Well, I'm still here, checking the boards every few days, though there's not much posting. I'm glad you're out of the psych ward. I have been there far too many times, but not in 3 years now (fingers crossed). As I had written a while back, I left my husband 4 years ago and have done fairly well. But lately I've been feeling freaked out being alone in the apartment. I'm not sure what to do about this. I wake up with this feeling of dread every day. I try to get out as much as possible, but we had a few major storms in the last couple of weeks which kept me indoors.

I felt so unsettled this morning, that I called my therapist (who I have been checking in with only 3-4 times a year) for an appointment. I'm seeing her tomorrow. Hope she can offer some advice. She's big on DBT, which emphasizes practical solutions. I don't know Maybe meditation, though I'm very bad at that.

> If anybody is watching, hello from me. I still live on my own in Spokane, WA with my gorgeous and quite mad cat Amelie. Im seeing a guy who isnt an alcoholic, a rarity for me. Wish me luck! Im still stumbling along in my depression and anxiety... they wax and wane. I take advantage of the better days and curse the worse of them. Im developing a relationship with my Alexa Dot. She has scant musical knowledge. How weird is that, Alexandra, eh? Funny name.
> I ran away from the mental health pages on FB. I found that multiple pages had the same cliques of members who pretty much decided who was allowed to post, no matter the requirements. I felt so judged, what a surprise, and so withdrew rather than have a foam noodle fight in a wading pool with a couple of 4 year olds. So to speak. Moderation, HA! what a lovely idea. What an impossible ideal.
> I hope Babble keeps plugging along. I have had med changes since my time spent in the psych unit in October, Ill post on the main board for that.
> I love you Babblers!
