mich, I am here too. I am sorry what you went through yesterday too..Didn't go to bed until 2:30 a.m....

here's my positive point for today: Our privace fence that was destroyed in the hurricane is finally getting built today!!! That makes me feel better when I am alone. There were millions that needed new fences since both hurricanes down here, and we finally are getting it. But, boy, is it expensive and overpriced.

We had gotten a quote for new roofing one month b4 hurricane; needed a new one. The quote was for $4000.00!!! After hurricane, the cheapest quote, $7500.00...Everyone got so ripped off...Well, that is the passed. Now finally, my outside is done, but still have some repairs on the inside...still on a list...

GG, Cyndra, LL, Need, etc..

I will be around for a little while, off and on, then I have a eye doctor appt. for my 9 year old and then I have an appointment for my 5 year old regarding his rectal bleeding. It is making me crazy. I am losing my mind. I am having a hard enough time dealing with the crap in my own head, and I am so stressed out.

I will talk to you all later. I miss you guys.

Mich is off and running this am.

GG did you get another day off of work? Great to hear about the fence, and isn't that sad that when people have something tramatic happen to them (the hurricane) that contractors/carpenters get away with ripping people off - it should be illegal.

What time is your appt?

I lose GG somewhere...

So what kind of residential care is Jim talking about? AND what kind of programs, treatment centers and the like do you have in your area? And oh, you bet if you were in MN - I would come and see you : )

In MN (would imagine that it is very similar to other states) we have the *normal* hospitals that provide mental health care (units) and also have State operated facility's. Our state operated facility's have been getting a major overhaul - the state hospitals will eventually be completely absolute replaced with smaller State run mental health hospitals/centers: 30-45 days treatment centers with only *16 beds* in each. In my local area our 16 bed is scheduled to open in the next few months....I am so very excited about this change...

Residential care can be WONDERFUL. Complete and total rest. An opportunity to recover without ANY outside pressures or responsibilities. Think of it as a vacation for the heart & soul.

I am glad Jim suggested it, Mich. It might be the Big Turning Point for your life. And you deserve that!!

Love,

Ma Strong

The problem is that I am afraid of leaving my kids, and what would my husband do with them if I were not around? How would he handle them and work? I am so confused as to what my problem is, and what I want to do about it. I am not sure if Jim is going to give me the choice or whatever. I just want to be better. I want to think that I would go and rest, and get better. BUT, I think that i would go and worry. More than that though, I am afraid of coming out worse, or not having anyone there that truly cares. I would go NUTS not being able to communicate with you guys. (Hey, did that sound way co-dep on you all or what?) Oh well, I just don't know what I want, or what I think is best, or what it will take for Jim to no give me a choice. I am waiting for an email from him to answer some of these questions. I don't even know here where I would go. I just know that I am scared of who I am and where I am headed.

Ma Strong,
Thanks again for doing what you did at your church for me. It means A LOT.

Love you all.

I thought about that Mich -unable to talk to you for a bit : )...

Ask Jim what the options are in the area...what do the residential care centers offer...are they just a place that houses and medicates or do they have treatment programing. Are they State run or private? Are there in patient and out patient options? Thinking like say a week or two of in, then follow up with some type of out patient (thinking of the kids). Gosh I wished that I knew your area.

mich, it is okay to be scared...the good mom in you is just thinking about her little chickadees...It would be so hard for us too, we understand. But, can you let these thoughts continue??? Let Jim help you...Somehow guys will step up to the plate, but usually only when they have to...(I know, not all guys, but mainly talking about mine here)
