I'm pretty miserable today, too. We're not even having Thanksgiving right now cuz so many of us are sick. What's happening with yours?

just a bunch of stuff going wrong.

and one of my really great friends changed her cell phone number and never told me she did so now I don't even know what it is. Only reason I found out is cause I texted her old number and its someone else now.

Well I have the day off, and as it is my normal day off, I dont get paid for the holiday... but at least have a day off. :roll:

I am going to lay down. I might even nap. Maybe. :roll:

Sorry you all are having such a bad day, will be praying for everyone... while I lay around by me lonesome doing... nothing.

Pup, Where in Europe would you like to go if you go.
That's ok if you haven't commented on my story yet, Shann, in time.
Amy, get well soon, I pray.
Everyone, The Lord be with you, comfort you, strengthen you physically, spiritually and instill His loving guidance. In Christ. Amen.

So much for the nap... maybe next week. And on top of it, I think I am catching some ones cold. Bird did you sneeze at the computer? These computer viruses are toooo weird. :roll:

Jay, I haven't quite decided yet. Friends in England, Russia, Ukraine, France, and Germany. I might just go to Spain. Be my luck it would rain. :lol:

But, as I said I haven't decided yet. That new comp is sounding soooooo cool. :wink:

Oh my, sounds like lots of folks had a miserable holiday--I sat at home feeling por me 'cause nobody in my family even so much as sent an email. I turned them off talking about God stuff I think. I've been doing like Shann suggested and tried to reach out but I guess they're lost to me. They spend time on facebook but don't say much in answer to my messages there either.

I need to get a new life; been a hermit too long, but most days I hate to even get out of bed. Finally made a doctor appt up here, but the office is so busy, they set me up with a nurse, saying none of the docs could see me for at least two months. I miss my old doc in Pgh but I just can't drive that far anymore and I hate the idea of going into the city. But I had an up close and personal relationship with him and I'm just plain scared to try another. I haven't had any of my tests done for a couple years and can't get my prescriptions refilled anymore. I have a bunch of med probs on top of depression, so I guess I need to go to one or I might as well just let fate take over. If it wasn't for my pet birds, I could always go shake hands with my resident black bear and at least nourish the soil. :roll:

If the Lord still has a purpose for me, I wish He would show me what it is. I'm feel so useless in this life I screwed up so badly.

I'm sorry I'm dumping this on you guys, but I really don't have anyone to talk to. Thx for shoulders--I know you all have your own burdens.

We all feel that way at one time or another. Me... more so than I care to tell. But that is why you SHOULD come here more often.

Encouragement.

To either try harder, or be more a recluse like me. Ok, so I have a job... at night, when no one is around. And talk about a screw up, my life has been one big failure from the beginning. But here.. the Lord keeps me in touch with others who truly care.

Love ya Patty.

Sorry your Thanksgivings' weren't so great :( I have definitely had my share of depression and terrible holidays. I think that is why this year I am SO happy with how our Thanksgiving went- it was amazing. I guess it just made me realize the last few years have been terrible, you guys were here for me but I really was suuuuuuper depressed and lonely. And finally (it felt like forever) God is really changing me and my situation. He has brought awesome people into my life and those people have encouraged me to not be so much of a hermit- I even have a gym membership, which for me is huge.

So I know some of you are in a hard place right now, but just keep pressing on because God does listen to you and will answer your prayers...eventually :wink:

And Shann dont let yourself believe you are going back, accept your one bad day and resume a positive attitude. One day will not ruin all the progress you have made, so don't even let yourself give in to that, even a little bit!

Perkins, if you don't know what The Lord wants you to do, with skills you possess, volunteer, help an elderly neighbor, mentor a kid - the list is endless. The harvest is ripe. You (anyone here) may want to try Global Media Outreach http://www.ichristianlife.com/site/Page ... e=ro_about - it's been a huge blessing for me and it only takes 5-10 minutes a day to minister to people.
