Debi, I'm sorry I didn't see your message until now. How are you doing today? (Or when it is today your time).

If you are in the midst of having a hard time, it might be hard to come up with some things that help. If the demons are still in charge, just try to hang on. It *will* pass.

If/when you are feeling a bit better, try to come up with a list of things that help. Suggestions: write in a journal, exercise, talk to a friend, tell yourself positive thoughts, help someone else, etc. It doesn't really matter what works for someone else - the main thing is what works for you!

When I am feeling overwhelmed, it helps me to tell myself, "it's not the end of the world". (in other words, it could be worse and I can handle this). My mother, however, *hates* that phrase. It just makes her feel worse. So I have to consciously remember not to say that to her, even though it helps me!

So, I hope you are doing better. Hang in there, and let us know what is happening (good & bad).

-- Buffy

Debi. Keep thinking "I love myself" and make time to do something you enjoy. These seem to work for me. AFA Lee

Charles, has anyone said anything mean to you? Or are you just being proactive?
Comment by Charles Boesel on February 3, 2010 at 1:53pm

Oh, Brea, I'm sorry that you are having such a rough time. Would it help to give us more details? Not so that we could "fix" you, or tell you that you are wrong, but so that we can sympathize with you and so you won't feel so alone. As a 47yo mother of 2 teen boys I might not be in the same life place as you right now, but maybe I was or maybe (almost certainly) someone else is.

Take care, Buffy

I just joined yesterday. I am type 1 since age 2, I am now 38 years old. My son now 3 was diagnosed at age 2 also. I AM SO ANGRY, GRIEVING, UPSET, .. If it weren't for my husband I would not be able to help my son. And now, I can't seem to be able to get out of this mental lock of despair and anger. I cry once a day and can't sleep during the night. Then at 6am cant bare get up to get going.
I am rambly..... upset...

I am seeing a therapist, but this past 2 weeks have been bad.
