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.

Kevin, I am so sorry to learn of your finance's death. Do you have a support system? You need to be able to work through this. Do you see a therapist? I hope that you are. You are always going to miss her but it will get easier to bear.

Well, Nikki H, I'm an unemployed Human Resource professional. lol If I can tell you anything, is that by law, they have to consider and interview all the most qualified applicants for the position that applied during the time the position was posted, or else it would be considered discriminatory, and it would come to light during an Affirmative Action report. So, while they may have made up their minds about you, they still have to talk to the other people. :) You can: give them a call to see how the process is going, and when should you expect to hear from them; or send them a thank you card, thanking them for their time. :) Best of luck, keep the hope up, and keep on looking... We're in the same boat. lol

I dont think Im actually depressed right now but could use some words of encouragement so I dont go there. But by the end of the week that could be another story! Here is why....

I am my own worst enemy. I had an interview almost two weeks ago and should hear something this week. The phone interview was awesome. Nailed it! But the actual face to face I think I flopped. The job is with an old employer from 5 years ago. In fact its for my old job with my old manager. I should feel confident right? Not the case. I think it made me more nervous than I realized. Especially when I was told that 700+ applications were recieved and only 40 were interviewed. I was actually hoping to be told I had the job right there on the spot since I have more than the cridentials needed. I need to get out of this funk of doubting myself. I also should be sending out more resumes and not riding on the hopes of this one interview even if working there again would be awesome. I hate it when I have self doubt and low confidence when I know I am better than that.

I just need some encouragement right now.

Lizmari, Yeah, it does seem like, half the time, the medication & their side effects are worse than the thing they are trying to cure! Again, good for you for figuring out what works for you. I'm still working on that - for diabetes, for IBS and for depression.
Comment by The Diabetic Welfare Queen on January 15, 2010 at 6:41pm
Thanks Buffy, for the support! :) I was diagnosed with IBS when I was about 26, but they gave me so many pills to take each day, and then it still was the same way, so I just ditched them, too... lol I consume a lot of fiber from whatever carbs I eat, and II'm doing better... though not perfect.
