  1. You know what I really hate? When people participate in victim blaming. I don't think I'll be back here.
  2. I didn't see it as an attack post. I saw no name calling or anything of the sort. Obviously she felt that it was an attack on her and that should have been acknowledged. To be honest I would have preferred that Sal had actually googled the term "friendzone" and found that it is a rather offensive term that is used by many guys that proclaim to be nice but really really aren't. I would have preferred that the issue was handled completely in PM. It got out of hand when it was handled that way. I was very upset because stardreamer had got some hurtful messages off the main forum - enough that she felt like she needed to leave - and that's not okay. In any case, the mods are dealing with this now and I think we should leave it to them.
  3. I love night shifts. I guess it depends on the job, though. Oh usually I like my job. It's just I didn't get enough sleep last night and I feel worn out.
  4. I repectively disagree with you there Twilight Sky. My brain has a chemical imbalance, the people in my life for the most part are fine. As for me, I'm pretty tired, didn't get much sleep last night and now I'm at work. Oh night shift, you can be difficult.
  5. I think I see what Stardreamer was talking about. I'm thinking of leaving myself. I guess I see what happens when you stand up for people. Especially when you see them hurt and no one else seems to care.
  6. I'm not sure what your point is or if you're trying to stir up conflict, which is not a good way to be on a depression forum. I have been an active member on this forum for well over a year. I "like" posts to show that I have read them. I feel for everyone on here who is suffering. We are all suffering in one way or another. We already lost one member today because of a post that was made, which makes me very, very sad.I'm not trying to stir up conflict. My point is that you guys all ganged up on my friend and I was trying to show that there are two sides to every story. You guys missed one side by a mile and frankly it made me angry. I don't get angry often... But I've seen this type of behavior here before and I want it to stop.
  7. Havehope I'm surprised that you liked my post.... Makes me think you missed the point I was making. :/
  8. I'm so sorry that people didn't understand where you were coming from. I definitely understood it. People are so quick to jump to conclusions that they don't see how hurtful they are being to others. *hugs* I hope you have a chance to heal.
  9. In a relatively good mood. Connected with my gods earlier, and I feel much better for it. Will likely do that again given the chance.
  10. I don't think you were being "too sensitive" at all. I've not really gone to church but no one (except your therapist/doc) should take you on as a client and not a friend like that. I do hope you find what you're looking for though. :)
  11. This song might be triggering for some, but it's a very soothing song to me. Bit repetitive but I like it all the same. It focuses on the Norns from Norse mythology and I feel that the spinning, threading, and whatnot kind of invokes a feeling of change in me. Twist and Weave Twist and weave Spin and tie All the Threads We live and die Bind the threads Warp and weft Cut and trim the shuttle heft Bind the luck Weave the fate Stitch and knot to Create Twist and weave Spin and tie All the threads We live and die Sisters three We ask of thee Look after us Fatefully Twist and weave Spin and tie All the threads We live and die https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x98AKgoqkoo- if you'd like to check it out. :)
  12. I did some reading today - very interesting non-fiction book, "Playing With Fire: An Exploration of Loki Laufeyjarson" (no not the Marvel character) - haven't finished it yet but am about 66% through it - boo kindle app not having proper page numbers. >:( Just got back from exercising and I've been trying to eat in a healthier fashion. I don't feel like sleeping yet which is kind of eeeh, not good because I work at 2:30am. Oh well, I'll just caffeinate myself later before I go to work. I'm pretty happy in any case. So this is good - meds are working, I'm doing what I can to boost my self esteem, yep, let's just hope it stays this way.
  13. Be well JJ. I hope things turn out okay for you as tooth pain is definitely not fun at all. As for me, I'm not too tired right now - which is surprising as I've been up for a while now (I work the night shift). But I've been reading an excellent non-fiction book and I'd like to finish it sooner rather than later.
  14. Nice poems everyone. Is anyone doing National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November? I'm going to try doing it (as I did my first novel two years ago in April's Camp NaNoWriMo) this year. I know I can do it if I'm not doing anything else (I was recovering from hip replacement surgery then) I just want to see if I can balance NaNo and work this time around.
  15. Really liking the new (possibly temporary) set up at work. They're testing out a new stand-up computer station and you can sit at it too -gives me better posture and I can see people approaching the desk better. :) Yays!
  16. I hope things get better for you SFCG. As for me, I feel okay right now. Just okay. I took my meds earlier and I think they're still working. Taking a break from exercise today (will start again tomorrow - doing an every other day sort of thing) and I think that's a good idea. I'm still a little tired though.
  17. SFCG, I hope you got yourself to an emergency room. Sounds not good for you. As for me, I suppose I'll feel more productive once I have a shower - my towels are in the dryer right now, so I can't take a shower yet. >.< I need to exercise today, but I think I'll do that after the shower. I feel really tired right now.
  18. illuminotreally - I really don't think it was that harsh. I'm struggling too to be honest and frankly I found desperados first post a little insulting to people who have clinical depression (ie: depression that happens because of chemical imbalances in the brain) and are fine spiritually. You are right about words being easy to misconstrue. That said, I wish that desperados had mentioned in his first post that this was how he felt and that not everyone feels that way. I have to say that I had run my post by another friend and she thought it was fine. So people's opinions vary. Just like people's reactions to the original post.
  19. I found another thing that annoys me... when people say that there's something wrong with you spiritually and it's not a physical illness. :/
  20. Tired. I see my therapist today so I'm looking forward to that. I just have to get through work first though. Hoping to hear back from the job I applied to. It'd be nice to work during the day.
  21. Uh, it's a free forum. I'll post if I want to. I'm not telling you what to do, I'm telling you how I feel.
  22. Speak for yourself. I know that my depression is a physical problem (aka brain chemistry not being right). As for spiritually? I think I'm doing pretty well there. Better than physically in any case.
  23. I made a mini-shrine for Loki. :) I posted a picture of it on one of the Facebook groups I'm a member of and oh my gods someone wants me to make them one. Aaaah! Oh and here's a picture of the little shrine.
  24. *hugs offered to Els1e* I hope your appointment goes well. No worries about venting. That's what we're here for. I don't know whether my coworker is trying to be "helpful" but it's really annoying when she gives "advice". She's not my freaking supervisor. >.<
  25. Not so good. I forgot to take my meds when I got up this morning (before work - I work from 2:30am to 7:30am) and well, now my day is just going terribly so far - and it's only 4:25am. *sigh* I fail at life.
