blondiebear 08-07-2008 06:14 AM

When my husband got home, i suggested that he might want to change his shirt. He said that the one he had one could take a tear soaking just fine.

I'm off to bed with my teddy bear Fred-fred and my husband Philip and hopefully Bozo cat will sleep at my feet.

Jetforce 08-07-2008 06:20 AM

Nope..i haven't figured out what to do about my new shrink yet hmm..

But at this stage....my urges ain't too bad....although probably get worse when i come back home...i'm out travelling for the past few days

effervescence 08-07-2008 07:44 AM

blondiebear 08-07-2008 03:25 PM

Explained the specific medical terms about what is going on. Can't say more.
*Sighs*
*notes that sleep shirts don't have pockets for bandannas*
*notes that there is a box of tissues in reach*

blondiebear 08-07-2008 05:54 PM

*sighs*
three diet pepsis, a bit of bread and butter and some brownie bites is not the breakfast of champions. it is the breakfast of sour stomach.

wildone 08-07-2008 10:01 PM

*hides her stockpile of meds from the passing Psych.*
I recon im about there

blondiebear 08-07-2008 11:19 PM

Home. Slightly productive. Trying to figure out what sewing technique i want to use on the placemats and serviettes. Still have to hem party-favor bags, 17 of the 20 of them.

wildone, please, don't don't don't.

*sighs and goes back to the sewing machine*

MammaMia 09-07-2008 12:45 AM

MammaMia 09-07-2008 01:02 AM

*snuggles Jess*

Let go in what way?

blondiebear 09-07-2008 01:24 AM

Do not even think about letting go!

We all have bad bosses, especially me! :laugh:

emotions okay for now, but no expectations.

i have so much work to do, trying to decide if I i pre-sew then pin and press, or what.

Casper_Fading 09-07-2008 01:30 AM

had enough of this ****! i want to quit evetyhign.

blondiebear 09-07-2008 02:32 AM

you want to quit even us?

Casper_Fading 09-07-2008 02:50 AM

not you guys... it's just so hard though susan :(

I'm sorry yo're going through a hard time too. have you heard anythign about your friend?

blondiebear 09-07-2008 03:10 AM

I talked to my friend. And to her caretaker, helper, interpreter between the hospital and the rest of us. Nothing is certain, it a matter of wait and see. Today it was better, tomorrow might be a serious challenge.

So, i'm stable. My husband is being a sweetie and picking up some groceries on the way home.

On the seams of store-bought clothes, you know how there are extra threads looped over the raw edges of the fabric? That is called serging. There are serging machines for home use too.

I'm going to go see if serging mud brown linen with boring brown thread will make the proscess of hemming all that stuff, serviettes and place mats, go any faster, especially saving time at the ironing board. 40 pieces, four sides each. There is a method to make it go fast though. Then if it works with the brown, i'll try it with the white.

Thanks for reading that boring bit. Of course I'll check on y'all here when I get up in the morning, my morning that is!

Jess, i know how hard it is. *gives you a comforting hug*

MammaMia 09-07-2008 03:20 AM

effervescence 09-07-2008 05:18 AM

i'm feeling empty.
numb.
suicidal, basically.

i wish i was invisible and then nobody would miss me and i wouldn't keep feeling guilty.

blondiebear 09-07-2008 06:47 AM

I was loading the dishes into the dishwasher tonight and found a spider. I wonder if the neighbors heard me shriek?

I'm working on the job, a bit at a time. One thing about working from home, it is always easy to get in some work at odd hours.

*accepts and returns hugs*

Jetforce 09-07-2008 08:22 AM

Finally back from my trip

YES!!! i'll miss u chloe!! i've missed u for the last 3 weeks..it wouldn't be the same without u in the psych ward :-(

*hugs you* Oh hunni, I'd miss you. I know so many of us in here would miss you.

zowie 09-07-2008 03:40 PM

Been discharged from the hospital. Went out last night but my meds made me feel sick, so I came home early.
I hate my meds. They give me the shakes and make alcohol have a bad effect on me.

farawayfairy 09-07-2008 03:57 PM

*hugs everyone* Just popping in to say hi. I've got an appointment with the psychiatrist in a couple of weeks so I think I'm going to ask for my meds to be upped.

MammaMia 09-07-2008 04:13 PM

*hugs you two*

Welcome home Zowie :D

lil-princess 09-07-2008 06:25 PM

*Sending you all loads of hugs*

~*forever_broken*~ 09-07-2008 07:20 PM

*runs in and hids in her corner under her blanket and sobs*

I. Just. Feel. ****. :crying:

I'm being melodramatic, I know, but it just all seems too much at the moment, everything is happening at once, all these appointments, all this humiliation, everything :crying:

Love you all.

Kuwairo 09-07-2008 07:47 PM

^ *hugs*



Low.

blondiebear 09-07-2008 08:28 PM

Zowie, you will get used to the meds and the side effects will not be so bad.

*hugs Zowie and farawayfairy and Ku and Ally*

My worries are at a low level right now, cause today's events haven't clicked into my emotions.

MammaMia 09-07-2008 08:50 PM

*hugs everyone*

Kuwairo 09-07-2008 09:18 PM

Detour. Derail 09-07-2008 10:29 PM

I should make more of an effort not to get involved with people...

Automatik Teknicolour 09-07-2008 10:34 PM

You haven't let anyone down
You couldn't, even if you tried hun
Not get involved? That about who / what I'm thinking it is?

CrazyHayley 09-07-2008 10:40 PM

wow I'm not online for 36hours and so much has happend in here. I never left the psych ward mentally, I feel safe here.....well kinda, but I wasn't trusting myself so went to stay at my best mates and had a good ol cry and tantrum and am now back, still crappy but better than some and so here to offer support to those who are struggling. Please don't give in yet, so many people here care about you and I haven't been given the opportunity to get to know you all yet. Please don't give up and let go, stay for just a while longer at least and see how things go. Maybe at some point i'll be able to give you a rainbow to help make all the rain seem worthwhile, but for now, even though I don't know you all, just remember that we are not **** ups. We are the good people, the reason we struggle is often because we care too much. Why should that be a bad quality that we punish? Lets all pull together and try and think at least one good thought about ourselves before we go to sleep tonight, even if its as simple as "I survived another hellish day" then I say good for you, cos I know how hard it must have been for you, but believe me it does get better, unfortunately it takes a lot of time.
....don't know where that came from, was feeling insighful for a change.....i'm gonna get brave now and attempt to snuggle people....
*sheepishly and tentitively snuggles those in ward*
