*waves* Hey Shaz :)

I hope you sleep well JK :)

*Spots an April and jumpsonher! *

Scarletdreamer 04-06-2010 12:56 PM

Shaz, of course you can come in!! :) *hugs if that's okay?* I'm April, btw. :)

Kat, what a wonderful set of responses that was!!! A tremendous effort... I am not that good, or that diligent, to reply to that many people - very frequently anyway. It can get overwhelming in here. *cuddles* How are you doing? Hopefully Hazel sleeps better tonight... :)

Mark, how are you doing? I'm sorry that you have to put on "that" mask... I know what you're talking about... :( *cuddles tight*

Hels, how are you? and Oliver? You've both been very quiet the past day or so. :) Well, Oliver for longer than that... we miss you!!! :)

Taz, well done on the replies as well... update us on how you're doing when you can, or let us know when you've updated your r/v thread (unless you did already & I just missed it :-S). *cuddles* Things will be okay. Thanks so much for your support of everyone on the board when you're struggling yourself - the same goes for everyone here!! I think we have a pretty awesome bunch of people here. :)

G'night Julie!! *tucks you up in your ward bed* :)

JK, we miss you too. Hopefully you sleep well... any plans for the weekend?? (and I really need to respond to your PM, sorry I haven't yet!!)

Laura, I hope that you're doing a bit better back at your uni. :( I just wish that things could be better for you at your parents' place... *cuddles gently*

Kahlia, well done on getting so much completed!! I am impressed. :D Concentration can be difficult so I am proud of you. Yey. :) *cuddles*

*cuddles everyone else I've missed & who wants them*

Soo... I got my cello!!!!! *bounces around the ward* It's so freaking beautiful... and I can actually kinda sorta play it - it's so effing huge compared to my violin and viola, haha, can't wait to get a string bass and see what THAT feels like... lol. Anyway. I'll settle for a cello for awhile now. It's been a few years since I've purchased an instrument (read: about 6 years), so yeah. Woohoo!! I could go on about it forever but I'll spare you... :P

My bestie and I went shopping last night, went to the mall and I got quite a bit at different shops there. A cute Sanrio tshirt that has a panda on the front and on the back it says "Don't be a sad panda," an Alice in Wonderland tshirt that has the Red Queen on it and says "Off with her head" (I have yet to see the movie though!! we're going to rent it today I think), some awesome shoes :P (I am totally a sucker for shoes...), and some other stuff, including books (of course). Woohoo. Yey for birthday presents. :P

I'm so tired... :( got up at 6:40am but went to bed around 10:30pm so didn't get a lot of sleep. I have a feeling I'll be taking a nap later... hah. :-/

Have a dentist appt in an hour. :-S For replacing another filling. It's going to hurt.... :'(

How is everyone else doing??

*bounces some more* :P

Doikers 04-06-2010 01:07 PM

There is something Wrong with my BT ( British Telecom ) bill now, my Dad has taken it away and will try to fix which I appreciate , but it's like I'm 29 an I should know how to solve these problems myself, I'm pathetic.
I'm meeting Hannah L in an hour and a half , I LOVE spending time with her, we have similar issues so I don't have to put up a facade so much. I've been really low the last few days , I have ruined my life cut by cut.:(

Doikers 04-06-2010 01:08 PM

ooohh April I just missed you on facebook , I replied just as you logged out :S sorry

MammaMia 04-06-2010 01:18 PM

*cuddles everyone*

To those who've asked, my interview went okay, I hadn't made a post about it. Just waiting to hear back from them.

Kahlia1981 04-06-2010 01:58 PM

*hugs/waves at all*

Sorry for the lack of individual replies, I'm just quickly jumping on to read about you all before I head off to bed. I'm extremely tired. I've submitted one assessment. It'll take about a week to hear back but I've followed the Marking Criteria so it shouldn't be an issue. Only got a couple more things to do on the assessment for the other subject. Am hoping to get that one submitted by Monday. I won't be upset if I don't - especially as my mother's birthday is on Sunday and I don't know what my siblings have planned. I'm really hoping that they aren't going to have something out there (all of the rest of my family live 30 minutes out of town and with no car its a nightmare).

