I'm so fed up.*

All I've done is try and get my life on track. While everyone else has done nothing but talk trash and harass me. Then make sure to not want to help.

During your days you must think of something, what to wear, what to eat and then what else??? Do you ever think about the millions or billions of miles of outer space or visiting a star? Do you have a favorite topic you always think about?   Read More

Thank You *

Have you noticed the power of the phrase Thank You? For me it seems to conjure up other peoples time.

How to deal with caregiver issues.*

Ok so my nephew takes care of me and has been doing a good job I guess when possible. But being family it's kinda hard I guess to take care of because it's trying for both. That being said there's the issue of the person not working all the hours or over stepping. Yet the individual will put all the hours. You… Read More

Obsession over my issues? Or frustration*
