That’s so powerful :) I have always found it to be so hard to assert my needs and aspirations when they conflicted with the agendas of the people around me. That is so genuine. I think there is courage in just having the fortitude to say what is yours and what is not hers :)

Thank you for sharing that :)

Well... here I am again. I try as hard as I can to stay away from here because I want to believe that if I try hard enough things will get better. And sometimes it really does work. But it doesn't help things when you feel like you have the whole entire weight of the world on your shoulders.

My mom is doing okay. I don't think she will ever truly get back to the way she was before her stroke. I guess that is understandable after all considering she is 75 years old. When she walks she walks with a small limp because the stroke affected the left side of her body and her shoulder gives her a lot of pain and difficulty. She gets tired really easily too. Sometimes doing the smallest of things make her exhausted.

You would think that would make my niece back off a little wouldn't you? But no, it hasn't.

Last night when my mom was sitting down resting my niece called her on the phone and said she wanted to make cupcakes for the baby but she was completely out of eggs so she actually expected my mom to get up and drive into town and get some eggs for her. And know this ... me and my mother do not even live in town. We live all the way out in the country. My niece on the other hand lives in town. The grocery store is literally one minute away from her. She could actually walk to it if she had to because it is right at the end of her block. My niece does things like this all of the time...... ALL of the time.

Last night after my parents went to bed I sat outside all by myself and just watched the night sky for the longest time. I think I could have set out there forever. It's spring time here and everything is slowly waking up and bringing forth life again just like waking up from a beautiful dream. The first of the flowers are starting to bloom and the green leaves on the trees are peeking out. The air is warm and sweet and feels wonderful on your skin. I love to watch the stars shine and the airplanes all the way up in the black heavens blink with their colored lights.

I bet whoever is up inside them flying has no idea someone like me is setting there underneath them wishing I could fly like they do.

I'm strong damn it. I know I am. I've proved I am but I hate how every single time I start doing a little better people like my niece keep pushing me back.

I'm scared sometimes that she is going to make me lose my mom. She expects too much of her and she could very easily have another stroke and might not be lucky enough to survive another one.

And my niece actually had the nerve to ask me and my mom to start babysitting again.

I think the most painful time of the day is when she comes to pick up the baby after we babysit for her and I have to sit there and listen to her go on and on about what a gorgeous baby she has. She even laughed at my house because my floor was covered with baby toys. She thinks it's hilarious that my whole house looks like a day care center. She doesn't even care that after she leaves and goes home with the baby I have to sit there and pick up all of the toys and try as hard as I can to hold it together and not cry.

I hate how I still have to deal with this all by myself. Sometimes it scares me because I start thinking I would be better off dead. It scares me because I know damn well I don't ever want to die like that.

Last night when I was sitting out there watching the stars I couldn't help but think to myself everything feels like the beginning of the end and that terrifies me.

Everything I love is slowly slipping through my fingers and I'm trying as hard as I can to hold on to them so I don't lose them. I'm scared about losing my mom, my dad who is now in his 80's has a heart condition and his heart is now down to only functioning 14%. He suffered a massive heart attack years ago, has had a pace maker put in and also went through prostrate surgery and heart failure. All in these last few years.

My health myself isn't in the greatest condition either. I've had a lot of women's "female" issues and scares and a few other medical scares. Plus add depression and anxiety from all of that stress on top of that. Sometimes I wonder how much more I can take. Both in body and mind.

And does anyone remember that historic home I was trying to help keep standing? I was helping a woman who is in charge of a Restoration Committee to save it? We are losing that battle. The County Commissioners are fighting us every step of the way and are doing everything they can to have the home demolished and torn down. They are even playing every dirty trick in the book and they can get away with it because they are "high" in power there is nothing we can do about it. It's heartbreaking beyond words to lose that battle and know there is nothing we can do to save it.

One of my favorite places in the whole entire world is going to be destroyed. Demolished torn town piece by piece.... It's one of my favorite places to go when I am sad. Where will I go now?

