    Like on EP I guess, waiting

    for something to happen, until it's all over! I'd write more, but I think my keyboard's stuck... Hah not! But I don't really want to be stuck complaining, either. Move along, move along...

    My experience started almost two years ago.

    I was asked to take guardianship of my nephews. Up until this point I've felt confident that I could raise them to not be their parents, but these last few week that confidence is gone. I feel like they are never going to surpass the legacy that their parents made for them. The...

    Dreams Seem Just Out of Reach...

     I laughed at the logo for this topic - since thats how I feel, only imagine that the teddy was waist deep - and was stretching his arms to try and reach something to pull himself in.  I feel like my dreams are ahead of me, and no matter how hard I seem to try they are...

    I'm a mother, wife, and a full time employee.

    My mother in law and brother in law live with us in our tiny house, supposedly helping with the children while my husband and I work to support everyone, but it sure doesn't feel that way. The house is always a mess, it's cluttered, the kids don't have the time and attention...

    Where do I see myself in a year?

    Not home. Never home again. One more month of this garbage and I can hopefully be free for a good, long while. I need to make it through this time of crap and plan for the future before the thought even hits the back of my head, and I'll be out for good.

    I have no idea what I'm doing

    or for what purpose. There's so much I want to do but I'm being held back by so many different things. Life keeps throwing obstacles one after the other and I can't catch up. I feel like my goals in life will never be realistic.

    I have all these brilliant media concepts just

    begging to be made -movies, TV shows, cartoon, videogames, books; you name it, but my Asperger's leaves me without the ability to actually flesh them out past concept stage and I have no idea how to get them out so other people will see them and want to make them
