Else, I'm so sorry for your loss.
Good for you for getting in to see your physician so quickly; you'll be better for it.

Else, Thank you for checking in. I hope all goes well tomorrow with your doctor.

Looks like we're about to turn the page to Part 15 of our little thread. We are good together.

Else, I hope things are going a little better for you, and not so dark. How did the appointment with your doctor go?

Hello everyone. I am completely off that drug which was giving me tremors. I am detoxing from it, the doc said. The tremors have mostly ceased. We have not held a service for my cousin yet. I'm not her immediate family so......

But I have sunk deeply back into depression. I'm sick with it. I can barely move. It feels like a horrible snake coiled in my stomach, continually sending deadly venom into my system. There's nothing I can do. Nothing anyone can say or do to take it away. Here I am.

I am going to try riding my horse today if I can get up the energy to go saddle him up.

Oh Else, I am sorry you are feeling so depressed. I wish I could help. They haven't put you on anything else yet? Please know we all care, and are feeling your pain also. Talk to as many people as you can. Don't isolate. Love you.

Back from cruise with family, wonderful time,save watching two thousand " beverage package" passengers get their money's worth...
Sorry to hear your struggles Else, do hope doc can find right treatment.
I must say I felt temptation on the cruise like nothing I've felt in the last year. Guess it's my first sober cruise! I felt so out of it ordering water and Pepsi!
Check off this trial!

Nice work, OL on getting through the cruise! I bet that would be tough.

Else, I've been thinking of you and sending healing thoughts. I know that depression feeling all too well--the part about a snake coiled in the stomach was a very good description. If I lived closer I would bring you some good food and coffee. Hope that you've gotten out to ride your horse--some fresh air couldn't hurt. Sending cyber hugs your way.

Many of us have found that depression holds plays a large role in alcohol addiction,myself included. Else,hang in there, do something nice for yourself, like ridding your horse as much as possible. I know how important it is for me to stay busy.

Hi, All --

Else, I'm afraid I'm something of a techno-ninny on matters like that. Maybe the tech forum?

Congrats, OL, in getting through the cruise. Mom wanted so badly to go on one when we went last February but I honestly cannot envision myself ever doing that again.

Life is going all right on this end. Had Mom with me over the weekend and we enjoyed ourselves a great deal. Went to a concert, little shopping and a couple meals out.

Work has been up and down. Some accomplishments for which I'm proud but the "high-maintenance" boss has us going to a long department all day Friday and none of us can figure out what it is she wants us to present. So three of us spent the better part of the afternoon locked in a conference room coming up with what we think she is trying to articulate. And loads to do tomorrow to prepare. Ah well.

Am a month from my big day. I ordered new living room furniture. Didn't exactly go small there, did I? But it's been 14 years and so that doesn't seem extravagant.

All my best to you, dear, dear people.

V.

Ha ha ha hurray. I think I fixed it this time.......keep your fingers crossed. This kind of stuff can certainly can give your mind something to mull over.......sorry guys. I am feeling ok today and have been pretty busy all day. I really can't say I'm "better" but I'm much calmer. Except for when I was on the phone to the apple folks. They are no help at all.
