Hugs right back at you. Bipolar1Blog July 27, 2017 at 8:52 pm Oh gosh Kitt! I’m so sorry you’re having an awful time. I am too. Hate this illness with all my might. Sending you hugs and tons of positive energy! ???? Kitt O'Malley November 8, 2016 at 11:57 am Beautiful metaphor. twentysomethingtenacity November 7, 2016 at 11:27 am Sometimes I feel as if I’ve got spider web cracks all along my skin and the slightest unrest will shatter me to pieces. It’s knowing that others can relate that keeps me together, I think. I truly hope that you have something that keeps you together on the hard days. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:13 pm Thank you. Me, too. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:10 pm Thank you. Yes, it is not easy, but it is possible – with faith. Guess I’m needing more faith. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:08 pm I understood. Thank you for the good goos thoughts, love, and prayers. I send the same to you. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:07 pm Thank you! Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:07 pm Thank you, Samina! Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:07 pm Thank you, Jess! Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:06 pm Me, too. Pretty sure I’m large enough to break into a myriad of pieces. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:05 pm Thank you! God bless you, too. Kitt O'Malley November 2, 2016 at 12:04 pm Thank you. bpnurse November 2, 2016 at 12:35 am Many good thought and hugs coming your way, Kitt. I hope your load will be lighter soon. Paladin November 1, 2016 at 6:14 pm Even though I am grateful for the showers this past weekend, I have had similar feelings, Kitt. Took a swim this afternoon and feel much better. Am able to provide you the following advice: a) The supreme council has given you a thumbs up. You will not be sacrificed. b) Sent my son-in-law a 50th B-card with a simple message “You’ll get over it”. c) Got a thought for the day quote in one of my e-mails: “Faith does not make things easy, it makes them possible”. That’s it. Hope any or all of this advice will help get you back together. As always, God Bless + Namaste. Viv@Grief Happens November 1, 2016 at 4:59 pm Good…not goos. What. A. Day. Viv@Grief Happens November 1, 2016 at 4:59 pm I relate. Sending goos thoughts, love & prayers your way. My bipolar journey November 1, 2016 at 4:51 pm I feel you! I am here too. Jess Melancholia November 1, 2016 at 4:41 pm Stay strong Kitt. I know it’s tough but you can make it through. That’s a fact!
