    How do you get over the fact

    that your husband has a female co worker that has a mouth like a pig and you have seen some inappropriate emails from her to him and another male co worker . He swears nothing is going on and admits emails were wrong .

    Perhaps For The Best?

    Sometimes, you have to break down to build yourself back up into something stronger. Trying to build upon a shaky foundation will usually result in no progress. But for sure, I need to either break through or break down. I feel that this is what's keeping me from making any sort...

    It's Always Like This

    My aunt is the cause of my break downs. That might sound harsh, blaming another person for my problems, but it's true. I never had this problem until i lived with her. I never hated myself, or lacked confidence , i wasn't so weak-willed and terrified of the most mundane...

    Sometimes I think I'm having a breakdown.

    The hurt overwhelms me and take over. My doctor put me on Prozac, but I guess it hasn't kicked in yet. I can't shake the depressed feelings I have and the stupid anxiety attacks are ridiculous.
