dementedxcore - talk about your issues

Hey, y'all! I know it's been awhile since I've posted. Sorry about that. ;___; I still love y'all!! <3<3<3 X infinity. ^_^

My grandmother found something in the newspaper a few years ago that she thought I would like. The clipping is in bad shape, so I typed it up in Word. I really enjoyed it, and reading over it again made me think of my problems and how I try to do things for the future, never for the present. It helped put things in perspective for me.

I thought y'all might like it as well. I'm not going to put it in a cut, 'cause I know people hardly ever click those. x_o;; But if someone gets upset 'cause I didn't, tell me, and I'll put it in a cut for ya.

Enjoy!!


*JUST FOR TODAY*
Author unknown


Just for today, I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all my problems at once. I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today, I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

Just for today, I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things I can and accept those I cannot.

Just for today, I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought, and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

Just for today, I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I will not speak ill of others. I’ll improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking. I’ll refrain from improving anyone except myself.

Just for today, I will do something positive to improve my health. If I’m a smoker, I’ll quit. If I’m overweight, I’ll eat healthily – if only for today. And just for today, I’ll get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it’s only around the block.

Just for today, I will gather the courage to do what is right and take responsibility for my actions.

Well, My name is Kristy, I'm only 20 years old and pregnant right now. I'm 7 months woho! =) Being pregnant is the thing I have a problem with it's the childs father and I actually just gave for some advice since I'm sure people are going through what he is or have been through it. It's about his addiction. He's honestly trying really hard to change. he's an older man (38) and he's been hooked for a while. He started rehab through his probation last week. I don't think it's gong to help but I guess all anyone can really do is hope, and pray and wish he can become a daddy and a boyfriend to me and his baby.

Now onto my problem and how I feel about it and questions about how to help and what to say.

Just a thought. I wrote this a couple of months ago in my journal userinfo...

"But you know what? You have to live life for the moment. Take every second and enjoy it. My time at uni will be a constant reminder to me about just how low my mood and quality of life can go. I never intend to put myself in that position again, and neither should anybody else. If you feel upset or sad or angry at something, CHANGE IT. And don't listen to country music, new scientist says it increases the rate of suicides amoungst Americans (the rest of the world not studied)"

...I know it's not much help, but I like how it sounds. I like the message. The problem in my case is that i've changed things as far as they can, and until I get a job and get out of my parent's house and somewhere with the boi, they can't change again. But... Its just something I like to keep on my info.

Very frustrated.

I'm taking something all-natural to help me sleep, because when I'm having my bipolar "ups," they come with insomnia. For some reason, I only sleep halfway through the night. I wake up at like, around four in the morning, and can't fall back asleep. So then, I have to lay there because my husband can't sleep unless I'm in bed, and all I can do is think all these miserable things... about infidelity and how my friend Callie is getting married to someone she shouldn't, and how my ex-best friend hates me...

It sucks and I hate not being able to sleep. Sleep is the only time my mind gets its rest.

It was really hard to get up this morning. I woke up, and then I just kept sitting up, telling myself I had to go to school, think of something I didn't want to deal with today, and then lie back down. I did end up going, although I'm not sure what my motivation ended up being. I feel this way about a lot of things in my life, like two parts of me are always arguing with each other. Sometimes I think of them as being a rational and irrational part, though I'm not sure if that's really an accurate decision. This morning, the rational side won out. But most of the time, it seems like the irrational part wins, the part that wins when I DON'T get out of bed, or when I cut, or whenever I do anything else bad to myself. I wish I knew how to get rid of that voice, the part of me that takes everything negative in my life and controls me with it. But most of the time I can't seem to say no to it. Eh...am I making any sense? Does anyone understand what I mean?

Hello, I just joined this community - All the cool people have communities and I want to be in one. Okay, I'll keep it brief -

My name is Kaylynn, I'm 19. I got married a little over a year ago, to a boy one year younger than me. He was 17 when we married, I was 18. I am without a job and without a goal or aim in life. In late October, my husband had sex with another girl - during a drunken, foolish, very sexually permissive night. I chose to stay with him because we love eachother and because I know he's sorry. I am an ex-cutter and I've been diagnosed with bipolar II and borderline traits. This made the cheating experience extra hard. Being without a job, I'm without proper therapy or meds, and am trying all-natural treatments and seeking some measure of balance and happiness.

I hope I can just come here when having my "bad" days, and find support from others going through similar things. <3!

here's a rant to flamers i found on a forum (www.gaiaonline.com) and i wanted to share... but... it can be triggering to cutters (trust me... it is... >.<)  and if you're afraid to go back to cutting or are trying to stop, don't look at the rest of this entry... k?  thanks! :)


this is written by a girl that goes by the screen name "I_am_a_girl_in_RL" and the link back to the forums is here


... read at your own risk ...Collapse )</span>


it struck so close to home for me, and most of them are true for cutters...  just had to share this... oh, and, i didn't edit it at all, so, yeah... ^.^
