    That’s great, you should always be supported by your family, in-laws or not. My family is the epidamy of dysfunction.

    • Yeah. otherwise, I think I might have been going nuts. I applaud you for being an adult instead of being a kid like a lot of idiots that are out now. It’s funny how they are abusing the system as a parent instead of trying to guide their kid. One example was that one dude who killed his toddler in the car during a very hot day. His 22 month old…[Read more]

    I wish I were lying.. My mom tried to OD herself yesterday while I was at the park with my daughter. They have been messing around with her antidepressants, she is in the ICU. She may get out tomorrow morning. If she is deemed mentally sane, on the other hand she may need to spend a few days institutionalized. I have no idea what she was thinking,…[Read more]

    I have a four year old who actually turns five on the twenty ninth, it is extremely difficult, My family is pure dysfunction and her dad and his side don’t help barely at all. Hardest job in the world! I applaude you for being able to contain four!!!

    • Thanks. I feel bad for you because you are on your own to watch your baby. If my hon weren’t in my life, I would have been overwhelmed on taking care of the kids by myself. I am so sorry about yours and your baby’s dad. My hon’s mom comes a lot in comparison to my side of the family. SO glad she comes over when she can. She does that just to see…[Read more]

    • How many kids do you have? It gotta be even harder as a single parent because you are the only one who have to take care of the kiddy or kiddies. I have four girls with my hon. They are between 4 to 13.

  • Just coping with yet another tragedy. Good thing I came home.

    • Hope all is ok

  • Thank you, I want to share because nobody should have to go through that. There is ALWAYS other options!

  • The thing about people like myself, its not that we cannot function normally. Its that we don’t have a clear understanding of what normal is. Some people do fine with working a normal job, attending normal functions, and steering clear of people who affect their lives negatively. The truth is, people like myself never had the foundation to build mental stability, and reaching it is extremely difficult. I am not saying that its impossible, just that as simply as it comes to some people, to others, it seems near impossible to work 40 hours a week, have healthy relationships, and do the daily functions that come so naturally to others.  Mostly because of the emotional ups and downs that come with having different forms of anxiety. If you don’t suffer from anxiety the best way I can think of to explain it would be an extreme unease in your stomach, breathing, mind, the inability to continue what you were doing before the anxiety attack, and an overwhelming urge to change environments. In my case, I hyperventilate, cannot stop crying, my entire body feels tight, I cant figure out what to do with my hands and often end up squeezing or clawing onto myself, I shut down to anyone who tries to comfort me, and until I go somewhere I feel safe, these symptoms do not cease, its not fun, it is extremely real, and something I wish more than anything I didn’t suffer from. Another issue when it comes to functioning normally is that these anxiety attacks have plenty of triggers, often associated with PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) I have had them hit me when I was employed full time, it is extremely embarrassing, and when your already in this state on top of being embarrassed, the embarrassment escalates the attack.  I have struggled with this as far back as kindergarten. When I was that young I had no idea what was going on, I would often have stomach aches, or diarrhea before school, and even get extreme cramps every time I thought of going to school. This made attendance difficult, not just then, but in my adult years now too. There are different forms of anxiety, I happen to have Anxiety, and Social Anxiety. I know what you are thinking, everyone gets anxious sometimes, whether it be taking a test, or deciding something important. That is normal, Anxiety disorders however are different. A person with anxiety lives in constant worry and fear, it makes them sick, it interferes with living a normal life,  and can be completely crippling. To someone without Anxiety, it can be difficult to understand, but Panic Attacks are no joke. They can strike with no warning, imagine this, an overwhelming feeling of terror that constricts you, causes a difficult time breathing, makes you shake, sweat, and go hysterical. Some people even believe they’re crazy during an episode. (You feel completely insane) I have even hyperventilated so much my hands and face  went numb and my mind became a confusing strange hysterical place, I was no longer in touch with reality, just a terrifying oblivion that nobody could calm me down from. People like myself truly can not guarantee this will not happen in a forty hour week at work. The thought of keeping your sanity eight hours a day, five days a week, adding new stresses from the job, and dealing with whatever you are dealing with at home does look impossible.  Social Anxiety on the other hand, is brought on by social interaction. It is an overwhelming fear of being around people who might judge you. You feel insecure and unsure of yourself. You don’t even want to be near a situation where you might be publicly criticized or ridiculed,  its almost as if you would rather be invisible which is why you generally enjoy alone time, one on one time, or spending time with people you are comfortable with. Stranger Danger is taken to a new level with this disorder. People with social anxiety can often be categorized as introverts, meaning they function best when not addressed by others in public. They come off as unfriendly, and uninterested sometimes. That isn’t the case, if you were alone with them, you may just see that the thought of being noticed is terrifying to them but they aren’t mean or stuck up. They can be highly intelligent at times because they have spent  a lot of time observing peers and strangers. Respect that they are reserved, and understand that even if you don’t understand why they are like this, that it is a real disorder. All too real to the person who has it. Hopefully I have given a more easily understandable description of these forms of anxiety. As someone who has to fight regularly to overcome the obstacles of anxiety, I hope the reader understands what a challenge it is to overcome anxiety. It is not impossible, however it isn’t just a hollow excuse, or a way to get out of working, school, or any other situation that includes other eyes on you. Imagine feeling this way, I am not saying it isn’t important to get out of your comfort zone. (I am actually more supportive of taking baby steps into being able to cope with life then I am medication) I am just saying, patience, understanding, kindness, and empathy go a long way for people like myself who suffer from this crippling mental illness. If it were as easy as just getting through uncomfortable situations I would say it, because I also happen to be brutally honest. Even if it doesn’t work in my favor, anxiety isn’t like that. It takes understanding, feeling safe, and diligence in working through situations in your head to have this illness take a lesser effect on you. Mentally, physically and emotionally, this illness can cripple you in an instant.

    We’ve all had to do it. Low on cash and extremely hungry. Ramen to the rescue!! But eating Ramen noodle soup can be not only depressing and unhealthy, but also unsatisfying! Here are some Ideas for ways to spice up your ramen noodles and not break the bank!!

    To enhance broth flavor, here are a few options. For a spicy spin on your noodle soup, Srichacha is very good! You can also add chili sauce, or even sesame oil! If you are into sea food even a little oyster oil can go a long way!!

    To make your ramen noodles more healthy, and filling fresh vegetables can do wonders! Try adding a little green onion sliced up, cut some slivers of a yellow onion, add spinach, broccoli, adomame beans, carrots, bean sprouts,  you can even put mushrooms in there to create a meal that is not only visually satisfying, but also healthy!!

    To add some protein into the mix, you can simply add canned chicken breast into the occasion, my personal preference is shrimp and a hard boiled egg! You can really add any kind of meat, as long as it is already cooked when you put it in there! Steak, strips of chicken, or pork, barbequed pork, or any kind of fish

    Even making a simple broccoli, cheese, and chicken ramen can turn a once semi boring meal into something enjoyable and satisfying!!

    Just because you’re low on dough doesn’t mean you have to eat like a hobo!!
