*Hugs Helen* I know how that is. Not with my daughter, obviously, I don't have one, but to miss people I mean. How some nights, or days, are just worse than others. Sometimes it's alright, you can cope, but other times you just need them so much and feel like the grief and pain is just going to consume you completely. Especially around Christmas.

MammaMia 18-12-2010 11:53 PM

SO true Lia. So true. *hugs*

FlyingNy 19-12-2010 12:01 AM

I just have to do something to take my mind off it when that happens. Not that it's that easy, but I can try. I know shutting things out is only a temporary solution, but it's all I know how to do. Sigh. I hope you're alright *squishes*.

MammaMia 19-12-2010 12:04 AM

*squishes* I'm okay, trying to keep busy. Need my bestie but she went to bed early as she got really pissed with her computer :(

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 12:27 AM

Hi errybody I'm back. -hugs ward-

-spots ian and waves- how you be today?

FlyingNy 19-12-2010 12:31 AM

*Hugs Kitty* Hey :) How are you?

*Hugs Helen* You can always PM me if you need to.

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 12:48 AM

-hugs lia back- I's alive. I's kinda proud of myself for last night. I stood up for myself last night and told off someone who I thought was my friend, but she wasn't. She was just poison to me. I was kinda bitchy but I don't have to worry about her bein in my life anymore. And I somehow managed to make it through the night without cutting. Dont know if I will be able to make it through today without cuttin though... how is you?

Cazki 19-12-2010 12:49 AM

I'm not great but it doesnt matter, have felt a little isolated but i know everyone is struggling.

MammaMia 19-12-2010 12:51 AM

*hugs Lia, Kitty & Ian*

Ian, just because others are struggling doesn't mean you can't ask for support or discuss whatever's happening for you...

FlyingNy 19-12-2010 12:52 AM

That's brilliant Kitty :) I get the impression you sometimes find it hard to stick up for yourself, and it's extra brilliant that you managed not to cut after that as well :)

*Hugs Ian* I'm here and I'm not struggling atm if you want to vent. That's what this ward is here for, we all help each other.

risenfromperdition 19-12-2010 12:53 AM

*agrees with helen*

*curls up sleepily*
theres nothing on tvvvv

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 01:10 AM

Ya I redressed wounds and realized hey are ok so Im not freaking out about that anymore. -smiles- I don't stick up for myself bery much...I am the type of person that will take the abuse until I can't handle it anymore, then I explode. My husband and I had a kitty evaluation last night and I figured that out. I just hate having to be a bitch and I feel that if I were to stand up for myself I would be. -shrugs-

I am kinda ok at the moment, though. Bored more than anything. But at least not 100% triggered right now.

Whats up, Ian? -hugs if ok- I know you dont really know me Im kinda new but I am a good listener if you need to rant. I might not know what to say but I can try my best. -smiles-

-looks over at heather- you ok?

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 01:13 AM

I gots to go for a little bit. Should be back soon. Gotta go get a little bit of grocery shopping done, thankfully not too much. -hugs ward- I'll be back before ya know it. -smiles and walks out-

FlyingNy 19-12-2010 01:21 AM

*Hugs Kitty* Have fun :) I was about to say 'but it's 20 past 12 in the morning' but then I remembered you live in the US.

MammaMia 19-12-2010 01:31 AM

I'm listening to Panic! at the disco haha :P Haven't listened to them since my school days....


PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 02:13 AM

I'm back. And even if it was 20 past 12 in the morning I could still have gone shopping the store down the street is open 24/7.

-hugs helen- glad you found something again that you enjoy.

Anyone still around? -looks around-

MammaMia 19-12-2010 02:23 AM

I'm around <3

Been making videos on facebook with a friend & so has she to me. If that even makes sense? Quite distracting really.

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 02:39 AM

Good. Glad to hear that you found something to do that keeps you distracted. -smiles-

MammaMia 19-12-2010 02:57 AM

Yeah, need to get some sleep soon though lol. Wonder if I'll have nightmares again :(

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 03:32 AM

:( I can relate to having nightmares hun I had to deal with them for like a month and a half before I could get any sleeping pills! Do you have any night time cold medicine or anything you could take to make you sleepy? Before I had the meds I took nyquil (only could take it a couple of times, because I didn't have very much) and I realized that it helped me sleep through the nightmares and they weren't as bad. Now that I have the sleeping meds it helps a lot more because I am able to stay asleep. -hugs helen-

risenfromperdition 19-12-2010 03:49 AM

<3 :) *yawn*

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 03:57 AM

Hey heather, how are you? -hugs heather-

risenfromperdition 19-12-2010 04:05 AM

Im ok, sleepy though

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 04:07 AM

Awe. I'm not sure what time it is there, but could you sleep? If not, do you have coffee you can drink? Anything with caffeine in it?

risenfromperdition 19-12-2010 04:09 AM

Its 10pm but ehh

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 04:13 AM

Maybe you should try to go to sleep then? Even if it's early, you're sleepy. Could be good to get a little extra sleep? Maybe if you can't get to sleep right now, search out some good music and listen to it, maybe watch a good movie?

risenfromperdition 19-12-2010 04:22 AM

Might watch a movie :)

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 04:28 AM

Mmmmk -makes heather some popcorn and hands it to her along with pillows and fuzzy blankies to snuggle with during the movie- snacks and snuggling with something fuzzy always make movies better -nods-

risenfromperdition 19-12-2010 04:35 AM

*takes cuz evrything in ward is cal free :p* yay fuzzy blankie though :)

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 04:37 AM

Yup everything is cal free your right tis a magical ward -nods-

I know, right? I love fuzzies! <3 xx

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 04:59 AM

Hmmm...is it weird to feel like you need to be creative, but you can't think of what you want to do to be creative, and searching for things stresses you out and causes you to become triggered? :s Does this even make sense? lol it does in my head but ya..

