It's National Suicide Prevention Week

I thought this was timely. It's National Suicide Prevention Week here in the US, September 9 through September 15. You can get more information at Another website that you may have seen has a suicide prevention page,, that starts out like this: If you are thinking about this first. Then there's, with the 1-800-SUICIDE hotline some of us helped save last year. They're still taking donations, if anyone who's interested wants to log on there. When you call 1-800-SUICIDE, you are connected with a certified crisis center in your area. But, if you want a handy clearinghouse-sort of site, here's one that lists many crisis hotlines:

I am having my good moments, but not whole good days yet. I'm feeling impatient. I hope it doesn't take the full month I was warned about for this medication to take affect. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Thanks for Your Support!

Well, I've been back from the hospital for a number of days now. I still haven't switched over my calendar from August to September. I feel somewhat better, but I don't think the two new meds they put me on have totally kicked in yet. Things are going slowly.

I'm just trying to take the days step by step and do my best to take care of myself.

I was attempting to comfort myself and my parts the other day. I had noticed, earlier in the day, that someone who had been very kind to me over the phone brought on a crying jag in me. I was wondering about that later and thought, "It's almost as if I don't want to be soothed or comforted. It's almost as if it hurts me. It feels painful." As soon as that thought was out, I heard a part--I think her name is Sarah and she's between six and eight years old. Sarah said, "You're only teasing me. It's just a trick. You'll only hurt me later."

That just broke my heart to hear that coming from such a young child part. Her words spoke volumes.

Blog Carnival Update: When I delayed the BLOG CARNIVAL AGAINST CHILD ABUSE, August edition, I had to stick in a new date and just randomly chose September 14. That's a week from Friday. I'll have to check with Lisa at Sadly Normal and make sure she's okay with that post date.

I want to thank all of you for your e-mails and kind comments during my recent set-back. Your kindness and support mean more to me than you'll ever know or I could ever express in words. Thank you!

I'll be trying my best to get around to some blogs and return some e-mails in the next few days. I miss you guys!
