Oct 11, 2016 · Ready to throw in the towel ...... in Mental Health

@Making new friends is so very difficult. It’s almost like high school. There are groups in activities I’ve joined and they won’t let you into their little cliques. They may talk and be friendly but go off and make plans without even thinking of asking you to come along. At school, work, in neighborhoods I was always very popular. I’m upbeat and helpful and always have a smile on my face.
So….I’ve got pets. They love me unconditionally.

My niece is bi-polar. She is a sweet heart when on her meds, she doesn’t like the way they make her feel so she goes off them and is all over the place causing trouble. She has a child that she is mentally abusing. Thank God for her husband, he is the rock in that family. I hope he sticks it out.
I had another friend in Arizona that would go off her meds and then run off into the dessert and everyone had to look for her before she died of exposure.
My point….when they give you meds take them. Don’t stop. Call the doctor and get them changed but keep taking them.
I wish you luck in getting a job and getting rid of your debt.
I hope we keep talking so you know you have a friend.

I’m 70 and for some reason just love to stay home. My husband, younger but not as healthy, works from home. We go everywhere together. We really enjoy each other’s company. My fear is he will die and I will really feel alone because we’re together all the time now. His parents were the same so to him it’s perfectly normal.
Also, my mother never had neighbors in. She went to lunch monthly. She lived to be 99 and sharp as a tack. But towards the end she was lonely even though I visited often.
My friends all moved! At 65-70 to NC, TN, SC. Two died. We live in New England. So my kids have their lives at 50 and 45 and my friends retired and moved out of large homes to retirement communities.
I really like my life now but will be pretty alone if I outlive my husband.
Older age has come on very fast.
Thank God I’m not depressed about it but concerned about being alone if it comes to that.
I don’t want to volunteer, join clubs, make friends now. So… It’s going to be my fault if I’m alone later in life.

@ I’m sorry you moved. I’m afraid if the time comes to move my children may move for business reasons or empty nest reasons.
I would know no one. As it is my husband and I really love where we live and stay in a lot.
You don’t mention if you are ill.

Where in the world did this come from? Did you have an operation in that area?
Same Doctor that told you to leave it alone?
If you live in a rural area I would get a referral from a doctor not related to this problem to the nearest well know large hospital.
Love to follow your problem.
My thoughts are with you and good luck.

I have to take them at the same time every day.
That’s not happening!
My lips are sealed.

Anybody use a TENS unit? Outstanding for eliminating pain short term.

I’ll talk to my doctor about that. I’m on all kinds of antidepressants, anxiety meds. I wish I could take half the pills I do. I’m on chemo for leukemia so everything has to be combat able. If this works I’ll be forever in your debt!
