I had gotten so sick and just kept getting worse so that something had to be done. We all 3 went to the doctor together and the doctor told me that I have had a nervous breakdown and was headed for another if I didn't get something done. I had lost my mother, brother, and my dad, and going through a divorce after 37 years. My heart was so broken that I was just a mess. The girls told me that Tennessee was going to be the closer place to me. I was scared of leaving my home, buy I was so sick that I told both my girls let's just go. At that point I didn't even know who I was. I was just going to stay 90 days, but I wasn't ready so I stayed an extra 30 days. I learned how to find myself & what skills to use when I needed them. I pray that I can keep it together and be well. I know that I will still have bad days but I will know how to get through things a little easier. I will be going to the therapist & groups if I have some close. It scares me thinking about going home, but I know I will have support & I need to have lots of faith in God, knowing he's in control of my life anyway.
I think everyone at Brookhaven were great & so helpful.
