I don't believe that anything in life really has a do by date. One of the lawyers I work with has proved as much. She turned 50 before she had her bar exam. :)

Anything you like to do that can pull your mind away from your birthday in the days leading up to it?

Doikers 03-11-2010 08:37 PM

I will just try and take it bit by bit Crimson . I've always *ALWAYS* got music on nearly . I'm trying really hard to distract myself . it's hard but I have you guys to talk to. I bought a second hand Playstation game from ebay I started today , I keep losing though but that is a distraction , I'm out of gaming practice heh .

Baby steps I think , I'll try not to think of my birthday or the 9th , I'll think about tomorrows breakfast then I'll think of something esle , my game maybe , does that sound a good idea.

But please bear with me if I need a little extra support over the next 7 days :)

*sits and cries in the corner*
why am i such an epic fail?

MammaMia 03-11-2010 09:07 PM

You're not Crimson *hugs*

*hugs ward*

*hugs all*

Mark: I know the 9th has a lot of significance. What I was trying to suggest was making the 10th a "happy significance" day that you would want to live for so even if the urges hit you have something to counter them with. A kind of "no, I want to live to see tomorrow because of x". I do understand where you are coming from. I go through it every August 1st.

Doikers 03-11-2010 09:13 PM

*Hugs Crimson* you're not a fail hun .

Thats a good idea Kahlia :) *Hugs*

*Hugs Helen*

*cuddles wardies* sorry for keep disappearing. So tired and down this evening I don't know what to do with myself. Hope you're all doing okay, I'm thinking of you all x

*hugs Mark, Kalia and Helen*
Thanks guys but I sure feel like one... Got so tired of all the crap with my inlaws I blew up via chat at my husband and got so upset and angry I sat here crying at my desk throughout my lunch break.
The following content has been hidden - Reason : whining
I worked so hard to get my credit cleared up and be able to get a house and now D doesn't think we can afford it because our gas and electric would be so high because of them living with us plus getting the stuff we need for the animals... *shakes head* if it was just us and the kids with the average gas n electric bills (checked with the companies to see what the charges had been... highest for the year, lowest for the year and monthly average) it'd be 50$ left after my bus fare and pet supplies and all bills paid (including credit card payments)... i pointed out i understood the 2 adult sister recently getting jobs that don't pay them enough for them to have their own place but they at least pitch in (money, food and helping the kids do school work and some chores) but the mil who has us pay her bills and only sometimes pays us back, who wastes her money on nothing and doesn't want to or try to get her own place, the minor child who picks fights with everyone incessantly and has no where else to go because she's already been thrown permanently out of every place that once would have her stay... neither of them helps or even cleans up after themselves. *shakes head* even now (an hour and a half later) it still makes me sooooo angry. I just don't see how we can afford an overpriced cramped apartment with an extra room with less sq footage but can't afford a real house... Or how it's better than a real house and forcing the adult to act like one.

PoisonedApple 03-11-2010 10:26 PM

Gotta go for now guys... my littlest one has an appointment I can't miss. *huggles all*

Kahlia1981 03-11-2010 10:33 PM

God, it's 8:30am and I'm already so stressed and anxious .... so over this. :-(

MammaMia 03-11-2010 11:09 PM

Hey guys, having another crappy day here, took me 50 minutes to get out of bed and I was almost late. Can't really afford food either but luckily had leftovers from last night. Starting to wish I could just fall asleep and wake up feeling better, slept on the bus today I was so run down >:( x
