Dinah,

I'm sorry it's been so difficult for you over the weekend and into this week. I wish I had magic to help you feel better.

Are you striving to have "enough" ego strength so that you can handle things on your own? I worry that now isn't a good time to place so much responsibility on yourself. Maybe part of building your ego strength involves accepting that you can only handle so much at any given time (like now) and then slowly building on that when the stressors are low. To use gg's metaphor, they always say, sunscreen is no good if you put it on right when you get to the beach. Apply at least 30 minutes before going into the sun :).

It's okay if you can't handle everything during this difficult time and that is exactly why you have your ego glue (T, Risperdal, Babble?) in place.

Take care of yourself and let others help, too.

All Done
