You've always been courageous, wish.

Try a little freshly grated ginger with the carrots etc.. Just a tiny, tiny amount.

Hi Lara,

Just what I needed to hear. I've been doing some major soul-searching the past month. I met a dear, dear friend/neighbor and we've gotten close over the past month or so, sharing our very similar backgrounds and personalities. He is a survivor of suicide too. And we talk about what it means to be *us* and you all too.

Did you know that people who accept life, who are open to it, who understand it fully, are more susceptible to drugs, alcohol, and depression? (I didn't make it up, research shows this, and I am a researcher )That's because we don't live in denial and repress our surroundings and what life has offered us. It means we have been challenged. We understand the world isn't perfect, isn't even fair. We are more sensitive beings. <3

That is all my soapbox has to offer tonight. I've been fighting and struggling the past few months. Not suicide or anything like that, but depressive thoughts making it hard each day. But it's because I am learning and accepting my life. You just can't have it all. *hugs*

I hope you all are surviving. Never surrender, so I was told.

((((((wish hsiw))))) YOU GET IT!!!

Be very grateful for your youth.... keep looking forward ....
oh, I could bore you with a whole bunch of cliches ... but I won't...

ok, just one more

Baby steps... be kind to yourself...

maybe it IS this time of year for a lot of us in the northern hemisphere... the horrific storms, people loosing their homes to both nature and the bank ...

I think the whole world is stirred up right now... worse than ever... probably because of social media and our awareness..... .

too much sometimes....

as long as we can keep pulling ourselves up... I'd say we're doing pretty good

I'm so glad you keep checking in... every last one of you here!

I've been wondering about Lonely1 ... anyone talk with him lately? .... oops... wrong thread...

Oh am getting "warm fuzzies" reading here. We always said that our Michael was too sensitive for this world and our DMack disappeared shortly after I said that. The truth hits home and it startles us sometimes.

We are coming into the holidays and anniversary dates for some of us...that's never easy. Please remember that you are not alone with your thoughts and please check in and share what you are feeling. Talking helps.

Hugs for the room.
