I totally understand. I'm on meds and the depression never seems to stop even though it should. I play the cheery, chipper girl my friends and family want to see. But when I'm alone all I am is sad.

'I'm Too Embarrassed by my thoughts and feelings to keep a diary'
I completely agree! I was embarrassed writing my secrets down for this swap! Its like its ok when they are in your head, but once its written down its real and you feel like it shouldn't be.

This round is closed, but keep an eye on the Swaps forum for a round 3 Smiley Im sure someone will be organizing one once this round is over (Hopefully after Xmas so I can participate again!)

I'm not a woman, I'm a force of nature.

knowing that the world needs to change is much closer to making a change than a lot of thinking... you're on the right path!

the world won't take you seriously until you're fifty something... and elected to an important office... like president (and then, a lot of people will take you less seriously)...

"I don't like being called a ________ because I don't feel like an adult yet. I'm in my late 20's." some of the words fell off and the ones that were in the envelope were cut and pasted in MS paint... in what i believed were the right spots...

To the person who doesn't tell their age online because they're 15. I think that's a good thing. I'm 25 and I already forgot what it aws like to be 15. I can tell you I'd probably judge you and think "bah you're only 15". I remember being young and thinking how I was never going to judge young ppl because I was always judged based on my age. It REALLY pissed me off when I wasn't allowed into a conveniance store when there were already 4 ppl in there.

Awhile ago on the net I had some great conversations with a fellow vegetarian. She really got me thinking on so many issues and I had a BLAST talking with her. I was BLOWN away when she said she was 14. I thought she was older than me just be her speech alone. I was very impressed and it really got me thinking about all that I mentioned above.

Being with you hurts:  I can totally relate to you on this one.  I got lucky, though, and circumstances changed.  I hope something makes it right for you, with or without them.

Wanting this body:  You and me both!  I still remember being skinny!!

Growing up:  Sometimes I really feel this way, too.  That's the joy having having kids.  I can live through them!

No one there at 1am:  I have felt like this, too, and realized I needed better friends.

Internet drama:  IT DRIVES ME NUTS.  I was a target a few years ago and I just wanted to slap them.  I refused to play and I refused to be anything but ME, which was part of the reason they kept on me.  Grown women acting like children.  It was sad how easy it was for them to hid behind anonymity.

Cramped for time:  I felt like that, too.  But it forced me to dig deep and I am glad I did!!

Going to be OK:  That's great that things worked out!  Congrats!

Our Perfect Day:  I hope it was just the day that wasn't so worth it!  Good luck!

Infertile:  I used to feel the same way, at least for awhile!  Obvously it didn't last!  I have 4 kids.

MySpace surveys:  I am ashamed to admit I sometimes do them out of sheer boredom!


Seasonal Depression:  Sometimes I wonder if I have that.

Throwing away contacts:  I never thought of it that way when I toss mine!  I probably will now!

Porn:  I don't know what the right response is, so WAY TO GO?!!  Smiley  I love this; it made me giggle!

Vegas:  I am glad for you that you found what makes you happy!

American History:  I have a show like that, too!

Saggy boobs: If it works, I WANT TO KNOW, because mine could use the help!

Thank you:  What a sweet card!  I bet most people never even think of that!  KUDOS to you!


Christmas:  I don't hate it, but I definately agree with you on the gift thing.  I make most of mine now to avoid all that!

Language:  Don't you love people who correcy you, when they are ALWAYS making the same mistakes?!

Aching:  I think it is possible to ache in the uterus, the heart and the soul.  I hope you get your wish so much!

Relapse:  I would really like to hug you right now!  Maybe that scar can serve as a reminder to help you.

Internal wounds:  I think those are worse than the physical.  I hope you find your way through it.  This could have been my ex-husband,...

Which gender?:  In my heart, it isn't about gender.  It is about the heart and the person, not their organs!  It is about you they make you feel and how you are for each other.

Living alone:  Sometimes I feel that way, too.  But in my case, it is living with another adult!  The kids are fine, but sometimes having 2 adults together,... fireworks!

Smoking:  I think this is my hubby's secret!!

Really Love Me:  I think everybody feels this way sometimes!!


Good listener:  That could be written by me, and it drives me nuts.

My aim is true:  That is a really poignant card!


Keep out:  Oh, there are some I could apply this to!

Saving the world:  It does seem so daunting when you think about where to begin.  But there are a ton of small things that DO make a difference.  And I love your drawing!

What to do:  My problem is I want to do too much!

Gifts:  I think homemade are better and more personal.  I would rather have that any day!

Seal & Heidi:  I LOVE that card!

Yoga:  I am sorry, but I giggled.  I just may be able to relate to that!!

Secrets about him:  That could be mine!!


Chinese food:  Somehow, it just tastes better that way!


Depressed:  I can kind of relate to this,  I hope things clear for you very soon!

Atheist:  I can imagine and I can totally sympathize!

245lbs:  That's why I make so many of my own; they fit better and look better!

Affairs:  I knew my stepmom was cheating before Dad did.  He wouldn't believe me,... and it was with MY then-husband!!  How's that for Jerry Springer?!!  Smiley

As good a mom:  This card was so sweet!  You are so lucky to have a mom like that!


Get away:  I frequently think like this but never get farther than the bath tub!!

Crazy colors:  I'd do it, but the stylists are too snobby in this town to do it!

Buying yarn:  I so hear you on this!

Older men:  There is not a thing wrong with an older man!

Talking with God:  I don't think you are a hypocrite, just human!

Grandfather:  This one made me cry.  I can't relate because I adored my grandfather.  He died 10 years ago and it still hurts me every day.  I am so sorry that you had a bad situation with yours.


Embarrased by your thoughts:  I use mine for just that reason, to get all those things out that I can't tell anyone.


Changing the world:  Just one little thing at a time will help!

15yo:  I don't think it matters WHAT age you are for that to happen!!

Feeling like an adult:  I am in my late 30s and sometimes don't feel like an adult!!


I love my hubby, but the Army doesn't pay enough for my crafty habit!

I have two new ones,...!

I get this one, but I am biased because of having been on chemo for it!  But other cancers ARE just as important!!

This one made me giggle because it sounded like something I would say!

"My best friend is a better kisser than you are"
   In my experience, when you kiss someone who is your best friend, as opposed to just someone to kiss, or even a bf/gf, it's always better  Wink

[front] "As much as I hate her, I wish she would call.."
[back] "I'm sharing this with you because that's her name too." (my name)
   I have a friend who I hate, but I will wish she'd call too...

"The person I consider MY BEST FRIEND lives over 800 miles away. She has tons of friends and is the most wonderful person I know. Everyone loves her. She's happy. Besides her, I only have one other good friend. I'm not sure anyone likes me anymore. I'm not that happy. I wonder who she thinks is her best friend... I still (selfishly) want to be her favorite"
   I relate to this one- I have this issue where I always want to be everyone's best friend, even if they aren't mine. I always want to be liked best.

"No one believes we are in love"
   As long as you know, thats all that matters.

To the person who doesn't give out your age. It still happens to me at 28 & I'm more mature than most 50yr olds. People at work talk down to me because I sound even younger than that. Until I tell them I have been working here almost a decade. You have to pretty much put them in their place......It feels great to stump them  Wink

P.S. I deal with 100+ different people per day, you are already way more mature than 1/2 the US just by being able to navigate the internet and to be able to complete a sentence in a cohesive intelligent manner.
