    G'day, everyone! :)

    I woke up fairly close to target time, so am happy about that. Have fed Star and had my coffee. I've even started the chores/errands on today's To Do List. Needed to as volunteering at Bingo today is also on the list. Will try to get a few other things done before Bingo, or they get pushed to this evening, after Bingo.

    Jimk, sounds like quitting the cigs is a struggle for you, and I wish you well with it. Hope it eases. Enjoy your car game and the history show today.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful Friday and a great start to November! :cheer2:

    Good morning all.

    With the flip of the calendar page this morning, this episode of depression has lasted ten months. I wish I could see an end in sight, but I just can't. At least not an end that is a good one for me and those who love me. I'm so tired of fighting this. This week has been another one that has been too close to the edge. I haven't gotten to the stage of making a final decision to end things, but I've had a lot of suicidal thoughts and a crisis that was bad enough that my T called me after reading between the lines of a text conversation. We wound up talking almost certainly half hour. Talking with him usually helps me feel a lot better but after we talked, I still felt really rough. My husband and I have an appointment with him tomorrow afternoon. I'm not at all looking forward to it. I've been so withdrawn this week and just am so tired of fighting this. I want to give up the struggle. It isn't that I want to die, it's just that I'm tired of fighting it all the damn time and feeling like I'm not getting any better. For now, I look at the sleeping face of my baby and my eldest's twirling around the living room and my middle daughter's constant cartwheels and forward rolls and I feel my husband's arms around me and the fierce hugs lavished on me by little arms and I choose to live. The problem is that I know what my brain is capable of doing and how close it can take me to the edge and the knowledge makes me wonder how long I will be able to look at them and stay. Something has to change in a big way or I will lose this fight.

    So that's where I am now. Wish I had better to say this morning. For now, baby is napping and I'm going to do likewise.

    New pjs for hospital, even though they say nighties...I am NOT a nightie person. :p
    Spent the afternoon leaving everything to Mole and strict instructions on what I expect for the animals, including the name and address of a lady with an aviary who is willing to take the feathered fiends.
    Having got the scary stuff out the way, feet up, glass of wine and no more fretting.

    hello coffee forums,

    you know Terry I briefly entertained the idea of purchasing one of those full length night shirts that extend all the way to the floor that used to be popular i don't know last century sometime or the century before that. I wonder if you can still get them anywhere. They seem like they would be comfortable.

    Good morning! :)

    Woke up, I dislike that feeling LOL! Star has been fed, I've had my coffee (first one) and I still feel tired. Would love to go back to bed, but that doesn't usually help me. I have a few small things to do today, and then I will visit Dad (if not today, then tomorrow). Be good to get to the library today, as well. On my last book and need a new supply. Eeek. I'm a bookworm.

    Jimk, good luck with the smokeless day and I hope you get to see the last of the history show! Enjoy!

    Wishing everyone a sensational Saturday! :arms:

    hi coffee forums,

    Another large batch of snow is in process of falling here today. Temperature is hovering right around freezing point so the roads were still sufficiently grippy. No ice. I shall be staying inside warm apartment for the remainder of the day,. Hey new emoticons. :giraffe:

    Morning all,

    Jim, send Zoomies a lot of birthday wishes from me! I hope you both have a good day celebrating!

    Good morning! :)

    I slept fairly well, but had dreams about a big cat biting my face...Aha! It was a little kitty kissing me. And then biting my face! Star wanted her breakfast. We're both happy now - she's had food, I've had coffee. Today is a slow day for me. I have to pass the time until my dental appointment in the late afternoon: Part II of the root canal. Oh yay! Will be glad when it's over! Not much else on my plate today.

    Jimk, wishing you well with giving up the Marlboros! You could replace them with the old "Popeye" ones - candy (the old packages called them candy cigarettes, but now they're called candy sticks).

    Butterfly, I hope your aches and pains go away. Glad you got yourself all checked out and are up to date on tests and shots!

    I hope everyone has a great day! :arms:

    Good morning Jim and everybody else. Just having a couple beers and playing Mario on the Wii before bed. Trying to adjust to the stress of the new location for my job is kinda difficult. Surprising how different 2 stores can be.
