    Tired of trying so hard.

    I feel like that all my effort to have a better life is meaningless. Working hard is meaningless. Love is meaningless. Being married is meaningless. All meaningless meaningless meaningless. I grew up believing that your destiny depends on the choices you make today. Right now...

    Smoking

    I have decided that when my husband comes home I will try to give up smoking with him, I'm not going to go cold turkey - maybe cut down first. I know people say it's easier to just stop than cutting down but I think it's best for me, my body would go into shock if I deprived it...

    I Already Did

    Friday night I really wanted to give up on my diet, so I did. Simple as that. I've been on this diet since April 8, so it's been almost a month. This diet was much healthier than any of the other ones I had been on by a long shot. It gave me a reasonable amount of freedom and I...

    Enough Already!

    I wrote my story in another group but here I'll talk about the aftermath. This heavy fog of non-clinical depression and anxiety has forced me into some tight spots. Jail, drug rehab that I was forced to take to avoid five years upstate for something that wasn't my fault, and now...

    I don't want to try anymore. I don't know why I bother. I don't want to wake up every day. I don't want to go to sleep knowing I have to wake up to another day. I don't want to die, I just don't want to be around. Why? I think my story lost the plot a long time ago...
