gotcha. It would be really nice to ot be on the verge of tears one minute and happy the next or have your heart beating out of your chest all day for no reason or be sick to your stomach all day or hide from well meaning people who worry and keep asking if you are ok and that only makes you feel worse for avoiding them.<br>
whew.

I'm constantly at odds with myself about the baggage from my crappy childhood and subsequent craziness. I can't say the majority of my life has been easy or enjoyable, but at the same time, the way I am now is what allowed me to be open-minded enough to go vegan. I feel that's better for the world than what I'd have done with myself as one of those happy little "normals," but my other side is angry at the perpetual inability to get out of angst-wallowing and the whole nearly complete social isolation deal. Of course, this inner turmoil just adds to the angst... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:">

We need a cut and paste thread and Snowcone's will be the standard psychological/psychoanalytic copy and paste.

I can relate, too, Snowcone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> While I'm not socially isolated (perhaps because I force myself on others <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">), the rest rings true.

I've been doing everything possible to get out of my lease at my apartment ever since my (now -ex) boyfriend took off and left me here. Not only is it too pricy for me to afford on my own, but I hate being here and just being reminded of him everywhere I look. There are so many technical and legal difficulties surrounding my situation that I hit wall after wall after wall with each attempt that I make to find my own place and leave. He dumped the legal and financial responsibility on me. Without warning. I am angry that I am doing EVERYTHING while he gets to live in his new apartment, not needing to worry about the consequences of what has been happening here as a result of HIM making the choice to leave. He is so immature and irresponsible it is UNBELIEVABLE. The staff that run this building are also not doing very much to help me, which makes it even more problematic.<br><br>
I can't even talk about this with very many people. When people ask what happened, I tell them and then I don't get much of a response. I guess they don't want to deal with an angst-filled Chrysalis.<br><br>
Today I finally decided that I need to stay here since nothing else I do is working. In the long run, it will be better for me. It just sucks. I now need to rearrange this place so that it doesn't remind me of him anymore. And I need to get him to give me back his keys. And he needs to pick up his stuff and if he doesn't I need to put it on the curb by a certain deadline. I have the ability to do everything that needs to be done. I am just so emotionally drained from it all that I want to curl up and cry all day but I can't because I can't allow this to take over my life.<br><br>
Sorry for blabbering but this is the gripe about your life thread. I am feeling very emotional right now, as I have made all my final decisions just a few hours ago.<br><br>
ETA: Other than that one thing, everything else is going well!! My life doesn't TOTALLY suck! Don't let me bring anyone down...

Seriously - congratulations for coming to a decision. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> Sometimes it's just so hard to get beyond the problem and move within your life. Sounds like you're there.

I'm way past being angry at the fact that every man in my life has been a user who expected me to take care of ALL of his needs and has also been a bad lay and BAD WITH MONEY.<br><br>
I figure life's too short to do what his parents and previous girlfriends should have already done (teach about money, life, sharing, and sex), especially when it comes to men over 30.<br><br>
Since breaking up with the BF some of our male mutual acquaintances have reached out to me, expressing an interest in getting into my pants. Not dating me, just banging me. Uhhhh no thanks.

Thank you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> A lot of my stress was coming from not knowing what to do. And running around like a chicken with its head chopped off. I'm a little excited at the idea of having more room for MY stuff here. I didn't even have room for my bookshelves because his DVDs that I don't even like were taking up all the space...<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Oh, and now that he knows about my decision, he has the NERVE to question me about it, judge me about it, and argue with me about my decisions that I have made about where to live. All the while ignoring the fact that it is NONE of his business (I'm not your girlfriend anymore, sweetie pie!!) and he didn't leave me with a whole lot of options, considering the way he just left me to deal with everything and has done NOTHING whatsoever to help. **** him.
