    I feel so lost right now.

    My marriage blew up, and I'm pregnant with our second child, battling depression, and I've made mistakes as much as my husband... I cheated on him with 3 different guys because I felt distant and a loss of connection with him. I had tried to let him know he was loosing me, but...

    I'm going through a separation

    and it's so hard to not reach out. And yet I know it's for the best and that I need to let go of what I thought he was. I have children with this man and they are asking for him. Asking why he doesn't call or come see them. They are worried, I can see it. They realize he just...

    Lost is an understatement.

    I feel lifeless, beaten, torn apart, defeated etc. I am to the point of being manic depressed. It's sad to even think that. But I believe all the issues I have been through over the years and now dealing with them have finally caught up to me. My marriage ended, being extremely...

    I just... it's so hard to explain.

    I don't know where to start. A few years ago, my life was perfect. I was the best at everything, an A+ honor student, a promising future in any field I wanted to go into. My parents weren't always fighting, my basset hound wasn't dead, I wouldn't have even given a second thought...

    Seeing my second corpse today only opened my

    I feel so lost. Job applications are not

    getting any responses. While I have my dream, my friends keep recommend me to ask for jobs I don't like. It really makes me struggle if I'm a capable person. Closing down a business is probably one of the worst phrase at work. I always try to lift my energy up as much as I can...
