Warrior Woman needs prayers and support STAT

  1. Theresa asked me to relay a message to everyone here. She is feeling very depressed about her mom and all the stress she has been under lately. She even stated she has had suicidal thoughts. I begged her to get help immediately. She sounds totally down and devastated.
    Any good thoughts or prayers could only help.
    Thanks! Nancy

    I just telephoned Theresa......NO ANSWER at their home....left her a message to come to the BB and read this thread about her. Told her to stay encouraged, we are praying for her, and sending her positive energy to hang in there, and let her know that I would be calling her in the morning regarding her making that doctor appointment. Anyone else want to call her, I don't think she'd mind me giving you her telephone number. Send me a "PM", and I'll send it. Love ya'll so much....you all ROCK!!! :kiss

    We discuss so much on this board...
    My hope is always to make a difference to someone who needs a 'difference' made in their lives.... either by advice or laughter, (usually through laughter)
    Life does give us so much to deal with sometimes... so much that we think that the task at hand is not one that we can or want to accomplish...
    You can accomplish it though...
    Something that always helps me when the task seems overwhelming is to look at the lives of others...
    Then I have to get myself up, stop feeling sorry for my own situation and do something for those 'others' whose burden is so much greater than my own...
    It is through them that I gain strength and the perplexity of my own problem takes on a new workable perspective...
    When you speak in terms of suicide that is such an enormity of a topic to subject your online friends to but something your online friends want to help you with...

    They give unconditonal support, advice, warm wishes, and love...

    Now that the topic is to a forefront, you need to give them back what they have given to you...
    You need to see your doctor and post that you have so they will know that they have made a difference to you.
    Don't make them feel like they have to beg you to do the right thing... just do what a prudent nurse would do.
    You can do it for yourself and someday, it will be you who is helping another.
    Best of luck.

    I'm still here guys. Really I am. I had to lie down for a while and just had to ride with the feeling for a while. I feel a little better. It is not my intention to hurt or worry anyone here. Believe that friends. But unfortunately everything I told Fedupnurse is true. My thoughts have been dark, and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnnel. But I'm ok physically Ok?? I'l call first thing tomorrow for an an appointment. All right sibs? Consider this a callback. I will always love you. Warrior Woman.

    ((((((((THERESA))))))))))
    THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!!!!!!! YOU JUST CAN'T SEE IT YET.
    Thank you for making the appointment and getting help from "the professionals". You have a few weeks left for school and that in and of itself is overwhelming! Add your mom's health problems and it is normal for you to feel down and overwhelmed. But it is so important for you to get help! It is out there.
    Besides, you don't want Renee to send Vegas there with her purse do you??????? :kiss
    Please let us know how you make out tomorrow!!
