Wow thank you so much for such kind words. I'm sorry I am just responding but I've been working very hard on getting my support site up and running. If you need a shoulder or someone to vent to I'm here. I've been through a lot and just when you feel like you can't take anymore you push yourself a little harder. You WILL MAKE IT! I know you will and if I can have faith in you then you certainly should have faith in yourself. Please let me know how things are going for you. Also, check out www.ecigchic.com if you get a chance. It's my own personal site I've put together which is sort of a support place for anyone in difficult times. It's almost done so please bare with the construction. Please pass the site on to your family and friends as I really want to make it a place for women to just be themselves without judgement or negitivity.
You are amazing and I'd love to chat sometime if you ever find the time with everything going on. I'm on a similar mission. If I had a car right now I'd be doing a lot more than sitting online thats for sure. So many woman are stuck and without the means to get out of a rut there is not a lot of hope. Thankfully I've been able to pick myself up from addiction and domestic violence so not having a car, I can deal with lol. Please read my page because I have also shared my dream of opening a non profit and would love to chat about it!! I'm just finished with Rich Dad Poor Dad which has taught me a lot. If you haven't read it please do. I'm taking what I learned and getting creative online because I just feel the right opportunity is out there, I just have to find it!!!
Good Morning!! I'm starting my day with a cup of coffee and working on my blog! I hope to put it up sometime this week. There are a lot of options for people in rough situations just open your eyes and get creative. Wish I had a magic answer but I'm still searching myself. Take a deap breath and close your eyes. Sometimes we get our brains on overload and need a moment to think. With technology today, there is alot of opportunites and I'll be posting good ones if I ever find them. GODBLESS!
Keep your head up girl! I'm a single mother of 2 girls and survivor of domestic violence and addiction. I'm 7 years safe and 4 years sober. I have family but since my familly believes I burned my bridges and do not deserve any more chances I am moving on without them. I have no friends and life has been rough to say the least. I have my kids though and so do you!! You are a woman and have the power to pick yourself up and be stronger than EVER! If you ever need a shoulder to lean of (virtual haha) please I'm only a message away. There is nothing that will shock me or make me judge you because chances are I've already seen it or done it. Please for yourself and your children call and find a church and if you can't get to the church for whatever reason ask them if they have transportation help. Don't stop at the first no you hear, keep going until the right church comes along and before you know it you'll have many many people not only giving you the love you need but opening doors you never knew existed. God Bless!
Hiya!! You're such an inspiration and I personally want to thank you for your links on so many different topics. I don't know where to begin lol!! Anyway's I wanted to drop a line and let you know I"m snooping around your page and will be for quite a while I think!! If you ever have a few moments to chat with me I'd be honored!! Thanks again!
Just wanted to say HELLO! I haven't been online in a while and didn't want anyone to think I had vanished!~ I'm still here and slowely but surely helping myself to do what it is I have to do to get my life on track! It feels so good to finally be doing more to help myself instead of waiting for my magical savior to come and rescue me LOL! Sometimes we get stuck looking for the help we need when we should be looking to help ourselves. Dont get me wrong, there is times I want to throw the towel in and say enough is enough!! In the end I know that all this hard work and aggrivation will pay off. At least I hope soo :) Sobriety is the life and being free of domestic violence is rewarding me in so many ways each day. I have a lot of stress and anxiety but I'm learning to see the big picture and thats so helpful :)
Thought Id stop by and say hi to everyone and offer my virtual ear! There isnt much you can say or do that would surprise me. While I cant offer financial help I can offer some kind words and some great advice for those contemplating sobriety or suffering from domestic violence. I have been sober 3 years and free of my abuser for 7. IF I DID IT ANYONE CAN! Holding the pain in will do nothing but cause you stress you dont need. Anyways stop by my page and read my story. I just hope it can help someone realize it is possible to break the cycle!!!
