    We're an average family And there are certain things we can afford. But when I ask something that I really want, I just can't have it. And I hate it so much because every time I ask for something, it's always a NO. You know why I'm posting this? I just had a bad day when I went...

    It Hurts

    I'm a shopoholic with no $$$....buying things makes me happy...I guess it replaces people? I understand hoarders to a point. Not being able to walk through your house easily and it getting to the point where you have mold and dust lurking is the limit. If I had money Id probably...

    Out Of Reach

    I'm not an unrealistic person ... in fact I'd consider myself pretty level headed and sensible.But there are one or two things that I want right now that I can't have.  No matter how much I tell myself they are unattainable it doesn't stop me wanting them. It's stupid and...

    Is This My Life?
