crash after 3 good days

Posted by judy1 on June 18, 2002, at 20:37:21

I spent 2 days at a seminar- mostly 'present', then a driving test yesterday (to keep my license after a seizure). Today was therapy day and I crashed- didn't make it (my therapist was understanding) and basically lost the entire day- looked at the clock and it was 9 hours later. I'm venting I think, just feel discouraged. Sometimes it's worse when you do well and fail, then failing all along. A pessimist judy.

I'm sorry you're feeling so badly about everything, Judy. Two steps forward, one back? Still, you're moving ahead. Don't be discouraged, I sure know what it's like.

Today, I am struggling with the knowledge, or the feeling (?) that I've never been able to commit to anything in my life. It's like: I ultimately don't care about anything, don't want to do anything for any length of time because my world-view is so hopeless. So how could anything be worth commiting to? Relationships, jobs, etc. I am easily complacent. Makes lovers and bosses nutty. Makes ME nutty...

Anyway, this is a roundabout way of saying I'm struggling, too, not in the same way as you are, but I get it. Chin up, check in again if you need to.

yours,

Wendy

 

I hope you're feeling better. (nm) judy1

Thank you for the kind words. I think I'm going to withdraw for a while. Take care, judy

Judy,

I feel for you. But I think this board is a good life-line for you, especially Terra, who knows so much about what you're experiencing...

Perhaps if you write, you'll feel better, or that is my hope. I hate to see you go, but of course, if that's what you need/want to do, I respect that...

with much affection,

Wendy

 

Thank you so much wendy b.

What a sweet post! Actually I'm doing MUCH better, I was overwhelmed as we all get sometimes- and got by with a little help from my shrink:-). Again thank you- I really appreciate the support I get here. Take care, Judy
