Beanie that sounds way too familiar in a lot of aspects. I have not had much luck with a therapist. Almost every thing was somehow connected to my moms death to her and I just found it a waste of money and time. I know some people have good luck. But I didn't.

I just do what I kept knowing how to do- survive and wait for improvement. :/. Improvement has come but much much slower than I would like. My life is nowhere near what I imagined a few years ago.

Wish you were closer.

I'm sorry, Beanie. I understand your reluctance to see a therapist. It's scary, it's expensive, and it's frustrating. Do you have a church? The pastors there are generally trained to provide counseling, and it should be free.

I was hoping to get a new job and better benefits. I don't have dental insurance so I haven't been to the dentist for almost a year... and with my dental history I really shouldn't NOT go to the dentist. It's tough because if I don't go things can compound to become a more major issue and then I'll REALLY have a financial problem, but at the same time I feel like I can't go because I can't afford that.


I saw a therapist for a while when I was in high school and it was not a pleasant experience. My aunt is also a therapist and I don't enjoy trying to talk to her. I mean, I'm not a PhD but I do have my degree is psychology. And I obviously believe in the power of a good therapist in many situations. I'm just not positive it will help me... especially if the whole time I'm worrying about how I'm supposed to pay for this to begin with...


I just feel like crying all the **** time lately. I don't think I need meds or anything, I think stuff just needs to not be so bad. Now that I think about it, it feels like when I was on NuvaRing and was seriously depressed and getting more and more depressed as time went on. Except there is no marching to the bathroom and yanking out the birth control that's making me depressed. There is no waking up the next day feeling better already. There is nothing I can remove from my body that will make me feel better and better the longer it's gone.

So there it is. I guess I'm legit depressed. That would explain why my friends are calling me on my BS when they ask how I am and I hitch up a fake smile and tell them "fine." Because I'm not.

What you describe is not a way to be everyday. This is when you need some meds to get over that hump. That may be all you need. Some counselors are awesome!!! Wish you were here and I could direct you to some great ones. Some just suck. Some people to to three or four before finding one to stay with.

Just make an appointment with a dr that has counselors in his office. He may just send you to them. But here private drs are like a three to four month wait so just get one now. I talk to people all day who have let it get to far and getting help earlier really does make a huge differance.

Thinking of you and really hoping you get in somewhere. You'll look back and wonder why you didn't sooner.

My oven and stove have been going steady since about 1pm today. between baking flourless PB cookies, blanching all the veggies from the garden for freezing and then making dinner.... it's a BILLION degrees in my house and the AC is on. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!!!!

I'm very sad that we live so far away from each other now.. I think we could have been good friends. Think of the gorgeous mountain rides we could have had!

You need to get a horse within the next 5-6 years. Josh was talking about making a trip out west at least every two years for about two weeks of CO, WY, and Montana riding once we get settled. We can definitely make a stop near Denver.
Lol two failed relationships I had were with "city slickers" lol, I am a hard working county girl & to a lot of city boys, that's sexy (I guess ) but it doesn't stay that way for long when they start doing their city boy ****. Lol

The rest of our town basically burned down today. Couple years ago our post office and a great restaurant burned down and they never rebuilt. That left two antique stores and the one hundred fifty year old one burned last night. Very depressing to drive through town now.

My bunny, Daphne, had a stroke last night and another one today. She isn't coming out of this one. We adopted her 8 years ago when she was 4.5. Depending on how long she was at the shelter, she might be 13 now, her gotcha day is September first. She is ANCIENT for a bunny, but, sadness.

I just... enough. Dog crapped IN my hand at work today, at a shop I'm totally unfamiliar with that I drove like 40 minutes to get to to cover another groomer. Slipped in the bathing room and landed smack on my arse, then get home and find Winnie has smashed her fingers pretty badly somehow and THEN my inlaws pull up unexpected, unannounced and unwanted. Had plans. They want to have a big serious talk... I'm so tired of going round and round and round over and over again!!! FML!!!

Their big serious talk is going to talk like 5 minutes. "We're going to **** you off a whole bunch and make you want to punch us in the throats." And then you're going to come over here anyway and I will have a drink ready for you.