And I miss talking to people online but I'm scared. After that whole Angie, Vicki lie I can't bring myself to open up to people again. There is a very small handful of people ( about 5 ) that I talk to once in awhile but every time I start getting ready to open up to them and let down the walls I get nervous again. I just can't bring myself to ever feel safe online again after what happened.

And now I lost one of my rescue cats. He was a crippled kitten from birth due to a birth defect. He fought a long hard life but in the end couldn't make it any longer. I know just how he must have felt. I miss him I want him back. I just want to wrap my arms around him and hold him again.

Everything that helps keep me strong and holding on I'm losing.

I'm tired. I still wish someone was here to hold me and hug me and not let me go. I have fought for so long all by myself and now I'm even more tired than ever. I'm not exhausted because I am a quitter. If I was a quitter I would have quit and gave up a long time ago. I'm a survivor.... but even the greatest of survivors can't be expected to literally face everything all alone.

Like I said a thousand times before. I would give my entire body weight in gold to just have someone hold me. Save me. Hold me up so I don't have to keep fighting all of this all by myself.

But there is no one here.


There is a song by Miranda Lambert that I've been listening to and can really relate to. It's called Tin Man. Like in the Wizard of OZ. You know how the tin man was always wishing for a heart so he could feel love ? I bet if he was real he never realized what he was asking for because having a heart comes with a big price....

Hey there, Mr. Tin Man
You don't know how lucky you are
You shouldn't spend your whole life wishin'
For something bound to fall apart

Everytime you're feeling empty
Better thank your lucky stars
If you ever felt one breakin'
You'd never want a heart

Ohh, ohh, oh

Hey there, Mr. Tin Man
You don't know how lucky you are
I've been on the road that you're on
It didn't get me very far

You ain't missin' nothin'
'Cause love is so damn hard
Take it from me darlin', you don't want a heart

Ohh, ohh, oh
Ohh, ohh, oh

Hey there, Mr. Tin Man
Glad we talked this out
You can take mine if you want it
It's in pieces now

By the way there, Mr. Tin Man
If you don't mind the scars
You give me your armor
And you can have my heart

Ohh, ohh, oh
Ohh, ohh, oh
Ohh, ohh, oh
Ohh, ohh, oh - Miranda Lambert

I think I've made one of the hardest decisions in my life and that is just to give up on pretty much everything. I tried as hard as I could to hold on. I gave a good fight. I gave a hell of a fight but it just wasn't enough. I climbed that huge mountain and got to the top and realized there is still no one there. And I'm tired of constantly fighting and holding on just to be all alone in the end.

I've seen a lot of ugly things in this world. I see people hurting other people, people miss leading other people, people using other people. I just don't want to be a part of that world anymore.

There will always be that next beautiful sunset to reach out for but as for me I'm too tired to wait for that next one. I think I will carry with me all of the ones I have seen in the past and that will be enough.

As for me I have taken all that my heart can possibly take...

I want you to do something for me. Sit down and have a good cry. Get angry, hell throw things if you have to. We all deserve the right to vent out sometimes. It's perfectly okay. Nobody can blame you!

Nobody and I mean nobody has a right to treat you or your parents the way you have been treated. So the woman who has had multiple abortions laughs at the woman who can never have children and spends her life picking up her child's toys. That says everything about her character. You do not have to be punished for her inconsiderate ignorance. Do not shut down because of a low person like that.

Another thing. If someone would treat my mother after she's recovering from a stroke like the way she treats yours, she would get those eggs delivered for sure. She would also get them thrown at her. Sorry if that offends anyone that is not my intention. But I do have freedom of speech and that is how I would feel under that situation. I am not saying that you should actually do something like that. It just sickens me on how she puts so many unfair demands on you and your parents.

As far as the Angie, Vicki saga. Star, nobody can blame you for needing lots and lots of time. Your head was messed with for 11 years by these people making you believe you were talking to someone that you wasn't. That does not go away overnight. Truth is, I don't know how long it will take. You have 5 new friends you talk to now though. That is great! That is a start. Don't feel like you have to rush it. You will get there. I promise. Nobody should expect you to rush something like that.

Anyone who tells you to get over it and stop living in the past clearly doesn't understand the concept of time. If you are feeling it now - it's the present.