Anyway I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who is giving me encouragement in relation to my studies. The first six "Stages" of this course should be fairly easy. I could have RPL'd through them but organising the RPL paperwork and interview etc is more difficult and time-consuming than just doing the work. And you never know what you can learn in those easy subjects.

*leaves *big hugs* and *care packages* for everyone*

katnovia 04-06-2010 03:39 PM

*sneaks in and hides under the table in a plastic cratefull of pillows/duvets*

Need to work out what went on in here last night. I got a bit annoyied at sarah and miel when I was writing my RV, and she got all stroppy and came here, and then rosie was upset and crying and..I dunno.. I fell asleep...the hazel gave me a really rough night :S :( I need space. I need time without her to sleep properly.

me hapy my writting better thankssyou everyone me feel a bit betters now.. and daddy jack hekped me feel safe

Scarletdreamer 04-06-2010 04:20 PM

The following content has been hidden - Reason : Cello pic... big

*drools at the picture* Not at me... I... well, I won't say anything self-degrading, but the cello is beeeeeeeeautiful. *is still partially on cloud 9* Hehe... just thought I'd share, though. Hopefully no one minds? :-S

PoisonedApple 04-06-2010 04:54 PM

The cello is beautiful April. And so is the person holding it :) Enjoy it :) *hugs*

Mark~ Sorry to hear about your bill going wonky just when the other is straightened. It's great that you have someone willing and able to help you with it though. *hugs*

Sorry everyone... that's all for replies right now. I got Gen's stuff taken to her school and her teacher was happy with it all. Then made dinner. Then got sent to the store. Then had to do my evening routine. I got to bed at 2 AM, woke up at 330ish, 403, 5ish, 550, then when my alarm went off at 620 I just wanted to crawl back in bed. A woke up after I got up for work and asked where I was going and said she didn't want me to go and cried (she's a daddy's girl unless she's sick... then it's i want my mommy...) I'm exhausted... TGIF

taz35 04-06-2010 05:41 PM

*hugs Julie & offers teddy to Owen* Hope work goes well for you!

*hugs JK* I know the feeling of wearing the mask. Definitely sucks, but sometimes it's easier? Maybe that's just me. But I hope you're doing alright <3

*hugs Mark* How did it go having your family over? I wouldn't know how to go about getting my bills fixed up either, so I wouldn't worry too much if I were you :) Sorry to hear you've been so low <3 Hopefully you start feeling a bit better.

*tackles Shaz* Hi :) I'm Taz. Taz and Shaz... this could get confusing! How are you doing?

*hugs April* Thanks :) I updated my r/v last night, but was really foggy, so I'm not even sure if it makes sense, or flows at all... the cello looks amazing, although not nearly as good as the person playing it :) did you post pictures in another thread will all your purchases? I want to see this panda shirt :D

*hugs Kahlia* well done on completing the first assessment! Have you talked to your siblings to make arrangements? Might be easier than waiting around for them to spring something on you!

*crawls around under multiple tables to find Kat & hug her* Must be a major pain in the ass to have Hazel annoying your sleep schedule :( Any idea what caused the commotion last night with Sarah and Miel?

*hugs Crimson* Ahhh damn :( Waking up randomly like that really sucks. Hope you rest up over the weekend <3

I'm doing alright today I suppose. Not bad, not great, just floating in the middle. It's kind of nice. Was a real bitch to my dad last night though, and immediately felt horrible right after he left, so I ended up SI'ing again. And he keeps checking my arms, saying it's because he's worried, which makes me feel awful, and I usually SI because of that. Argh. It's a never-ending cycle. I just want him to not make me feel like crap about it. I don't think he understands the whole addiction side to it... whatever. I'm not about to let it ruin my day again. I'm going out of town with him & my sister for the weekend, going to an amusement park that we visit every summer. I'm pretty pumped to have some time just me and my sister too.

*leaves extra hugs in the middle of the room*

Doikers 04-06-2010 06:48 PM

April *Hugs* That Cello looks impresive , am happy you're so Pleased with it :D How did your Dentists go?

