When I asked my "doctor" about counselling he said "this is not my area of expertise" so he is not going to be any help to me at all. He was on holidays for the last two weeks and his father took over for him. His father is the one that asked about why I needed counselling and his father is the one that told me to take the Celexa, which made me quite sick a few days ago and I have not recovered from that yet.
Unfortunately, in doing some quick research, you may be right. Most of the anti-depression meds out there have the same basic side effects that you are experiencing. Don't give up though, the counselling may really help you and they may have some other ideas about what to do to get you some help. Hang in there, I know you've been through hell but please don't give up....

Christine, I agree with what Chris said, I hadn't thought of that! Family doctors specialize in dealing with everyday health issues, but you wouldn't want your physician to be making the final decision, for instance, as to whether you need open-heart surgery.

So, my happy thought for the day: My dad's best friend (the one recently returned from Nepal) called to get the scoop on my mom's cousin. Her husband died about four years ago and we don't know if she's ready or interested in a relationship, but if she is... Well, to put it succinctly, there are many reasons that we believe this would be a good man for her.
Although, a few hours after he called, mom suddenly realized that if things worked out between her cousin and him, she would be sort of related to him... and she claimed to be horrified at the thought.

Julie - what part of Iowa/Illinois were you in? I'm familiar with the border. Must be pretty far south... is there a drag strip in Keokuk?

Gina, I could be a TA now if I wanted but there are no specific qualifications that you need in order to do it, I was doing the course mainly to get some classroom experience. I'm gonna do the teacher training course next and then hopefully have a classroom of my own instead of working in someone else's.

QOTD
Egypt
Kenya
USA
Germany
New Zealand

If money and time were no object I could quite happily do an around the world trip but that is my current top 5. Egypt has been on my list since I was around 10 and I will go one day - my friend has been trying to convince me to go with her on a cruise down the Nile, I'm tempted but it will have to wait a few years.

I have visited lots of different places in England and Wales but have not yet managed to visit anywhere that involves a passport, I don't have one (yet!). My favourite place is a little town called Saundersfoot on the Welsh coast.

Well I feel like an idiot; it takes place at Gateway International Raceway in St. Louis, MO.

Julie - lol! No problem. Next time, turn north up Hwy 61 and visit the great state of Iowa.

I showed off my Fair Isle sweater to my professor's wife today. She's trying to learn to knit socks. I'm dropping hints that she should come join us here. She couldn't figure out dpns, so she's now trying Magic Loop and doing better.

Brenna and I came up with six must-see places, including Antarctica via Argentina. We also have four additional 'While we're at it...' places: Australia or New Zealand to finish off her 7 continents (Our Big Six covers 5 continents)... Kenya, South Africa, or Tanzania (because honestly, who goes to Africa and doesn't do a safari to see zebras and lions and elephants and such)... and 'Somewhere in Western Europe' because I insisted that 10 places was a good number and we couldn't choose a place. My current trip plan calls for about 9 months of travel, looping the world starting to the west. Now I have six years to do logistics. (or, five and a half years to procrastinate and six months to panic.)


Hope everyone is well!

Good Morning Socksters!
Christine-I'm so sorry that you are going through this rough time and will continue to pray for you, frank, and your family. Just remember your never alone and that you are loved.

Gina-Will continue to keep E in my prayers. Since she broke up she must see something, hopefully one of the jobs will call her back and she can move on.

Julie-Its busy here as well and I'm not sure realy with what just seems not much extra time for knitting here either

Rachel-Yay on finishing your classes!

Chris-What an experience you had not only in Vietnam but in your cubicle. Was anything ever done? Was there someone higher to go to? I agree with everything you have said with Christine...thank you for being here to share that with her.

Emily-Congrats on your belt and your traveling list! I gotta go with Julie I really really wanna see Ireland one day : )

lelvsdgs-Welcome to group!

Thanks so much for never giving up on me. It means a lot! I am not on the computer much these last few weeks. I spend a lot of time watching "Two and a Half Men" and trying to make myself laugh or listening to audio books and occupying my mind. I am actually knitting a sock while doing this and I am at the heel of said sock.

I am on NO MEDS for anything other than the IBS now. Monday I was three months without a cigarette. Monday I also went to the specialist about my knee and he told me "there is absolutely nothing wrong with you, your breaks are all healed and I have no idea why your knee gives you any pain". I contacted my lawyer and said that with a report like that on my file, he might as well go ahead and settle the law suit so we can pay off our debts and get on with life.

Don't misunderstand me, I am very happy that my breaks are all healed. I have worked hard towards that goal. However, there is something going on with my knee and now it will stay that way for the rest of my life because neither my GP or the specialist believe me when I say what I feel.

Life goes on.

Again, to each and every single one of you, I thank you for the love, patience and understanding you have shown me through this, the hardest thing I think I have ever gone through.

Hugs to each and every one of you! xoxo

Thanks for the group hug. Apparently menopause has some sort of affect on me at this time as well as all the other things my poor old body is trying to deal with. I will just keep on plugging along and see how things work out for me.

Again I truly do appreciate all the support you, my online knitting family, give me! I am working on the heel flap for sock #2 now. I'll let you know when the gusset attack starts!

Thanks Chris for the information. My Dad bought me one of those machines years ago when I had the first whiplash. I used it a lot. I still have it here but did not try it this time. I was listening to the doctors and doing what I was told to do for once (silly me).

Anyways, I'll chat later, I have to go to hydrotherapy.

Hugs,
Christine

Chris, I don't have a clue. I found something similar in my house, but there's a part of a sweater attached and the stuff feels kind of cottony. Hmmmmm. What could it be?!?
