  1. what do you want to say right now? what are you thinking about? what's been on your mind lately? me, you ask?

    i wanna scream....can i scream??

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! i can't take it anymore!!!!!!

    ok, having a really hard time in life right now. i want to cry...i am crying. i hurt so bad. my feelings are hurt, my heart is low. i really don't like some things in my life right now. i'm really tired of everything that is going on. i need a hug, a kiss on the forehead, and someone to tell me they love me and care about me, and don't want to hurt me. i hate this. i am so tired... i don't know what to do anymore.

    Hang in there kiddo! Things are going to improve for your life once you get back in school, and get very very busy with being a Senior! :kiss

    You are at a very tough age right now, and there is nothing anyone can say to make the pain of being almost 18 go away.....anyone who has been your age once knows that.

    Here's a favorite song I used to sing that is one of Sandi Patti's songs. Hopefully it will calm you down so you can sleep tonight.

    In His Love is the title:

    In His love, there's a place where you can always hide away.
    In His love, There's no need to run, no need to be afraid.
    If the world's a sea of trouble, You can always rise above
    If you know that you are safely in His love.

    In His love, where all pain and sorrow quickly fade away.
    In His love, There's a bright tomorrow just beyond today.
    If your heart is filled with sorrow, if it's all you can think of
    Still there'll be a new tomorrow....In His Love.

    His love is never far away...Yet sometimes hard to see
    If we would take the time to pray, His love would flow through you and me.

    In His love, There's a place where you can watch the world go by.
    In His love, There's no need to hurry, everything's on time.
    When the world's a sea of trouble, You can always rise above,
    If you know that you are safely in His love.

    *********************************************

    Now...dry your tears up, inhale in deeply, and exhale slowly...repeat several times. Go to the kitchen, fix yourself a cup of warm milk, or hot herb tea, eat a slice of bread (or dry cereal in a cup), take two tylenol, crawl into bed (assuming you've already hit the hot shower to help you sleep better), and sleep like a baby. Say your prayers before you shut those eyelids now. :kiss

    You're gonna be alright, chick!! This too shall pass...Be mad/sad for a while, (nothing wrong with that) and then dry your tears, put your head up and keep going!!! You have so much to look forward to...I gotta agree with Renee, being almost 18 sucks, but it's not forever...you can get through this!!

    I always hated it when teenagers are told "these are the best years of your life" ---they are usually not!!! Of my 44 years on this earth the years between 15 and 20 were the hardest...I am sure your future will hold many special blessings...hang in there! :kiss

    Kristi, I hope you feel better. I've been feeling sort of similarly lately, so I don't think everything can be blamed on those almost 18 blues.
    PM me if you like, we can share.

    Well, I feel better, last night I talked to someone from the boards and she listened and I vented. I cried my little heart out until I had a panic attack with a wonderfully stuffy nose!! But eventually things calmed down a little, I said my prayers before bed, cried a little and finaly fell asleep, but woke up every hour on the hour....

    SO, thanks everyone for your help and concern. I love you all Now getting back to the topic of this thread....What do YOU want to say right now? Come and vent!!! I promise you'll feel a little better, and we've got the best advise in the house!!! If you don't feel better, feel free to smack me!!

    Glad to hear things are a little better... It does feel good to get things out! Don't get me started on mom/daughter relationships I'll bite...

    I'm under a lot of stress, but some of it good stress, moving, school starting back up...but I just don't want to hear about other people's problems (you guys don't count, I like y'all more, you don't just show up at my door!) I'm a good listener & like to help but I'm just throwing in the towel! I can't fix my parents problems, or my slightly dumba$$ boyfriend, or anyone else for that matter. I tend to take on the weight of the world & I don't know why. I need to quit doing that!!!!!

    I can't wait til I have the perfect excuse no one usually argues with, 'I have to study or go to class or whatever I'll check with you when I'm free'. AKA leave me alone, so I can use my free time for something useful like veging @ allnurses. :chuckle

    Thanks Kristi, that feels good :kiss

    Come on give it a try!

    sex is not the same as intimacy.....and i am starving for intimacy in this marriage of mine!!!

    my hubby knows all about sex.....we have great sex......we don't have anything close to intimacy....well.....sometimes he gets close enough to it, but most of the time, it seems to scare him.....it's like totally unfamiliar territory to him, and this is his second marriage (mine too). we've talked about it, but i don't think he gets it.

    so.............i would really appreciate some male advice from my allnurses brothers on here: question for ya brothers.......what is it about intimacy that freaks men in general out, or is it just my husband???

    in my first marriage, we had the best intimacy possible, but sex with him was soooooooo not there.....we had it, but i wasn't "feeling it".....anyone know what i mean here? speak up now!!!

    in my current marriage, things are just the opposite......the sex is great......but there's no intimacy, and i am learning that sex without intimacy stinks....and i don't think i can stay in a relationship without intimacy anymore. i'm in that stage of life that reaks of not "settling" anymore, but reaching for the "real juice in life". any advice.......i'm game for it right now. maybe i need to remarry hubby number one, keep hubby number two, and have the best of both worlds. not!!! helllllllll nooooooo....hubby number one wouldn't work......so......how can i up the ante in this marriage, or do i can it and move onward????

    please take this serious guys, because i am serious as a heart attack about this. :kiss

    well I'm not a guy:chuckle , but i definitely can relate to what you're saying.....I'm sort of in the same boat:imbar
    except I'm not married.
    I would love to hear an explanation from the guys on this subject
    as well!:roll

    Hmmmm Renee.... sounds like the beginnings of an interesting topic. I'd start a new thread about it, to really get the guys attention. I'm betting it will be at least a 10 pager, and will cause substantial hair loss, but will answer so many of our questions!