*Hugs Taz* Hmm thats a visious cirsle with your father checking your arms , could you just expain to him how it doesn't help , easier said than done I know:S

*Crimson Huggle* I hope you have a nice , peaceful weekend.

*Kat Hugs*I'm sorry you have many things stressing you , I hope you sleep well tonight :) * Hugs Rosie*

*Hugs Kahlia*

*Cuddles Helen*

one_step_closer 04-06-2010 08:45 PM

Sorry I haven't been around so much. I've started a course with the Prince's Trust and i'm there from 10am to 3.45pm. I've also been having some computer problems.

Doikers 04-06-2010 09:34 PM

Thats no problems Lindsay , Way to go you doing a princes trust course :) And computer problems happen *Hugs*

*Hugs April* I'm sorry I was on WoW getting really frustrated becasue I need to kill 15 defias looters and pillagers and they just mob me , played for 75 minutes hardly level at all , any hints where a 17 can train? anyway thats why I missed you on FB sorry * Feels guilty*

I'm not great this evening I S.I. , I took great care in keeping it tidy , 1 tidy cut only to realise I have bought the wrong dressing and it wont stay on :( Sorry if this is too graphic say so and I'll remove it .

April I wish I could talk to you now I am so triggered you always help me.

Mustn't harm , Mustn't harm , Mustn't harm , Mustn't harm , MUST NOT HARM!!

Is anyone about?

PoisonedApple 04-06-2010 09:37 PM

I am about kind of, Mark... I don't think I'd be helpful though since I have to cover R's lunch at the front desk in a few minutes. *cuddles* You could PM if you like.

katnovia 04-06-2010 09:43 PM

I'm about and can stay that way. PM box open if you need.

katnovia 04-06-2010 09:51 PM

Taz: sleep schedule, what's that?! Miel was busy trying to protect me from shadow whilst I wrote my Rv..so I got really annoyied and told him to shove off, and then I realised that sarah was there too trying to put her own thoughts into my writing, so I told her to shove off. I got quite annoyied and said something like I wished they'd all go away, and unfortunatly rosie overheard and thought i meant her and started sobbing. So I was dealing with rosie when sarah decided to come on the VPW and post about the RV updates and she was all grump and depression so she was kind of bitchy and a very upset rosie came on and told her what for.

Mark: *hugs back* hazel sleeping better so far, so hopefully a better night ahead. I'll pass that hug on to rosie but she's asleep now. Sorry that you are having so much of a struggle tonight. Anything we/i can do? Lots of love and prayers coming your way.

Scarletdreamer 04-06-2010 09:52 PM

Mark, love, I'm on FB right now. So feel free to message me, email me, whatever. :) *huggles* I'm sorry that you're not doing too well, seems like a lot of us aren't... glad the wound wasn't too bad though. Hopefully you can get a better kind of dressing for it shortly. Um, you usually only train at even levels... the warrior trainer in Stormwind is in Old Town I believe. If you haven't gotten training in awhile you might want to do that - it's something you should do before you "ding" even levels. :) Yeah, the quest for the Defias pillagers/looters is REALLY hard... the trick is not to go all the way into Moonbrook but to kill the ones on the outside of it and wait for them to "respawn" (reappear). That's how my level 13 rogue did it... hehe... and my level 18 pally couldn't do it. Go figure. :-/


*cuddles everyone* Sorry for the lack of individual replies... am not feeling too well right now (anxious and really want to cut) and am nervous too because my mum printed off the application package to one of the places I'm going, and I'm going to be taking a look at that tonight. :-S So scared... you have to make at least a 9-month pledge and then it can be up to 12+ months there, at this particular place. But it's free, and it's not TOO far from home.... just a few states away. Heh. :-X

Anyway. So freaking tired. :'(

*hides in the warren to doze*

Thankyou for PM'ing me and giving me something to mull over . I hope you and Hazell have a good nights sleep :)
Goodnight April *hugs*
Goodnight the rest of the ward ,

*climbs out of crate*

*huge hugs for mark* my pleasure sweetheart, I just hope I have managed to be of some help.

