Looks like many of us are feeling under the weather. It is easy for misunderstandings to happen and people to be easily hurt, especially with us bipolars. I know that I am extremely oversensitive right now and it is affecting things with my roommate. Glad to see that you came back and clarified. Helps relieve any hurt feelings caused by misunderstandings. Hope that you are feeling better soon.

well done

I always just say "it's morning, because i'm not much for GOOD MORNING, LOL

The heart strings are tightening for me with Matt gone. We had a discussion last night on the phone where i basically denied him to stay here until his new roommate/apt opens up. It is so confusing and difficult on Lorelei and it is very hard to see the internal damage children get from a parent coming and going and just feeling the tension and pain. It hurts me so VERY much to tell him NO i can't help you when i know he has nowhere to go. Its a 5 day spread, but i have been THERE for him for 3 years whatever he needed i gave my own needs a back seat and i cannot do it anymore. My life is down to being a 31 year old woman with a two year old child to raise all on my own. I cannot describe the anguish and despair, just for not being able to DO IT. To keep my family together. I feel like someone took a grave digging shovel and hollowed out my insides. I PHYSICALLY feel scraped out and like there is an awfully painful vacancy there. Matt and I were soulmates in a big way and then we grew and changed, only not together and now we are not. Not anything.

So enough about me, there really arent words to describe what i am feelling. I can only shove through the dull ache, fears and sadness.

Kalie, man I am so sorry you are in a pile yourself. It was not long ago when i could not afford my meds and i was a mess and you were so sympathetic. I feel for you VERY MUCH. What meds do you take? At least themost important ones? Maybe there is "somebody that can help somehow..." on the board...

The CAS stuff and all that is just ugly, and it surely is dragging you down. It sounds like a very unhealthy situation for you to be in,,,,, i cannot say what you should do, but if your roommates boyfriend is causeing YOU pain and stress I can't think of anything good about it...

Tammy: thanks for reaching out.

Faith: I seem to be on the rollercoaster you are on, i feel like it willpick up by tomorrow. ;) Maybe a little green man with "pouchy lips will come along... LOl

JENN: I am still waiting for mY PURPLE PILLS, LOL and i see you are thinking of me, as I am you, its just very hard for me right now to really accomplish anything. I WANT to try to submit for Dr Phils show. It is actually a GOAL in capital letters i hopei can find the drive to look for it and sign up or whatever.

KATHYDREAM: I am ashamed to admit i am jealouos of your lortab, i could use a happy pill right now, something to stop me thinking and aching. Not physical ache, but did you know lortab help with heartache too? LOL It is not funny to jopke about your pain meds, and i never take any pills or anything, but i was remembering the days... when there was nothing a pain pill or 5 wouldnt fix.

Not so anymore.

Hey! I'm ok! don't I always say that? I have sold my baby's crib so i can buy food and diapers. I have also gotten 2 local recurring jobs doing cleaning for some elderly or disabled people so i have that. I had advertised to take on child care but not really wanting to do it. I like to keep my stress level low. But i will do what i have to to keep my child in comfort, and so will MATT,its just financially desoalte for him right now having to comeup with large sums of $$ just to move out and get a place, like i said we are working together, so the child support will come as he can afford to live himself and pay me as well.

It's morning.

;( Beka

WELL DONE BEKA – stay stong you are being sooo brave

to everyone else this morning

I hope everyone got a good nights sleep and can start the day fresh and clean :)

no more jabs at anyone it doesn't help. We are all going through personal things right now and I know bipolars tend to be overor hypersensitive so we should really just go by what my mom taught me if you don't have anything nice to say don't speak or

pick and choice your words wisely once they leave your mouth (or fingers) you can't take them back...(at least until we have a delete button)


Have a blessed day
