the nightmare continues...
Hi there, I have known and read this forum before, but it is so sad, so I haven't typed. Please, do you have a suggestion. Hoping to find a support group. Don't know where to begin. Have done the "shrink" thing. I am informed that I am depressed. Duh!
My story: 8 years ago the nightmare began.
1997--baby born, died after 13 minutes(cried for 4 years)
--church fell apart, support system gone
--fired from job in favor of MAN who knew nothing about position
--kids sent to school after being homeschooled since day one (dad's choice)
My 3 reasons for getting up everyday were gone.
That's not all, but those are the biggies.
I felt so helpless and hopeless. I have lost all trust in myself and people in general.
My sparkling personality has gone flat. People tell me I have an attitude. I feel hostile.
I have the opportunity to rejoin the human race, but I don't know if I can without having a meltdown. (facing menopause at this time, too) I am locked back in 1997. The people I know now have no idea about my background.
Is it too late to find a support group?? ...and where would I find one? SB
