Can you join some sort of club where you share the same interest? I seem to remember you having a dog - how about walking? Walking is great for clearing the mind, I find.

I'm obviously experiencing some sort of chemical imbalance because I've been having awful anxiety attacks lately. Today for example, I found out I went over my credit card limit and then that led to (and I have no idea how) Padfoot being hit by a car when I stop for gas this afternoon, and well things just went downhill from there. I wonder if it has something to do with the moon, weather pressure, etc. Whatever it is, I'd kindly like it to go away! Pronto.

Is he OK? Perhaps you've got a lot on your mind at the moment, and doggies do have a habit of dashing out suddenly.

Brenna, good lord - I hope Padfoot will be fine, and you too. Prayers with you again - and keep us posted ...

Unrelated, and not actually connected to *today* - but I tend to be confidential about the actual anniversary ... This.

The day which is tomorrow always reminds I'm forever alone. :(
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Lovely post, Diane. I "lost my mother" (as if I misplaced her, somehow) around Thanksgiving several years ago and it makes the holidays all the more forlorn.

I'm so so so sorry, in my hyper anxiety state, I forgot a few very important words in my earlier post. Padfoot did not get hit by car, rather I had an overwhelming fear that if I stopped to get gas that he would get hit. Everyone is fine, including myself. Not sure what happened yesterday to lead to such a hyper-sensitive state, but it has passed.

Again apologies!!

Divia and Nefret-have you ever thought of trying online dating? I've had several friends find their spouses that way. Just a thought. And perhaps for a little inspiration (which might not mean anything if you are in the UK) http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20569990,00.html

BEST thing today: Padfoot! Yaaayyyy!!! Scritching La Sidderista in dog-loving sympathy and joy. More yaaaaaaayyyyy!

fljustice - it's funny, I've never used that phrase. Dad died. It's not terminal to his soul, it's sad, but I don't do euphemism. He always deserved more respect than that. And I do try not to misplace his ashes. :rolleyes:

Dad's death was on my birthday (the reason that isn't disclosed anywhere online) and it's been nine years. I'm old enough I didn't want him to last a day longer at the time to "save" My Day - and, though it doesn't necessarily enhance social celebrations of *that* event, it keeps him close. I was blessed to have had him for a dad in the first place. I try to take joy in that - he is enough to make that easy.
