welcome purpleephphant! i'm laura. *hugs*

*curls up in the corner* alone, the way its supposed to be i suppose.

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 12:00 AM

*cuddles Lia, Laura, Lindsay, Hels, and Jill* (Lots of L's there!!)

Lia, I'm still worried about you... PM me sometime if you want/need to, just reminding you that the offer is still there. And try and head off the breakdown if you can, somehow, I don't really know how. Maybe by talking with the Samaritans, maybe by PMing me or someone else you trust on here, I don't know. Just... don't let it blindside you. Do as much as you can to prepare for it. :(

Laura, I'm sorry that you feel so alone. I wish that I could help you in some way, be there for you more than "just" online. Keep talking with us when you have the time, because maybe we can help you feel less alone? I don't know, sorry if that was a dense suggestion. :-/

Hels, how are you, hon? Sorry about FB chat acting weirdly for you... that sucked. :(

Jill, please try & take care of yourself. I'm worried about the drinking stuff... laughter is good but not when it's caused by being drunk, necessarily. Just don't make a habit of it, if you can help it...

Lindsay, how are you doing this evening?

Oh & Reaper... I agree with Lindsay, show those voices who's in control - that would be you!! You can make it through this safely... I hope you're safe right now. :( I worry about you as well.

SoMuchMore 04-09-2010 12:05 AM

*hugs april* its not a dense suggestion. I just wish i had people IRL that acted like they wanted me around. and there is just a lot of stuff coming up that i'm used to having an automatic group for that I don't have anymore due to various situations, mostly concerning the ex.

MammaMia 04-09-2010 12:08 AM

*cuddles everyone*

SoMuchMore 04-09-2010 12:10 AM

*cuddles helen back*

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 12:11 AM

Aw Laura, I'm sorry about the friend stuff. :( Once again, wish I could be there IRL with all of the VPW gang to hang out with you. :) That would be beyond awesome, if a bit awkward at first, haha. *hugs*

*cuddles Hels back*

Oh and I emailed my sister back. I don't know if I'll regret it... but... well, I did it. :-/ I'm still angry with her but hey ho, so it goes. (My new saying, ahahaha...)

Now... off to get those 30 minutes of walking in. :-/

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 12:15 AM

Hugs April. Don't worry I'm okays. Really Okays.

FlyingNy 04-09-2010 12:23 AM

Jill, one good thing about being a complete liar yourself means you know when other people are and I don't believe you so there :P I'm worried about the drinking, second night in a row now...

You're not meant to be alone Laura. You have us. Is there not anyone IRL who you can talk to? You're always welcome here, as you know. :) *Hugs*

And well done April, it took me weeks to forgive my friend and what she did was on a smaller scale. I'm proud of you for that as well :)

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 01:05 AM

Huggles lia, okay it's a half truth. The drinking stuff, it's nothing to worry about, I hardly ever drink and that is the truth, after tonight me drinking won't happen. Hmm what's it going to take to stop you and April worrying about me? Not ment in a nasty way, sorry if it sounds it.

FlyingNy 04-09-2010 01:10 AM

We never will ;) Mwahaha! There is no stopping us! I know what you mean though, it's annoying, not in a nasty way, you just hate being the cause of more worry for people. Don't worry about it though (confused yet?) it's ok. *Hugs*


shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 01:27 AM

Huggles lia, lol great =p only teasing. It's not annoying, just think you both are worrying unessarly.hmm I so can't spell. Apart from hmm nevermind doesn't matter.

FlyingNy 04-09-2010 01:59 AM

Apart from what Jill? You don't have to say, but I get the feeling at least a part of you wants to. It does matter. If it's bothering you, it matters. *Hugs*

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 02:05 AM

Oh great. More **** hits the fan...


shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 02:13 AM

Cuddles April and lia.
Hmm how much pain I'm I have been in today and tonight. Is hurts, is hurts. Curls up under a blanket and crys. Sorry.

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 02:17 AM

*cuddles Jill* What pain, honey?? is there any way I/we can help?

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 02:25 AM

Hmm keep holding me? Hmm bad place. Jill being a bad girl. sorry no making sence. sucks thumb.

risenfromperdition 04-09-2010 02:37 AM

*sits next to jill and offers hugs if you want* here if wanna talk

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 02:39 AM

*keeps cuddling Jill* 'S okay, sweet... I don't always make sense either. Are you staying safe??

*wonders where Lia went & if she's okay*

*offers huggles to Heather* How're you doing, love??

