    Well I'm pretty happy I managed to eat a bowl

    of mashed potatoes yesterday! After 23 days on liquids. Swelling around jaw has gone down a lot, pain is less. I am hoping I will not have to go back to the dental hospital. Hopeful I will recover soon and get back to living my life.

    I want a man who's afraid to lose me.

    I want a man who loves me unconditionally. I want a man who appreciates what I do for him and my little efforts and sacrifices. I want a man who values me and makes me important to him. I want a man who makes me one of his top 5 priorities. I want a man who accepts everything...

    Those What-ifs

    What if....those two words keep me going. Even through all my stuggles, I still believe that I am capable of reaching most of my goals in life. I sometimes get down, who doesn't? but I resist the negative and try to stick to the positive. I am stubbornly hopeful.

    I haven't felt that way in a while,

    but through all the deep dark depressed times I crawl my way back out kicking still trying to learn lessons and bring me to a place where I want to feel happy with myself and the things I surround myself with, I'm not 100 percent there but I'm still hopeful....it will happen.

    After 7 months of waiting

    for a court date to plead my custody case, the judge has responded. Although 3 months away, we have a date set for hearing. This is not forever and I will get to have my children home before our new baby arrives.

    Nothing is as bad as it seems sometimes it

    takes a little extra effort to see the sliver lining... This is what I say to myself daily just to be able to muttle through the garbage and drama that is plaguing my life right now. Does anyone else feel this way or is it only me?

    When someone is unhappy in their life,

    they grasp on to something they find happiness in. It may be an activity, a food or a person. They cling to this object because it showed them a light they are desperate for. They crave it and need that happiness. Sometimes to the point that they stop trying to make themselves...
