    I Dont Know Which Way To Turn

    My heart tugs in different directions. Which way do I trust? I need security, but I long for advancement. I value honesty, but hear plenty of lies. I scream when I need to be held, yet I push when your near. Hmmmmm.... why? Im on an emotional roller coaster.

    The ebb and flow of emotions are difficult to

    predict. Some triggers become active after the deed is done. You don't know it until you have the time and space to be fully aware of every part of you. The mind wanders into, what seemed to be, forgotten territory. As a result, this territory transforms into a cage as you try...

    It's like I'm on a roller coaster.

    Sometimes it just goes flat (meaning I feel neutral, or can't tell how I feel). Then, sometimes it lowers and sinks, and at these times, I feel really sad or feel worse. Then, it goes back up to just going on a straight, flat line and I feel neutral again.

    I Want Off!

    This is one ride I'm getting tired of!  I've done the merry-go-round, the bumper cars and the twister.    And I managed to get off all of them.  But the emotional roller coaster seems to be a ride I can't get off!  It's making me nauseaus!    I...

    Thanks To The Military

    I am feeling so cynical right now.  In the last hour I've felt angry, disbelieving, anxious, panicky, indignant, frustrated, sad and helpless.  It is the helpless part that gets to me the most.  I am to the point where I don't even want to think about the whole retirement...

    I go from being on a super high to feeling

    super depressed. It's exhausting. I find myself wanting that high back, but I have no way of getting it back.

    I feel like every time something good happens

    something bad always happens shortly after that to ruin it all. I feel so good and then I feel terrible. Its like an emotional roller coaster and I wish everything could be fine.

    The last two days have been a low

    for me. I don't really have a reason why. But I like to look for one, & that probably just makes it worse. I'll tell you what's making it worse right now: my husband's bad mood. I get scared when he's in a bad mood. I'm scared that it's my fault & he's just not telling me. And I...