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 02:50 AM

Clings to April shaking. Hmm kind off,Jill says to much gets trouble,being told I'm a bad girl. *puts head on aprils shoulder*

Kahlia1981 04-09-2010 02:59 AM

*cuddles every wardie*
*waves at new wardies*

Sorry for the lack of individuals but there have been 5 pages of posts since I was last in here. I have been reading but haven't been able to keep up with everything.

I'm losing the plot ... and I don't have the energy to pick it up again. I want to reach out for help, but there's no where to reach out to. My psychiatrist can see things but he doesn't know what he is seeing. My housemate says it's because I'm intelligent.

I just don't know anymore. My life is falling apart and like humpty-dumpty there's no way to put the pieces back together ....

Bump 04-09-2010 07:28 AM

thanks everyone :) just feel overwhelmed with everything thats happening right now.

Doikers 04-09-2010 09:35 AM

Hi Purple Elephant ! I'm Mark :) I really like your avatar:)

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 11:42 AM

Good morning all... *cuddles for everyone who wants them*

Hmm, seems to be pretty quiet...

*curls up next to Mark with a book and her journal to dread breakfast time coming*

Oh, & PurpleElephant, if you want to talk about any of what's been going on lately, I know that people wouldn't mind if you typed about it here, PMed someone, or started an r/v thread in the r/v forum for that. Or didn't talk about it at all, if you'd rather not. :) It's really up to you how much you disclose. My PM box is open, though, if you want/need to talk... I'll be around a bit this morning (since I don't believe I have anything else that I need to do). *hugs*

Doikers 04-09-2010 11:47 AM

*Hugs April* Yes I'm still planning on e-mailing you although probably not until closer to my 30th :S

Bump 04-09-2010 12:00 PM

Doikers - thankyou :)

Scarletdreamer - thankyou for being so nice. i started a thread in serious yesterday

Doikers 04-09-2010 12:50 PM

*Hugs Kahlia as I Spot you * How are you today.

First thing this morning I got out of bed to my fridge , grabbed the bottle of rum and emptyed it down the sink :S I'm not intending to go out and buy any more alcohol either.

SoMuchMore 04-09-2010 01:37 PM

^proud of you Mark

*cuddles everyone*

Wow i havent been up this early since... well over a year lets just say that. I have the first (american) football game to go to this morning for my uni! Its a pretty huge deal around here so i'm going tailgating if people remember to call me. That would be way disappointing if they didn't. Okay, im not going to turn into a down-er. I am planning on having a good time this morning so we'll see.

Sorry that so many are struggling right now. Thinking of you all.

*leaves out an extra box of cuddles as well as some fun hawks gear if anyone else wants to support my uni team* :-P

Doikers 04-09-2010 01:51 PM

Thankyou Laura :)

GO American Football HAWKS!!!! *Waves Flag*

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 01:51 PM

PurpleElephant - you can call me April. :) And Doikers is Mark. I know, there will probably be a lot of names to remember... but hey, may as well try to get started. ;) Is there anything you'd prefer to be called (here, at least) instead of your full screenname? And you're welcome. ^_^ How are you doing today?

Mark - SO proud of you!!! Well done, big bro. XD That's an awesome step, very wise of you I think. Can't express enough how major a step that is towards recovery, either. :) How are you doing otherwise this morning? Oh, and don't feel pressured to email me, you can if you want or not, and whenever is best for you. <3

Laura - wow, yes you were up early!! :P At least, the earliest I've seen you posting on here. :) I hope that you have a fun time today at the football game. I'm really not into sports like that - watching or playing - the only sport that can really keep me entertained is tennis (lol - head goes back and forth and back and forth :P)... but I really do hope that your friends/acquaintances remember to call you and that you can go tailgating. Sounds kinda fun actually... try & enjoy yourself. ^_^

*cuddles everyone*

I'm... eh. Last night was a "huh?! WTF?!" kind of night... family issues again. I am bemused, very very bemused, by my family right now and just need to vent about it... so I think I am going to retreat to my r/v. I'll let you all know once I've updated it so those of you who are interested, can read it. :-S (Am SO glad that none of my family that I know of are on this site!!!)

*sigh* :(

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 01:58 PM

Cuddles all. Sorry about last night. Curls up under a blanket and shut out the world.

Doikers 04-09-2010 01:58 PM

April ,Thankyou :) I most probably will e-mail you ,but I need to get my thoughts together first , maybe even write it out before I mail you .

First things First , I am going to ask my nurse to breathalise me on Monday afternoon , so I know if it's safe to go back on my Antabuse.

