Thanks for your really honest post. I imagine that it's not easy to admit those things about yourself. I am glad you did. I am 38 years old and a mother of 2 girls. I have been married for 15 years. I am on Lexapro because of OCD that resulted in anxiety and depression thanks to my obsessive thoughts. I obsess about health problems. Mind you, I don't have any that I know of. I just take symptoms and turn them into serious diseases and obsess over them to the extreme. I am in therapy now for the first time in my life and am looking forward to learning more about why I do this to myself. Also wondering how to stop doing it. Lex has helped so much but it's still creeps back more often than I would like.
It sounds like you have had a pretty difficult time. I really hope and pray that this time will be the defining moment for you! You sound like a wonderful and caring woman and I am glad you found this board. I was upset too when I noticed that Dr. Bob was redirecting us. I have been coming here for 5 months on a daily basis. This place is where I can be me, faults and all. I feel excepted for who I am without judgements. It's really cool that totally different people with totally different backrounds and problems can come here and feel at home.
I guess I can really ramble on too. Sorry.
Bye for now. Mrs. C
