Hi All

Hi again and so sorry it has taken me so long to write again. Just been busy!

M has got a puppy for himself. She is a cute thing, however we needed another dog like we needed a hole in the head. We have 2 dogs already and they are my responsibility. I told him that he must take responsibility for this dog, as I am too busy to take on any more. He has been doing really well, so far.

I have always tried to get him to bond with my two dogs, but it just never happened. I think (and don't laugh) that he was jealous of them. He has never been mean to them, but has made comments, etc...

I am glad that he has found this puppy. I think it will be good for him, I think dogs truly are man's (and women's) best friend.

It is getting hot here. uggggh. I always get bummed out about this time of year. Not sure really why, but last year I went on anti-depressants and that seems to have helped me. I think it is knowing that a long hot summer is ahead. I hate the heat and do get physically sick if I get too hot. So I feel rather trapped in the house when it gets hot.

I have been working on my flower gardens. This is a real therapy for me. M always makes nice comments about how pretty my flowers are. That makes me feel really good, as he is not one for lots of verbal affection.

Well, it will be 2 weeks and then M's family will be here to visit from out of state. I am anxious to see them all. I hope that M holds up well. Sometimes the stress of company can be too much. I'll let you know what happens!

I will write again soon.

Hi - I was hoping some of you may be able to help me. I am not schizophrenic, but I am no stranger to mental illness problems (I have depression and ocd and have suffered from anxiety attacks). But I am able to work and generally function in most aspects of my life.
My question is this. I've been lonely for a long time because of my condition, and I've met what seems to be a really nice lady (with schizophrenia) over the internet...and we share a lot in common. I don't know much about schizophrenia. I don't even know if we'll meet...though I'm kind of hoping we will one day.
What are the chances of this kind of relationship working? I lead a very quiet, structured life...and this is how I cope with my own condition. Do you think that we could conceivably have a real moving in together etc? What lifestyle issues would I have to consider?
I would really, really, really appreciate some advice on this matter. Ozzy
