Saying that we are "fine" when we're obviously not is a normal reaction. We all say we are fine when we aren't. It's the "keeping up appearances". And it's normal to get sick of it. Even when we know that we do it ourselves. Maybe we just need to cut ourselves and each other a little slack and make a pledge to be honest in the here-and-now. You know, in this safe place we say how we really are? I don't know, just a thought. I'm not trying to criticise anyone - really I'm not. But it's hard to support when someone can't or won't tell you how they really are doing. Any suggestions or ideas anyone?

I quite agree with you Kahlia, I think we are all guilty of doing this, particularly at the moment & it can get frustrating. I think we should all pledge to stop saying it, or at least in this thread :(

i'm sorry... :(

i can't organize it. we don't have the money. i live in pennsylvania, she lives in indiana, and he and his family live in texas. they're probably paying for her flight tickets or whatever. i can't organize it. the u.s. is much too big. and we're too poor. especially when jarrod forgets to collect his unemployment. >:(

sorry. i'm bitching about things i shouldn't be bitching about. it shouldn't matter. none of this should matter.

i just updated r/v if anyone cares to read.

sorry. :(

If it's upsetting you or affecting you emotionally then you have every right to moan or whatever. It's still important to you..

Scarletdreamer 21-05-2010 01:35 AM

thanks hels... :(

*hides in a deep, deep hole* :'(

*cuddles tight*

I spy Kahlia too

On following Kahlia's note (and Helen's agreeance)... I don't know how I feel. I'm not okay. I'm not fine.

The following content has been hidden - Reason : Ranty & somewhat triggering SI/OD
I skipped out on a chance to go to the movies and hang out with one of my best friends because of my mood. I'm getting angry over the little things. I've had the house to myself for the past 3 hours and can't seem to escape my own mind. And I realized that my mom took away my blades, probably during the day while I was at work... couldn't find them when I needed them. The joys of having a car though, I can drive over to the hardware store tomorrow morning and get new ones. Leaving for camp tomorrow with my family, a whole 3 days with them. Yippee. I just want to curl up under my blankets and drift away to nothingness. It's taken all my willpower to not OD tonight and have them come home and find me dead. I don't know how to tell this to my counselor or my doctor without them thinking I'm crazy.


*hugs Kat, Hannah, Hels, Kahlia & April*
*leaves spare hugs on the table for anyone else who needs them*

*sits* any one here

wildly insane 21-05-2010 08:20 AM

*hugs Julie* how are you?
*hugs Heather* i think that's right? you're not pathetic at all, what's up?
*hugs Taz* sorry your feeling so **** right now *cuddles gently* well done on not ODing. I couldn't work out if yippee was sarcastic and you didn't want to go camping with your family or whether you were actually looking forward to it - sorry, I'm tending on the former but not 100%
*hugs Kahlia* I'll sign the pledge. So how are you?
*hugs April* I'm sorry hun, that sounds really tough. is there anyway you can save a little each month and make a decision to make the trip/invite them to stay next year (or when you have enough) and then you have that to look forward to as well? I know money may have other priorities, it's just a thought.

Soooo...I'm running uber late and I haven't made my lunch yet :P am in quite an anxious and panicky mood today, but I'll get through it.

Take care guys and leaving a bucket of hugs on the table for you to pick any of your choosing, there's plenty for everyone, that and some pancakes with blueberries (hope you like blueberries) and maple syrup mmmm... calorie free of course
