Things like this, I just can't cope. I don't care anymore. Life is so hard the older you get. I know this is very small and trivial compared to what everyone else is going through, but my head lives in a glass house. One small crack and I break into pieces. I hate it, hate it, hate it.
Its still your feelings, and your life, and you have a right to feel, however you want.

I hear ya.

Alot of people are going through upheavals these days, a normal person would empathize.

One good thing is to keep off the news and reality trash, better way to make yourself feel better.jmo. When you are sick of people, the last thing you need to do is watch a bunch of ranting idiots on tv.

I'm always amazed at how differently people with mental health problems (long term depression, ptsd, bp, ocd) are treated compared to people with other long term health problems. I can't imagine a pollyana type speech to my dad for instance, who was on dialysis for 13 years. People are more understanding of these types of things being very serious and while they might still vanish as friends, there isn't the condescending, I know all about what you feel and what its like to have what you have, so I can spout useless advice at will bit. You just don't routinely see that with serious long term purely physical conditions like ya do with mental health related problems.

Anyone else just stopped caring?

Yeah, I have. I had this really long post typed out but I just deleted it. Let's just say that I feel everyone's pain and then some, I'll come back when I'm not feeling so suicidal.

Damn, Ilene. Fifty-five thousand rep points and you're feeling suicidal?

You're either doing one helluva job managing your depression or you're the fastest typist in the universe.

Seriously? You are judging someone's mental status from how many rep points they have? If rep points made people feel better, damn, easier for all right?

I'm so sorry.

Losing a job is SO STRESSFUL. OMG. You can't sleep, you worry non-stop, you can't eat or eat too much, you're a bundle of nerves. I got laid off, and omg I couldn't sleep.

Now, looking back at that time, I realize why I was so stressed out. You just don't know HOW you are going to make it. You're not psychic and don't realize that chances are you will find a way. Chances are, you will find another job. Chances are you will be okay. Chances are you will look back and say, "PHEW! Boy, was I stressed out of my MIND!"

I don't want to go back to the horrible way I felt when I got laid off (for making too much money - they wanted to keep the ones that made less). However, chances are pretty good you will make it. Too bad we can't predict the future, or we wouldn't be so stressed out!

I know what you're saying, however, I think what he was trying to say was that she has a great way of expressing herself that people love, and that she has good qualities.

In other words, I'm not a lying, cheating, annuity pushing (or some other terrible product) extrovert. Hence, permanent unemployment for me because nobody wants analysts who know what the f they're doing, only salespeople. So in my case, when the savings is gone, well, why continue to struggle and be homeless. No thanks. I'll just end it. Yep, I don'tt care anymore. I'll start the car in the garage with the door closed and go to sleep, permanently. No family anyway, so nobody will miss me.

never heard of that book, but I will look into it since I love to read....and be 'careful' with that, I read that they no longer make those car fumes strong enough for a lasting impact on the body, instead could just end up brain dead