I said this once and I will say it again. You have the capability to help people Star and I truly believe that. You have a gift with your words and that can take you very far in life. I honestly believe that is your life's purpose.

" Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising everytime we fall " - I need you to remember that.

I was thinking tonight one of the saddest things in the world is people who have an overwhelming amount of love in their heart to give someone yet they always seem to give it to the wrong person or are never able to find the right person. That reminds me of YOU.

many prayers go out to you and both your parents.
please take care of yourself

Here is something that I hope somehow finds it's way to your heart and gives you a bit of hope in your darkness.

We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God's sake. And you know why we're told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they'd allowed to wither inside themselves," - Robert R. McCammon

This quote reminds me of you. How tender hearted and straight from the soul you are. And how in this cold cruel life you still find the innocent beauty of the stars and sunsets to be so hopeful. I also love the post you wrote awhile back about the teddy bear.

I also see something very genuine and childlike about you. I see it through the way you write. Do not misunderstand. That was not meant in a negative way. That is actually a compliment. Read what I wrote very carefully, listen to your heart and I think you will understand.

You are an extremely sensitive person. While some people may think you are too sensitive I see that sensitivity in you as a blessing. It is a beautiful one and it makes you very special.

Star, it's very important to understand that way too often in life we lose so much of ourselves because much of the world has become such an unkind place. I hope that certain fate doesn't happen to you.

I also want to stress something very important. You have every damn right to feel as emotional and as tired as you do. It's hard to imagine the complete hell that you have to put up with on a daily basis from your niece. Having to live with her flaunting and pushing that constant reminder of your battle with infertility every single day of your life is so cruel to the point where I can honestly say it is evil for one human being to put another through a situation like she has done to you. It is evil , it is inhumane and and I can only pray that someday she grows the hell up and leaves you alone. And your parents alone as well. Using her sick grandparents for so much of her petty demands is ridiculous.

It is wrong on every level because you are clearly trying as hard as you can and yes you have come very far. Way too far to falling back now.

Nothing is more exhausting as trying as hard as you can and the people around you keep pushing you back. You deserve respect given back to you for that.

It seems she lacks empathy. The ability to see the world through other people's eyes. It also seems like the only thing she seems to concentrate on is what makes herself feel good.

My heart also went out to you when you wrote about how you finally found out the truth about Bobby. I cried when I read what you wrote because I could tell how much you loved and cared about him when you thought the situation was for real. You truly loved him with all of your heart. I think it is pretty amazing you could forgive those people after every thing they have done to you for so many years. I want you to know this because not everyone can forgive people that easily. You truly are a special person even if others are too blind to ever realize that. And if I may say this even though you are a woman that took tremendous balls for you to scrape up enough strength and positivity to be able to do something like that. Huge ones.

Hold your magic. Hold it tight don't ever let anyone or anything take it away from you. The world needs people like you to help keep that magic alive. Every day we lose precious people like yourself. We can't afford to lose many more. The world needs people like you more than you realize.

Thank you for everything you said.


I've been spending a lot of time lately at my second favorite spot in the world. A place nestled on a hill beside my home. It's here that I can see far and wide and all the way to the bridge that leads from the old dirt road where I've lived and traveled all my life that winds around and eventually meets the closest highway. It's here in the summer time where everything around me smells like hay all sweet and warm from the summer sun. It makes the perfect bed to lay back on. I guess maybe you have to be from the country to ever understand it but its one of the most comforting smells in the whole world. During the day I can sit and see miles of beautiful country side all green and golden under the sun and in the dark , dead of night I can see the light in my parents bedroom. They have one of those Himalayan salt lamps and at night when you sit outside and look at their window when it's bathed in the most comforting bright orange glow.

When I am out there all alone it's like the whole sky in its beautiful sea of stars belong to me. I can feel the whole universe alive inside my chest. I own my own beautiful private world where fireflies dance in the darkness. I constantly dream of the places that I will never live long enough to see. Cities and towns lit with the glow of thousands of lights, oceans tides turning under the moon, buildings so tall they reach the sky. Sometimes I close my eyes and listen to the sound of the wind through the trees and pretend its the ocean.

