  1. Feeling very unlike myself tonight.  No idea why.  Could use a friend.

      Hi!  Message me if you want—I’d like to get to know you better and I will be awake either way.  Hang in there!

      Hi @Kmkz, @Free2Fly, @MeBeMary, @Field8, @Hoping8 

      THANK YOU guys for your kind words and messages and for sitting with me last night.  

      I do NOT ask for help often. I'm not used to doing so.  In the past, I was taught and 'conditioned' to deal with my emotions and moods differently.  Whenever I feel these 'emotional overloads,' this (untrue) feeling of sharing being equivalent to showing weakness kicks in and I am usually quicker/more likely to suck it up and let it sit and fester instead.  But this is not happening anymore; part of my personal growth process is to (slowly) learn to allow others to be able to offer comfort, advice or support when needed.  More often than not, healing is a grueling uphill battle, and it's too easy to forget that there are others who are on that same hike.  Slowly, I am discovering the benefits of allowing others to stand behind me and give that encouraging push here and there - I WILL keep climbing and I WILL make it to the top of this hill, eventually.  

      I'd also like to shout out to a couple of others not listed here who also took the time out of their evening to reach out and talk to me.  You guys have NO idea how much it helped to know that you were there.  Thank you, too. :throb:

      I'm feeling a little less unsettled and more coherent today.  I did manage to sleep for a little while, too, so the headache has lessened although it's not completely gone, yet.  I'm going to respond to a couple of PMs, soak in the bath and will be back later.

  4. Normally I hate the rain.  It's gloomy, it's murky, it's depressing.  But today, I welcome it - it's given me a chance to reconnect with myself a little bit.  Not in a bad way, though.  It's just me, by myself, alone.  Without interruptions.  

    Let God cry today so  that I don't have to.

    Anyone else?

    1. Capulet


      Where's the thumbs-up button?  I guess we don't have one, here.  But yes, agreed - I needed some quiet, today!  Hope you are doing well, @pattyr.  

    2. pattyr


      Thanks, @Capulet.  I am doing okay, taking some comfort in some food, and reading AS to feel not alone.  Not raining where I am, but kind of grey out, has a bit of that feeling.  I  hope you are doing well too.

    3. Capulet


      Yes.  I feel productive, I had the time today to do some writing that I'd been otherwise delaying and procrastinating on.  I also did my fair share of reading/connecting with others.  Keeps the mind busy.

      I feel good having done do.  Thank you for checking in. :)

      Just woke up from nightmares... so hello although your probably all asleep now lol missed this bus.

  10. Be safe this Super Bowl Sunday, guys!  In my area, we got snow and ice today, we are still going to attempt going to a friend's, but may very well turn around and come back home if roads are bad. Hoping all of you stay safe! xo

    1. MeBeMary


      You stay safe, too, Capulet. My day is more at home with Puppy Bowl, instead. :breakdance:

    2. Capulet


      Ended up attempting to go to friends' house but turned around...roads were too icy to proceed.  So we came back home and made our own munchies.  Great game so far!

  11. New Year, new look for AS.  I'm loving it, it looks great.  Anyway, wanted to send a late(ish) Happy New Year's wish to all of you.  See y'all around. :)

      Happy New Year!

  12. To those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today with family and friends and loved ones - I wish you a blessed and wonderful day!  

    To those who have chosen to celebrate Thanksgiving alone or who struggle with holidays in general, I extend all of my unconditional love and support and want you all to know that even though I may not know you, I am  still thinking of you, too.  I truly hope that today, you do something special for yourselves, just because you deserve it.  You are worth it.  NOTHING changes that.  

    Happy Thanksgiving, I am thankful for this site and for all of you.

    - Cap

      A wonderful and thoughtful message. I echo your sentiments back to you and everyone.

  13. Thinking of trying to get back into the wonderful world of blogging.  Hmmm.  To blog or not to blog?
