I think he was afraid he would forget it, Sins! We'd just been talking about it the night before. He says he thought it was two days ago and that's why he brought me flowers. He did seem genuinely surprised at my surprise since he does usually bring me some small plant, but never a dozen red roses! I guess thirty years counts for something!:-) He is also taking tomorrow off, so we'll have a three day weekend. THAT is a real treat as he never takes a day off!

I am doing so much better, my friends. Thank you, so much. The therapist doesn't need to see me for two weeks, when I will be totally OFF the zoloft which really elates me. As soon as we decided I would go off of it my state of mind was much better...relieved and eager to do so. The side effects: restless legs, low grade headache for much of each day/night, upset GI necessitating OTC remedy on a daily basis also causing lack of sleep, jerkiness, and sleepiness which has kept me from driving at all until today when Morgan and I went a short distance and back with no problem.

I've had my second biofeedback session. It is all based on breathing..when we get my breathing slowed down, on a very gradual basis, that will turn off the stimulation to the various nervous systems which cause anxiety, depression, and/or panic, plus muscle tension. It seems silly at first; I've had so many years of meditation with long, deep breaths..now I am learning to slow even that down and how to apply it a different way. I think it is going to do much more than just keep me off of drugs for those conditions.

I have been doing so much more than before; just feeling much more positive and happy. I will see the therapist and biofeedback gal in two weeks. Still need to work on mental motivation, but that is what the therapist and I are working on.

Thank you all, very, very much!

Mid-high drama/trauma in my family concerning our son, Colin, has caused me a bit more anxiety than I have felt in a long time. I haven't had any zoloft since last Friday and have been doing really well. Still take a xanax at night, but getting short amounts of good, solid sleep. (I also have biofeedback and therapist appts on Thursday.)

Now, in the past couple of days, I have found it hard to focus and to empty my mind. I feel he will be okay, but he is going through hard changes, having to move out of the home he shared with what he thought was going to be the love of his life and her son whom he loves so much. This was not unexpected in some parts, but still a shock to him. There is responsibility on both their parts which brought them to this. He has an appt. with a counsellor on the 31st, but in the meantime I have great concern over the meds his doc is prescribing for him, knowing he has an addictive personality, two antidepressants + valium + blood pressure medicine and possibly others, plus he drinks too much. So far, he has managed to keep his business going. I don't know how either of them will afford to live apart, but there ya go.

It has been intense for me as he has called daily to talk and get my input and she has called a few times, too. I have been practising tough love to some extent because I recognise I do not have the energy for too much without depleting my resources AND because I've had too much experience with another family member who gets into a round robin of depression and what ifs. (And, because, bless it! I have been doing so well and will NOT give that up!) I won't go down that road anymore and I've told my son. If they have a real crisis, again (as in a week ago Sat. night), I've told them to go to urgent care or call 911. They both know I love them and also I have to protect myself, first and foremost.

Regardless, today kind of put me over the edge and I find too many thoughts of their futures roiling around in my head, so please send whatever calm, peace, etc. you are able to me and to Colin, Melissa, and Patrick (8 years old) Her mom is trying to help, too, but she is in Minnesota. These are all really good people...it's just sad that they got to this point.

Thanks so much, my friends.

So sorry kat. Our children are always our babies and our first reaction is to jump in and make it all better.
We can't.
Do what you need to do to take care of yourself. Your health has been a real issue lately and you finally seem to be on the way to recovery.
Hard as it is to say "No", it is often best for all concerned. These are adults with the responsibility of a child. Let them be adults and handle their own problems.
Listen, love and take care of yourself.

Not a one of us can truly love others if we don't first love ourselves.... Particularly when you are all struggling with the depth of emotion you has worked so hard to stabilize, remember you are a role model as well as a mother. Burn our is never a good life choice.

I actually listened to my own advice and spent last weekend on a silent retreat...
Let's see if this will let you share a bit of the magic....

Have you suggested they try to find a family or couples counseling facility? I wouldn't advise a church (unless maybe the Unitarians have something going!) but look into their municipality, county, or state. See if this is something they can work out with some help. If both of them are calling you, clearly they need to talk to someone, and if it is someone in their immediate vicinity with good training, that might push this tipping point into the background. Even if they have to spend some money out of pocket for a few weeks to go to a private counselor, it will be money well-spent. Some of the government supported counseling is paid for on a sliding scale.

Good luck to all of you!

Thank you, my friends, for your care and help. I did get some sleep, after an extra xanax, so got my mind to let go for a few hours of good sleep.

Tink, you have such an artistic eye for Nature's beauty; I shouldn't be surprised. Thank you for that respite and peace. I got *lost* in the photos for quite a bit.

SRS, they went to a counsellor last year, but had to stop due to finances and lack of insurance. He will be going to a county/state run facility counsellor on the 31st. I think she has just set her mind on him not being there, I don't know if it would do much good, BUT I have told them I think they should go, together, for help, regardless of what happens. I know they do love one another.

Sins, you have been in my mind...your example...I know you've been through a lot with your son and I am keeping your example in mind. You are an inspiration for me.

Everyone, thank you so very much. I love you all.

Thanks, Sins. I have not been able to cry since last October...I think my bod/mind/spirit just didn't have the energy to expend. Last night, an early b-day card my sister sent actually brought some tears. She'd written a short note about how time flies and some memories when I was a baby. It just went straight to my heart and I cried and cried...missing her, feeling a bit older which has never bothered me and the stuff going on with Colin. Thank goodness Rog was here and understood.