Wow, thank you so much for this. I think it should win some kind of award!! At least be focused in a health blog. Im not beiing sarcastic. I felt like you are speaking to me. I am 29 and everyday since I was 15 has been a roller coaster of pain, anxiety and at 29 Im realizing that I missed every chance others have to enjoy their youth, or live the college life because my life was always focused on what I could do to make myself feel better. For years I popped vicodin then it went to percocet and thank GOD I caught myself once I became imune to them. I now am 3 years sober and I wish my family could understand that I am not mental or crazy as they used to hint at and now as time has progressed they seem to be as bruatal as ever reminding me each day of my failures and telling me Ill never change. Little do they know the changes Ive made for the condition I have is virtually impossible for alot of people and the fact that Ive done it alone with no supportive shoulders or loving family makes it even more of a miracle. I refuse to go back. Ive used it as motivation. They have the problem not me. I feel as though ive become some sort of non human being to them. Like I dont exist and dont have feelings. When I comment on anything they just act as though my thoughts are less than intelligent and thus dont deserve a response. If they do respond its usually telling me to stop talking so loud or asking me if I have to make everything about me. ANYWAYS. I guess my ranting point is that I read this and it just made me feel as though for the first time in my entire life there was one person who got me. For that I THANK YOU because I thought I was alone. I am what I like to think pretty, intelligent, friendly, spontanious chick who feels like something has taken my life from me. I no longer can pop some percocet to socialize which has made me a prisoner in my own home NO WAIT my parents home.... I have to find the strength to overcome this because Im certainly not helping my physical or emotional pain staying here. You have inspired me to do some research into my symptoms. I always just knew I had a chronic condition simply because my DR told me so... now Im going to read up so I can not only tell myself what i have to do to change it but help others whos loved ones dont quite get it. I might not have the ability to save my parents love for me but maybe I can help someone else from losing their family like Ive lost mine. Thank you ... you are so on the money with this one!!
I would just like to offer a shoulder (virtual shoulder that is) to anyone facing the struggles of addiction or domestic violence. All to often we are focused on our own needs so much that we forget there are others out there that might be able to benefit off of our own knowledge. While I havent found a way to get out from under my current struggle I have found a way to help others on here feel like they arent so alone. I have been blessed to give others some advice on problems I too faced and overcame. I am a woman who has been there done that..... By that I mean there is nothing that you can tell me that I would pass judgement on b I am ecause chances are Ive been in your shoes. I am a SURVIVOR. I have been free of my abuser for 7 years and addiction for 3 years. If I could do it ANYONE CAN. I also quit smoking 3 months ago and let me tell you it was the easiest thing I ever did. YES, I did it all thanks to the e-cigarette and if you haven't heard of one then I suggest you google it or message me and Ill send you some links. I would put them up here but I dont want anyone to think Im trying to promote anything.
So with that being said this site has given me alot more than I expected. When you know you have made an impact on someone who is as down and out as you are it will make you feel like you are making a difference. There are so many people on here who give a HUGE amount of their life and time up to help others with advice. DONT BLOW IT OFF. You might have to do a little work to get out of your situation. Trust me I know, I've been pounding away at my keyboard the last 2 weeks. God doesnt give you more than you can handle. Check out the pages of the people on here that are under that little box tot he right saying they are the most active. Alot of them have some websites that you WILL FIND useful if you open your mind and decide to take action. I really hope this comes across as constructive advice and not criticism. Stress and depression suck and when you mix a personal crisis in the mix it can really sink you to a level that makes it feel as though simple things have now become a chore. I just believe in baby steps... REMEMBER: taking baby steps will LEAD TO HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENTS. If you dont believe me just read my story. I might have hit a roadblock but I will too come out of this and continue my journey toward my goal as you will also make it through this. I love the saying PAY IT FORWARD. If we all practiced that it would be a great start for all of us.......
Im in the same boat as you and its funny because I came for help and now find myself pretty much venting and helping others after just one day of using this site. I have found a lot of resources like nonprofitweb.com. Check it out! If you need to vent to someone or just a ear to listen hit me up and Ill do my best to help you out!!
I am so sorry to hear your pain. I am honestly choked up because I too am in no win situation or at least it feels that way. While I cant offer financial help I can give you a few possible leads and a place to vent when you feel alone.
I too had teeth trouble a few years back and found a company called care credit which I send 10 a month to pay off my charges. There are MANY dentists who accept this and they even provide you with names. i know this might be difficult for some with less than decent credit like I had but if you know of anyone who might help co sign its a real possiblity. You might also contact care credit directly and share your story. If this doesnt work try contacting your local dentists or oral surgeons because there has got to be someone out there that will help you.
A word of advice... while you feel desperate and frustrated at everyone you might want to save that for people who are closest to you. I mean you dont want to bite the hand that feeds ya if you know what I mean. Dont ruin a good chance by sounding like you are owed this. I know too well how frustrating it is to not be able to find the help you need in crisis but you have to take a step back and think about how your plee will come across to the others who might have been willing to help had you not sounded so bitter and resentful.....
just my opinion.... good luck and GOD BLESS.
