It is painful, having been there myself quite recently, I empathise but no getting round it. I know too how hard it is to keep going and have hope, but fingers crossed for you xx
That happens to me when I manage to get the courage to go on a date. Usually, I like the other person more than she likes me, and then no response. But there are others, and you are so awesome, you deserve someone who likes you too!
I hope even if things don't work out relationship-wise, you end up with a friend.
Sorry you've been feeling low, dear Esther - been thinking of you and good to see posts again (I've been/am ill so sorry I haven't yet replied to your lovely email:) ). Like Jeff, hope maybe there are other possibilities?
Ugh, that stinks. Is there someone else you can work with?
Not really Jeff. But told therapists about how I feel.
Nothing worse than not being able to get the help you need... I hope you have someone you're able to work with at least to help get through the next week. *Big hugs*
Hang in there. Thinking of you.
Hope the time passes until your next appointment quickly. Hang on tight until then. I know you can do it! xx
Hope your head is feeling better & that you may have gotten a nap in.
That sounds like a good day! Glad you were able to do something fun to elevate your mood!
That sounds like a great day! Glad your mood improved. xx
It's ok to be in bed and take it easy...hope you feel better soon!
Aw, happy pandaversary, Estherbear! We are so happy to have you here!
Getting that exercise in helps...as hard as it is, at least you can feel good knowing you did it!
Good luck getting off it. I got addicted to Klonopin & it was hard to quit. Lots of rebound anxiety. I hope yours goes much more smoothly. Just remember you'll make it out alive & will feel better not relying on it. 💖
That must be hard Amanda! I've been having a lot of rebound anxiety as well. Not that much fun. I only had 0.5 mg though ^^
That's awesome! I would love to do that, I love working with animals :)
That sounds really great! Something about animals make you feel comfortable. Glad you had that opportunity! ❤️
That's so good to see! Honestly, most days I feel like a 5 or decent ranking is the best I can hope for. It helps to remember that some days can be decent to good, too, when you're having a tough one!
Thanks all for the hugs. And decent is the best I can get for now so I'm quite content.
That 'i want to disappear' feeling is familiar...
Thinking of you, Esther. I hope the new AD helps you. Just hold on for a little longer to give it time to work. xx
Hope you can hang on, certainly when I started it took at least that long to have an effect. You're in my thoughts xx
Thanks all. I've added my mail address in the Google doc! :)
It is...the less you eat and do, the worse you feel. But it's so hard to do those things. I understand how hard it is to get out of that circle. I wish I had a way to help you, other than empathizing.
Really rooting for you, Esther. Any time you want someone to talk to, please reach out!
Email is in that pandadocs thing: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yzampFBAKcZ1MC-96LRfqts4DgEWGxnA-MjcPEiorLk/edit?usp=drivesdk
All of us want to help, dear Esther - reach out if you want. Lots of love xx
Sending you lots of strength, Esther. I'm always thinking of you and rooting for you!
Please don't give up, hugs
Lots of love, Esther - please hang in there. You're in my thoughts xx
Thanks all xoxo
Thinking of you, Esther. Don't give up. I know you will make it through this. You've got Pandas by your side. xx
I'm sure you have people to message if you need to talk. I know you are in touch with Silke and you can find me at https://instagram.com/jwtownshend I'll listen to you when you need to talk 😊
I understand that feeling. You want comfort and protection and that childlike comfort of not having to worry about anything and being able to just live. I wish there was more of that in later life...
As John said, we're here if you need to chat. I put my contact info on his google docs thing too.

Mine is on there too Esther xx
Same, Esther. We are here for you! ❤️
People suffer but they it's also possible to feel better with some support and help. Keep going Esther. Keep going.
I will try! Not ready to give up yet.
Well done. Also, I'm sorry, it's very difficult when people are taken away like that.
Sorry to hear this, Esther - that's sad news and I get how it affects you too. So glad to hear you want to keep trying! Lots of love and strength xx
That's so sad...I'm sorry. From our perspective, we see you as so strong getting through this and keeping on. I think you're amazing, Esther, and I know you can do this. Is there someone you can talk to about how this news impacts you?
