Iwell started off the year unemployed. Found a job but then my roommates decided to downsize and asked me to move out.  Found a side gig to help me make ends meet but it wipes me out. Looking forward to a trip to Alaska and everyone around me is so negative about me going and enjoying myself except a few. I haven’t had a real vacation in over 12 years and these people just can’t stand it that I might actually have some fun and have something positive to talk and laugh about.  I am moving in…See More

"Hi thanks for your post.  You know they took pictures to post but only on sort of showed all the people there, but it was just their signatures on a poster.  Not a single picture of the dance floor or any other area.  Only couple…"

"I hear you, Daisy. I do not have the same experience of the loss of house, children, and job, but I've lost my sense of purpose so I feel I have no direction. I'm just hoping in time I will see what my purpose is, otherwise I just feel…"

New Year’s Eve party

one of the meetup groups is hosting a party.  The venue is nice but it is not as spacious as the host is trying to make it out to be.  $15.00 a head. She provides the DJ, food, paper/plastic products and party favors.  204 woman and 71 men attending. That’s $4,125.00 she will barley break even on this thing.  She is trying to tell me it’s not going to be standing room only. She’s trying to tell me the music will not be so loud you can’t hear anyone.  She is trying to tell me standing around…See More

Friendship vs Intimacy which

I recently joined two meet up groups near me.  I struggle with the amount of time to devote to this.  My time is valuable and once spent I cannot get it back.  So, I have to really work on being people’s friends.  It reminds me of my children’s sports teams.  If you show up and interact with people there you have a chance of befriending at least one person who you might get together with outside of the sports and separate from your children.  However a majority of the adults there could care…See More

When will it get better?

12 Christmases without my hubby.  My heart is breaking because I don’t have anyone yet to share the load with. I feel like I have lost everything.  My husband, my house, my children, my job. I am not homeless because of friends I live with and I feel like shit because I can’t afford to pay them what the place is worth.  Why am I even alive?See More
