wouldn’t you know it. the minute I hung up the phone I got 3000% worse…. I feel so bad right now.
Can’t afford it, but have had to take the week off work because I am not 100% and the kid is NOT improving yet.
Oh well…. we aren’t going to be able to go away if we are still sick, so just have to suck it up!

Coping with Suicidal Thoughts
1. Promise not to do anything right now
Even though you’re in a lot of pain right now, give yourself some distance between thoughts and action. Make a promise to yourself: “I will wait 24 hours and won’t do anything drastic during that time.” Or, wait a week. Your suicidal thoughts do not have to become a reality.
2. Avoid drugs and alcohol
Suicidal thoughts can become even stronger if you have taken drugs or alcohol. It is important to not use nonprescription drugs or alcohol when you feel hopeless or are thinking about suicide.
3. Make your home safe
Remove things you could use to hurt yourself, such as pills, knives, razors, or firearms. If you are unable to do so, go to a place where you can feel safe. If you are thinking of taking an overdose, give your medicines to someone who can return them to you one day at a time as you need them.
4. Take hope - people DO get through this
Even people who feel as badly as you are feeling now manage to survive these feelings. Take hope in this. There is a very good chance that you are going to live through these feelings, no matter how much self-loathing, hopelessness, or isolation you are currently experiencing.
5. Don’t keep these suicidal feelings to yourself
Many of us have found that the first step to coping with suicidal thoughts and feelings is to share them with someone we trust. It may be a friend, a therapist, a member of the clergy, a teacher, a family doctor, a coach, or an experienced counselor at the end of a helpline. Find someone you trust and let them know how bad things are. Don’t let fear, shame, or embarrassment prevent you from seeking help.

Allyson Schwartz’s loss in the Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary for governor spotlights a trend in heavy spending on TV ads that could make it even harder for women to win office.
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
I just saw this frozen post and I was reminded of this thing my daughter does which is she watches frozen, and she waits for the perfect moment, hits pause and takes what she calls “Elsa Selfies” with her phone. She has a folder full of Elsa Selfies. That Elsa…
I had to get my stencil knife and I couldn’t find the blades.
Then I thought really hard about where they could be.
