Hello everyone. Better late then never are my thoughts as to why I'm so late posting here today. I did not sleep well last night. My heart is heavy on a couple of things and I have been really struggling the past few days as a result. So I kept my distance, I didn't really feel "social" so it wasn't hard to stay off of the site today. But I'm ready to shed this funk of a mood that I'm in. And thankfully I am starting to feel a little better. I need to focus on the positive and get off of the pity pot. It is time to break out of this Debbie Downer Party and get on with my life and turn my frown upside down. Are you any good at getting yourself out of a down mood when it strikes you?

@Courtlynn Reading and reflecting on the many thankful posts drives home the reality to me that I am blessed and have plenty. But sometimes my heart hurts, I hate the fact that our daughter is gone, I hate the fact that I have to have this surgery and worry about the outcome.......you know emotional stuff.
I am really trying, and I feel a tad happier now, less sensitive is maybe a better way of explaining it. I have to stop worrying, next week is my surgery and I'm so damned scared. I have to put my positive mindset on, and then I'll be fine, but it isn't easy today.
I got really low this week. I have had a lot of issues over the course of my life that have been difficult, and somehow the road isn't getting any easier, and I fell into the poor me mindset. She and many others here, did lift my spirits. I'm so thankful for your consideration and care, thank you. I'm my usual sunshine and rainbows happy girl today again.

I am not that good at it. You would think being on an antidepressant would help that. I can talk myself into thinking more positive, but logic doesn't often help my actual feelings. Let me know if I can do anything to support you. And I mean anything. I would try my very best to do it.
Thanks, you just did. My heart hurts, I was thinking of our daughter, and how much I would have loved to have had a daughter, especially now that she'd be a young woman. And I'm nervous, next week is my surgery, and I am fearful of getting bad news. I'm just a silly old worry wart the past few days. But your kind words have me smiling and feeling a little happier, thank you Amber!

Have you ever seen Debbie Downer from SNL? She makes me laugh. Even when I am in my Lo moments I'm not like her! Find her on YouTube and you might be able to find the Christmas scene from a number of years ago I usually put myself around people so that I can act like I'm more happy!
