life grinds on...

I have been pretty bad at posting lately...guess I just haven't had much to say. I have been going through some worse-than-usual depression and anxiety and have just sort of been holding everything together. My motivation for recovery is pretty low right now, and it seems like everything hurts, but I keep soldiering on.

I have been feeling a bit lonely and isolated lately. I love everyone here in the blogging community, and the support I have recieved here has been wonderful. But sometimes I just want to pick up the phone and talk to someone. So the other day I went to a NAMI meeting, which is something I have been meaning to do for a long time. It was ok I guess. It just felt really good to be around people who understand me and I can be myself around. I think I will go back.

I am glad Cammy and I Hate To Weight are posting again...I missed you guys!

i feel the same way -- isolated. good for you for going to a meeting. i need to do something like that.

soldiering on isn't easy at all. hope you are giving yourself a lot of credit for that. i hate those times when depression and anxiety are really high -- it's easy to feel defeated.

i'm feeling depressed and anxious too. trying to do good things for myself -- sleeping, eating healthy food, moving my body. blogging again helps. THANK YOU so much for your mention. it meant A LOT. it's nice to be back and to have support from friends like you.

take care, lisa

Do you ever skype? For some reason I'm more open to skype than I am the phone, which is weird! But I'm going to email you with my number and I want you to feel free calling me or texting me any time, OK?

Hey Lisa, I missed you like whoa while I was gone! I'm sorry that you're having a rough go of it right now. Major props for you for getting the courage to go to that NAMI meeting, stepping outside the box like that can take a lot of guts. Hang in there, you are incredible.
