    Things just keep getting worse. Sorry don't have the energy to post any more than that.

    Minute by minute is how I'm living my life right now.

    Will update soon. I'm still alive and kicking...

    Minute by minute is no way to live. Do you have the numbers for some crisis support lines? Are you okay tonight? Are you alone?

    It's my daughters birthday in a few days and I'm having major panic attacks and anxiety for the last few days.

    Hubby flew out today for work...so it's just me here (dd is in bed) and I am bawling my eyes out in between feeling like I'm being sat on by a very large elephant. The weight of my guilt is impossible to shift I don't think I'm making any sense tonight.

    I read through my medical records- I know- silly idea. Maybe I should burn them?

    Big hugs. I think you really need to talk to someone. I think it would really help in order to navigate your way through all your feelings. And emotions. Why are you reading medical records? If they upset you put them down. Grab a magazine and a cuppa. Do some light reading.
    Don't burn them. They are important.

    My daughter's birthday was yesterday. We are having a party on the weekend. I think you should try to focus on the positives of the birthday approaching. Although my dd wasn't born early you know as I've said she has lots of issues too. The birth didn't go well for us. But on her birthday I'm excited for all the milestones and the obstacles she's overcome, and we've overcome. I'm not always positive about our situation but I'm trying. Sorry if this is unwanted advice. ..I really feel for you and hope you are doing okay.
    I don't know if you've seen my blog but I write about chloe... here's a link to it. Www.iheartbabylove.wordpress.com

    Hugs. I hope you are having a good day.

    I am seeing a psych but I don't feel she is helping. And I'm now on meds...

    It takes a while I think for things to settle. If the psych isn't working out perhaps you could explain that and she could recommend someone else. They are usually open to this kind of thing because not everyone clicks with everyone iykwim

    LynsDan, sending you lots of strength to get through this. Birthdays are a celebration so focus on the good. Maybe make some decorations & stuff lolly bags with your DD, bit of fun time?

    Have you managed to find a premmie baby/kid support group? There are loads out there. I think it would really help for you to share with other Mums. Just google in your home town,

    I believe there also support groups for wives of FIFO workers? Having your DH away can't be easy.

    Just remember what triggers your darkness and try to avoid where possible. Write down the things that make you happy & when your starting to feel down, do something for you/DD/with DH/fun.

    Wishing you all the best.

    Her birthday is a time to celebrate her life and what she has done so far. Its hard when you have so many challenges still ahead ... but she is your little miracle, and sometimes you need to be able to take a step back and celebrate how precious she is.

    for your DH not being there. That makes it so much harder for you.

    And huge for your loss of being able to have more. I know how that is (found out after DD that I can not have any more ... its so heartbreaking). It does get better though. It takes a long time, but it does get better.
