It's now 8:45pm I get another text saying shes picking up a friend at the train station at 9:15pm then coming over! I can't believe the freakin nerve of some people.........
I would have told her to come by tomorrow.

Answer the door, but don't open it, just ask her to hold on a second then make her wait for 5 or 10 minutes outside. Then invite her in, but make her wait by the door for a few more minutes, LOL.

Yeah! Answer the door and then tell her she'll have to wait until you finish the laundry and the dishes.

I have so many things I want to say and that I need to say but nothing wants to come out. I went a while without reading these posts--not sure why. It was just like it was too much to take in at the time. Then I started reading them, and everyone was going through so many horrible things, so many that I wouldn't be able to respond to each need or broken heart, and I felt bad about that. I know I shouldn't worry about it--I do pray for all of your needs--but when I start to respond lately, I feel as if I just don't have the right words to say, so I just haven't been saying anything.

I have been pretty down on myself lately--just not saying anything to anyone. I don't know if it is depression or adult ADD (I fit just about all the symptoms I have read about adult ADD, but possibly have depression on top of it?). I don't feel depressed at all, but one of the symptoms of depression is lack of motivation. The thing is, I know what needs to be done, and I intend to do it, but then I end up sitting in front of the stupid computer all day. I get all excited about all that I have planned, then I waste my time, and then I end up mentally beating myself up because of how worthless I was that day. I am doing better, and I know I will continue to do even better, but what I have felt like all this week is that I am just wasting most of my time. I am back on a horrible sleep schedule (to bed between 5:00 and 6:00 in the morning, up around 11:00 to noon) which definitely doesn't help. When James starts work it will be easier to establish a better sleep schedule, but I would like to do it sooner. Unfortunately he has gotten just about as bad when he is here. He only has one week of school left, and it would be very easy for both of us to end up with this horrible sleep schedule. I'm going to work on it this coming week. James actually sleeps a lot in his chair, so he gets more sleep than I do, but hopefully we will both start getting more regular sleep. We are supposed to both go to the doctor when he is out of school. I had mentioned that I thought I might be having problems with depression, but I don't think she realized I was really concerned about it (I was kind of unsure of it all and it probably didn't really sound like I was concerned), but I will bring it up again on this next visit.

I am so sorry to have rambled on like this (I hope at least some of it made sense!). All I really wanted to do was tell you that I have been reading these posts, even if I don't always respond, and that I am concerned for all of your needs and do pray for you.

Barbara

You describe a lot of what I do, which for me is the result of depression. Staying up late, sleeping in, no motivation to do things. I would definitely talk with your Dr. on a serious level about the possibility of depression. Many different things can cause it, not just mental illness.
I get the same way sometimes here, I can't respond to posts or back off for awhile, then I respond to tons of them in one day. I have wide mood swings, and it shows when I go back and look at my activity. Sometimes it is hard to understand, and I can be pretty hard on myself. I look back and think "why was I so lazy I didn't get anything done!". Sometimes DW does the same thing, it is hard for her to understand as well, and sometimes her frustration leads her to ask why I am so lazy, or to lash out at me, call me names or question my worth. All of this can be signs of depression, including how you interact with others and how they interact with you.
I would definitely talk with your Dr. about depression, they should have a questionnaire for you to fill out then you can go from there. If you and your doctor decide on meds, take the time to learn about them. Some people only need one, some are on 'cocktails' of meds (I am on 3), and there are several 'families' of meds.
I will pray for you that it is something temporary and you come out of it soon and return to your normal self! After all, as I said there are more causes than just mental illness. There is also stress for one, and many other factors that when taken care of or removed from your environment eliminate the depression.
