    Hi all, here are the Warm Line numbers I mentioned:
    Warm Line "Commons" (Middletown)[masked]
    Warm Line "Safe Harbor" (New Haven) [masked]
    Warm Line Windsor [masked]

    It's possible that one or more my have lost their funding with all the sequester budget cuts that have recently happened. The City/Town indicated is where they are located but all of them serve all of CT.

    Does it start at 7 or 7:30?

    November 5, 2013

    • Alice

      Amy, Sorry for the late reply. We start at 7 pm tonight. Just got to a computer since the last comment I left. I don't know why I don't see anyone signed up anymore. I thought there were several members attending?

    Sorry guys, I can't make it tonight. This does not mean I am giving up on the group. ...Amy, the spot's all yours.

    The meetup website says there's no more room to attend tomorrow... Can I still attend?

    Now that I think about it more, I have a list of things I'd like to do with the group for fun. I will email an idea when I am free. Please also send your ideas to me so I can send them out to the group. Thanks.

    I have a friend in another support group, and she tells me that a bunch of them get together every Sunday to walk laps around the West Hartford Reservoir. (In answer to Alice and Steve.)

    I'm disappointed that there won't be any group on next Tuesday. Right now I'm feeling so very alone, and extremely depressed. It's a very painful state of being. There are friends I can call, but I can't get myself to make the calls. There are other groups I can go to this week and next, I definitely want to at least make it to one. The one tonight, I am just not sure...I just don't feel I have the physical or mental energy to go. I feel anxiety building all afternoon. Anxiety and depression, both hurting me. It's like, my Life literally hurts. But I am not suicidal. Not sure if anyone here will read this. I could use any friendly support I can get. I think I will try calling my friends tonight, that might help. Just thought I'd post this, my "cry out into the wilderness". I look forward to the next meetup.

      I see a psychiatrist about once a month, he also does therapy, which is rare. Can't afford to see him any more often, since he is out of network with my current insurance. I'm presently trying to hire an in-network psychologist, but I am having trouble getting one that is accepting patients, or who will even return my calls!

      As I type this, I am feeling a little better. My mood swings wildly back and forth, depending on my meds, and if I am busy with social engagements. Being with my friends usually makes me feel better. But I can't see them every day of the week.

      October 29, 2013

  • Alice

    I just saw Steve's message yesterday. I want to say that I think it's a great idea to have some fun together. We can talk about this at the next meeting or if it's o.k. with Steve you might email him through the meet up site. I am trying to concentrate hard on work now. I will go out with you as soon as I can.

    I will try calling you tonight. I left a message on your email.

    October 23, 2013

    • Jim

      Hi Alice, Thank you for your concern. I got your message. I hadn't checked my email all day, and I was away from home this evening. Thanks for thinking of me. I am doing a little better tonight. Just barely. I've been managing to reach out to a few friends both in person and online. I still feel very alone in my life. I've kind of lost my nerve in attending other support groups. I may try again next week.

    I seems that many of us in the group are lonely, in addition to other afflictions. I was going to make a suggestion that perhaps we could do something more socialable, like going to a movie or going bowling. Spending time by yourself, at least for me, is not beneficial, and allows my negative thinking to just run rampant.
