It's supposed to be a good thing

Posted by Geek in Geek's Blog, 22 August 2014 · 10 views
interview, panic

I just declined to answer a phone call from a recruiter for a position we discussed this morning. His voicemail/email says the company is interested. They want to schedule a phone screen on Monday morning. I'm crying and panicking and don't know what to do.

The position is a 6 week contract. Technician not engineer. 33% paycut. I'm not sure how to manage...

8/22/14- Happiness

Posted by larali in larali's Blog, 22 August 2014 · 59 views

Good morning.

Called mom this morning and she was telling me about some natural stuff that is supposed to help brain function. She does a lot of research on natural health because my sister is sick (MS, and a serious progressive liver disease) and because of my issues. I am not big on taking natural supplements other than vitamins, because I don't know...

A Second Interview and Food Pics

Posted by shesellsseashells in My Life by the Shore, 22 August 2014 · 65 views

I have a second interview on Tuesday! Thanks to all for your good thoughts. Whereas I felt very confident about the first interview, I am scared out of my mind for the second. I am working on pretending that I feel confident in hopes that it will rub off.

I've been cooking a lot this week, much to my mother's joy, and thought I'd share some pics with...

Am I ready for this?

Posted by confused in confused's Blog, 22 August 2014 · 21 views

We told my daughter she could date when she is 16. She turned 16 on the 10th and last night she asked if she could date one of her classmates. He is a nice boy. Neither of them can drive yet. She said he has asked her. She doesn't know where they would go. They went to a dance last year, which seemed like a date to me, but they stayed with their friends.

self esteem, transference, sad and 2 more...

Ok, does anyone else think this weird for a therapist? I had a session today with my T and we were talking about this girl who text bombed me that I decided to drop as a friend, mostly because she would text me constantly and then make plans with me then flake EVERY TIME. I got sick of it.

Anyways I was talking about this with my therapist when she got t...

"Relatively Normal"

Posted by xmo in xmo's Blog, 21 August 2014 · 56 views

I have reached that mythical plateau which my therapist and I are now referring to as, "relatively normal." My meds have me evened out. I haven't been this mentally stable in the fifteen years since my major problems started, it seems.

This is a sort of "good news/bad news" situation. As, as of late, I have been nearly forgetting to take my medication. Y...

Quitting my job...or not?

Posted by StormBeforeCalm in It's just the storm before the calm, 21 August 2014 · 76 views

Well, I was all set to quit my job in mid-September, right after I come back from vacation. I had sent an email to my manager, asking basically why I'm not doing more publication work when I'm a technical writer, and I got a no-answer answer. Turns out she forwarded my email to the guy in charge of the company and he read it and assumed I was ready to qui...

Relationship struggles

Posted by SoaringRaven in Raven's Ramblings, 21 August 2014 · 77 views
fat, weight, relationships

I'm not thin. I'm not fit. I'm fat, and for the most part I'm okay with my body. However, the fact that I am so out of shape bothers me.

I want to exercise, but there's something blocking me from doing it, and it's both frusterating and embarrassing. Embarrassing because it shouldn't be an issue, and frustrating because it's getting in the way of me bein...

Wishes are horses

Posted by writehellarandomshiny in The Real World Editorial Of SpriteandShiny, 20 August 2014 · 53 views

I don't want to be normal, I want to be stable.
I want to do almost nothing like a normal person.
But I would like to be able to watch television like a normal person without randomly triggering panic attacks.

Does that make me selfish? Maybe.
Fuck it. Oh well.

Move-in day tomorrow.

i've been thinking about ending it all- my life feels like its going nowhere and im worthless and poor and people use me and i feel like a burden. mainly its money. next year my benefit stops and is replaced by a student allowance when i return to university. the loss of $100 and my inability to find a job means that i can no longer keep living with my bo...

More life lessons

Posted by s4ndm4n2006 in s4ndm4n2006's Blog, 20 August 2014 · 80 views

Life lessons, yeah, you know the kind. They come at you when you are typically not prepared and thus, the reason they are called "lessons". They are things that come when you think you have it figured out at least to some extent and most of the time bring the grim reality that you really don't know wtf you're doing still. No matter the amount of life's...

I Think I've Had Enough

Posted by empty inside in Everything That's Part Of Me, 20 August 2014 · 67 views

i know getting better takes time and effort. i know it can't just be fixed in a second. but still, i'm not quite sure weathering out this storm is worth it, not for me anyway.

today my counselor was telling me that all this time, I've been pushing my emotions down, choosing not to feel them, as she put it, I've been putting them in a bucket and then put...

5 Years Ago

Posted by empty inside in empty inside's poetry, 20 August 2014 · 63 views

5 years ago

A 13 year old girl awoke
Thinking that everything
Was as it always had been
But still, something didn't feel right

5 years ago

The shock of it all
Numbed the 13 year old girl
She walked around in a daze
Everyday was the same

5 years ago

The flowers piled up
The condolences overwhelmed
The 13 year old...

Restless

Posted by Likeabowlof0ranges in Likeabowlof0ranges' Blog, 20 August 2014 · 81 views

I don't know what I want to do and it's really getting to me. I'm depressed and agitated which is probably my least favourite kind of depression. I know that I'm being bitchy and snappy at others, but I don't realise it quick enough to stop it. So I usually just shut my mouth and hope for the best.

I got dressed, and for once I was like, success! I look...

Yes, it's still bothering me

Posted by BlurredBoundaries in BlurredBoundaries' Blog, 19 August 2014 · 194 views

I just can't stop thinking about the guy at the gas station today.He came up to me and said "Has anyone ever told you you got a rugged look? You look like you could kill someone! I saw you and I was like wtf?"

I tried Googling the word rugged because I wasn't even sure what it means, and it seems only men are generally considered rugged? I take offense t...

Tired

Posted by Wonderful.Cheese in Wonderful.Cheese's Blog, 19 August 2014 · 75 views

Another day, another dollar. Or so they say. I used to say that in my head all the time when I finished work. I hope one day I can work again. I miss working. I'd give anything to be able to work again. I miss the social and financial and sense of accomplishment aspects. But it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon.

I'm tired. I will go to bed a...

Called in again

Posted by chickenonaraft12 in Forecast for tomorrow: Fog likely, 19 August 2014 · 56 views

At my work our attendance is based on the accrual of points. You call in sick or go home early unscheduled, you gain a point. You're late, every half hour you gain .25 points. at 12.5 points you're fired. Every 6 months your points reset back to zero.

Today I called in. Again. This puts me at 11.5 points. Thankfully my points reset on Sept. 15.

But stil...

Posted by Cherriichan in Cherriichan's confusing place, 19 August 2014 · 80 views

I am alone. I am alone in a very dark room, taunted by my vices, my cruel thoughts that never see the light of day. Relentlessly, they never stop. Not once.

Pathetic. Useless.

They keep on laughing at me. It never gets any easier, it just gets harder and with every attempt I make to prove them wrong, I end up falling back down again. I wonder, at thi...

linguistic convention

Posted by Chimako in It's Where My Demons Hide, 19 August 2014 · 58 views

if the linguistic convention were true, you'd still have to pry my lithium out of my cold dead hand.

I was on paxil for 4~ years. It was a complete bitch to come off of.

Dire rear made me stop eating, not eating made my meds not work, which made me crazy.

I have an industrial 4 tier spinny thing on my bathroom vanity where I keep my meds.
