    Hope things work themselves out.. Is your friend going to be alright? I hope so :)
  5. How do I stop this self-destructive cycle?

    Are you dealing with depression? And please, 30 years old, kinda give yourself a break here. That's very young. I think a therapist could help you break out of this cycle, or at least help you be motivated and take that first step. Something is causing you to not go outside, don't beat yourself up about it. In fact, being angry at yourself and disappointed just makes you feel worse, right? So, look up some nearby therapist, explain how you are feeling and see if they can give you a consultation (then meet weekly which will get you out of the house). If you're not insured, look up city agencies or community centers that offer free therapy/counseling. Maybe even someone who specializes in employment. I do agree bringing a child into this situation wouldn't be a good idea. Maybe that's not baby fever but your fever to get out there and live your life. I wish you all the best, and I believe with a therapist, you'll be taking that first step. *hugs*

    Kinda sick. dizzy. see doc tomorrow and i know i'm gonna get a flippin lecture. THIS CANNOT BE LIFE.
  7. Anytime hon. Yes I do wish I'd gotten therapy at the beginning of my problems, and stuck with it. Over the years I've cut my hair for all kinds of reasons, none very good reasons--and I always end up deeply regretting the cut. Yes I do know the pain of feeling like, no one is there and no one cares or listens. Big hugs right back at'cha. I hope your Wednesday is treating you well. I hope my responses have been helpful, and encouraging. Thank you right back at'cha. :) *hugs*

  9. What Really Bugs You (7)

    my brother who treats our mother like she's his cook, personal assistant, grocery shopper, bill payer, bill writer, laundress, Oh she's fine with all this *growl*
  10. You sound like such a kind human being. You would benefit so much from therapy. And I do want you to enjoy being in college with all those college experiences, not have anxieties ruining your day/time there. Thank you--Please don't cut your hair, I did it, I've done it, and it takes a while to grow back and not to mention--longer hair is easier to deal with (least for me it is, pull it back in a ponytail). Yes I think we're stronger than we know, but sometimes I don't feel that strong at all. Yes you should be enjoying college. My Sunday was okay, thank you. And hugs right back'atcha :)
  11. Whoa a college guidance counselor was dismissive, making assumptions it's just about a boy? Hmm. I'm not feeling that. And honey it was so long ago when a boy I liked took advantage, thank you for your kind words but I'm okay. Way in the past. Yes guys can be jerks but so can girls. I'm not that strong, at all, I go seek help, whether a therapists or psychologists. I don't stop until I know the person I'm seeking help from can and will help me. Yes please talk to a therapist and make sure nothing else is going on inside of you. Also, she/he should help you reach out to friends, join a sorority, be friends with both guys and girls and have your college experience be the most fulfilling time of your life right now. These are those years where you build connections and contacts and lifelong friends. Since you've felt depressed for years, why not look into what's going on and have a therapist help you? It'll be the best thing you've ever done for yourself. You take care, and be good to yourself *hugs*. Have a lovely Sunday.
  12. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Thanks hon. I'm googling, they sound awesome! :)
  13. Thanks, yep, sounds like the school I went to. And guys do love a chase, then they catch the girl (she's now into him), but the pursuit is over and he's bored...and he's o.u.t. LOL. Guys, their a funny bunch! :0
  14. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Sound of Music soundtrack (Julie Andrews singing)
  15. You sound completely normal, with some issues of insecurities that most young people have and I'm assuming most young people are suppose to feel some uncertainties? First, I would reach out to a guidance counselor about the way you feel. you could just use some time with a therapist to see if you're dealing with depression. One of my biggest mistakes was believing that getting a boyfriend or a boy to notice when I felt so insecure--believing a boy noticing me will make me feel better or feel pretty. In fact, it was easy for that boy to take advantage because I was so super insecure. If this happens, please don't beat yourself up about it. I did, and it just made things so bad. But you, have a chance to feel better on your own, get yourself together before you are together with someone else. Talk to a therapist. Please. Reach out to your guidance counselor, every college kid is assigned one (last I heard). Reach out to your family? A pastor? Family doctor? What you are feeling is normal, but it shouldn't make you this unhappy. These are precious years, enjoy them. You deserve to be happy
