  1. I can't see this being a positive at all. Yeah, it is easy to say take the kids away, put them in foster care. In some cases splitting up siblings, causing even more damage. The parents may be useless, but that doesn't mean there aren't older teens taking care of younger ones who now will go into foster care to be cares for by strangers. While NC makes people work for welfare, they were also forced to cut child care so now some recipients can not fulfill their duty because they have no one to watch the child.

    Your post reeks of insecurity.

    Venus Williams - Really??

    I think her body is incredible also- results of total devotion to her craft. I do feel for her and Serena though, they have muscular bodies that most don't consider feminine at all. Even when they don't dress outrageously, I have read comments people have made about their bodies and looks which I'm sure must be hurtful to them. Perhaps this is their way of thumbing their nose at some of their detractors. I firmly believe if Maria Sharapova wore something like this, it would be more provocative than offensive in many people's eyes. I'm not condoning her outfit. Personally it's her decision and I couldn't care less about what others wear. I think if it wasn't lace it would look a tiny, tiny bit better. LOL

    Divorcing the Divorce

    I just love honest and inspirational writings. Good luck, we will be rooting for you. I had a similar thread on here about my struggles dealing with the aftermath of divorce. I am doing better now than before, so happy to be here- single and alive while moving toward my dream. Stay strong! :)
  6. Thank you for thinking of me Kolohe- I've been meaning to update, for some reason I can log on the other site from my phone but not this one, so now that I've bought a computer (yay for small victories:yeah:) I can update. I am doing much better. I sincerely believe that in regards to my divorce, my darkest days are behind me. I was not able to start pre-reqs as yet since I needed to move out of state temporarily and stay with family while saving up for a car. So classes are on hold until summer or fall, a bit disappointing but I can deal with it.:up: I am truly working on being happy and content even with the little I have. I know love will come along again in the future- I'm working on being a great mom and a great woman. I have not been back on any anti-depressants, hopefully I can keep that going. My health insurance will end sometime next year, I just hope I won't need any meds after that time. I know others have asked upthread, so I'll mention that I did file and receive child support AND spousal support for a year, so that can be a nest egg for me. I am truly blessed, even in the midst of this struggle. So to anyone who is struggling, you can do it. I went to bed every night, woke up every morning even when I had neither the strength nor the desire I'm ashamed to admit. Either way, I did it. Also it is important to do more than just exist. Try to find something, anything you enjoy and hold onto it. People come and go- we have ourselves as long as we are breathing, try to find some comfort in that. Also reach out to others online if there is no one in your life you feel you can speak to...it certainly can help. Thank to all my nurses and future nurse friends who have lent their ears/eyes lol. You are truly appreciated.:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat :loveya:

    Mercy - NBC show all about nurses

    This does look better than HawthoRNe, I hope it gets good ratings.

    Nursing Shows?

    Here you go! NurseTV- totally unscripted and 100% real. http://www.nursetv.com/
  9. I am a loner also, and I do find comfort in starting over even if it is with nothing- the hardest part is having to go through that as a mom, and the guilt that goes along with the fact that I should have done better for her. It wasn't her fault her parents couldn't keep it together. Thank you for your story- I will certainly remember your words. :redbeathe:heartbeat:redbeathe:heartbeat Thank you to everyone who contributed to my thread- I will revisit this thread often when I need the strength to go on.:up::up:
  10. Wow Carly- what an ordeal and you made it through. Thank you for sharing your story with me.

    Mercy - NBC show all about nurses

    There wasn't enough time between the shows for it to be a copycat phenomenon. They have/will all debut too close to each other for that. If anything the networks are trying to get another Greys Anatomy hit without it being centered around doctors since the comparisons will be too obvious.
  12. I'm just so tired, and feel I am running out of steam. I try my best to be positive and put on a brave front for my child, this divorce is hard on her also. I just feel so beat down at times. I have no home, no bed, a borrowed car. Over the next few weeks I'll have to find a place to live and even when I do, it will be completely empty save some clothes and toys. I'm bitter. I gave so much of myself in the relationship. It is over, no going back I can accept that. I didn't ask for this. He has cars, a house, no where near poverty level like myself. The anger creeps in and takes over me even though I try to keep it at bay. I should be happy to get a chance to start over with a somewhat clean slate, but it is a bittersweet feeling. I didn't want this, yet I have to deal with it. Please tell me it gets better. I'll be starting pre-reqs in the fall, in a new city, no family or friends. I don't mean to sound all 'woe is me' because I know there are many in much worse situations than mine. I just don't want to succumb to depression again at such a crucial time in my life. Anyone start over with nothing? Living a lifestyle of a single parent even though you didn't plan on it? How do you cope?

    Michael Jackson Dies of Heart Attack!!!

    :crying2: R.I.P I hope he can find peace. He was so successful yet had much ups and downs in his life. Whatever anyone may think of him- he is the King of Pop and it will be decades before anyone can match his entertaining talent. I remember watching his concerts and seeing grown men and women faint just from being in attendance. He achieved so much yet became comedy fodder to many because of his demons, which I personally believe had much to do with his loathsome father. I know he and Janet were estranged- I wonder if she regrets reaching out to him. Any word on who will get custody of his children?
  14. Oh cool. I was hoping I'd get to see more of Nurse Jackie.
  15. That's exactly what I did! Turned from TNT to Bravo...LOL. I have a dirty mind, but I wasn't sure what the pretty nurse was doing. When the patient himself talked about his 'dream' which was really reality, I became certain then that she was honoring her troops! Haha The scene when the nurse got stabbed went completely over my head. I thought she was in shock or just drugged up. LOL
