Have you ever felt...

Posted by Angela2 on September 30, 2004, at 19:17:22

Like you've lost control of your life? Like something happens that you were not expecting and you feel like sh** because of it and it's also your fault that it happened. God, I think I'm such a loser. I'll never get better. I'll never be happy.

Things will be better, for each of us...
Takes patience, and some days it seems our supply is short.

Hang on to your life.

I know how you feel. I've been dealing with it for most of my life. My latest survival strategy has been acceptance. I'm learning to accept that my condition is chronic and I will never be completely cured. This new attitude helps me get through the really rough patches as well as the daily problems. Instead of reaching for the stars and hoping for complete and permanent remission, I try to deal with it day to day and I'm thankful when I get some real and lasting (but who knows how long?) relief as I have since I started taking Parnate about a month ago, when I was a total basket case. I still have good and bad days and try to accept this as a fact of life for me.

I just have to forgive myself when that stuff happens, Angela. Sometimes it seems to happen on and on and on and on, sending me into a tailspin; but the *soonest* I can forgive myself for being just like everybody *else*! the better.

Like you DID have control of your life?

If so, what did it feel like?

Mmmmm, control? Something I lost such a long time ago. (((Angela))) I think you spoke for all of us as well as yourself. I am trying to turn "It's not my fault" into my personal mantra.
