I know I haven't been posting much at all but I have been in a really dark place for the past several weeks. With the help of my doctors and my meds, I am finally feeling better. I changed jobs and my old tyrant boss is relatively out of the picture, and even though with my new job I have a lot more travel, it has been a really positive change. And I learned something new about myself - that I need to work on better coping skills for dealing with people like my boss. No matter what I did, it was really hard to separate even his face from the faces of some people in my past who were abusive. And I finally ended up psychotic over it. Not sure how I'm going to work on it, just that I have to.

I have been trying to keep up here and I missed being so far away in my head from all of you. :hug:

you know I just try to stay in a small space so that there isn't so much noise. I get so scared about what is going on around me that I try to shut down the outside world but it's inside me too so that doesn't work. When you live where there are so many people it seems so big. And what is sad to me is that I used to love all the commotion of the city. In truth I try to think that this will end soon but I am beginning to doubt it. I am some better from the medicine but then I start sliding back. I went to my therapist last night but then found out that I had the time wrong. He saw me for a few minutes since he is a nice man but he had other patients. I had to take the train which is very loud and then had to go home so I started crying but it was my fault for messing up the time. Time is messed up for me right now period. But I am able to talk to my kids more which is better. And my husband. It was hurting to try to track what he was saying because he likes to tell long stories and I don't want to be rude to him but I can't hang on to his words that long. Sleep is better now so maybe things are better. Just wanted to try to describe what's going on and I'm sorry for such a long post.