Sometimes the dreams you have and hold close to your heart is just as wonderful as actually having it. It's bittersweet I guess.

The other day I watched a thunderstorm being born. Literally right in front of my two eyes. The sky was all a soft blue turning darker and darker, the clouds getting higher and higher and then all of a sudden I could see lightning leaping tall like dancing fingers of fire and could hear the thunder coming like the beat of a thousand horses hooves. Closer and closer to me and then all at once it was right there beside me. That's how I want to feel alive again someday. I want to feel so alive like I am ready to set the world on fire.

I've always said depression is like a monster in a horror movie. There is only two options You win or it does. There are no other choices. Me, I don't want to lose. I've never wanted to lose. I just get tired. I get tired a lot.

The other day my niece called my parents at 10 o' clock at night and asked them to go down to her house to babysit because she needed to do something...... something that she could have very easily handled with the baby all by herself...she just didn't want to deal with it. Long story short my parents went even though they didn't really want to and didn't make it home until almost midnight. My mother has cataracts which need surgery so she can't drive at night so my dad had to drive...... my dad with his medical condition does not need to be out on the road at that ungodly hour.. Plus my parents can't even stay up until midnight anymore. Every night at about nine o clock they are so tired they are ready to head to bed. What do you do ?? They are afraid to say no to her because they worry about disappointing her. My niece knows this and still takes advantage of them all of the time. Every time the phone rings I can feel my nerves tense up because I have no clue at what she's going to have them do for her next.

Sometimes I think saying her name is like Lord Voldemort except it's ........ SHE who shall not be named. I laugh at small jokes like that but it's serious because I'm worried she is going to cause my mom to have another stroke. Plus who in their right mind would send a man with a heart condition functioning down to only 14% out at night like that ?? She would and did. I have no idea what to do. I wish she was the kind of person that you could just sit down and talk some sense into but she's not.

I've been visiting some other support groups which has brought some tiny comfort. Knowing I'm not completely alone. That's is why I like sites like these. Even through the comfort of strangers you know somehow your not in this life of pain completely alone. We are all like lost souls finding comfort through each others life story.

There was this one guy that his wife found out she was pregnant. He was so excited when he found out the news but she wasn't happy about it. She wanted to have an abortion. More than anything in the world he wanted her to keep the baby but she refused to ......in the end she won because she believed it was "her body and her choice", he said that he never got the chance to hold his child in his own arms. She aborted it and there was nothing he could do. He divorced her because of that.

Life can be so unfair I can honestly say at times it feels better to die than have to deal with how ugly it can be. But you have to go on.....somehow. I guess there will be days when I feel like I want to die... but feeling and doing are always two very different things.

As for that prank online I'm slowly getting over it. It's not as bad now as it was. Eventually I'm going to have to take the chance and trust other people again. I love people too much to not ever try. And if I don't it's my own fault and no one else is to blame. You can't control how people treat you but you can control on how you react to it. Its just scary. Really scary. I've always loved people. Love conquers all right ? I hope so. I don't want to die all alone. One of my biggest fears is dying alone.



My physical health situation isn't getting any better either. These last couple of months have been harder than ever... I want to find happiness before I die. I only have one life. I'll never get another one. This is my one and only life time I will ever have.

I don't want to die without finding that kind of happiness. It's like God is there whispering in my ear telling me that I don't have much time left.

Hi Starlight - For starters, I do not spell check, grammar check or politically check anything I do. I just go with my thoughts. I've been thinking about you for several months now. Relating. I was and still am depressed and have PTSD which is how I found this board. I just often sit sad and lonely.

When I first found your thread, I was mesmerized at your writing style, whether or not you try to, your soul shines like you could not imagine. I am certain you have no idea how much you shine; otherwise you would not be so sad on a depression forum. Therefore, you have a gift that you are not even aware of. If there were more of you on this planet, oh, what a wonderful place it would be.

When I first found your thread, I just happened to be returning from West Virginia, which if my memory serves me correctly, that is where you are from. I wish I could have had lunch with you.

