  2. @Epictetus Snowed in? Is that normal there? It is unusually warm where I am, tbh. I wonder if we'll get a revenge snow storm late January! On my mind; I cried so much it looks like I got punched in the face. I was hoping me and my relative could make up for 2019 but after being refused to being spoken to on the phone to wish a happy new year, I can take a hint. It hurts though and my hubby asked why I cared so much. Simply because this is a close relative and I don't understand why she hates me that passionately. But yeah, I am done, too. Can't say I didn't try!
  3. What's on my mind right now is two things: 1st; How could someone hate me that much? I mean, in all the years together there has to be a reason.... right? 2nd: Hiccups? ... now? Really? It's 3AM here and my night was rough enough as it was....but sure give me hiccups. Feck you, too 2019
  4. 2018 was pretty awesome for us. But wow did it end on a bad note.
  5. Christmas Chronicles It's like when I was little and watched that movie with Dudley Moore, except this one has 2018 CGI. It is all the emotions! So much yes for this movie!
  6. Almost Christmas. I am on my Netflix Christmas cheese quest and this got recommended and boy, it did not disappoint. Looking for anything that'll give you a laugh, go for this one! Any movie that has me laughing every 10 minutes or so or choke on my drink, gets the thumbs up from me!
  7. Dumplin' I am assuming Netflix recommended this due to me clicking on loads of terrible cheesy Christmas flicks recently. But I spotted Jennifer Aniston in it, so I figured I couldn't wrong after my string of flings with cheese. It's good. Entertaining where it needs to be, kinda sad where it needs to be, plus the bonus is you don't need too much brain power to watch and follow it and it all comes to an ending where you might think... 'Noooo, not yet! I am not done yet!' Might be a bit of a chick flick, but if you have netflix and you're looking for something to zone out to and giggle every now and then, this is your pick!

  9. I did not give up on my cheese flick quest and The Princess Switch won so far, with Parmesan on top! It's even funnier after a few adult beverages ... Just sayin' 🙊
  10. I figured over the weekend, 'Let's watch a cheesy Xmas movie' and Netflix recommended 'The holiday calendar'. Don't do it. Stay away from it. I watched it til the end because I was hoping the cheese factor would save it, but it did not. It was an insult to cheesy flicks. Just my opinion.

    Family member: 'Family is family, you don't get to pick them.' Me: 'I agree. But if this was an acquaintance or potential friend, I would have walked away years ago. Quite frankly I am done... ..I can only try so many times'. 😥
  12. You'd have to train your brain to use healthy coping skills and replace the way you respond now. It will not be a quick fix and it takes practice until it becomes second nature. But it is a reachable goal.
  13. I thought it was both a blessing and a curse. I followed DBT for a year, which included a weekly group meeting, a weekly individual meeting, phone coaching and homework. It was insanely intense. I graduated and after that still had monthly / 2 monthly appointments with my individual therapist. I finished the course 2 years ago and I am still struggling through life. But I do use much better coping skills now than I did before I went through DBT. So as much as it has helped me learn how to cope better, it also opened up a part of my brain that is constantly aware of my actions, both good and bad. Kinda like a permanent voice in the back of my head and as much as that sounds good it will add to your struggles. But anyone who has the chance to follow DBT, go for it and shake off judgements quickly. Dive in and learn those skills. Just be prepared for battles in your head.
  14. Anthrax. Because I just saw them live and they were on my bucket-list. They were awesome.
