 in response to cashay...   Have you considered going to a community college and studying and getting your GED? I don't know you but from what you've shared here, but in my opinion you seem to be a pretty bright and with it person, and would think that you'd be able to get your GED and go further without much trouble - maybe a few modifications if you don't learn the same way "the system" is set up to teach ... we don't all learn in the same way, and things like ADD or any form of dyslexia can certainly leave you feeling lost and behind, but there are many things to help now with those type of struggles. Just a few thoughts to kick around.

 in response to cashay...   How do you retaliate? It sounds like there's just a lot of anger and verbal and emotional abuse back and forth, no love nor respect .. is this correct? Sounds like a pretty terrible cycle and not so great way to survive everyday. I am glad your husband is working more .. as i would assume that he'll be able to put that extra energy, which turns into this abuse, somewhere more productive.

 in response to cashay...   Can I ask what you did, who you were with, where you were, etc., prior to 13 years ago when you got together with your husband? How were you surviving and supporting yourself? Were you working? And so forth. This clearly isn't my business, but I am curious as to what happened to put in you this position and how you were living before this all started.

 in response to Schmidty...   Just have had a few send me different messages in private and saying things that were kinda rude and just never said anything just not what I expected as someone who actually needs help so I will keep things to myself.. I know a lot have been burnt by people and its understandable so I won't complain and vent as everything I'm in has been my life choices and my decisions and I can blame a lot on economy but I'm trying to make changes and they just don't seem to fall into place.. as the old saying goes when it rains it pours and I want to thank the ones who sent prayers and thoughts of compassion and the gifts of caring.. Then on top of all Im going through I get the news of my oldest son is going to have to have a Biop on a 3 cm lump in his left lung that is active and all I can think is My son has cancer and it scares me but not sure till the biop on the 28th. And Schmidty you been nothing but nice and caring so your good.. Have a Great day all

 in response to Hoping for a Miracle...   Whoa!!! whoa! whoa! who is cursing you and calling you names.Yes you do have the right to live the way you want and it's true that we are all in the situations that we are in do to the decisions we mak, financially.Maybe some of the health issues.As far as the life decisionI can kinda see it most of the time but then there are other varibles that I just can't agree that it is all do to our decisions and the choices we make.
Just take it easy, collect your thoughts. All the worrying in the worldisn't going to change anything, just make you irritable, nervous,mixed up and give you a headache. Hard to think straight that way. Tomorrow will be another day.If there isn't anything imediate then take it as easy as possible.You are OK.

Hoping for a Miracle
My mind is almost in the state of pure confusion.. so much has whirled around my head and heart for the past week of wishing it would all just stop and go away and everything would be all peachy and normal and it just keeps coming at me. I'm so tired of walking the floors, crying, worrying, spazzing out, loosing it, begging, pleading, explaining myself ,I think I have finally reached the point of laying down and giving up. I believe in the power of prayer and I thank each and everyone of you who have sent and said prayers for me they mean the world to me. I'm just really going to stop and sit and wait for all the walls to tumble as I feel I have done all I can..So I sit here and read all the back and forth comments that is going on and not pointing fingers at anyone but we all are responsible for our own lives and how we live them and how we live them is how we chose for them to turn out in one way or the other.. we all have to take blame for all the downfalls in our own lives and I am the first to stand up and say my life is the way it is as because I chose it and this is just the way it came out .. even when things wasnt done on purpose or by mistake or just done.. its my life and Im the one running it and living it so Please can we all just get along and take responsibility for what we do, say, and how we choose to live. I love everyone and the words of wisdom and the help and prayers that were offered to me.. but The back and forth really needs to just stop and lets all just take responsibility for our own downfalls, yes economy plays a part in a lot of the money downfalls but we all have to hold our own selfs accountable for what we do , how we do it and how we say it and how we live it.. So now if anyone wants to curse me or call me names or tell me I'm this and that please go for it.if it makes you feel better. as I am responsible for my life and my words.. All I ask is for the prayers and words of wisdom and help continues for me and my family and I shall do the same for all of you.. May God Bless you all!!! Have a Blessed day!!!!

 in response to cashay...   Cathay: I'm so sorry you feel that way about my statement and I didn't intend any malice towards you. I just don't undersand how a bright intelligent woman such as yourself can just stay in the sme house for 13 years with a man that treats you so badly; Maybe if you could explain to me how it makes you feel better to come here to aidpage and tell us over and over how this tyrant treats you. I do't know if your aware of this or not but you repeat yourself over and over saying the same things. As far as Schmidty goes, he happens to be one of the finest aidmates we have among us and I think he is just as confused as I am why you stay with your husband and how can you teach others something that obviously hasn't worked for you. Just help us understand why you have to repeat over and over the horrible things your husband does to you and then turn around and attack verbally those of us that are trying to understand just what your mental capacity is.