I cant even speak of why I am depressed because I feel my identity would be discovered much too easily but I have been through things in my life that my best friend stated, "if I did not know you personally, I would NEVER believe half the things you have been through".
It is true, I have been through things in my life that have left me scarred forever. There is no forgetting what has happened to me, and I am speaking of at least 5-10 different things.

I was thinking of you the other day, how "in touch" you are. I am "in touch". I sat on my deck the other day, happy as a clam.. Just give me my dogs, my parrot, grass, sun, rain, owls, raccoons, flowers, coffee or a cold drink, a cigarette, once in a blue moon some wine, some giggles and good company if I'm lucky, or none as I am lonely for humans.

The rain was coming, it was hot, hot hot hot, very hot, uncomfortably hot. I had a cast of shade which was fine, but no roof. Along comes some rain. My parrot felt the first drop. I wondered how long I could sit there as I was soulfully delighted at that moment; without getting soaked to the skin as I was fully clothed. I wondered if I would have to interrupt my glee by simply moving my chair under a huge hanging umbrella. I made it through 2 rains ! I was so tickled, without having to move.

Every single drop felt cooling and satisfying. I watched the drops land on my arms, they were tiny drops, there had to be millions of them. My parrot shook his/her head every time a drop hit him. I laughed at how sensitive he was. I looked at the sky, the lone grey cloud of moisture and hoped it did not pour buckets as I did not want to budge.

I made it through two separate rains, millions of dots of rain on my body from head to toe, yet never getting soaked through my jeans and looking at my bare arms, two drops of rain never ever touching or landing on the same space. No two drops ever merged into one which would have started a small stream on my arm of collected drops picking up other drops on their travels.

The drizzle stopped, I was cool and damp but not too wet to move. It sure was a nice moment that I tried to share with my other human who was there but he just didn't get it. I get so damn lonely when I am with this other human who acts like he hates me. I go straight to sadness. Like right now. I get mad, angry, furious and fantasize about running away. Why the hell am I with him when he acts like he hates me.

Oh well - I've got to go. I haven't written because I don't want to be an in and out kind of person. Sometimes I get so sad that I won't even write or if I get my smile back, I take full advantage of it and run like the wind and never even think of the internet. I've had my smile for a few weeks lately so I played in the flowers, created things, took rides in my truck, played with my parrot a lot and went bicycle riding for 12 miles of which I am not very physically fit but it sure was fun.

I don't want you to avoid love and friendship but I do hope you are careful after what happened to you in the past. If someones soul does not match yours, in life or on the internet, don't give them another second of your beautiful mind. Move on. If you meet or speak to someone on the internet, please don't let it go past a few months before finding out if they are real, sincere, soulful and safe. If you meet, meet in public, often, never alone.

tah~tah~ for now Starlight -
Hope to hear from you that something is tickling you soul and making you happy.
I've had tremendous pain from my humans lately but I look to find many things to tickle my soul and make me laugh, laugh out loud and laugh a lot !
Maybe people only ask you how you're doing... because its easier than letting on how little they really care.
But when you know you have a real friend somewhere, somehow all the others are so much easier to bear.

Thank you beebz. It's really nice to meet you. I love the way you write too . You are fascinating and have a way with words for sure. It made me want to keep reading more of what you've written. You have a beautiful mesmerizing way with words yourself. I hope you see that too.

I've been wanting to come back and write more here. It's the only thing I have in the whole entire world. I would lost if I hadn't found this place.

I've just been having trouble finding the words to write though. I think it's because I'm so exhausted. It's like every single time I start getting a little bit better my niece and all of her crazy drama knock me right back down again.


I never know what she is going to put me and my parents through next and I think that gets my nerves and anxiety going up more. And then being so tired from dealing with all of that the depression sets back in.

Like for example a couple weeks ago my nieces son brought home a dog ( without her permission. ) My niece didn't want the dog in her house and she didn't want it around to deal with herself so she called my parents ( really late at night ) not even at a decent freaking hour of the day and MADE them drive out at night into town to pick up the dog. Instead of taking the responsibility and dealing with it herself because it was HER SON she put all the responsibility on my parents.