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 05:40 AM

-spots felicia and waves- how you be?

Kahlia1981 19-12-2010 10:06 AM

Hello all

*hugs all who can accept & waves at others*

Sorry for the absences again but have been ... not so well. Housemate is also not so well so been taking him to docs to make sure he gets med changes and stuff. *shrugs* Joys of the mentally ill with no psych docs. Trying to do a lit review that's due in about 3 weeks but struglling a bit - probably cos of little sleep. Is very hot here which isn't helping. Bit over the heat. Also big storms in the early hours of the morning waking us up. Meh. *sigh*

PsychoKitty2010 19-12-2010 10:11 AM

-waves to kahlia- hi I'm Kitty, and I'm psycho. I like to think of myself as the reject of the litter. -smiles

sorry to hear you haven't been doing well. :( hope things get better for ya..

Doikers 19-12-2010 11:12 AM

*Hugs Nicole*

*Hugs Lia*

*Hugs Heather*

*Hugs Ian*

*Hugs Kitty*

*Hugs Felicia*

*Hugs Kahlia* I'm sorry you're not sleeping well :(

Sorry I didn't do individuals , too many pages to address you all but I am thinking of you all and sorry if I missed anyone:S

Doikers 19-12-2010 11:38 AM

I've not yet drunk my 2nd cup of coffee this morning and I just want to go back to bed , I have to go out and pay my bills in a bit , maybe the fresh air will perk me up *Sips on Coffee*

Doikers 19-12-2010 12:59 PM

Well..... I paid my bills , did some grocery shopping , went into blockbusters but resisted the urge to buy any DVD's ( I have loads I haven't watched) It's slippy out in places but at least I got out . I HATE not paying my bills on time despite the fact that I'm over 100 in credit for my Gas I think .The Dixie Chicks came on my MP3 player whilst I was walking they're cheerful :) then depressing . So I get perked up and then relate and then repeat .

How are you all this lunchtime?

MammaMia 19-12-2010 02:18 PM

*hugs wardies*

Doikers 19-12-2010 02:20 PM

*Hugs Helen* How are you today Helen?

MammaMia 19-12-2010 02:40 PM

*hugs Mark* I'm okay, having a bad day with my anaemia though :(

Doikers 19-12-2010 03:36 PM

*Hugs Helen* I'm sorry your Anaemia is playing up on you today :(

nicole94 19-12-2010 04:28 PM

*hugs everyone* sorry about last night guys, my power cut off cause of the snow, so i went to bed. I'm ok, was just feeling very low last night. Ended up SI'ing :(

Doikers 19-12-2010 04:39 PM

*Hugs Nicole* I'm sorry you ended up S.I.'ing last night :( How long was your power out for? How are you feeling today hun?

SparkleKitten 19-12-2010 05:25 PM

Hey guys. Having a rough day today. Well had a bad evening yesterday and SI'd. And today I'm having really strange thoughts. Its odd, because this hasn't happened in a while but I was laying awake in bed this morning and it suddenly hit me that lots of animals had died to keep me alive and I'm not worth that... How am I supposed to get over the guilt of that? :/ My fiance really isn't understanding of it at all, he doesn't seem to care about the animals that died and has even antagonised it this morning going on about how the horse jumping horses would be better used as food as its a better cause and its driving me mad and I don't know what to do with myself. Sounds silly I know but I feel so guilty and low right now... *hides away in corner*

Doikers 19-12-2010 05:46 PM

*Hugs Sarah* I'm sorry you're having a rough time of it :( I totally understand the whole animals dieing to help me thing , I am a strict vegetarian and even go to the point of pouring my anti-depressants out of their capsules because the capsules are made of Gelatin and thats made from cows/pigs/fish , then swallowing the bits of anti-depressants that was inside the capsule. I don't like the fact that even though I'm not eating the Geletin it's still made into the meds for me.

SparkleKitten 19-12-2010 05:49 PM

Yeah, my fiance is of the opinion that if it doesn't contain meat then its not a meal and even snacks should have a meat aspect, so he's not very understanding right now. Glad I have the ward. I really am. I don't know what I'd do without you guys *hugs Mark*

Doikers 19-12-2010 05:51 PM

*Hugs Sarah* I know , I'd be lost without my wardies :S

SparkleKitten 19-12-2010 05:55 PM

I just don't know what to do with myself right now :( I don't know why I feel like this, I feel horribly guilty. Almost sick with guilt. Ugh. >:(

Doikers 19-12-2010 05:58 PM

OH umm , could you look into how you could help some animals?

MammaMia 19-12-2010 06:01 PM
