The Silence Of Suicide
I’ve tried to commit suicide 3 times. I realize that will change people’s opinion of me, and that’s sad. But I’m sick of keeping it quiet in case it embarrasses someone else. Someone in the world takes their own life every 40 seconds and that needs to change, soon.
I'm Proud of My Culture, But Not Too Proud
It’s pretty typical for first generation Americans to “grow into” their culture. If you’ve been around the block a few times you know the routine. Grow up getting teased for your culture, mocked by stereotypes, and trying desperately to “blend in.” Eventually, you go to college, make more friends within your culture, maybe even join an ethnic dance group, cultural organization, or religious organization. Four years fly by and you graduate with a newfound appreciation and love for your culture.
Visitation Hazing This is what started happening during my weekend visitations. He began bringing his woman aka Gabrielle's new mommy to pick up/ drop off to upset me and rub in his new life. She felt so entitled to continue harassing me that she was recording me as if she had a reason to or was part of my custody case. He even had his son recording me. I'm sure they would play these back and laugh. Just like he did with the pictures he took of me just before he left me homeless. I have no idea where these pictures went or who took them.
Yes, its all about ME
As above so below. As within, so without. In order to find a balanced functional state of equilibrium, we as humanoids need to learn to remember this basic rule, or universal law per say.
With COVD-19 making people ill all over the world, nothing will ever be the same again. The hope for everyone hangs in the balance. But for me, hope is what keeps me going.

Dear Mary, You saved my daughter’s life. I want to thank you for that. It always hasn’t been easy for her. She started drinking at a young age. Before she found your organization, Mary’s Hope, she was drinking a quart of Vodka every day. She lost her job because of missing work and was often sent home because she was too drunk. She eventually lost her home and her children. After that, she became homeless. When she wouldn’t answer her calls, I would drive around all hours of the night looking for her to make sure she was OK. If I could not find her, I would cry myself to sleep.
My 2020 I was completely lost before 2020 and during 2020 for that matter. I was in a mentally and verbally abusive relationship, I hated my job, I transferred to something different and hated it more. I was to the point that I felt imprisoned every single day. I was in a constant see-saw of anxiety and depression and I had no option to get out because I had bills and I had to work.
Hi! I'm Angela and I'm bipolar AF. Yeah, you know what that means. Or do you? If you've been here, done this, then maybe you do really know. If you live with someone and love every second of them, up or down or in between, you might know. If you've educated yourself or otherwise picked up some psychology along the way, you might have an idea.