I'm off to bed too, shame to waste hazel's good sleep patch. Nightnight ward.*grabs a mug of hot choccy and settles back down in crate*

Kahlia1981 04-06-2010 10:36 PM

*huggles/waves at all*

I apologise in advance for the lack of individual replies.
I had a really crap nights sleep last night. Normally I can handle bad nights, but I find it easier when it's not sleeping at all. Last night I just kept waking up. It wasn't because I was cold, or because I wasn't tired or any of the usual culprits. I just would wake up, then take quite a while to get back to sleep. I got out of bed 10 minutes before my alarm went off and decided that with things the way they were going I might as well stay up. *sigh*
I'm going to be all emotional and a pain in the arse today. I think I'll have to apologise to my housemate this morning. Just so that he knows that if I "bite his head off" it probably isn't really him - and the same if I burst into tears.
It would have been so much easier if I had just not slept at all . . .

SoMuchMore 04-06-2010 10:56 PM

hi everyone,

sorry i haven't been around lately. been thinking of all of you, i just dont feel like i could say anything helpful right now, so i guess i've been avoiding. didn't want anyone to think that i completely disappeared though b/c i care deeply about all of you. plus there is no need to bring in my own crap here b/c i can't even explain it, so i would just be saying vague things that people wouldn't understand. again i'm so sorry. i'm just in a really bad place.


Kahlia1981 04-06-2010 11:13 PM

Laura: *big hugs* I'm sorry you are in such a bad place at the moment. Don't worry about not being able to say anything helpful to us, your presence is more than enough. Please feel free to drop in when you can and just tell us how you are doing, or more if you feel you are able to, because I (I can't speak for the group) care about you and what is happening with you. I guess that all I want to say is that whenever you can drop by and see us, we'll be happy to see you, regardless of how you are doing sweetheart. You are a part of the VPW group, so we care about you. *huggles*

That goes for all of you by the way. We're all part of the VPW group and we do all care about what happens to each other. *offers everyone hugs and safe care packages as well as stuffed animals*

- Anyone think this place is going to be overrun by stuffed animals shortly??!

MammaMia 04-06-2010 11:20 PM

*cuddles everyone and wonders if her invisibility cloak is in full working condition, oh seems to be*

Sorry I've not really been round these last few days, been busy & in a better place, so tend to come on a bit less :S

Think I might go play the Sims, started playing it again last night :D I love how I go for weeks without playing it then spend weeks/months having to be on it everyday aha!!! Been playing it since I was 13 I think :/ Am 20 now, so a good 7 years. Maybe less/more hm. Just half wish I got it when it first came out, oh wells.

Kahlia1981 05-06-2010 12:03 AM

*hugs Hels* - Nice to see you. Good to hear you have been in a better place. You'll have to give me the details of your invisibility cloak ... I could really do with one at the moment lol.

Scarletdreamer 05-06-2010 12:48 AM

i'm really not in a good place right now...

...am alone and want to cut badly. :'( and can.

Laura *cuddles*

Kahlia1981 05-06-2010 01:59 AM

April: I'm sorry you aren't in a good place. Please try not to harm sweetheart. *offers cuddles if you can accept them*

Laura: *huggles* How are you doing?

Helen: Thanks so much for the secret details. :-) Hope you are still feeling good. *cuddles you*

Very, very tired. *sigh* I hate broken night's sleep. But I'll stop bitching about it. At least it's a little bit warmer. My fingers are only partly frozen - lol.

MammaMia 05-06-2010 02:05 AM

I'm okay. Worried about one of my best friends. Never do stop worrying about them really. Just more worried than usual.

Kahlia1981 05-06-2010 02:34 AM

Hels, I really know that feeling well sweetheart. Just remember, as hard as it can be, to take some time for yourself as well. *cuddles you*

risenfromperdition 05-06-2010 03:07 AM

Kitkat :) 05-06-2010 10:59 AM

DBT is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy... It's mainly used to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (but I don't have that).
Its supposed to help you get in touch with your emotions... or something... and help you control them, meditate, and brings in touches of Buddhism to the whole thing. It's also useful for mood spectrum disorders, as well as helping to beat the urges in self harming and is useful for survivors of sexual abuse.

I guess that's why she chose it for me then...

Doikers 05-06-2010 11:15 AM
