religious or spiritual person, or even if you're not, don't forget to say a prayer every morning that you live. This is imperative for being able to "get through life on earth" ... trust me. Just ask God to help you though the next few hours, don't worry about tomorrow, it'll be taken care of in time.

That's pretty close to the second thing you need to do, and that's live life one-second at a time. Everyone tells us to take things "a day at a time" .. well, a day is too much to take at one time. Don't think any further than the moment that you're now living in. Think about how you feel "now" .. but know that you are going to feel better no matter how bad you may feel at any given moment.

I honestly believe that being able to do this can help us more that just about anything else we can do, other than prayer. Try not to think about how you're going to handle what happens tomorrow, or next week or month, just the present moment.

I'm not saying it's easy to live one moment at a time, it takes a lot of practice. But if you try it, and succeed, you'll be surprised at what a load it takes off of you, and how good you feel about life.


Our lives are made up of a millions different moments.

Some moments are spent searching for love, searching for peace and harmony, and laughing with loved ones. Other moments are spent simply surviving life.

But that life, with all it's joys and sorrows, is meant to be lived one moment at a time. It is with this knowledge that we discover a most wonderful truth ...
that Life was actually meant to be enjoyed.

Whether we live in a forty-room mansion, surrounded by servants and wealth, or find it a struggle to manage the rent month to month, we have it within our power to be fully satisfied and live a life full of true meaning.

Living one moment at a time we have that ability, through cherishing each moment and rejoicing in each smile, each dream.
Bringing tender awareness, forgiving awareness, merciful awareness to each moment. We can experience each day anew, and with this fresh start we have what it takes to make all our dreams come true.

Each moment is new, and living one moment at a time enables us to truly enjoy our life and live it to the fullest.

Take care, BobYuma
