  • Home watching movies and I just made myself an amazingly comforting dinner of ramen (wait!) with organic corn off the cob and kimchii. The secret is to throw out the seasoning packets of doom and add fresh miso, powdered garlic, rice vinegar and a wee bit of butter. Tiny bit. It was so wonderful. So comforting. I saw a nutritionist a few months ago, worried about how little/how sporadic I was...

I have 10 weeks left of this...

    Relapse....

    I realized I haven't been on in a few days. Not that anyone knew. Anyway, I went to a rehab facility for 5 weeks and just got out a few weeks ago. I've been doing great and it was so worth it! However, the last few days I've been having suicidal thoughts again. I want to break this cycle but I can't help feeling worthless and that everyone would be better without me. When I went to the facility,...

    Can't handle it anymore!

    Can someone please tell me how to end my life in a peaceful manner. It sounds like I'm joking but I'm dead serious. Ive come to terms with the fact that I'm emotionally unstable and it's been this way since I was 15, I'm 42 now. I've had enough. No lectures please just help me die in a peaceful manner since there's no emotional peace in my life

    After having a good couple weeks I feel like I hit rock bottom today. I needed to get out of the house and I went to to the casino and lost absolutely everything in my account. I have no excuse because I knew what I was doing was wrong but I didn't care. I just kept withdrawing and blowing it faster and faster. I didn't think I was gonna hit a jackpot or anything either. One of the best...

    Isolating yourself

    Home. Just got back from closing my shop. I intentionally bypassed an invitation from my husband to go to a friend's (very casual) wedding tonight so I could stay home. Now my sons and my husband are there and I just started watching a show. Eating pie and ice cream. About to load my bong...I find smoking pot very relaxing. Going to the wedding sounds like the worst thing ever. I've just been in...

    Pregnant and sad?

    I find it odd that a beautiful thing contradicts an ugly nature.You know, it feels like I'm losing touch with myself more and more.I've done a lot of bad things throughout my pregnancy. (I am just beginning my 3rd trimester, first child)Not as of late. But the carelessness has begun to settle in.It feels like I'm walking with my head on backwards.I feel guilty and yet I don't feel much of...

At least here people support me...right?I looked in the mirror today and my reflection made me sad, I have acne, its not as bad as some people I have seen, but its still there, and I keep thinking people don't wanna be seen with me, or I'm ugly and I'll never get a good...

Well basically i did not tell him as we are married out of community of property and work for my own money and pay my own debts, He found out...

  • When did you last feel proud or happy about your own self? What were you doing back then? What did you accomplish?For me it was today. I finally took a full meaningful shower. After weeks of stepping into the shower , pouring some water on myself then just not feeling like it and stepping out , I FINALLY DID IT. Might seem silly , but it means a lot to me.
