  1. I don't even remotely know the answer to this, but want you to know that I've read it and I hope that you get your work days.

    Hi lq, I'm popping by to send well-wishes and support. I'm glad you're fighting!
  3. My condolences, Baba. Have you checked out bereavement groups or therapy? Mourning has its own timeframe, maybe being involved with a group of others who are experiencing losses of their own would help you feel less alone through this process.
  4. Still hoping that one day you'll let us know that you're in one piece. 

  5. Where have you been?!

     

  6. I'm glad to hear that, Kona. Will anyone be following up with you? Have you spoken to pdoc about the AP?
  7. Kona, did you receive medical treatment for your OD? I'm sorry about the SH.
  8. I'm sorry you're feeling lonely and down right now. It helps me to remind myself that my mood will change; maybe that could help you, too. Hang in there, BD

      I know for a fact that's not true. Some chat folks (about 20) are in another chat now. Others abandoned chatting. If you're ever interested in finding new chat, send me a PM. 

      I want to boop your black and tan dog's nose. :)

      For what it's worth I signed up in that other chat. The anticipation builds...

  11. Sorry, I don't know where to put this post. I felt this link would be pertinent to parents who are MI because money is so frequently an issue for those of us who are ill. Here is a government link to a program which provides free Summer meals to kids and people under 18 when school is out of session. I hope it helps. https://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks
  12. Wanted to update this a little and share that I realized that I wasn't harming myself in other ways (eg: emotional eating) on the days I struggled the most. Emotionally ate two days in a row and did not SH (well, you know what I mean). The SH and urges to SH were crappy substitutes for other crappy coping mechanisms. The crappy coping mechanisms are so ingrained that I don't really hold out hope that I will regularly replace them with healthy behaviors, though I know that I'm the only one who can do that for myself. Will continue to try on a potential incident by incident basis and also try not to compound slip-ups by beating myself up. I guess I know the talk, but I struggle to make healthy choices. But really, the crappy coping mechanisms are so deeply rooted that they're a bit like meconium coping mechanisms
