    sudden attack of emotion

    I was thinking a little while earlier today that I should put some kind of distraction action up here but I was taking awhile to try to figure out what... In the meantime something happened over here that started a flood of emotions that I wasn't really prepared for or expecting.

    Some days I just wonder if my being "sent here" isn't some kind of torture. It sure as heck feels like it right now. I'm not trying to be dramatic or anything... I just really wish I wasn't here and that FOR ONCE my family would listen to me when I'm trying to explain something to them, especially when it's important. So tired of it.

    Sorry, I guess that I just needed to put that out there. No need to reply or anything.

    Hope you were able to work through the emotions, Rose. Everyone should feel that they are heard and listened to and cared for and respected. The list goes on. I know you are here, just wish I could do more for you - like get you a plane ticket home, ha. (((gentle hugs)))

    Thanks. I'm still working through them. My head has been in a fog of anger all evening but I'm slowly starting to calm down a little. Every single thing has been setting me off though and that worries me because it's really not me.

    Oh, believe me, if I could I would buy a ticket home in a heartbeat... (((hugs)))

    I'm not sure if anger towards my family and their... trying to think of a better word but there isn't one coming that's nice, stupidity, is very healing. *sigh* There's no point in it because it won't do any good. I just cry when I get this angry anyway. Thanks. (((hugs)))

    Oh, I see...It's okay to be angry about all that, too. It's justifiable anyway. (((gentle hugs))) Sigh.
