I am still at the Crisis Centre ... well, right now I am home. I needed to get some warmer clothes.

I find the Centre helpful because whenever I feel really bad there is always someone to talk to. Plus I have my own worker who I meet with twice a day.

I am going to be staying a little longer even though you are only suppose to stay a week.

I started the dexedrine spansules and they are helping ... but depression looms in the background.

Thanks for all your support.

Thanks for the update Maxie. It's good that you are getting some support at the centre. What is your worker like?

It's good that they are flexible about length of time. Glad to hear you're feeling safe.

Home to pick up some stuff. I have a job interview tomorrow so I needed some different clothes. The Centre made me call them when I got home and I have to be back in two hours. They realise how suicidal I am.

Really not feeling good at all. :(

Maxime I'm glad the people at the centre recognize your distress level and care. You deserve good care.

Thanks for the update. ((hugs))

 

I'm home

I left the Centre tonight. As soon as I walked into my house I felt stress and pressure. You are only allowed to stay at the Centre for one week and they let me stay a little longer.

I had a job interview yesterday and I will find out on Friday if I got it. I would be starting on Monday. It's a job in my field so if I get it, I will do a little happy dance.

Of course I can call the Centre any time I want for support, or just have someone listen.

I am coming down with a cold and because of the MAOI there is nothing I can really take but Tylenol. It's so frustrating.

So yup, I am back.

Hi Ed, the job is at the Boys and Girls Club. I will be an animator for the computer program. Here is the interesting part ... it's for senoirs. I think it's the only Boys and Girls club with seniors! I would be responsible for creating the courses and marketing material. And it's only 15 minutes from where I live.

I really hope I get it. :)

Phillipa, at this point I would be happy about any job prospect ... but this one is in my field which is awesome. If I get the job I will tell you what it is.

I GOT THE JOB! I just found out about 40 minutes ago.

I will be working at the Boys and Girls Club. I will be an animator for their senoirs computer courses, marketing, and web maintenance. I start on Monday! I think it's the only B&G club that caters to seniors.

I am so excited! It's close to home so I won't spend a lot on gas. There is bus access from the top of our street in case I do need to take the bus.

Best of all, this is in my field!

I feel good. I still feel the aches and pains, but I they are easier to endure.

I wish I could have a party with all my PB friends!

What exciting news. Hopefully being busy will relieve some of the stress and depression and achiness you've been feeling. And to do something you're excited about doing rather than just some old job! Great news!

I don't have the money to party, or people to party with. Maybe I will celebrate with Murphy. :)

 

Go away bad thoughts, go AWAY!

Despite getting a job, I have to be honest and say that my thoughts are still very dark. Tonight is not a good night. I'm still thinking of suicide and wanting to kill myself. But how can that be? I should be thankful and relieved that I got that job.

I hate this so much. I wish I didn't have so many bad thoughts.

Maxime, pardon my bluntness in advance. We know some depressions are situational. And situation can affect mood positively or negatively. Then there is depression existing independent of circumstance.

I don't expect you to only have happy thoughts because of your new employment situation. Your chamge of fortune may relieve stress and frustration in many areas of your life, but
I wouldn't be a very good friend to expect your change of fortune to stop all those negative thoughts. I have an awful, awfully critical inner voice that talks to me in ways that are unimaginably cruel and hurtful. This voice even uses good things (like any success or pleasure) against me. It's very sad, really. And if I was strong enough to see the humor, kinda funny.
Like a highly dysfunctional parent in some black-humored sitcom.

So, no, I don't expect those thoughts to go away. I accept you the way you are (online), and I know that you are not those thoughts. Maybe, over time, you can find more ways to diminish them.

Getting out and doing something you do
well.... I hope you are blessed with good, appreciative coworkers. And that you
drink some of that appreciation in.

(Now if I could do that myself....)

And tell those thoughts you've got some friends at PB who would beg to differ... :)
