    Sometimes I literally feel like I could disappear and nobody would notice. Ugh. Not feeling so great right now.

    If anything, I get concerned anytime someone I usually see posting disappears. Makes me feel weird.

    Couple of things.

    my mother. shit bag. My cat Taz bit her cat Mimosa and she didn't check the wound for days until it abscessed. This is the second time a cat has an ailment go to far because she isn't paying attention. I apologized and told her to lock him in a room, there is no where else I can take him for now, and it sucks he's upset but I don't know what to tell her. he never did this stuff in our old house. So then she is texting me yesterday morning and I say "she doesn't look to upset about the cone and she looks better" and she send me two more texts so I don't respond.

    six hours later she starts reaming me for not asking how mimosa is and how terrible I am. Cool.

    Also, I had to order a new usb cable for my hard drive. Was trying to find some funny high school pictures. Found them, but also all of the old pictures of adventures mike and I had. We had so many more good times than bad. That's annoying. I miss all of that fun.

    I'm what they call a triple threat.

    A waste of time, space, AND money!

    Oof. i read throgh a lot of the posts here and wanted to respond, but I thought you might not know me enough. So I want to tell you some of my story. November was not such a good month for me. One night I was sitting there working, had a queue full of HITs but I was hurting. I sat there, feeling hurt and then realized it was my best friend's birthday (I miss him so much, he took his own life). He's not here and it hurts. So I went for a walk and thought and cried a lot. And I'm living with my dad right now, he's a good man. Several months ago he got diagnosed with prostate cancer. He gets hormone injections to slow the growth. And the cancer he has is very slow growing and he's okay over all. But I still worry, I mean how can you not?

    I'm not gonna lie, I'm just depressed.

    No huge reason. Just am. Cancelled my plans for the morning (I never do that), and seriously considering not going to the barn today.

    I probably will. But I don't know. I don't want to. I just feel overwhelmingly sad and unable to do things.

    Sorry you're depressed :( I think it's okay to take a mental health day or two. I know I have a tendency to let it go on too long and isolate though, so just be careful not to do that. :hug:

    Luckily, work is an incredibly social affair, and I would never call out of work for this. Well, haven't in the ten years I've been working, never say never.


    I'm not good at mental health, and I'm just reading and watching sad things and I'm pretty sure I've been crying for over an hour.

    ugh, I know how it is. That urge to listen to depressing music and morbid books. I had to make myself a hard rule that I'm not allowed to do that kind of stuff when I'm feeling down, because it will just start me on a terrible downward spiral that can last for weeks. Try not to overdo it with that kind of stuff :\

    Feeling defeated today. My job interview yesterday was a huge waste of time. I had a feeling it would be but I decided to try anyway, my fiance encouraged me to. Im starting to give up hope that I'll ever find a better job. I feel like I'm stuck here. I dont even have the time to take off to interview for other jobs, Im afraid if I do I'll lose this job and I need this job to survive. I want to make more money for things to be better for my kid. Im grateful for all the odd jobs Ive found bc they help a lot, if I didnt have them I would be living outside of my means. I dont make enough money at my day job to save for moving or save for a vacation or to even pay my babysitter. If I lost any of my "extra income" I would be screwed. I hate that. That I dont make enough money to survive. If I didn't have my fiance I would be 100% struggling.
    I also hate that Im not emotionally fulfilled at my job. I dont make an impact on anything, I dont help people. My organization sometimes helps people but they are also charging them tons of money to do it. Im under appreciated. I am not living up to my potential. Im doing a boring job with no hope of moving up. They just hired 2 new people and never even asked if I would be interested in having one of them.
    Sorry for the rant. I just needed a place to get this all out.

    Tried to step out of my comfort zone in 3 different ways today. Made 3 calls, which is hard enough for me, but I was blocked / failed at each one. Going to keep trying, but it's really discouraging.
