    Life And Living...with Chronic Disease...

    Some would tell you I have been ill for most of my life...I say that is not true! I live with chronic disease, and when I tell anyone what that is, they either have a piteous look or ask me if I have trouble going to the bathroom...I have kidney disease...the clinical term would...

    Euthanize Me!

    Into More Pieces Than My Heart Was Made Of.

    Does it break my heart? Of course. Every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of. I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent. I never thought about things at all. Everything changed, and that distance wedged itself between me and my happiness. It...

    No Motivation Whatsoever

    I'm being treated for depression and ADHD, but either my meds don't work properly or I don't take them correctly, I cannot drag myself out of bed on the weekends. I suffer just to get up and make it to work, but that's about it. I have to force myself to do everything, including...

    Disappointment

    I go to sleep praying to never wake. I wake to disappointment. This life is so heavy. I know God is supposed to be there, but where?

    I Feel Like An Addict

     I know that being addicted to drugs and being addicted to mental inflictions has it's differences in effects but they have their similarities as well. Instead of trying to stay sober, you try to stay sane. Although both addictions cause a lot of damage physically...

    Depression

    I have very little energy and motivation because of my depression. I am classed as high functioning but people don't seem to understand just how much effort it takes to survive and get through the daily tasks of living. Even brushing my teeth can be a huge task.

    Lift the Load Please.

    That's always a good question. And a hard one for me. Sure I struggle. Money's tight. I never have what I want. But I always have what I  need. My emotions run wild at times after abuse and a divorce. Raising three children is a *****. But they always know I love...

    I think we all do at times. We would not be human with human emotions if we did not. Life is a struggle and it is up to us how we cope with it.
