Missed you, Courtney! Hope you get well soon. <3
Hey Courtney x
Thanks Manda. :D I missed you too. I've been so busy. Staying in bed today. Thankfully my son is with his aunt and grandma. :)
Holler Binky ;)
English is full of things like that... The, a, is, be, if... I think they're quite hard to explain, especially to a 2 month old baby lol. I'm sure he enjoys the sound of it but most of all his mama's voice and attention :-)
Lol Binky :D You're probably right.
So glad to see so much green!
Yeah I should have gotten back on zoloft a long time ago :D
I'm so glad you finally did. What a turn around you've done!!
It helps so much, even on 50 mg. I'm lucky cause it gives me no side effects. Everyone in my neighborhood noticed a difference. I have two female friends now too. :D
I'm happy this dip didn't last a long time. Usually I'd wait years before getting help O.O
I'm proud of you for taking the step! That's the hardest part. And glad you've made friends too. They are so important, especially in times of stress.
Yes, I think I need more friends though. People are so busy with their lives and I am too, but at this point in life, I wish I could have a friend every day. lol
I understand that. I have ZERO friends & I know that's unhealthy, but it feels safe to me.
It is safe. I think finding friends is hard. One has to assess what type of person they are, and if they are untrustworthy in certain ways, then, well, some may call that a deal-breaker. But then we have no friends. Everyone is messed in some way. I
mean who am I to throw stones in my glass house, you know? But if a potential friend isn't good with money or keeping their promises, then don't give them money or ask them to keep any promises. If a person is loud and just talks about everything all
the time, probably don't tell them anything too deeply personal, like the kind of thing you don't want getting out. I mean, everyone has their misgivings. We control what situations we put ourselves in and who we trust in particular ways. It doesn't
make anyone a bad person for having faults. I think the key to making new friends as an adult is walking a balance between caution and hospitality, so they always know you are in control of the way things work around you. That's what I try to do. My
friends definitely weren't hand-picked, but they'll do for now. :)
You're right about all of that, but my only problem is I have no way to make friends. We live out in the woods with distant neighbors & daughters not involved much in school. The local library has book clubs & adult coloring which I've...
...considered, but I'd be SO nervous!
Oh you should do it. Coloring sounds relaxing. I've thought of joining a book club too, or a writers group. It seems nervous at first but I bet you, as soon as you get there, they will be very welcoming.
I might just join a coloring group or book club. It'll take A LOT of guts, but maybe I can do it.
I wish I was drunk & high!
Lol yeah we didn't expect it but she offered me and my husband to smoke :p
I don't like to smoke with anyone other than BF because I get too paranoid. At that last party I went to though, I had so many margaritas & Klonopin that I went out with 'the guys' & smoked right before we left. I must've been wasted! No way to get..
...it where I live. =( Best medicine around too.
Yeah I get so in my head, then I don't know if what I'm thinking is out loud or not! So I usually try not to socialize if I'm high, at least until I know the person I'm talking to is open-minded.
Yeah for sure. That sounds like a fun night, haha. ^_^
Maybe a lasting friend this time?
*fingers crossed* for you, Courtney. You need a good friend now more than ever with everything going on!
You are the best, Courtney!
Oh Manda <3 I wish we could meet in person. We'd be besties lol
I wish we could too, Courtney! I could use a real life best friend! <3
Maybe you can add me on fb. If you email me, I'll send you my name so you can look me up. My email is email@example.com
Thanks, Courtney! I'll email you next time I'm at my desk. I hate using my phone for email for some reason. I've been binging on TV since my surgery & have only been at my desk once. It hurts to sit like that. But I'll be in touch!