Me and my parents aren't prepared at all to deal with a dog. I love animals and I love helping them but you have to be realistically prepared for it FIRST. You can't just call someone late at night and order them to take on an animal if they aren't prepared for one first.

We had no dog food , no leash, no collar, no way to tie it outside to a dog box so we had to keep it inside our house overnight. The dog ran all over our entire house , messed on our floor, jumped on my dad who is on blood thinner because of his heart condition and has thin blood, ( his skin is thin and fragile because of the medication he takes ) and the dog scratched him and his arms were bleeding........

I had to lock some of my cats in my bedroom because they were so terrified of the dog. My cat Max was so scared of it he hid for three days under the bed and would barely come out. It's nuts.

My parents finally did go to the store and buy a collar to tie the dog out. My dad went to the store and picked up one and when he got to the cash register it rang up thirty dollars. He couldn't believe a dog collar would cost that much. It irritates the hell out of me because he shouldn't even have to pay anything. He is disabled and they don't have much money. My niece has no damn business even expecting them to.

And there's more.....

Last night the dog got loose. She broke her collar and was at our back door barking really loud and woke my parents up at 1am in the morning. My father said she probably seen a possum and lunged at it breaking the collar. ... So the three of us was up several hours trying to deal with it. As I said many times before my mother had a stroke a few months ago and my dad has a heart condition that will never get better only worse. They are 75 and 80 years old..... They did not need all of that BS to deal with. We didn't get back to sleep until about 3 am. My mother said she didn't even want to try taking her blood pressure because she was afraid of what it would be. ...... And during all that time my niece was at her house sleeping peacefully with not a care in the world while letting me and my parents deal with it all.

I don't know how much more I can take from her.

I know that I tend to write a lot about the night time and the stars. I guess that's because it's my favorite time. Today though I went outside and sat in the field by my house. It was a beautiful day. 98 degrees and wall to wall sunshine as far as the eyes and the big rolling hills around me could see.

As exhausted as I am to write I'm not in too great a shape at the moment to describe it the way it should be. But it was just breath taking. If you can imagine a sky so azure blue as far as your eyes and heart can see dotted and laced with white puffy swirling clouds sitting there lazily above your head and the sweetest most comforting scent of a million wildflowers all around you then you could get a little idea of what it was like for me.

All around me tall, delicate, green grasses moved as if they had a life and breath of their own and they danced in front of my eyes like the waves on the ocean. Such a beautiful field full of yellow and white daisy's and giant orange faced Black Eyed Susan's that were nestled next Queen Anne's Lace which are white as snow and also standing near was deep purple tiny clovers. These same fields that bask under a golden sun are lit up like a blazing fire of green enchanting glow of thousands of lightning bugs shimmering all around you when the sun finally goes down.

I would love to write more but I'm really tired.

Anyway thank you again. I'm still holding on as hard and as tightly as I can. Some days I still get so scared I'm just going to get so tired that I lose it and give up. But I have to keep telling myself how horrible it would be if I did that. And it would be horrible.

Starlight forever and ever right ?

I have got to keep believing that no matter how hard or dark life gets.

Starlight forever.....starlight forever ... I have to keep repeating to myself.
"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that! -- Rocky Balboa

Hello there little light.
I'm always happy to see you post because then I know you are alive. I waited for one of your posts once for months. I don't do much socializing on the internet, or writing; I read tons of news (probably what makes me so sick). When it comes time to type I give up.
Anyhow, I use to be a night owl like you. I'm in bed lately by 9pm even on the weekends.

One thing that made me mad (for lack of a better word) when I read you last post about this *niece* of ya'lls, is, it is time to say NO.
When that little brat calls you in the early am hours, JUST SAY NO - It is time to say no.

I kinda feel, lately, that I ruined a human life by never ever saying no and probably putting a silver spoon in this childs mouth who is now 33 going on 18 and has accomplished nothing in life. There have been very large accomplishments actually, but all lost due to drugs immaturity, and being bailed out of every big and little issue in his life by none other than me.
So, when I read back over the years and this niece of ya'lls, time to say NO NO NO and No some more. I mean it, you'll end up in a bad place for decades if you don't.

