I believe you're reading into my post, respectfully. I recently had a lot of free time for a few weeks, and for me, I found having too much free time depressing. A lot of people feel that way, and it's even compounded when someone has other stuff going on separate from that, as you point out is the case.
I probably should have mentioned that in context, I dunno, I was a bit tipsy with a nightcap at the time ; )
I do hope things work out for her, and don't want to be anything but encouraging. I was talking about my own experiences, not of her's.
And I don't know about you, but I don't think I post on psychobabble when I am having a full schedule. I have a few hours of downtime after work right now, for instance, but it's not too much... but still, I don't go on here when I'm super busy, so being here basically means you've got free time, or so I infer.
In other words, unless you think I'm being critical to myself, it's not a problem I myself am free of, so it's hard to accuse me of being critical of someone else for something I clearly am doing myself (having free time). Nothing wrong with that, it was just a point I was making. We're all supportive here, and when I posted that comment, I realized I didn't put it into context, so I added encouraging words afterwards.
Maybe people are posting to this site while simutaneously herding cattle, I don't know. = ) take care, novel
> What on earth? Look, maybe I am misunderstanding something here, novelagent, but your post back to b2 is hard for me to comprehend or put in any sort of context with b2's history at all. It makes me want to ask if you yourself are alright
> AFAIK, b2 is a wife and mother of young children who has bravely been working (full time? I think?) through months and years of these devastating, life-sucking, nasty symptoms of mental illness. She sees a pdoc and therapist regularly, tries to exercise, eat well, comes here for support, has worked out things with her employer when she was just too ill to function there...and those are only the few things **I** can recall from her posting here! There is undoubtedly more.
> I admire her perseverance and dedication to keep on going, through onslaughts of suicidal ideation, for the sake of those precious little ones, more than I can say properly in words. In my eyes she is one the the bravest, toughest people I have ever had the pleasure of getting to "know" here.
> What makes you think she stares at walls all the time or does not volunteer or work? Could you say how you concluded she spends most of her time online? Is that likely to be even feasible for a working wife/mother?
> I just had to say something. Maybe due to the limitations of this medium I've utterly misread this, and if so, please set me straight. But if not, maybe you could post something in a tone that is supportive, educational, and/or compassionate.
