I feel like I always end up in this same fork in the road...

Hi MJ,

I am so glad that your ankle seems to be healing. I hope that the pain will get less and less, especially as they take out the plate and screws. Maybe the loose ones are pressing on a nerve or something. I am praying for a speedy recovery for you. I know that you are getting a little frustrated at the slow progress. Sounds like you and your husband had a nice weekend. We all need times like that with our husbands to help with the going is rougher. Have a great week. I always am glad to see your name on the posts. You have a very caring way about your posts. Take care.

Hang in there SFB. You can stay strong concerning CB. Do you ever go out with your husband like you do with your girlfriends just to have a good time? Does he like to dance or do other fun things like you like to do? I hope that you have a great week. You can do anything that you set your mind to. Be strong.

MJ-

?? Disappointed in my landslide backwards? No reply? 🙁

Thanks for the peptalk TS! In answer to your question, yes my husband and I go out just for fun. But his idea of fun is to just stand there. Hubby not very risk-taking, funny, amusing, etc kind of person. Reliable safe and nice but pretty much a vanilla person, as opposed to me, cinnamon flavored? Always worked before, now getting on nerves...

Hi SFB,
No, I am not disappointed in your backslide as you call it. Disappointed in your self-focus.
Do you care about me?

Absolutely.

Sometimes when in a fog I find it hard to see beyond it. Very thick fog today, sorry that makes you feel devalued. You're not. I just have nothing much to offer today to others, I don't even know how to take care of myself!

You know I care about your troubles --Glad to hear the good news regarding your weekend shopping trip with hubby, also that progress is hopefully under way with ankle? Sorry to hear about your daughter's bad news. Will be interesting to hear the outcome of that, that is definitely fast growing.

Sorry for the offense. Thought this was one place I would not have to be so dang tough every day. Could get support without...whatever.

Lesson learned...

See my post on General Board, We Rock thread. Gave credit to others on this board, etc. Posted around lunch time, before this.

Was trying to be supportive to others. Thought on my thread was okay to spill guts.

Am feeling shittier now. Slightly hurt as well.

Cannot win some days! Will leave here for a while.

sorry....

Hi Ladies,

It is obvious that you both care about each other when you read this thread. I think we all need to have people listen to us and we want to feel cared about. It is hard to post on here sometimes because it is difficult to tell who is on at a certain time. I wish there was some way to know who was out there. You both are very supportive of others on this site. This is one thing that I have been afraid of on these threads. I am so afraid of hurting someone's feelings that I don't offer suggestions very often. I even think about the thread that I have going with Jenny and others on the general boards. I wonder if I need to quit talking about myself and focus on others more. That is what makes these boards so interesting. It is a whole different environment and we can test out our thoughts and ideas on each other.

Thank you for your kind words.
You are so sweet.
I knew that I probably shouldn't ask that question but I did and now...I guess I suffer the consequences of being human.
I feel like I shouldn't post on SFB's thread now.

Hey MJ,

Don't beat yourself up over that question. You were just hurting and needed something that you weren't getting right then. We all say and do things that we wish we could take back. You immediately tried to let SFB know what was going on with you. She knows that you really do care. Otherwise you wouldn't come here and post and try to be helpful. I am definitely no good at conflicts so am probably not of much help, but I did want you to know that I care. I pray that SFB will look at your heart and know that there was something else going on and look back at your previous writings.

Hi SFB,
I want to be direct.
I felt like you didn't want to look at my issues yesterday....that is ok.
But when you asked me if I disapproved I answered honestly.
Now, I want to know why I offended you?
I do care about you and I also care about me too. If asking you if you care about me stirred up emotions in you....ok....

But in caring about you, I am wondering if I chose wisely?

Maybe I am so needy for friendship that I care unwisely?

I have lots of questions today?

It's me, I'm at a different location for work today. Different computer, the site here made me go thru the "pick a nickname" thing, I had to vary it a little because my original one is already used (yea, by me!)

So I will use this today but not after. I figure since the only difference is the e on the end I won't get in trouble?:)

Mj, yesterday was my bad. I take responsibility for it. I was so down, I can't describe it. Yes I felt stupid for being called self absorbed because I thought on my thread was my place to vent about my issues. Many here are self absorbed. I thought we'd been friends long enough for you to know I care. I am constantly doing things for others in my life, to the extent that I too often overlook my own needs. So to be called that when it is so untrue of who I am as a person really stung. Add that to the fact of it being a day from the gloomy depths of you know where, and ... it was too much.

If it makes you feel better, my night got worse, you were not nearly the worse thing to happen to me. But I am ok and won't vent on here.

I really looked to this place as a haven. My mistake, I just don't know where to unload now. Just like the rest of my life, everyone wants me to be there for them. I never get to be down or sad because others can't handle it, I never get sad ...

I guess I find myself amazed (why?) that this repeated itself even here.

Patterns.

How are you today? Cuz I'm sure you know, I do care! 😉

I apologize -- typing too fast. "Many here are self absorbed" -- I was thinking "Many here are as self absorbed" , came out wrong. Because we are. And you know what? It's ok!!

More people should examine their needs and ways these needs can be met. It's healthy.

Only unhealthy when it's done to the exclusion of others' needs.

As I was yesterday.

🙁 Bad day.
