    Straight From The Frying Pan, Into The Fire.

    This is fairly long, so I apologize. I just wanted you to have the full picture, starting with earlier life so that you can see why I think the way I do in relation to the situation as a whole. If this is in the wrong place, I apologize for that too. When I was nine or so, my...

    My husband has an anger problem.

    I'm really passive and soft. But little things will turn him into this mean raging man. The rest of the time he's super affectionate. Often inappropriately so in public. If I don't feel super kissy because I'm tired or stressed from school or busy working on something, he can...

    There are countless things

    that I miss that I either had at one point or haven't had at all. Biggest things right now is being close with my mom, having a best friend, & male/female non-sexual connection. Yes I miss making love. But being mentally close is what I miss most. :-(

    Is anyone out there feeling the "I'm over 50

    and therefore I'm not being considered for employment opportunities because they can hire someone younger at half the cost and therefore to be employed I have to accept job which I'm over qualified for at about half the cost and thus I'm really underemployed, ????

    My 'hard time' isn't one

    or two days but years. When it goes on for this long, I start to think it's unrealistic to expect anything good to happen to me, ever.

    So I see this centred person psychologist every

    couple of weeks and basically, a centred person psychologist is when they dive right into you and not others around you. They see you as a unique individual and they don't label you as anything. So, he won't tell me that "I have depression", because I don't. Or he won't say...
