What's Going on with Ginny?

Hello friends, followers and fellow networkers and especially to all my Admin. staff at Gin's Green Business Network! Ijust wanted to update you on what's going on and why my presence has been so absent lately.

As some of you know, I've been dealing with alot lately and starting back at the end on May with my friend trying to committ suicide, then I had an uncle that died from a brain tumor and cancer, was unable to go to the funeral. Then my friend Danny, an older gentleman(bacherlor) that I've known since I was a teenager and for the last year, have been helping to take care of him. All kinds of major medical problems. In late June, he broke his other hip, while recovering from the first hip break and a partial amputation on his left foot. After the surgery to repair the second hip fracture, they sent him to a rehab facility and within 3 to 4 days of arriving he went into a cardiac arrest! He was out for a total of 5 minutes, but then got him back and rushed him to the hospital. In the few days that followed, he continued to have more arrests and seizures that they couldn't figured out why. Family arrived the next day, made descions and took him off life support a few days later on August 3 and died at 9pm, EST. This was a BIG blow to me. The family had no funeral or anything here for Danny, which was a little disappointing, but not my descision to make.
For Danny and his family, that live in North Carolina, I help find a home for his 2 dogs, (his children) got rid of his cars and sent the money to his mother and all other important things that they needed help with. So, while trying to catch my breath, I found out thru a friend of mine, that a good friend of my daughter's committed suicide on her brother's birthday, which was August 9, so then I had to take my daughter to her first funeral. This was very devastating to my daughter. We went to the funeral. My daughter chose not to view her friend during the viewing. I'm so glad she didn't. This poor child looked awful! I'm glad she won't remember her that way.

So for that last few months, I've been slowing recluding into myself, not caring about anything or anyone and shutting everyone out. I finally went yesterday to see my psycharist for my meds and met with my psycologist to talk, after which, they decided the best thing for me was to add a new medication called Seroquel XR, which is mood-stabilizer and also can help you sleep. It's give to people with Bipolar disorder,major depressive disorder and many more. I have been diagnosed with traits of Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, with Major Depressive Disorder and now take 4 different medications to help keep all chemicals in balance.
They main reason I'm sharing all this personal stuff with you, is because I want you to understand me a little better and why I do the things that I do and to bring awareness to these mental diseases and hoping that by sharing my stories, that they will in return help someone else.
