@contentandwell I'd love to have one if you know where she got it. 💝

@merpreb She does know I don't have any options right now. Being on an MAOI limits my food options so much and most people don't want the hassle of fixing food without the long list of ingredients I can't have. Meals on Wheels won't do it either. I keep burning myself when I try cooking stove top, oven and even sometimes the microwave. Ordering food delivered is too expensive here. Basically the pizza places are the only ones who will. I have a meeting scheduled with an organization that connects people who need help with resources in the area. I didn't think about asking him for that kind of help. Thank you for leading me there. I meet with him Thursday. Maybe he can help me not be so dependent on my neighbor.

@merpreb I posted for a couple reasons if I'm going to be honest and vulnerable. I was curious if other people in a strictly depression cycle felt this heaviness too. The second, and maybe more motivating, reason was I needed some support. I have no one to give me that support of understanding like you all. As good as my neighbor is to me by bringing me dinner and doing my shopping, she undercuts that semi-frequently by calling me lazy or some form of it. I thought I'd given her enough info to understand but I guess not. She did it again last night. Maybe I'm just a good place to vent because I'm not able to pull back from her being in my life right now. I'm trying to look at it from her point of view but it's still destructive to me. That's why I posted. I regretted it because I felt vulnerable and still hate having to ask for help.

@merpreb It was about 20 years ago. A girl that was waiting for her next session had deep burns on the sides of her face that came from the electrodes. Fortunately that didn't happen to me. They put me in the psychiatrict ward the weekend before. I had three per week for three weeks. They put you to sleep I think before they start. I don't remember what happened during the actual "treatment". It may work for some people. I lost memories. Some of them returned when a friend would tell me about it. Some did not. Like driving from Joplin to Kansas City's airport in a blizzard, picking up a friend that had to get home. I turned around and drove back to southern Missouri in the blizzard, out to the boonies to take her home, then back to Joplin. That was a big memory to lose and not get back. It was three months before I could remember who I was and be able to go back to work. And…it didn't help the depression. The doctor insisted I say it helped me. I kept telling him it didn't. So, once again, it was time to find a new doctor.

@merpreb I'm sorry you're going through this right now. I'm glad your husband is hanging in there for you. Anxiety sucks and how it displays itself can be a challenge for you and those in your world. I hope your symptoms ease soon and give you both some relief. Cyberhugs!

@parus. No. I'm not having any anxiety, just depression acting up.
