    So sorry your down, bud! Hopefully tomorrow it'll be at least a little better!!!

    Right. Moving ahead and getting better is all any of us can do!

    @RiverLight glad your feeling better, Riv! It will work out. I may have to move as well - maybe we can get a discount deal on a truck - as long as you do all the lifting - I'll tell you where to put the sofa!!! LOL I am alone most of the time and I am weird in that I like to watch movies with someone - someone to talk about them with. I rarely have that now, so I watch very few movies, but I just watched Spotlight and thought it was sad and amazing and empowering and depressing. Sort of like life, I guess. SEXUAL ABUSE TRIGGER ALERT! PLEASE DON'T READ ON IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HERE ABOUT SEXUAL ABUSE!!!! Fun fact - I was sexually abused as a boy by a park ranger in Algonquin park (twice - two summers running in the '70's). It was nothing real bad - he had me sleep with him and I awoke in the night each time with him holding my... Maybe it was because it wasn't the most horrific abuse, but this situation has never bothered me at all, or at least not even close to as much as my father's clear, unrelenting resentment of me and my mother's emotional distance and defense of him, and their overall expression that we children were nothing but a burden. I think that means, at least for me, that verbal abuse, neglect and poor nurturing are actually very viable and legitimate forms of abuse that should be categorized with some of the more reported on and pop culture represented issues that children endure. Again, that's how it seems, at least for me. I send copious hugs out to all my DF friends who were abused, in any way. I love you!!!

    Hugging us on the phone is adorable. I am chocked up. I am always on a laptop, which is harder to hug, but when I need to, I will Cameliia! :)

    babygoth, you write so eloquently and with so much heart and wisdom to others on here (and by the way, @Nisemono big hugs to you, my friend!). BG, I am hoping you can begin to treat yourself in that same compassionate way, because you deserve it!

    Hugs, evalynn!!

    I was just eating peanuts and one fell and I reached down to the sofa cushion to take advantage of the five second rule and scarfed down a cat treat. God, that was awful. But it made me laugh! Hugs, y'all!!!

    I'm sorry you're down FYL. But please stay with us. And welcome to DF. There are good people her. Best to you!!!

    Haha. Love the dentist guy. That toon was produced in Toronto, I might add. Along with Rush, Drake and The Weeknd, one of our claims to fame :) We're all misfits here, I think, JD. And, I know it can be lonely, but being a misfit in a culture as f'd up as this one is actually a sign of sanity and sound morals. I think Gaga, and others, have said embrace your freak. Be comfortable with yourself as different. There are others like us. In fact, we have found some here! Best to you, bud.

    Could not agree more. And, while there has always been anxiety and depression in humans, these are majorly on the upswing since our profit above all, dehumanizing, success worshipping culture has grabbed total control.

    Taking my new profile pic out for a test drive, like JD might take out a '66 GTO - LOL I am Ok, but who knows why? Sometimes it is inexplicable! Tomorrow is apt to be something different. Hugs and love to you all!!!

    I miss people who have left DF! I miss people who are being regulated (limited postings, I think). I hope for the best for all of you!

    I woke up embattled, anxious and panicked. It is so hard for me to read how much some of you (you know who you are) are hurting today. Sweet, peaceful, healing thoughts for all of you!!

    Forgive me, Nisemono, if I laugh out loud. Not at your suicidal thoughts, but at the truthful way you portray them. No, our hurt, pathetic, pain body voices are anything but eloquent. Mine has been reciting the same old boring story - basically, Brian, you suck s***balls - for the last 40 years. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Maybe it ought to read a book or something? Perhaps it's time to tune these losing voices out! Big hugs!
