Yes, he's always had low self esteem and dealt with depression, but it's never been this bad. But Lyme disease has it's own mess of problems and tends to intensify depression.

Things have been better lately.
I'm so glad he saw the doctor and is now on a better path. *hugs*

I came here to post what I can't on FB or Twitter:

When you're the biggest loser in your therapy group, it might be time to throw in the towel.

Sorry for the self-indulgent, self-pitying post, but that's where my head is right now.

I do not think you are the right person or in the right position to judge who in a group of people getting the help and support to move their life in a more positive direction is a 'looser'.

I suspect none of you are and know for a damn fact that you are not.

Now, don't go and make me have to look over my glasses at you.

*hugs* hang in there, we are here for you.

Aunty Smaug looking over her glasses always cheers me up.

The women in my therapy group are not losers (they're amazing strong women with lives and people who love them), so it's stupid to call myself the biggest loser there. I just feel like a useless lump, a waste of space. It'll pass, and I'm trying to be useful in my actions even though I feel useless.

Argh!

*runs around like a chicken with its head cut off*

Bro and his umpteenth wife are visiting early next year. Do not want to see them! I need the strength to turn around and walk out as soon as he starts shooting his mouth off and being controlling and nasty. It sneaks up on me, though, because I switch back into little kid mode when he's around.

Are they visiting you or your area and you feel you should meet? You do not have to either host/meet/put up with anyone you don't want to.

As politely as you want to, tell him to bugger off.

I'm with Smaug here, though god knows I know how difficult it is to tell family to bugger off.

Thanks. Maternal unit is really cranking things up lately, so this just added to it. Time will tell if this last is just another in a series of lies and drama or if she is really dying. My apologies and sympathies to anyone who has lost their mother. My relationship with mine is seriously fubared due to chronic abuse (which shall not be detailed here) and her narcissism and pathological lying.

Weeble, there's no need to apologize for a single thing you said. Everyone's pain is different, and everyone's pain is real.

Your family is causing you pain, and I send you hugs and love, because you should be getting hugs and love, because you're a wonderful person. From some of the things you've said over the years, I think it's a testament to how strong and resilient you are that you've come to us with an open heart, despite the family you grew up with and the challenges you faced. That takes a lot of courage.

I hope that whatever happens with your Mom, you're able to close the door on that part of your life, and protect yourself and your open heart as much as possible during the process. And while you're dealing with it, remember that you have a community here (well... mostly on Facebook now, I guess) that cares about you.

*HUGS*

This is perfectly worded, and I'd repeat every damn syllable of it (except for the facebook bit, because I bloody hate facebook. Twitter, people, twitter more!)

This bit need repeating:

Yay! I'm crying 30 minutes before I have to be at work because I've been double scheduled four times! YAY!

I love my job but this is crazy-making. If I could clone myself I would, but the technology just isn't there yet.

I love PMS. *continues crying*

aaand to top it off, the closest person in my life has just disclosed something that has shattered my trust and will probably end a 14+year relationship. Yay. Fucking yay. Humans betray other humans all the time. Fucking yay.

edit to add: It's good to have friends, even when they are hundreds and thousands of miles away. Thank you to those who responded to and listened to me.

Bloody hell, weeble. *hugs*



I logged on here for the first time in ages just to say to the ether (twitter feels too public, though of course this is public too) that, goddamn, I could do without the existential panic attacks, thank you. I was just watching a stupid video my son was showing me and was overcome with the most awful anxiety attack. That can fuck right off and never come back.

Those of you who have met me in the meat world know that I babble. It is a thing about me. And yes, I do know that it can get annoying, I only hope that I can keep track of it and not visit people as frequently so they don't get a massive dose of me. And yes, I'm over sensitive and so there are times when my brain is giving me a false impression of reality.

I can't post this on facebook or google+, because this involves a local person who is on that list, and so I'm whingeing here.

Several times in the last few weeks, friend at a place I go quite often would bring up the fact that I'm babbly. Always with a chuckle, but saying things like, 'when you leave people remark how quiet things get' or 'other patron is babbly today, with both of you here it'll be non-stop jabber'

And so I take that as a cue that I should shut the hell up for a while. But when I'm quiet she remarks that it's weird that I'm being quiet.

I already know I'm over-sensitive, but am I being overly over-sensitive?

I'm thinking I have gotten annoying to the point that I should just not go there for a while.

Trying to talk myself out of a fairly big anxiety attack 90 minutes before storytimes start. Ugh. UGH.

Maeve, I'd be tempted, being a bit of a babbler myself, to turn around and say, "it comes across like you're being very critical about my talkativeness. I don't know if you intend that, but please either say what you mean or shut up.". that's because on top of being a babbler, i'm also a bit up-front about these things, nowadays. don't know if that would work for you, though.
