I understand about being afraid to ask for help, but I'm getting better at it over the years. I didn't need much help after my surgery, but I did ask for and receive some, especially the first week. And guess what? People were glad to help out. I hope you will have a chance to find out for yourself.

I work for a non-profit agency that serves people with developmental disabilities. It is rewarding work, but I'm not crazy about the current atmosphere, so I'm actually job searching. The first week back went okay for a couple of days, but by the end of the week I was worn out and stressed out. My body hurt in ways it has not since the first few days after my surgery in April. More evidence that the environment is not good for me.

Have you met your new T yet? How are your sessions going? Your T's retirement is some time this month, right? I'm thinking about you. Keep me posted on how you're doing.

> Hi! Yes, my T is forgetful. That is one thing I have not liked about her. She is very busy. She is married to a doctor who is not internationally "famous" in that respect or anything but is well known in his field and unlike me who doesn't do a whole heck of alot, she is very, very busy outside of her work.
> I have not had any friends helping me because I am too afraid to ask for help for fear people won't like me. This has been a huge learning experience. I have taken upon myself to try to do everything without help and it has caused me so much stress I have had a mini nervous breakdown over it, I swear.
> Glad you are going back to work. Do you feel like saying what kind of work? I have a graduate degree but right now would do anything. Including minimum wage jobs. I have no confidence to look for anything that I am qualified for. I used to be pretty but since hitting my 50's, even my 40's my appearance started to change alot. I put on a ton of weight, hair started to thin out. The menopause thing and pre-menopause. I just don't look or feel sexy anymore and I never felt that way prior to this weight gain and thinning of hair.
> I wish I had a boyfriend, a relationship but haven't dated in years.
> Be well,
