    HELP...... this mood is scary, I am so angry, and it is for a ridiculous reason, and it is probably because i have not been writing and a million other things, but it is here and what do i do about it......

    Relax, do something that will take your mind off what is bothering you, may be get a good sleep, or sometime off work with  friends.

    Hey visit your beautician and get pampered.. always helps, the fussing around while having a pedicure or manicure..  do anything fun and you will soon calm down... don,t eat...no chocolates too bad  for health.

    Caffeine jitters and anger don't seem to mix well with me.

    I have to question my crummy thoughts and ask if they are something I really need or am I better off without them. I've learned I don't have to believe all my silly little lies and torture I rehearse to myself. Then I can laugh about it.

      Minds tend to take on a mind of their own, don't they? Damn things. I think we give them way too much credit.

      I too had to learn that you gotta control your thoughts, because your thoughts are what control you. Gotta get control of your mind. It's darned hard, but it's the only way.

    yeah i need to throw so much rubbish away in this house, i have two bin bags here, and am rushing off to throw craft stuff in it that is everywhere....

    I watched Dr Phil this morning...... It was all about a woman who was killing herself with alcohol, they interviewed the woman and her daughter they brought a coffin on ..... My sister is in a coffin, and her daughter is amazing but not near me.  My dad is actually dying he is on so much oxygen was rushed to hospital two days ago, we all that he was dead, as he could not breath at all.... Now he is back home, in a different country to me, and seems to have nine lives, but it cannot go on for ever.

    I took to knitting again, i used to do it years ago, and i made an aran waistcoat, can you believe that one front is a totally different shade, it is now in the bin....... that was the last straw, why am i laughing while i was writing that.

    Oh exercise.... I have been stuck in for days with the snow, i have cabin fever.......roll

      I think you're overwhelmed, from your description. That's a LOT of crap on your table. Maybe you could take the day to just do good things for you, since you can't control a lot of the other things...Just a thought. Anyway, sending good thoughts your way. Be gentle with yourself. We're no good to anyone else when we treat ourselves poorly, and being angry is a harsh way to live.

      Easier said than done, I know, but question those crummy thoughts and see which ones you need to keep (if any) and laugh at the rest.

        you know what this advice is so good.  i am a person that seems to cope with everything so well, but lately, i clutch at straws, if you know what i mean, nothing seems to work, the way i want it, but maybe things will improve, i will look back on this thread, with love one day, i am isolated where i live, and never more so than just recently with the weather.  Not working at the mo.  Convincing myself that's o.k. but who wants to be lonely and broke.... i will fix it, as best i can.

          It happens to the best of us - just be thankful for what you have.

          There was a time right after I graduated high school that I didn't have anything.  I remember sleeping under the pavilion in the park in Old Naples.  I had a lot of problems in my life back then, but to look back on that and see where I am today..

          Everything passes, and this is but a small moment in time.  Keep your head up and keep moving forward.. You're an amazing person, and I know that amazing things will come your way..

            i will tell you something funny, but keep it to yourself.

            I need to lose weight .......  I love to swim...... My husband is paying for me to go to this really expensive stupid pool, sauna, gym etc.  I dont always feel like swimming, but i do go, it is one of the only things in the town i live, tho we do have a tesco.  No buses that go anywhere i want to go, and no i do not drive....
            Everyone tells me i am mad because i do not use the gym, as i do have a lot of weight to lose.  So as i am paying for it anyway, i had an hours session with this trainer, it was the worst hour of  my life, i hated it so much.  Anyway i decided to do it.  No money coming in because of weather {that will change as from this week}  so i ordered some trainers from a catalogue, they did not come so i rang.  I was on the phone an hour but they just kept putting me on hold or passing me to someone else, then i clicked, i could not get them because of credit rating, i should have been so happy, as i did not want to go to gym anyway..... but it upset me so much why.......  my house is warm, the snow is ceasing, things will improve, but sometimes momentarily you can lose sight of that fact isn't that so.....  what am i talking about .......

              It sounds like you live down the street from me.. There's an old movie theater here, but most of the time it's out of business.  Other than that there's simply not anything to do. I'm with you on one other thing too, I don't drive right now either - so I know what that feels like.  I injured my back several months ago and haven't been able to do much of anything.. It frustrates the hell out of me.. Disability pays for some things, but it's not near enough to cover all I need it to.  But still, I'm alive and breathing, so I must be doing something right..

                  It's been like that for years, so for the most part, I'm used to it.  I threw it out again moving a drum set, but I lied and told my former boss that it was because of work. big_smile  I used to lay carpet years ago, and screwed it up back then.  I just have to be careful with what I do.

                  I think a virtual movie is a great idea! big_smile  Actually, I've been wanting to see the new Tron movie.. I remember watching the first one years ago and am just curious to see what they've done.  Violent movies are alright, but they have to have a really really good story line..

      That's rough.. it sounds like everything seems to be crashing down at once - and the cabin fever doesn't help at all.  I always have problems this time of year myself - I can't stand not seeing the sun. 

      Maybe it's time to just get away for a couple days?  - a mini vacation?  I dunno, wish I could help though.. It's frustrating, but don't let it get ya down.

          I don't think at all that you're just looking for attention.. There's nothing wrong with asking for help, or even wanting to use someone as a punching bag..  John Donne once said, "No man is an island, entire of itself."  Sometimes we just need people out there who will remind us that it isn't all bad, and that things will always get better.  Right now, ya may feel like pounding your fist into a wall, but next week, it'll just be a memory.  That's the nice thing about life, it just keeps pushing us on.. For now though, you just have to keep pushing on - rely on family and friends and soon enough, this will all pass.

                  I spent some of the best years of my life in Tampa.  My ex's mother was a fourth grade teacher in Pinellas Park, but has been around all of the schools doing this or that. 

                  I hope your son's doing good.  It's sad to hear about his son, that has to be hard.  Still, the treatments are a lot better now than they used to be, and most people are starting to understand more about autism.  Most autistic people have great lives now because of that.  I figure that it'll only get better as time goes by and they find more ways of dealing with it.

        Don't feel guilty for a day of distraction and clean your house a bit at a time. You don't need to do everything at once ya know. When its done you will feel settled and you can write. Ive just spent the past three days crying my head off and scrubbing the floors. Here is a nice picture for you.

    It was just some planetary confusion there for awhile.  Now, I suggest we all get out our pencils and write a letter to Santa.  Ask, or don't ask, just write him and tell him what's needed.  It helps to know exactly what is needed anyway, whether he's listening or not. If you were that angry, something is definitely needed!  (she says as she coughs up more phlegm, flegam? phleghm?)
