I hit my wall this week, too.

It's so tough, juggling Mommy responsibilities, Wife duties, ministry commitments, and then that much glorified "me time". No one has it all together.

I'll pray for you : )


Prayers for you girl! Juggling life is tough - you have had a rough year. (I've also had). God's love and light.


holding you in pray Mel. sharing and talking about it is a healthy sign. i hope your holiday will comes soon. xxx


Please do whatever you need to do to look after yourself. Everything else will fall into place afterwards.


Aw Mel... strongs girl.


Just writing to send you my support. I do get the feeling from reading your posts that you are an incredibly capable, sensitive and aware person who may actually 'just' be having a normal response to a very large amount of "input" in her life.

I thought that you had gotten a lot of excellent and varied advice on your previous post -- not much to add on that front. I also think it's great that you open up the topic for discussion, and that you are asking yourself some really difficult questions.

But, again, my overall impression is that you are this really wonderful and profound person with a lot of good people in her life, and with lots of talent and diligence at her disposal. I'm not trying to downplay your sense of crisis, just to express my inclination to think that you have a lot of personal and social resources which will help you go through this crisis in a meaningful and constructive way, so that you can experience a positive transformation on all levels inside and out.


Hang in there!


I have a little something for you...


Many years ago my husband had to have 3 huge operations. I coped well. But when he was fine I just had a time like you seem to be having now.(and here I am refering to your parents haveing gone through so much) When I walked into my doctors rooms and told him. He said I was waiting for you. When someone close to you is so sick. You go into cope mode. But when they fine you have a bit of a melt down.


Hi Mel

Just know that you are not alone, there are so many of us feeling sometimes like you do.
Keep your chin up, speak to your doctor, accept the help that is being offered to you and hopefully all of this will pass soon.
There must be an underlying issue that is making you like this, try and find out what it is ( most probably best done with a psychologist)
we are here for you.
take care


Along the lines of what Debbie said. My husbands Aunt and Uncle lost a son many years ago, and the dad totally fell to pieces. The mom coped "fine" until the dad was stronger, then she fell to pieces - badly. I think this is the way we (women) are. The "holders togetheres", but sometimes, we also fall apart. Thats okay.

Hang in there - your beautiful family will pull you through - of this I am CERTAIN!!

Isabel! Thank you, that is so kind of you to say all these things and be so
encouraging. Made me feel so much better. I am very blessed to have so
much help and support at my disposal. Thank you. xxx

Mel - you are in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you in anyway.
You are an awesome ol' geezer :) and sometimes we all just need time to "regroup" and breathe again.
Lots of cyber hugs to you!


Mel you sweet dear lady. I wish I could hug you and say that it's all going to be OK, because it is. Obediently came over here after being ordered by your sister, of whom I am an enormous fan. However one thing that you and I share is our "happy clappy lordiness" and from that angle I can SO relate. Where's God? What happened to Him? How come what I did before to be close to Him isn't working? I went through this 3 months following the birth of my second baby (there were other things stressing me out on top of it too!) It was HUUUUUGE for me to take the meds. I even prayed right before I did! I really didn't want to do anything that God didn't want me to do, but if he did, then I did want to do it.
Here's part of my story:
HANG IN THERE. And just because you take meds for a while doesn't mean you automatically will be on them the rest of your life, necessarily.

Hi Mel,
Tertia sent me over to say hello. Take care of yourself and if that means taking the ADs then that's what you need to do.

God bless you.
