Doing something for others (other than your regular family duties) can be helpful in helping you feel a bit better. Maybe something simple, like taking an elderly neighbour's dog for a walk a couple evenings a week or something. Ideally something that puts you into contact with others, but you can ease...

Maybe you could post in your local finding your tribe forum and set up a playdate. It does sound like getting out of the house would be the best thing for you, what about just going to the park or a playground? I'm sorry I don't know much about social anxiety so I don't know if that's...
Well had my intake appointment, finally, after a month or so of waiting. It was just a bunch of questions and me answering in between my crying and trying to control my daughter. I couldn't get an appointment with the actual psychiatrist until the beginning of September but I do have two counseling sessions set up starting end of July. Thank you everyone for your advice and kind words. I keep thinking "this is just a bad day", but I'm finding that I'm thinking that...

Maybe she could help you make some calls. Hi, I'm hanging in there. I have an appointment scheduled (finally) for the end of June, which seems ages away but I feel a tiny bit better knowing it's there. My husband and I took a little trip over the weekend with our daughter and I felt...
I'm trying so hard to get help, but it's like it's not meant to be or something. I've gotten to the point where I just can't live like this anymore. It's not fair to my children, my husband, or myself. It's going to be a very long life if I don't get better. I've been depressed for years--I was treated a few years ago towards the end of my first marriage but I had to stop seeing my doctor and stop the medication because I lost my insurance. And for a short time I thought I...
Thank you everyone for your support . I did go to church on Easter and I'm very happy I did. My oldest daughter (14) went with me, and I think she may have enjoyed it also (after the "what am I going to wear?! drama). I wasn't made to feel uncomfortable and after 8 years in Catholic school--well, you never forget how to ride a bike . I plan on going back this Sunday, I just felt really good afterwards and there's no reason for me to not go. Thanks again!
I don't know where to start...a bit about myself...I went to Catholic school for 1st-8th grade. My mother has always said that if the public schools were better I would have went to PS instead, and she really doesn't feel that it did me any good . After my sister and I graduated, she started only going to church occasionally, and now I don't even think she goes apparently because of her work schedule and because our church now only offers Spanish mass So what I'm saying,...
Here's my story: I've been divorced for four years now, and I've been in a committed relationship for 3 1/2 years now with a new love : After my divorce, I never went back to using my maiden name. Mostly because it's a pretty awful last name, but also for my children's sake. My new partner and I do have plans on marrying, and we share a daughter, but because of life circumstances (unemployment and generally being too broke to even have a simple ceremony/party/rings), we...
