Mod Update and Personal News

Mod Update: Welcome to all the new members Holly or I didn't get the chance to welcome personally! It's great knowing people are still finding us on teh internets and able to use our resources. I hope we'll get to be a little more active as we come out of summertime, and I'll make more of an effort to post too.

As far as community news, we have a new book added to the user info book list. Also a link with some inspirational quotes-an idea Holly had that I forgot about until I updated the mod info (btw, Holly, if you want to update any of your mod info, lemme know and I can copy/paste a new one for you) and now have time to employ. So, if you have any inspirational quotes you use or have used before, please comment with them to this post, and leave an author/source for the quote. Looking forward to seeing everyone's motivational sayings! :-)

new meds

Ok-anyone know about the meds: Effexxr and Seroquel? I don't know if I spelt them correctly, his handwriting is hard to read.

The first one is for the anxiety, and the second is a tranquilizer for sleep. Has anyone taken them before? Hope everyone is having a good week! :-) -Brittany

P.S. A new book has been added to our user info page-if you ever have a book/website to add, please make a post or comment back to any one of my posts. :-)

therapy homework

I was doing the assignment in Courage to Heal for Honoring What You Did to Survive, and I thought I might share it with you guys. I'm printing it out for my therapist-Christina-tomorrow. I was hoping to have tired myself out with all the emotional work it takes to do those things, and it hasn't yet worked. Maybe I went too numb....anyways, just popping by to say hello and share a bit. I hope everyone is doing well. :-) -Brittany

saw Christina today...

We talked about my mom-not a big surprise there. But we went through some things that sound trivial, but were such a big deal to me. I feel lame saying them because they sound like things everyone should know, things that should be obvious-but they weren't to me.

Lesson One: It is not my job to make my mother happy.
Lesson Two: I am not the reason she in unhappy.
Lesson Three: I can learn things she didn't teach me and become a whole person by myself.
Lesson Four: I'm allowed to have a private life with boundaries.

I have never heard anyone tell me these things point blank, but Christina did today. (not in a list like that, but you know what I mean...) It was so amazing. It's not my fault my mom is unhappy with life-do you know how cool that is?! I'm not to blame!

Just thought I would spread the happiness of my discovery...hope everyone has a good week! :-) -Brit

mod post, and an update!

I was looking through a new book I got, Beat Depression and Reclaim Your Life by: Alexandra Massey, which I am adding to our ever-growing book list on our user info page. If anyone has any books/websites/therapist sites to add, please let me know by making a post of your own or commenting on any one of my posts.

I had another idea-I know I am kinda late in this area of livejournal life, but I have just discovered the joy of tagging things! I was thinking, if we tag our entries from now on with our name (at least our name-topic(s) too if you feel so lead), then people can look us up and see our process/progress, in order to better support us. Not a requirement, but an idea: tag your name on your entries if you feel so lead, it may lead to more comments.

This place has been quiet as of late, and I know I haven't been doing as much with _the_couch_ as I should be doing, and for that I apologize. I know we all understand the issues within depression and whatever else, but it's important to have places like this to lean on each other. I think so anyways. I'm hoping as I start to make more posts, more people will join in again. We also have a banner for advertising, if anyone feels like doing so-let me know and I will be more than happy to link you to it.
