    Not sure where to post this thread.

    Was doing the dishes and was thinking about my family/relatives that live in Louisiana where all the flooding happened. Just wish I was there to help them but I can't be there.

    Not sure if everything that had happened has me feeling down.

    Memories from the past when Hurricane Katrina also hit the area had flooded my mind. I was there when that event happened in south Mississippi.

    The destruction, the deaths, the clean up, the damage, and the rebuiling.

    I don't even know if any of why I been so down lately is connected.

    Maybe your memories of those horrible events are stronger than you realize? Maybe talking to a therapist would help you with those memories.

    Sometimes new situations can trigger emotions that we felt for something else in the past. The situations might or might not be similar, but the feelings that get stirred up are alike. The new situation kind of cracks the egg a bit and the feelings leak out. Moxman is right - talking to a therapist might help. *hug*

    I see my med dr and case manager (also therapist) tomorrow. I will talk to them about it as well. Hoping they can help.
