    When has a stressful time in your life eventually taken you to a time of peace?

    I have an loyal but older cocker spaniel named Honeybunch. Can the days I am in a lot of pain and exhaustion effect him physically and emotionally?

    Is it normal to feel desperately exhausted and unstable for days on end with Fibromyalgia ? Does technology make symptoms worse? #Fibromyalgia

    #CheckInWithMe I can’t go to my senior prom 😔

    I kind of knew this already, but seeing as I am recovering from a pretty invasive eye surgery on Wednesday, and I’m still on a very high dose of Diamox so I have a lot of fatigue, going to prom is just not really an option for me.

    I do have some really great friends who want to take pictures with me before they go to prom, and I’m looking forward to that, but I still feel like I’m missing out.

    I don’t know what the point of this post is. I guess I’m trying to reassure myself that like my senior quote, it will all turn out all right in the end. I do most likely get to go to graduation, so wish me luck that my mom and my guidance counselor can figure out all the details for that! 🤞

    Does Anyone Else Have Anxiety And Depression At Same Time??

    Today I'm having a double dose of mainline mental disorders: Generalized Anxiety And Depression!! I STILL haven't figured out how these two seemingly Opposites in the Mental Health division ( mine!),can be present Together!? But they Are "in" me! Too many times to ignore completely,but my med appt is Next Monday,the 19th,so I'll get to bring it up-again!! If an increase of Seroquel pops up-again!- I just may throw a hissy fit! IF it Won't hurry me to Psych. Hospital!!, It's just plain weird to feel all the Anxiety AND Depression feelings at the Same Time! What and How will I? treat the One That's Uppermost in my mind? What if they're BOTH high?!?!What if I'm just Imagining it?! What If???!!

    Are your closest friends abled or disabled?

    Just lost another "abled" friend. I thought she had a clue but it turns out that's not the case. I'm 67 and just moved to a new state. Have you had to make new friends after a move as a senior What's the best friend scenario you can imagine #Loneliness #EhlersDanlos #Senior


    Senior age Anorexia

    I’m 60 years old and I “ should” be recovered by now and giving hope to others. But that’s not my story. However, if you are 60, plus or minus, I hope you will join me in continuing to walk toward recovery. Someday. ##Senior Anorexic
