I had a horrible anxiety attack today. I haven't had one this bad in a couple years.

I hate that my parents don't take my anxiety seriously. it's easy to say that I'm overreacting because they've never dealt with it.

I hate this feeling of helplessness and I still feel like I can't breathe in all the way.

FTFY!

This is not a father who sees his daughter as the flesh and blood person she is, capable of being violated and hurt. This is a father who sees his daughter as a breathing possession. She has no feelings or rights; she's like a chair or car that someone can physically damage. When you see your own daughter as subhuman, of course you see no difference between different causes of pregnancy. It's not like what she wanted matters beyond the novelty of a thing with emotions. It's also not like anyone can see the physical damage incurred via rape, so all you have to care about is preserving the fetus, which might come out male.

I am so sorry curlyeyes. I have had those before, mainly when I was younger, and they can be rough. I know it takes a little while to recover. I hope you feel better soon.

*******************************************

I can not sleep, and I am exhausted. I have looked at the celing fan for as long as I can. I am not sure looking at the computer is a good idea. My eyes are crossing.

I'm a (good, not bad) strange person as it is, but when will my friends learn that if I do something stranger than normal, it's for a very good reason.

I want a 4 wheeler or 6 wheeler, just throwing that out there. lol. I've been thinking about too much.

Mark Scolforo, Associated Press: How would you tell a daughter or a granddaughter who, God forbid, would be the victim of a rape, to keep the child against her own will? Do you have a way to explain that?

Tom Smith: I lived something similar to that with my own family. She chose life, and I commend her for that. She knew my views. But, fortunately for me, I didnít have to.. she chose they way I thought. No donít get me wrong, it wasnít rape.

Scolforo: Similar how?

Smith: Uh, having a baby out of wedlock.

Scolforo: Thatís similar to rape?

Smith: No, no, no, butÖ put yourself in a fatherís situation, yes.





wow, just WOW!
How did I just see this?? That is ignorance, and being out of touch with reality, at it's finest.

((((CE)))) Being told your emotions are invalid sucks enough without feeling like you can't breathe! Your family can suck it, you are not overreacting (WTF, it's a panic attack, not a tantrum) and you are awesome.

ALL OF SARIA'S .GIFS ARE WONDERFUL AND PERFECT. That last one especially is just right for expressing my disdain for the decision to inflict Blondie on another show instead of putting the viewers out of their misery. The Kanye one applies there, too. And...yeah. I should have known that the necklace would end up killing Spike, because it made him happy. Happiness leads to pain and death in the Whedonverse.

Wait, did Angel have some idea of what would happen to the wearer of that necklace? No, he would've also said not to have, like, Willow or someone wear it if that were the case, right? Can't just go handing people accessories of doom without adequate warnings.

Dead. Car wreck last Christmas day.

Splashy's dame and sire are gone, as is the owner of her sire. I feel like there's no one left to even care that my precious Splashy is alive and well.


That is sad. I know the feeling you are talking about though. You had a connection and now it's gone.

CE, hope you are feeling calmer today. I suppose it varies a lot, but in my experience, people seem to accept and understand depression better than they do anxiety, although they often occur together.

Take care of yourself. You aren't alone.

Is it bad that I felt instantly jealous of hypothetical people whose families accept and understand their depression and/or anxiety?

no, sas, not at all.

when i was being treated for depression almost 20 years ago, i didn't tell ANYONE. and when i started having hot flashes accompanied by panic attacks a couple of years ago, same thing. i just went straight to my endocrinologist - lovely lady.

and i post about that on the over 50 board - because who else is understanding besides our curlfriends?

Oh rou, I hate thinking of you being alone with the dark thoughts years before there were curlfriends to vent to. I am so happy we can all come here for catharsis and snark and recipes now!

RCW, you know she's alive and well, and so do the others that love her. That's more than many dogs get, sadly.

Found on craigslist while searching for a room:

Quote:
$300 intelligent man seeks live in gf (cambridge)

i'm a hardworking compassionate guy seeking a lady who might move in with me in at my cozy place near mit and harvard

seeking a lady who wants to find a decent guy to settle down with

i'm decent looking, fit, work out a lot, am scientifically inclined and have been studying astrophysics for 15 years; also into botany and i take care of many aquatic lifeforms

seeking a scholarly or career lady who also has similar interests

so if you think this might be a good opportunity send me a pic and let me know why you're interested and tell me about yourself and i'll send you pics of myself if i'm interested

if over 45 is too old don't reply

to be honest i don't care about the money as much as i do about finding someone to share life with

Then I see this under $400, and I can't help thinking it comes with the condition that you're cool with having your skin stripped while you sleep and used for a brand new body suit. Or, "hey, you only need one of those kidneys anyway."

I am ovulating (and I know this BC I know my body and its cycles) and I feel so very blah. My clothes don't feel right on my body, I feel tired and down. I have more symptoms during ovulation than regular pms. I am frustrated and anxious and crawling out of my skin.
