    Bob, please tell me you've applied for on-campus living next semester. Get the frog out of that house and do it ASAP.

    Re: birthday. Leave the house early. Stay gone all day. Text your mom something like "out for birthday, have fun at your whatever event. Am fine. Love, blah." Make it clear your life is YOUR life and do it soon. It's the only way to stop a parasite like that. Sorry, but she is, even if she doesn't mean to be. You will not be healthy & happy until you separate fully from her. This is not cold advice, this is advice from someone who's seen that kind of parent nearly wreck the life of a dear friend.

    Move out, even if you can only do it for the school term. If you have money saved, put it toward that. Even dorm life is waaaaay better than that.

    Well that's kind of thing. There's no campus living, it's a community college. I can tell you though that once next semester starts, I'm applying to transfer to a new school. I know you've had a front row seat to my mother's craziness and she means well, it's just now that I am home she's having a bit of a hard time letting go (or, in my case, a really hard time letting go). But if I have the option between graduating with an Associates and having to work low-end minimum wage jobs for the rest of my life of heading out for two more years to get a Bachelor's and really do something with my life. Well... I'm going with the latter.

    It's been a sad and lonely afternoon for me. The rest of the weekend won't be any better.

    I'm already down about things this month...I should have an optimistic attitude but I'm always the type to prepare for the worst. :(

    Feeling depressed, unmotivated, tired and anxious and I have no idea why.

    It happens to everyone at some point. My advice would be to find something to occupy your mind. Something that you love to do. Then your negative feelings will leave. And if you're tired, maybe it's best to take a short nap.

    I'm sorry Mayhem. Those days tend to happen sometimes. Hopefully you can just hide away with a nice book or something until the feeling passes. Quiet time always helps me.

    Exams coming up. I'm really nervous about the oral portion on my Spanish exam this Friday.

    Man I understand that I used to get so nervous and my hands would get clammy the night before an exam. I'll send good thoughts to you Mo and I hope you do well!

    I understand how you feel about the dark-earlzy thing plus about the holdiay blues, I've had the 'holiday blues' since a little after Halloween and not only that but, my father who threw me out called up my therapist and I may have to face him within the next couple of days. I don't want to, he threw me out, decided it was okay to treat me like dirt and put me aside for his fiancee and replacement kids who I was once stupid enough to like :/ My mom is begging and pleading for me not to hate him because she says hate is bad and he's my father but what she doesn't seem to get is that he hasn't acted like my father in months and that he's fighting for my custody just to spite her (but she maybe gets that last part) Apparently my father is mad at me for leaving when HE threw me out...I keep saying that's like shooting me in the foot and telling me not to bleed! Because how can he be mad at me for leaving when he told me to leave??? Well, either way, I don't want him back in my life and I refuse to invite him to my graduation! I get 10 tickets and they're MINE for me to give to who I want there plus he can't go anyway b/c my mom has a restraining order against him. His parents aren't invited either, they betrayed me and gave him my number so I refuse to speak to them or invite them to my graduation! I am not happy at all and feel very stupid for thinking I could trust them :(

    I'm sorry that you have to go through this stuff, it doesn't seem very fair of your father to get mad at you for leaving when he threw you out. Hopefully you don't have to face him, but if you do hopefully your therapist can help you with the meeting. I hope things get better for you soon. :sympathy:

    Dang, DQM. Uh...doesn't he know that fighting for custody is pointless when you don't want to be in his care?? No judge in the world is going to award that when they hear the whole story from you -- and you will get the opportunity to stand up and speak if it does come to that.

    Sorry you're feeling so betrayed. I sympathize. Do your best to ignore the haters and focus on what's good in your life now.

    I've learned to ignore haters. I no longer let them own me. I always said unless your my family or friends I could care less about others. Because the others don't know me.

    Some people in my life have disappointed me greatly. Life could be so wonderful but some people just choose to be miserable and make others around them just as miserable. And it makes me angry and sad and frustrated that things can't be different. :cry:

    I hope things get better for you soon, heralde. I know it's hard to be around people who seem to only want to bring others down, hopefully you can get away from them soon.

    Thanks. : ) I mean I don't want them out of my life but it seems there's nothing I can do to make things better. That's what makes this so frustrating and disappointing.

    Man I can sooooooooooo relate to this. When people get like that I just try really hard to distance myself away from them. Although sometimes in my case it's hard cause some of those people are family. -_-
