    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...

    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...

    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.
