    Wow what a ride… I have not posted in a while so time to fill in the blanks. It’s November 27th. I have been out of the hospital for almost 2 months and on my new meds for about the same. I have been working so hard to get things sorted out with my friends, family everybody in my life. I start treatment with my new counselor in the beginning of December. I am so excited to get things going again.

    I was diagnosed with sever depression when I was 11 years old. It has stuck with me all the way through my life. About 6 years ago I developed horrible anxiety attacks and bad social phobias. I was determined never to give up. I attempted suicide many times in the last 10 or so years but I always put my foot down and just tried to work harder. I am not 100% today and I don’t ever expect to be. I have been to hell and back. Shook the devils hand and kissed his cheek.

    No matter what comes my way, I will face it head on. I am a fighter and I always will be. There is just too much beauty to quit, to many people to see, and places to go. I will see my ex one day but I am going to take my time to get there. I never ever in my wildest dreams thought I would be able to come out of this. I had written my family goodbye letters in case I didn’t make it through. But here I am. It wasn’t easy, probably the hardest most stressful unimaginable pain I had to go through to get here. It is so worth it.

    My only wish would be that nobody ever has to go through this. I understand that that is really never going to happen, but I want to make myself available to those who want to stick it out. For the fighters who won’t give up! I am here.

    Thank you so much for this forum! It has gotten me through so much! And for those people who helped me make it to where I am! wheresmysheep (Emma), Arcturus (B), Praedor (Chris), Rach!, Veeeeeeevz!, Sarahg, Harry, Ron, Nathan, Narc (Tyler), Murko!, Joe!

    Hugs and Kisses
