    what if you met the man of your dreams, and he adores you.

    but there is no chemistry. at all. none. and he's in love with you. but you're not in love with him like that.

    he wants to give you every single thing you've ever wanted.

    but you don't want affection from him and still crave affection from others.

    wtf brain. you're a dumbass

    you're gonna end up alone

    right? I really need to work on not magnifying shit because it's generally not as bad as I make it out to be, but in the moment I just...can't really help it. Or eat least I haven't learned how to help it yet.
    Also I called my phone company and they don't shut it off if it's under $2.99. I was 78 cents short. So I'm good.

    They put me in 3 different places this morning ending in the ER. I about up and left. I do not have the personality, or mentality, or whatever for ER. They put me back in another place after I locked myself out of my work closet lol

    How much fired do you think I'd be if I told the boss that I do not have the right temperament/mentality for the ER.

    Cause that place, even in my only hour there, is too chaotic. Nothing follows any kind of order, people expect you to be fast AND good. (I can only be one of those, and it's the latter.) I can tell you right now, if they put me down there regularly I will quit. Debt be damned.

    I think it’s fine to have a planned but honest conversation about it.

    I'm a very private person. I don't share things with my family outside of my husband and I certainly do not talk about my problems. I'm about to throw all of that out the window to get this out. Maybe I will feel a little better.
    On the Friday after Christmas my husband was let go from his job. On that same day, my mother calls me to tell me that not one, but both of her parents are in the ICU. It's been two weeks and they are still in there. The hospital is an hour away and our car is falling apart. I have to limit how often I can see them. My grandmother will be able to come home in about a week. She won't be able to fully care for herself and I will be the one to end up helping her. (with what time and gas money, I don't know because I need to be here day and night making all the pennies I can to keep our roof over our heads or at least try) My grandfather is so weak though and I don't know how he will get through dialysis. He may never come home and this will more than devastate my grandmother. She remains hopeful, but said when she loses him to leave her alone. (I understand this, but it worries me.) I learned yesterday that my cousin will die of lymphoma and leave her two young boys behind. I don't know how my aunt is handling all of this. This isn't even all of it, just the tip of the iceberg. I'm so mad at my husband for doing this to us. He lost his job because he became extremely complacent at work and don't even get me started on the alcohol. I'm thirty years old and I have no solid ground to stand on. This is not alright and if he doesn't get a new job extremely soon we will be out on the street. My anxiety is more unbearable than it has ever been. I have no one to talk to and I feel insane. He has had two interviews so far, so maybe there is hope. I don't know.

    One of my coworkers walked past me and said "wow, she looks like she worked hard today. Look at that hair."

    :cry: that wasnt very nice. And I did work hard, cause that's my job and I'm a good worker.

    Unlike you Ms. 50% patient satisfaction.

    why is it normal that I work so many jobs yet still can't get ahead?

    why is it normal i have to give up everything that makes me happy to survive?

    why is it normal? I'm tired. I'm so tired from the depths of my bones.

    I needed somewhere to vent.

    Holy hell, has today been wild. Speaking to an amazon employee and attempting to get him involved with us, discussed things about the server, and dealing with turk itself all while doing real life stuff.

    I think my brain went overboard or something in dealing with Mr. Amazon. I'm still pumped about it. I have noticed I've been a bit more jumpy today because of of it, and have over reacted to some things. I'm still a bit bothered that the poor guy is probably going to log in and see a million PMs from people, which is my fault but I was hoping people would be understanding and mature and such. It really got to me what some people said but it shouldn't have. I just want to help the community.

    Anyway, I hope everyone here has been doing well. I don't spend as much time here as I would like but I do care about you and am willing to offer some classic Metallica advice where necessary. I might be constantly busy, but never enough to not have time to help someone.
