When you are sick of pills, pain and appointments, and tired of crying for lost and friends, and one very ill, what do u do?

Continue to hold on to HOPE.  I go through periodic periods of extreme mourning and grief and know my own thoughts and feelings make it worse.  I usually come here in those dark moments and allow others to shine a little lightness on my darkness.  I think most of have been through what you're experiencing and deal with it differently.

I ultimately rearrive at the conclusion that what ever I'm dealing with at the time, it is still better than not being here to deal with them. 

Take care and tell us a little more what's going on with you.

Being honest is not wronging others, continuing the dishonesty is.

Hope is important and  absence off it in any form is a pretty good pointer towards depression. In the Past I have used one to one therapy, and Support groups and they have really helped. As Mr.Wolf said tell us somemore so we can understand your situation better

Life, I know your intentions are the best. However this particular forum is for longterm survivors specifically and is off limits to you. Please read the opening thread. You do not fit the definition of that category.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Hi Tempe,

Believe me, I lost my second partner 4 yrs ago, so I feel your pain. Most of the time I don't let myself cry. I've been in therapy for the last 4 yrs, and I'm getting over the loss. But I've had to learn to cry when appropriate and to acknowledge my feelings.

So my advice to you is to accept that you feel however you feel, and why you feel that way. Once you do, you can work on what might make you feel better. For me, it's remembering all the people I used to know, who aren't with me now. I believe I owe it to them to keep going. To use what time I have here on Earth to make things better.

Currently that means helping the roommate I live with. He's 84 and lost his partner of 35 yrs several years ago. He's just found out he has diabetes, which I also have, and I'm helping him learn to count his food in the right way.

My point is that there are always people who have it worse than we do. If you find yourself helping someone, it does good things for them and for your karma and also your mood.

Post something again soon to let us know how you are doing.
I distrust morning people. I suspect they setup the rules of life while the rest of us slept.