Also , what is Tailgating? heh

Doikers 04-09-2010 01:59 PM

*Hugs Jill*

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 02:03 PM

From my understanding, tailgating is basically having a party on the tailgate of a pickup truck (at least, that's where the idea originated). I've never done it but people sometimes have picnics that way, or drinking parties, really any type of get-together that's outdoors. Laura, correct me if I'm wrong!! (Hopefully what I said makes sense!!)

Jill, love, no sorries about last night. It was fine. You needed support & asked for it. Are you doing okay this morning? *huggles*

Blah. Off I go to my r/v... >:(

SoMuchMore 04-09-2010 02:07 PM

*hugs april* sorry about your family issues. I am also always happy that none of my family is on the site... not that i talk about them much, but just in case you know. I will read your r/v thread later. Also, I will try to enjoy myself if I ever get to leave lol, people are running late I think as they are mostly still signed in to facebook (i sound like such a creeper there i know lol but its fb chat that is telling me lol). Hopefully it will be fun. I'm really into football so, i look forward to this every year. I understand that its very much so not some people's thing though.

*hugs jill* you okay?

*hugs mark* tailgating is when people get together in parking lots and other areas around the stadium and party and grill before the game. Trust me, there is no better place for a hamburger, even if it is 8am lol. Usually, there is random chanting and cheering for the team and it is overall just a really fun time.

Yea april explained pretty well... although we do not require a truck to have a tailgate party here lol.

Scarletdreamer 04-09-2010 02:23 PM

Okies, r/v updated. ARGH am so angry right now... well... maybe not angry... more like pissed off/hurt. :crying:

I spy Lia and Mark!! *glomps & cuddles*

FlyingNy 04-09-2010 02:53 PM

Right well I'm going mental. I thought I had replied already.

I hope you're feeling better this morning Jill *hugs*

What's wrong April? Families suck. *Hugs*

How's everyone else?


misskitty112 04-09-2010 03:23 PM

Okay, now I'll do some individuals.

PurpleElephant, hey! I'm Felicia! I like your avi too!

*hugs Mark* I'm SOOOOO Proud of you right now!

*hugs April* I'll go read your r/v in a minute =)

*hugs Laura* Have fun at your tailgating party! I so wish I could go to one today, but my uni team's not playing, and the team I want to go watch play is 4 hours upstate. booo =(

*hugs Jill* Feeling any better today?

*hugs Lia* How are you?

Alright, if I missed you I'm sorry. *hugs any missed wardies*

I just got up, my brain is fuzzy, and one of my very complex friends is talking to me on facebook in his very cryptic way. haha.
Ohhhh... and I have tons of homework to do, bet you guys never guessed that one. I want to get a lot done today and tomorrow so I can go do stuff with friends on Monday, since we have a three day weekend. Yay!

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 03:41 PM

Huggles all. Thanks Guys, hmm still feel really down, just want to die. I'm such a screw up. Why do I keep doing this to myself.

Bump 04-09-2010 03:57 PM

misskitty112 04-09-2010 04:08 PM

aww. Thank you Em. =)

MammaMia 04-09-2010 05:19 PM

*cuddles everyone*

Doikers 04-09-2010 05:46 PM

*Hugs Helen* I notice from your status that you are still sick , are you still really coldified ?*Leaves Strepsils and honey and Lemon*

SparkleKitten 04-09-2010 05:53 PM

Can I check in? I'm having a really rough time with my family recently, just feels like I can't do anything right, I certainly can't by them (and they've said so...) *sigh*

MammaMia 04-09-2010 06:01 PM

*hugs Mark* My cold/cough are improving thank you :) Still really easily exhausted and keep feeling sick. But they're improving too. Still manages to make me feel pretty awful at times though :/ Being anxious about someone really isn't helping but I can't do anything til they get in touch I guess. I'm probably worrying over nothing!!!

The One Who 04-09-2010 06:04 PM

*hugs everyone*

I still feel a bit sick :(

SparkleKitten 04-09-2010 06:09 PM

Aww no :(

There's so much poorly sickness about right now *hugs*

shadowedsoul 04-09-2010 06:11 PM

Cuddles all, feeling very unsafe right now, really want to hurt myself. So many messed up thoughts

SparkleKitten 04-09-2010 06:12 PM


We're here for you

MammaMia 04-09-2010 06:18 PM

*hugs everyone* We're bit of a poorly ward aswell as a struggling one it would seem =(

SparkleKitten 04-09-2010 06:21 PM

I'd offer around my immune system but it barely helps me. Hope you all have a speedy recovery.

I feel terribly alone, I wish my family would stop bullying me for not being able to eat anything right now (I has gallstones and they seem to think I'm faking to waste their money on food or something) :(
