    I come here to vent. This is my place.

    That's what I'm here for is therapy. I started out with the intention to blog, share my life experiences, and not to communicate with anyone. That was over 8 years ago. I met someone of the best friends, surprisingly, but most of them are gone now. I've compulsively deleted my...

    This just keeps going through my mind, when I think about it I start to find myself sinking into self pity or something. Any way I had been having a problem with a couple of teeth that needed to come out, they got infected, hurt, the whole bit. Money seems to always be an issue...

    I used to have FWB that I met from online.

    I would like one again but for some reason I'm not a whole 100% sure. I think most of it has to do with me gaining weight. I'm not sure what to do bc I have needs and also think it's bc I'm feeling lonely again. And that's what I did before was have sex and it felt good for...

    I really tried to put some faith in people.

    There are a good handful of good people who, genuinely, cares and do the right thing. Then there are many others I wonder how they can sleep at night. In less than a year, I learn the following things the hard way: Most veterinarians are scams. I respect their education...

    I miss him. It isn't right

    that I am forbidden from connecting with him ever again. Always hoped the hubby would come around and see that it's possible to love many people in different ways. And that some relationships have no name. They just are.
