My name is Rose. I've lived in Virginia since I was 3. I grew up in the Fredericksburg area. However, I'm brand new to the King George area. I am a mother of 2 boys (one 8 and one 14 months) and a step-mother to a girl (8).
I have a hard time meeting new people face-to-face. On the internet I sometimes have a hard time of how to put things into words when first starting out. However, once I get started words come easier. When meeting someone for the first time I am a little anxious and things. Once I get to know someone I feel better...it's just getting over the initial meeting and things.
I am bipolar. I have PTSD and general anxiety disorder. Even with my medications I tend to get into moments of feeling sad about how things have turned out in my life. I cry a lot...over the silliest things at times. I can't even read to my 14 month old without crying when I get to a sad part...even if it's a book I've already read. I feel that there is something wrong with me...but I don't know what.
I finally got an appointment with a general practitioner to talk to them about my medications until I can get into therapy in March and to talk about the pain in my lower back. More often then not I feel old and broken. I'm only 28, but I feel like I'm in my 60's or 70's.
*sighs* I hate feeling like I do. :(
My children are the light of my life. Without them I would have no real purpose for I would find it hard to find the brightness in this dark world.
