Four ways to overcome despair-

  Thank you- a positive spin on a negative situation many of us experience at one point or another in life. It is easy to get caught in the moment- so let it be, acknowledge the despair ;but be aware of alarm signals that you are getting deep...er in your pain/ sorrow/ despair and all these negative potholes. I know- seen enough illness and death of loved ones, including my late husband, been subjected to enough ugly drama from people who are supposed to share love,respect and care; been incapacitated for three months due to injury, live in isolation and a lot of pain.

Believe me, it is not easy. I also live with medical issues. All the points in this article are indeed helpful -I meditate, I write. For a few weeks I can't take a walk outside afraid of slipping in the snow.I love to play the piano but with my injury- out of the question. I have a great view of the lake and Nature.

The internet is a great resource- being housebound - I spend a lot of time studying, reading. Life goes on- I have been hobbling along, with few personal human contact almost all winter long. I am battling depression and sun-downing. At past 70 years , believe me, anyone can get past despair, if one is willing to. No one can do this for you.Surely, someone out there cares.

7:09AM PDT on Mar 17, 2013 I am grateful I am a 20th century person. No matter how protective we are with our children, many will certainly break out of the mold, peer pressure and their demand for independence, sadly at a very early age. I see this...
