NaBloPoMo for January 2011
This is me, my friend Joyce, cousin Carol, cousin Jack and sister Sue - I was around 6 years old I think.
The subject for the whole month is "friends". I haven't been to NaBloPoMo in a while. There are daily writing prompts (no Saturday/Sunday), but the whole month of January the subject is friends. I made my own badge to click on and you can go to the site. Couldn't help using the "Friends" from TV - I loved that show!
If any online friends/acquaintances are reading this post, please forgive me. I haven't been a good friend lately. I know I've mentioned my best friend is my husband, and he's been severely depressed. I've posted before about PTSD, and how years ago I worked and he slept most of the day. Rich has been out of work since October 5, working only a few days.
We've talked off and on, and he talked about not caring, not wanting to do the "same thing day after day", turning 60, etc. I feel very, very helpless and a bit depressed myself. His counselor mentioned about going to an inpatient clinic to check on his medications, or another alternative would be electro convulsive therapy.
Usually talking with people I like talking about stuff I've found online, crafts, my family, TV stuff, music - it just depends on who I talk to. I try and be upbeat but lately I haven't been. And I always think "who wants to talk to someone that's "down" all the time - at least lately? I know the meaning of a true friend is someone that will listen no matter what, but I guess I just didn't want to dump on everyone my depression and worry.
I've talked to some family and friends and told them mostly what was going on, and for you I am so grateful for you listening and offering suggestions and just being there.
