Hi Mary - I will be there tomorrow, but will let you know if it's later than we planned --- because of the snow/sleet yesterday Mel didn't go up till this morning. She is coming back tomorrow morning due to that change. Just wanted to give you a heads up. (((((((Mary)))))))

Thanks for responding to my blog, Mary. I know the benefits of good inpatient care...I have been in and out of hospitals since I was 18. We don't have very good inpatient care here though. I've had some bad experiences and after knowing GOOD psych care, I know what I get now isn't very good...especially the nursing care. I realize that if I manage to get far enough to the "line" without going over I'm going to have to relent but I've got the next couple of days covered for reasons to keep myself from doing any self-harm. My psychologist told me to decrease the stress. I've got so much pressure to do things but it's killing me and I wouldn't get any of it done if I was in the hospital so I'm just letting go. I'm going to watch TV and color mandalas in a little bit and try to update my page on here a little and just not worry about it (all after not getting out of bed until about 2:30). Minute by minute, hour by hour. All I can do. ~Nancy

'Depression is also a form of fear, and at its deepest, it is also paralytic. It is as useless to ask a person immobilized by depression to summon the power of will as it is to bug a dance of a corpse.' Paul Gruchow, 'Letters to a Young Madman: A Memoir'
