Friedeggs,

Thank you for checking in. When "it rains, it pours." I've been battling a GI virus, riding the emotional rollarcoaster, and enduring the pain that insists on taking up residence in my body. I ended up spending much time between hot baths to soothe me and snuggling up to Mandy.

I did end up making it to church yesterday, albiet a wee bit sick still... The sermon, of all topics, was on Marriage, committment, saying your vows before God. At first I was upset by this because I questioned divorcing my ex over his abuse of me, viewing divorce as wrong but the more I listened, the more the message changed. It was about how men treated women as property and for whatever reason could divorce them. That the men, did not love their women as God intended.

I hope you are doing well. Hey, it's Monday... Anyone want to climb right back into bed besides me?

I would Bonnie, but I don't want the GI virus. LOL. I hope you are feeling better. Cat snuggles can cure lots of aches.

(((((((((((((TRIGGER))))))))))))))))))))))))

I have the GI virus under control at the moment but I am still riding that darn emotional rollar coaster. I'm frustrated and angry.

Do any of you feel as if you fight the same battles over and over? History keeps repeating, just at different times, different places, new people?

I'm battling Housing... My last apartment was a nonsmoking, yadda, yadda, yadda... supposidly and my lease and tenant rights were violated. Because I stood my ground, Housing threatened to evict me and I got lawyers involved. The solution was that I would allowed to transfer to my current apartment, a brand new property and building, it would be strictly nonsmoking, safe and secure, yadda, yadda, yadda... and I'm back to fighting the BS. I have submitted my concerns about my lease violations all the way up to the CEO.

Nothing can be simple and certainly one battle at a time can't be had... just dump the whole kit and kaboodle on me...

Why must I continue to have to fight just to exist in this world? So guess who SH'd? I tore my scalp up again... ripped out some of my hair, dug up my arms and one leg with a razor... grrrr... I'm back to being my pessimistic self. Wonder why... After all life is just peachy keen... (sarcasm)...

I hope you all are having a better time of it all...

Bonnie

Keep standing up for your rights. Especially if those right are in writing. You deserve to live in a safe, caring environment. You don't deserve to have your rights violated every time you turn around. Take care of the wounds, gently with some antibiotic cream or something to keep them clean. Let them heal. It will get better for you.

I hope you are taking care of yourself tonight (treating wounds, soothing your emotions). I know it's hard, but like Lexismom said, keep fighting. Your rights are no less significant than anyone elses. I fight every day I step out the door for respect - It sometimes even works.
You are loved here - come & rant if you want - I know it helps me from harming sometimes.

Thank you lexismom... I cleaned the wounds and used a vit e, aloe blend along with triple antibiodic cream.

I just want to climb back into bed and stay there but I have my therapy appointment today. I forwarded all conversations, etc to my therapist from housing.

Maybe I'll ask for a case manager who can fight everything for me when it all becomes too much...

Hugs,
Bonnie

Kate_Te,

Thank you. I did end up treating my wounds and I watched some funny programs, 2 Broke Girls, How I Met Your Mother... then took my night meds early and went to bed with Mandy.

I can not wait for therapy to be over today... I intend to put my pj's back on and climb back into bed...

I truly do love you all here.
