Mixed Feelings

I hate this Pandemic as much as anyone else, but the fact that this situation has turned so many people against each other - for so many completely unfounded reasons - has really made me depressed. I've always tried to look on the bright side of things - I've been dealing with cancer for the last 5 years, so I really have to try to stay focused in this situation, but I have to ask - why does it feel like so many people have kind of lost their mind? Life is not fair, and that becomes clearer with time. Everything has now gone wrong in some way for all of us - all at the same time. If this is your first time to not get your own way, please do not lash out at everyone around you. We are all in the same boat - whether you think so or not. I want to believe that we can get through this time - together, but it breaks my heart to see how many people want to turn on each other - at exactly the time when we should rely on each other. I actually thought about ending my life today, after being confronted by idiots who thought it would be a good idea to harass people who were wearing a face mask - waiting in line to get a blood test at Lifelabs. Don't they know that maybe other people actually have some real problems, and that they are trying their best to deal with them? My faith in humanity is at an all-time low.

Health

I’m worried about my husband’s health. It’s gotten worse during the pandemic. He eats like crap, over eats, and hardly moves. I can’t say anything or he freaks out and lashes out at me. I’m at a loss. Really worried as his health is obviously declining.

Finally happened

I'm officially Married with Children and I completely understand how Al Bundy was disenchanted by the world.

Homeless

I have been homeless for the past 2 months. I have a fulltime job but I don't have enough to pay first and lasts plus a security deposit. Its a viscous cycle. Two days after I became homeless my gf dumped me. Its become a daily struggle just to wash my clothing, shower, etc. I now understand why homeless people use shopping carts. Otherwise you are lugging around all of your possessions all day long. My only solace is that the homeless community is very loving. I have never met so many genuine down to earth people. These people will share the little food they have or clothing with you. If Vancouver was full of people with this type of compassion and love it would be an amazing place to live. Instead I have Vancouver guys bragging to a homeless guy about how much money they are making and what a great real estate investor they are. I had one guy tell me he spend $3000 on his shoes but couldn't spare any food for the food shelter. The worst part is how Vancouver guys feel that they can just tee off on you anytime they want. Your sleeping on the street and they will kick you to wake you up while their girlfriend laughs in delight. This has happened on multiple occasions. The next time you see a homeless person realize they are a person and deserve basic human dignity.

I don't do Facebook

I'm sure people have probably posted about this many times, but I digress. So glad I finally closed my Facebook account for good. It brought out the worst in me and nearly ruined my life. Being on that superficial platform nearly cost me a great deal of my sanity and dignity as well as my health. Getting rid of it permanently has made me a much better person. I can't emphasize enough just how gratifying it feels to be free as a bird. And Whoever wants to stay in touch with me can either send me an email, text or better yet meet in person.

So lonely

I confess that I have lied in some of my posts to get a little bit of attention. I really miss the affirmations...

What is fun?

I used to walk around stores and malls, watch films in the movie theatre, sit in cafes drinking coffee and read or write for hours. I used to travel. I used to love the sauna, visit the gym and go to restaurants. I used to hang out at friends houses. Few if any of these things feel safe or wise to do anymore. My friends have moved away. I am left wondering what is fun in my life.

Where are my lemons?

My tree is no longer producing lemon fruit and I am frustrated and upset. I think I will have to cut this tree down to find closure.

Married Woman and Confused

I am married to a really amazing man. The problem is, I can't shake the memories of being with women. It drives me crazy sometimes. I want to be happily married but its so hard to let go of the thoughts. I search for other married women that can relate to me but I don't think anyone knows how to talk to other women about these kinds of struggles. There must be someone that understands. There must be other married women like me.

working the mask

No one really knows it but there's a set of facial exercises I do for toning. It's for tension release too but let's face it (pun) it's mostly an attempt to defy gravity. You can imagine that because they involve your face, when doing them you can look pretty ridiculous. What I've realized is that there's an unintended benefit to having to wear a mask. Over these past 18 months I've gotten waaaay more reps in every day than I used to! Walking, in the elevator, shopping, on transit...I've been doing my exercises and no one's the wiser. I do leave out the eye roll ones though, nobody needs that : D (exercised smiley face there)

I SAW YOU

Bicycling on the surface of the water

You were doing Tai Chi. I bicycled slowly, through deeply pooled water, not making even a ripple...
