Venting Stories

  • And here we go again.....

    Wednesday, March 20, 2013 | A Venting story

    Nothing surprises me anymore, but it always hurts just the same.  I keep trying to shut it all out.  Just tell myself to et over it.  But I can't turn it off.  I'm not numb.  I'm not "used to it" (even though I should be by now).  I still care.  It still hurts, every time.
    Today I was in a relatively good mood, H was off from work, and I always feel a little bet...

  • Little green monsters everywhere...

    Monday, July 22, 2013 | A Venting story

    Incredibly ironic. It seems like everywhere around me women are popping up with uber cute baby bellies and I'm just over here like hey look at what I did with this yarn... >_>
    All around me at work there are women finding out they're pregnant or going through IVF to get pregnant. What really bums me out is that last week my friend at work told me she was pretty sure she was pregnant. And th...

  • To sum things up...

    Sunday, October 13, 2013 | A Venting story

    I am a disabled, single mother, dealing with the needs of a 14 year old, bi-polar teenager, as well as financial bankruptcy/foreclosure of my home, and relocation, being thrown into single care of an elderly parent with severe medical issues and a home to care for and support while she is in a nursing home struggling to recover, while my two brothers struggle to manage to take care of themselves,...

  • Different feelings

    Sunday, January 19, 2014 | A Venting story

    I have so many different feelings about the things that go on in my relationship.  We've been together about 6 years now.  In the beginning, he was great.  Over time, he let his jerky, mean side show.  I've also realized that he's an addict, mostly to marijuana and Vicodin.  We've had many arguments over the years about his marijuana use only because of the amount of mone...

    Sunday, November 23, 2014 | A Venting story

    Feeling so sad and lost today.
    I went to get my morning coffee and the clerk somehow weaved into the conversation how blessed she feels every day and how she gives thanks every day for just another day.
    She can feel grateful I thought and all I do is pray for peace in my life and for injustices to be righted. 
    When I returned to my aging parent's home with my bag of "goodies", I tossed a bag...

  • Kind of Floundering

    Friday, October 23, 2015 | A Venting story

    Seems like I never take classes to further my career.
    They are very expensive anyway and at 53 what difference will it make if I waste 26K getting my masters degree or not. That's IF it's 26K in the first place.
    On the other hand, if I don't do something I can't stop feeling like I'm floundering.
    Trouble is deciding the direction to go.
    I know what I've been wanting to try. I just can't take the ...

  • Feeling like a failure

    Tuesday, June 7, 2016 | A Venting story

    So when my dad died, i promised to carry things on for him, like making the garden, growing flowers, and keeping mom happy.  I have done none of this, and with mom constantly being sick I feel like there is nothing I can do to make her happy.  I wanted to do anything I could to make my dad proud and it seems impossible...
    While he was sick, a so called friend of mine, kept needing finan...
