I'm a terrible friend!!

I just wanted to tell everyone that I feel awfull! I have a TRUE friend that I met on here in December and they have been SO wonderful to me, but the past few days I have been, well I guess distant, but not just from them, from everyone. I've had a lot going on and feeling not so well, but STILL that is NO excuse for being distant from those who care about you.

Please, you know who you are, except my apology and know I will be around for you if you need to talk.

Thank goodness spring break is near, maybe I can get some MUCH needed R n R and catch up with everyone.

Blessing!

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Application

 in response to Bee's Knees...   LOL, you are SO right! I have a friend who had a tummy tuck a few years ago, she looks amazing just from that! Crap she even paid for it on payments, when I heard that I was like, um and HOW will they repossess if you don't pay? LOL
If I had a choice on anything I could have done, just one thing, it would be a tummy tuck, even though I'd love a boob lift. Though with a tummy tuck you not only loose the baby gut, but the love handles too.

 in response to totally stressed...   Ahhh, yes laughter IS the greatest drug out there! Well as far as posting and getting back to people, I am sporatic. It depends on what time I have to even get on here, and how I feel. So, I may go for a few days and not even get online and other times I can get on and stay on for hours.
Since school is back in session though and i find myself on the computer for hours trying to figure out programming homework, when I am done my eyes hurt lol and it's like......UGH, get this thing away from me!! Ha!
Thanks for the post, I respect and enjoy everyone's opinion on here. =) We are what makes the world go round, yes?

What's on your heart and mind today?

 in response to daisydu...   Yes my husbands murder was very hard and unfortunate. It's been worse more so on my daughter. She was 11 when he died, my son was only 18 months. So my daughter remembers her daddy, and even to this day she cries. Like I said, soon will be his birthday, I think my kids and myself are going to take a trip to the cemetary with flowers and a balloon for paxton to let go in the sky to sail away to his dad.
My thing with all this is that IF I held on to loosing him, and how I lost him and the anger I had inside, it would have consummed my life. I know that I will see him again one day and I know that life will be good again one day. I just have to do what is necessary to get there. =)
As for the meds, I am on a lot of different meds. Mental Illness (though I think that is NOT a nice sounding category for these problems) runs in my family on my dads side. I have read up on it and YES it IS hereditary. I have dealt with anxiety, depression and ADD since I was a teen. So the meds to help me through those problems are part of my daily life. I'd rather take the meds so that I feel normal, than wake up everyday feeling like I want to tuck myself away in a dark corner and never see anyone. It's a chemical imbalance and it's treatable. God gave us doctors and the means to treat the sick, why shun it?
Hope you have a wonderful day!

 in response to bookworm2011...   Thank you! Your post made me smile! I have kind of started couponing, seeing that I pretty much buy the bulk of my groceries once a month (when my ebt card is filled) it's hard to tell what coupons I might could use.
I'd REALLY love to be able to use some at walgreens and stock up on the stuff EBT doesn't pay for like razors, toothpaste, deo, stuff like that.........
I'll get back to you on the coupons and thank you for offering!

What's on your heart and mind today?

 in response to daisydu...   Well I think I posted the other day that I was going to force a smile on my face and see how it goes? I gotta say, yesterday and today have been MUCH better days!! I think sometimes (I know I do) we get so bogged down in our own sulking that we make ourselves think there is no way out of the darkness.

I am like a roller coaster though, especially at this time of year. Feburary 13th was my husbands birthday, and May 4th is the day he died. Even though it's been almost 10 years I still think about it! Guess I always will, but I have to move on with my life, make it better for my family and part of that is trying to keep my depression at bay.
Thanks for the kind words!

Good Morning Aidpage! It is Monday again! I have a weeks worth of classes and work inbetween. Seems this week for some reason I am struggling with my depression, but I have decided I am NOT going to let it get the best of me this time! Keeping my chin up, putting a smile on my face and going to watch the attitude in my soul change!

Head up all, life is good!

 in response to LOCK...   I can see your point. I get on here and read and try to encourage people, some except the encouragement welcomely, others have the but this, but that, either they don't really need it, or they don't really want out of the situation.
Your one comment on "You were the one who got yourself in the mess so you can get out of it", yes and no. I had a good life, uppper middle class, nice home in a nice neighboorhood, nice car, not much to worry about. Well, until I lost my job of ten years and then ended up divorced. I DID however, except the opportunity that was offered to me to go to college and get a Associates Degree. I am now in my final semester, but honestly, the past two years have been pure HELL, not from choice! I know that I am probably an exception to a lot of posters in here. I have had A LOT of firsts for me the past couple of years, my first time to put my children on medicad, my first to have to go to a food bank, my first to be without a home and having to live with friends, my first to apply for public housing, BUT, this is NOT my life! I see a good future ahead of me, and I DO have someone on here, that has believed in me and helped me, but, along with that help, they are also educating me on becoming debt free. It takes a lot on both sides to trust the person you pick to help or recieve help from. Ask tons of questions, check into their stories, some are actually for real. Unfortunatly more are not.
Good luck on your site!
PS--Don't be to quick to give up on all of us! :)

 in response to totally stressed...   Well one thing I have learned to do when I have written a long response to someone on ANYTHING, email, forums, etc..., I always highlight it all and copy it, that way if for some reason it doesn't go through, you can then just paste it in and try to send again.

~~Prayers Badly needed for an old high school friend who had a terrible wreck December 14th~~

This morning as I read the latest post from Michaels sister I felt compelled to come on here and ask for prayers! From the posts I have tried to keep up with on his sisters facebook page, he had two collapsed lungs, and no brain activity. He is doing better, per her posts, but they need all the prayers they can get!! His name is Michael A. Hawley.

I got the info below off his sister (Teresa) facebook, I will gladly send you the link to her facebook page if you would like to read through it. I am not sure if she has it open to the public, but if you send her a friend request and tell her "Jennifer Potts Browning" sent you, she will remember me and allow you on.

A fund has been set up for Michael at Community Bank. You can make donations at any location or by mail. The account is:
Pamela Comer in benefit of Michael A. Hawley
P.O. Box 270
Amory, Ms. 38821

Thank you for all your prayers!

Bartholin Cyst Questions?

 in response to PJsMom...   Ha! My mother scolded me for posting about my physical issue. She says it is to much info to share. Guess I am more like my father (though I love my mom more than anything!) I feel like why not put it out there, someone might actually have some answers.
Anyway, went to the Gyno Friday, and had to fall prey to the "scapel" again.....UGH! Also, found out more than likely it will keep coming back until I have it removed.
Guess that will be something to think about doing AFTER I graduate!

Groceries Are So Expensive These Days

 in response to bookworm2011...   Hi bookworm!
I used to be like that, a couponing queen. Now that things have gotten much harder I am trying to get back into it. My only problem is obtaining coupons, I can't afford to get the paper ever week. I do print the ones from online sites. Today I went and used 14 bucks worth of coupons, but at one store all I purchases was food items and I have a food stamp card. They made me pay tax on the coupons I used? Never heard of that, but then I went to walmart and when I got home I added up what wasn't covered with my food stamps and they didn't charge me tax on the coupons........I guess it's just different stores....

Bartholin Cyst Questions?

 in response to PJsMom...   Broke down and went to the ER since I could apply for assistance with the bill there. They drained it and now I feel like I have the flu or something!! Got to see the Gyno tomorrow, so we'll see what's going on. I HATE being sick!
