What to do?

Today was a terrible day for me. It seems like I had no energy and when I came home from work and took a nap, I didn’t want to get out of bed. I am just feeling “blah”. Does anyone have any suggestions? I sit in front of a light and try to think, but am just depressed. I am also on meds and have told my doctor. Thanks so much for all your help!

The reason I am unable to attend the women's conference is because Sherry and Farrin told lies about me. If these so called church friends believe these lies that are coming from past drug dealers and users these stupid people never knew me at all. These are… read more
