Thanks! I love my ladies. Well I got suckered by two faces today. I disabled bulldog named bubbles and a rat named Jack Jack (From Cinderella) Jack Jack is freaked out right now, he is a baby so he needs adjusting time. I hope to hear about adopting bubbles soon. She is an English bulldog who is deaf who was almost put down because of it. I have had a blind dog and jeff has had a deaf dog before so we can handle her. The current owner can't. She needs hand signal and vibration training. She will be fabulous.

I'm sure both the dog and rat will settle down and be fine once they realize that only good things are going to happen now that they're with you.

We lost Red yesterday. Three years old. Not to bad for a Wal-Mart betta. He was my oldest. Now Patty takes that slot.

I got a job I am starting Friday. I am a little scared though because I found out today the manager that hired me is gone and I was counting on him to be my mentor. It was weird. I talked to him around noon and when I went to the store I will be working at to pick something up at four they said he didn't work there anymore. I am afraid of how it is going to turn out now. I am nervous.

Depression again

I have depression like many people on here. I have a problem though. I feel like anything I do wrong eats away at my insides until I can't stand it anymore. I don't know what to do other than pray that my faults and wrong doings are forgiven but they eat at me and eat at me. I feel like I am a horrible person and that I will never do anything right in my life. I sometimes find myself trying to justify the wrong just to make myself feel better. The things I do wrong just won't go away no matter how much I try to ask for forgiveness and forgive myself. How do you let go of things you do wrong?

Hey, Shirley!

I too have been dealing with some depression. Mine is mostly related to my health.

Yes, it is tough to work through our wrong doings. For me, I fall back on my faith by trying to remember that there was only ever one perfect person and I'm not Him. Also, I can't "forget" what I have done, I can only "forgive" myself for failing, learn from my mistakes, and try not to do the same thing again. I also try to remember that love is unconditional.

Blessings,
j

Hey Joe, it's been a while. Thanks for your words. It helps when people get how you feel. I do need to remember to forgive myself. I just hope I am not put in the position I was in again. Mine depression is health too, mental health anyways. Sometimes I wonder if getting a diagnosis is a good thing. It sometimes feels like it makes it worse to have a long list of crap put in your head. I got mental diagnosis' of Generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and dysthimic disorder.

I often feel like everything I do is wrong. I can't ever get the house clean enough for my mother's liking, I'm a horrible cook etc. All we can do is do the best we can and take it one day at a time.
