...seem to be getting worse and not better. Conventional wisdom is that despite the "waves" & all that, we're supposed to have some reprieve from hating life at some point. What are we supposed to do? I've been going to a doctor, but he's a man, not a magician, and I suspect that because I was such a happy, life-loving person before, he doesn't have a lot to "work" through or "correct"--just IT. And there's no way around IT. And "they" say that time is supposed to lessen the severity of the pain so life is livable. Well, for me (& I know I may be looking at this the wrong way), this was not a one time event that recedes into the past a bit more with each day. It happens anew each day. Fresh, new, and again each day. Why hasn't Oprah done a show on this? Why is there nothing I have have found to do or tell myself to start taking things in a better direction? What's going to happen to those of us that can't seem to turn this around? I am so frustrated because not only did I used to love life, but I was a problem solver--even resilient in the face of obstances. But this doesn't feel like an obstacle--this feels like a never ending, excruciating pain. Where to turn? Anyone?