I will be better, too, when Morgan comes over, again. He's had a bad cold or strep, so has been home...we haven't seen him since Sunday. He goes to the doc today, so I hope he will not be contagious and can come over tomorrow. I will not have him over if there is any danger of passing on whatever he has.

Thanks, again,

Thinking of you.
It's true, they are still your babies, no matter what age they are.

First and foremost you MUST have a care for yourself, or else all your good work will be undone, and you will not have the strength to help them, even IF you wanted to. I think you have done the right thing to step back (although it must be so hard).
Your little ray of sunshine will be your lifebelt, I think!

Oh, my friends. I am glad at least to know I can still cry, even at the good stuff like your love and kind offers.

Dan, I'd love that, but at this point I don't feel I could travel, comfortably, any length of time and my Rog is low on energy right now. It is so kind and sweet of you to offer. You have touched my heart and made it full, as the rest of you have, also.

My son understands my fragility and is trying to soldier on without being too intense. I only spoke to him, briefly, today, to find he did go to the job he had lined up and got back okay. I was really concerned about his driving, esp. as it was to a remote, palatial show house up a very muddy mtn. with narrow, switchback roads and his service van only has rear-wheel drive. He had to use chains last time he went there. He's having to travel a lot. He was in Aspen the first of the week. I am grateful for each day he is able to function and keep his business running, though he is thinking of getting a full-time job, again, and just keeping his hand in, part-time, so he is sure of a steady income.

I have felt a bit down and anxious tonight. Rog and I were out of sorts with one another, but bless him, he did take the dog and I for a short walk at a park; the dog's leash in one hand, my O2 tank with line in the other. Sometimes I even stop to sniff and wish I could cock a leg to pee like the dog!**bg** If I didn't see the humour, the tears would soon be too much.

Wisdom of Morgan - the Half Pint Sage: The other day we were talking about grandparents dying. I told him I want to see him grad. from high school, college, and maybe I'd be a great-grandma some day, that's why I've been working on losing weight and getting fit. A couple of days before we were talking about eating and how much I've lost (over 40lbs in two years) and he said, "The more weight you lose, the more life you have!" Today, talking about sticking around, he reworked it and said, "The more healthy food you eat, the more life you have!" THIS is one of my fav. pix of him, taken last summer; it was a pure Joy moment. I'll scan in some new ones, soon. There is quite a difference, in some ways, from 5 to 6 and being such a "worldly" student, now.:-)

Spawdarlin'...can we send these godblessed elephants back, do ya think?! I could do with a nice, steadier ride on something more sedate.:-)

Thank you, ALL. It helps so much just to share with you.

Thank you, my friends. Things have calmed down, for the moment which is all we have really, the Now, right? I ought to have more to share after tonight. Apparently Colin & Melissa are to talk this evening. I didn't get much sleep so am off for a nap, now. Not sure if Morgan will be over or not. He and his dad were downtown after school and his mom gets home early, today, so I suspect he'll just stay home.

I found a fun-keep-my-mind-off-of-things site...keep an eye out for a thread on science experiments.:-) Morgan will love it.

Can't remember if I said I had a great session at biofeedback and, also, at therapy. Both are happy with where I am at and I am zoloft free!!

More as I know. Love you,

Please send whatever you can to our son, Colin, and his girlfriend, Melissa. He has not done well...has been using anti-depressants and valium and alcohol. It has come to a head, as we all suspected it would. She is either taking him to hospital, if he will go, or calling emergency services to remove him from their house. It can no longer go on the way it is, for either of them.

Please understand, I don't have the energy nor desire to relate all of what has been done to help, including tough love, nor to answer lots of questions. We know it is a cry for help and slow suicide, well maybe not so slow if it isn't stopped, and he does have a counselling appt. this Wed. but, of course that may be moot. I am okay...I was strong with him on the phone earlier, today, and just now with her. She has my support and love, as does he, but not for the self-destructiveness. She is making the right decision.

May the Light surround them and guide them through this time. I give thanks for this or something better for the highest good of all concerned. So mote it be.

Thank you, my friends,

A lot of prayers and good thoughts have been coming down here to our house, both to me and my wonderful wife, Kelly, who now has to burden the whole of keeping our ship financially and physically afloat. We will share and direct those to your house, too. God bless. harrison

Thank you, my friends. Melissa just called to let me know he is now in hospital; they were checking his vitals when she left to take care of herself and collect her son from his friend's house. Thank goodness he didn't see or hear any of this, today. For now, Colin is safe and being cared for...that's all we can ask for at this point. It is still going to have to be him who wants to change and uses the tools available. We'll see where it goes after this day. It could be a long night for him, but I am sure there will be some sense of relief, too. I know without health insurance (he couldn't afford his Cobra payments) he didn't want to go in, but was also crying out about being so severely depressed. I am giving thanks for Melissa and her strength and love of him as well as all of you and family.

In gratitude and peace,

kat

Well, I just typed an update and it didn't take, got lost. I can't do it all right now, but he is refusing to stay in hospital and insisting he will go home. The hospital folks have deemed him fit to go home to detox (which he will not do according to past behaviour) and hadn't even notified his doc. I put a bug in their ear so maybe they will try to keep him. I have to let it go, tonight and take care of myself.

Thanks for any and all assistance,

luvyakat