Yesterday was awful. I sat with 3 dying animals.

This entry has already taken me 3 visits, interrupted by something or another.
I predict by the time this reply is all said and done, it'll probably be somewhere near 3 days and 13 sittings. I was accosted to hold something while it was being sawed. Then cleaning up animal puke. Then mowing some grass (finally) because I had a good moment with my back and I'll take advantage of that in a heartbeat.
I'd probably live on a riding mower if I could. I get a farmers tan and all the gentle noise makes my head go quiet and lets me think of myself for one stinking moment in time.

The animals are killing me. I cant stand to see them suffer yet I don't have the thousands that the vets want to diagnose them or NOT. They'll take thousands only for the animal to die anyway (some of them. )
One pet is an $18 dollar hamster that I really do not want to spend thousands on. His lifespan is 2 years and he needs to go quietly in his sleep hopefully soon.
Another is a dog that can not keep anything down. I will take him to the vet for an x-ray but I think it is also his time. I am watching him disappear in front of my eyes. I've sat on the floor with him for 3 days whispering in his ear, "its ok, you can let go" - lord I hate this. I've lost a lot of animals lately. The other big fat lazy dog has a tummy ache (often) so he cries and farts non stop; sometimes for an hours sometimes for 3 or more days. I have pain medication for him. No offense to the fat and lazy of which I often am. Actually I'm just a tad overweight but I think this jack a** society would call me fat.

another break lol

Another barn door to saw. Sawdust up my dress, between my toes and in my eyes . Yep, I should have worn glasses etc - oh well, saw'd wood sure does smell good tho.

I'll also break every time my human shows up because he is so NOT understanding at all about anything really. I've got a good life with him. He buys me things and supports me, my home, my pets, my parents, our kids, our grandkids, he just isn't *in touch* with any of the soulful things I am other than calling me his *soulmate.
He's a good guy tho. You can't create the perfect man. Impossible to do or have.
break------------

Well, I think it is two days later now, in the early am, and I am just now getting back to writing.
I think I'll pause and post this just to let you know that I am thinking of you Starlite !!!!

head up ! hang on ! hang tuff ! smile !

Maybe people only ask you how you're doing... because its easier than letting on how little they really care.
But when you know you have a real friend somewhere, somehow all the others are so much easier to bear.

I guess I am going to post this here; I don't have any one else to tell it to.
I do, but they're not as soulful as I am.
I was sitting on my country house porch.
The woods are thick. It is daylight. The woods are so thick that in the bottom brush it often looks black. Bush, thicket, honeysuckle, weeds, saplings, everything even poison ivy and oak.
I could see layer upon layer upon layer into several dimensions of forest yet it is black.
I see two eyes staring at me, they are blazing yellow; they were slanted, they were perfect black panther eyes.
I stared into them knowing what was going on, yet, I went with the "food for the soul".
A breeze ran through the yard; the eyes moved in a motion that an owl would do with his head or a puppy who hears a silly noise.
The panther took a hell of a glance at me, I almost thought he would lunge at me.
For a moment I lost my breath.
You may look up to the sky and make any picture you want out of clouds, but today I saw a black panther in the woods.

The two eyes looked to be on a sapling with a bare branch with only these two blazing leaves that resembled the panthers eyes
and when the wind blew, whew, what a surprise.

So, it was fun. I am not hallucinating, I am not schizophrenic, and there is not a panther in my forest.
But it was a joy none the less.
Kinda like watching the races of the leaves in the fall, watching one die, only to lift off again with a swift wind.. happily.. even though he is still coming in last in the race; he sure did resurrect.
I love to play with my psyche and enjoy it. I just don't have anyone to share it with. I have a "soulmate" but his mind does not wander like mine does.

I've been holding onto a particular dog for many days now saying "its ok, you can let go".
Its killing me - I'm hurting like hell.

My soulmate is on business, so I am alone for a while..... again....
I dont do well lately when he goes.
I practically sit and wait for him to return doing only what I need to do to survive.

I'm thinking of you Star - just thought I'd let you know ..... that I'm thinking of you.
We're sitting underneath the same sky ... what a crazy ride this life is.
