    Catherine,
    How are you doing today? You've received some wonderful advice here. May your 'blue funk' move along soon.

    I have to share a story about our first exchange students. First off, a little background information, our three daughters were all adopted from Korea. When our girls were in high school we had a Japanese exchange student for just a month. When it came time for her to go home there the whole family was crying and sobbing. We were a mess. Once the bus pulled out of the parking lot my husband turned to me and said, "We've never had to give one back before!" He had said exactly what we were all feeling! We always want to keep them forever! So go ahead and have a good cry when the exchange students have to go home.

    The other idea I've had while reading all of the posts is to be sure to get out into the sunshine. I find that if I have had too many days inside I'll get to feeling blue and it's amazing what a little sunshine will do, even if it's only 10 minutes or so.

    Also, please know that there are many, many prayers being said for your granddaughter. It helps to know you are not alone and we are all here with you!

    Take care of you!

    Thank you everybody...My G-daughter has been put to sleep for her MRI,
    I've been waiting by the phone to hear from my son, whether they will do surgery...one of our Exchange students is packing his bags now, we;ll go out to eat tonight and he'll fly back home to Yucatan Mexico in the morning, we are going to miss him...the other is from South Korea, he leaves in 2 weeks.........it has rained alot...not much sunshine here......but all the kind words will be my sunshine..cause you all have been so supportive during my blue time............I'm going to move my sewing machine back into the bedroom that "Miguel" was using...hhee already starting to feel that little excitment of sewing. This change could boost all kinds of creativity!!! You girls are the kindest ever!!!!!! I'm gonna cry!!!!

    Wow... I'm amazed at all of the wonderful advice on this subject. First of all, I had no idea this was so prevalent among so many. I thought I was the freak & noone else ever experienced this, or just pms on a bi-monthly basis. Second, Thank you Catherine for bringing up this subject, and thank you to everyone else for opening your hearts and being so honest. I have felt like this for the past couple of months, but I thought it was because I haven't had time to do any sewing, & when I have had time I wasn't interested and had to force myself into doing what little I have accomplished.

    Thank you again to all of you. You helped me, & I didn't even realize I needed or wanted some help.

    Finally, Do you think men ever, even once in a while, go through this?

    Indeed I do. Sadly more often than they can admit or share.

    Then too, truth be told...in our world,especially these days, such occurances are not confined to age, or gender. I'm glad we know the vital things we do.....1. To share. and 2. To care. After that ...it's a downhill run.

    Here is a goofy thing about being in a funk.... There is only one way to go and its up, so just start thinking about something very wonderful and special must be coming your way as you are on the way up instead of down. And trust me, you are very normal in your reaction to your sitiuation. And the Goddesses on this website are sooooo correct, chocolate is a very good thing. Hang in there- the good is on the way :):)
