I agree with Tom. Depression run in my family and on occasion I get into one of those slumps. I used to be a COO of a construction firm and I moved so fast that I lost track of “me”. after the company was forced to close I looked around and realized how beautiful the simple things are: flowers, books, my dog ect… It made me feel so blessed. And trust me when I say you are not the only one that has a problem either holding on to a man or attracting the wrong man. I have posted a bit on here and I have dated a man 20yrs older from me, I dated a man who eventually said he will never fit into my life style, I had one try to fight me and trust me the list goes on. Life is beautiful and it may seem very dark at some times but there is much more light then there is darkness. Keep your head up and your soul mate will enter your life when its time, keep dating and you will find him. I mean you have already accomplished much….. I hope this helps
It does. Thank you. And yeah -- I've been trying to see the beauty in stuff. Nature, people, animals, etc. I know it would probably be better for me if I had kept through with my promise of starting to volunteer at an animal shelter, but I get so attached so easily and emotional with them it probably wouldn't have done me so well. I've also considered getting a cat of my own recently, but I'm not sure if I should or not as of now.

Forget what one doctor says, instead see what an attorney says. Find a A social Security Advocate in your area - you said Texas, so here is a Google: [Only registered members can see links. ]
S/he will get you to the right doctors and will assess your case from the legal (not medical) side of things.
My only issue with going back through this process is that I'm not sure if I can handle it mentally right now. When I was trying to go through the disability process, I was a nervous wreck for about four months. It was horrible.
I know I should probably start trying again. I just need a bit of courage to do so.
