How on earth are you supposed to have any joy in life when you're in your own personal hell. My family is back home and so now i am surrounded by the people I love more than anything in this world. Yet I have never felt more alone then I do right now. I just want to know when does life get better or easier. I am so tired.

I didn't think you acted on it. You do have to be careful with what you do with those thoughts. At my lowest there was a night I did something I shouldn't have.

I have told you a lot of our communication is by email. I wrote an email that turned into a note. It actually turned into a good thing. I really examined what I had in life. I decided to keep it to read it when I got down. It was never meant to be seen by anyone. A couple days later I meant to email her something else but accidentally sent the note. I realized it a few minutes after I sent it. I begged her to delete it. But you know how suspicious everyone is during this time. She wanted to read it so we compromised and she waited till we were together to read it. The pain and sadness on her face I will never forget. How she cried as I explained how it all came about. That was not a fun evening. So yeah just be careful in those moods.

Been ok, just realizing I think I am at a point where I think it’s as good as it gets. Haven’t been on for a while. Was just having a bad evening in my head. Have missed you guys.


Life seems to go in Peaks and Valleys. The Valleys can be tough. But there are ways to make it better. Find encouragement where ever you can. I like the encouragement I get from my church friends. I especially like our small groups there - where we encourage and pray for one another. Plus we read the Bible - which has lots of encouraging verses in it. Check out a church near you and see if they have a support group you would like. Keep trying until you find the right one. Prayers for you!
