I'm trying to hold on to my sanity until my first counseling appt. at the end of this month. A lot has happened recently that is making me feel very very sad and I just want to crawl into bed and not come out. Even my anti depressants aren't helping as much anymore. (I know I need to talk to my dr about that one)
*Son diagnosed with turrets syndrome, adhd and autism
*Completed school, but still can't find a job (put in 50 apps)
*Might end up losing my home (to my SIL- me and DH rent from his parents, but can't pay rent right now)
*I have no family to turn to. My mother is a drug addict and alcoholic who I can't be around because I don't want to take on her misery or have her around my kids.
*I feel incredible guilt over my sons diagnosis.
Honestly I don't want to work until I talk to a counselor and get stronger, but I have to. And I put ALL my effort into my interview and bought a VERY nice suit to wear to them. I had 4 last week. I guess I just need encouragement. Anyone have any to offer?

You said, "you know you need to talk to your doctor" about the antidepressant medication not working very well anymore, your right, you do! That's the first place I'd start, you really need to get that under control first cause your not gonna be any good to anyone else until that's dealt with first! As for a job, your at least trying, even though it's hard to function, at least your trying out there trying to get a job and hopefully whoever your renting off of will understand that. Have you applied for help from the state? You said you feel incredible guilt over your son, why would you? That was NOT your fault, you had no control over it!There's no doubt, "you have a lot on your plate", but like I said earlier, you gotta deal with your problem first, call the doctor today or go to the hospital so you can get the meds you need ! Hang in there!
