Things are extremely bad here right now, about as bad as they can get.
So now because of all that I cant eat or sleep, i feel sick, cant see a DR, have a heart problem that is hopefully minor. Tons of other things complicating everything, i dont think i am going to make it and i guess i dont really care anymore. If i die i will see for myself if there is a Heaven and a God and if there is, then i will be happy and free at last. If there isnt..oh well, its beyond my control anyway.
My friends either cant or wont help. There is just too much going on,and without a small fortune and a good lawyer or other allies, i cant get out of this. It's hopeless, ive already tried.
But i'm probably not giving up just yet, possibly soon though. Very long story.
I certainly dont want to die. But i cant take anymore pain and abuse from people.

Hey - I promise, if ghosts can type...I'll still be here!
I'll let everyone know.

Like O2, Angela Harlem & Trash Can--

Thanks for the words of encouragement!
Unfortunately, I made some big/serious mistakes today God I wish I could take it all back (if anyone really wants to know what happened i'll tell you, i need to learn to talk to people anyway, and it is not like lots don't already know about it)

But again, Thanks for caring. . .

Hope you are feeling better about things by the time you read this ST. You dont have to talk about anything you dont feel comfortable with. But rest assured there are countless people here who are more than happy to lend an ear.

Or if you wanna talk to a complete stranger...(?~ Your sig kinda throws me! I dont THINK I know you do I? )

Im at angelaharlem@hotmail.com

Hope your troubles get some answers soon.

Here are some beautiful lyrics from the new ASIA album...

READY TO GO HOME

On the street below these walls
Where I used to walk
Now I can barely crawl
All this darkness rising tall
Lord, shine a light for me
I'm waiting to be called
I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin

Take this river to the sea
Where the delta flows
The tide is washing over me
Guide this soul to Heaven's door
Show me where tomorrow lies
I'm waiting to be home

I'm ready to lay down
I'm ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I'm ready to go home

Sometimes I lay down with these memories
Breathe shallow, deep inside of me
Time has run its course with me
And I'm ready to go home

When the evening shadows fall
When the time has come
I let defences fall
To surrender's to survive
I will give up everything
To those I leave behind

I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin

I'm ready to lay down
I'm ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I'm ready to go home

STU and Lovey,
Well, thanks to my new job, I just dont have time to visit this site much anymore. And right now I'm late to something else.

STU, I have made some HUGE mistakes in my life. H U G E !!!!!

But... I have to pick myself up, and keep going.

IF you believe in a Higher Power, then you believe that you have a chance. That you ARE loved and forgiven...

YOU'RE HUMAN... sorry, but you're just as faliable as myself and EVERYONE else...

Its ok.

GOD... I have to go!!!

(Damn Library and timed PCs!)

Lovey... I will reply soon!

( Let's try this reply AGAIN!!)

GOOD! Lovey don't give up.
Not every person out there is going to offer you pain and abuse. Many might... but there are a few good and kind people out there.
The trick is to seek them out.
I have no idea where or what you have searched, but maybe I can tell you a bit of my story.

Three years ago I WANTED TO DIE.
I WANTED TO CEASE TO EXIST. I hated myself. I hated my life. I wanted to die!!!!!


...but... I wanted to live... too.
I just wanted to stop the hurt. I just wanted help.
I didnt believe in God, either. Not anymore.
But I was raised Catholic and its all I knew.
I "crawled" to the nearest church.

I didnt believe in God, but the pastor didnt care, not then and there. He was there for me. He listened... He helped me. He offered hope.

... I still felt like shit.


There are NO "lightning bolt miracles"... None that I have experienced.
But there was "something". There was a man who listened. Later there was a community that listened.. and helped.
There is help. There is hope... There is a "Heavenly Father", and I KNOW He works through good people out there that actually care.
I dont know if you have a church. I dont know that you were raised in one, but I encourage you to reach out to one. EVEN IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD. I'm sure that most if not ALL churches will NOT turn you away.

AND IF ONE DOES!... well, it wasnt meant for you to begin with. Go to another.

They may guide you to organizations that can help you. No money? No medical insurance??.. I hear ya!!!

The govt may do lousy things, but there are things out there for you. No they are not the "best". Yes, there is waiting and long lines. BUT ITS THERE.

FIGHT! Fight dammit!! Dont give up.
Do all you can do to "save your life!"
You ARE worth it!!!

... and if you cant "save your life". If your illness is bound to take your life, then... pray... ask for strength, and peace in dealing with your situation.
"Grace"... comes in the darkest moments.
It does.

(I have to reply in sections because of these timed Library PCs)

Lovey, theres not much I can do for you but offer you a few words of encouragement... But YOU can find love and support ALL around you! Family?..no? How bout friends? No?? How bout an organization? A Church?

Not EVERYONE is going to turn away!
Seek...

AND pray.
Pray for the things in your life that you are grateful for! ... I bet YOU DO have a few things!
Pray for others. For YES, there are others much more less fortunate than you,
and humbley pray for help, and along with that, pray for the strength and inner peace to deal with whatever God's Will has instore for you DESPITE your best efforts ( Notice: despite you TRYING your best to seek out help and solutions)

I'll pray for you. Thats all I can do, but you know what!?
That IS a lot!
For NOTHING is impossible with God.

May you accept God's everypresent blessings, Lovey.

Peace.
