I'm losing fucking everything, including my my 12 yo cat, who I've had since it was 2 months, and my small apartment. Of course, despite my supporting motherfucking charities for years, those same places will not help me. Same with people I know. Every single person I know can just go fuck themselves.

I work at a major retail warehouse/discount chain that sells everything from housewares to food. During the week, we usually have several stations giving out free samples of foods.
I always see a lot of senior citizens make an outing of coming in to eat all our free samples, then leave. Imagine my surprise when a former co-worker from my old job, came in with her three year old and did the same thing!
They were hungry, too. I decided to use my assistant mgr. status to do something. I said hello to them, she was obviously embarrassed to run into me.
I asked her if she and her son would like to try our food court. I told her I was arguing with management about the hot dogs. They wanted to change brands and I wanted to keep the same brand. (It was a lie.)
I asked her if they would like to "help me out." Then I bought them lunch. I told them we had "a few extras" and gave them a couple more to go. She never came back again, and I heard that she moved back home to another state to stay with her parents.

He had all these friends and "contacts" but now they don't even respond to phone calls or e-mails. It is amazing since he helped so many of them out when they were in need. And some of them were really needy for a while.
The thing is, if these people were needy people who you had to help, then they aren't the kind to help you anyway. They were assholes then and are still and you're just noticing.
They also sound like very immature user types. Punch and delete them, not youself. And find a better class of "friends."
Actually, this is a great opportunity to really find out what you want, who you are, and what you really need in life. And go for it. Please yourself. You don't have to live up to anyone's expectations.

R6, I'm so sorry. What sort of worker training programs are available in your city? Look into retraining through your unemployment office. Call churches to ask if they have food banks or beds for people like you. In my town, there's a network of churches who help people who are newly homeless, trying to get on their feet again. They let them sleep on cots in the church but they have to be out first thing every morning. They'll spend two weeks at one church and then rotate to another. Also, several churches run food and clothing banks. Check out the Catholic and Lutheran churches especially.
Whatever you do, don't give up. Do you have any money coming in? If you do, try looking for someone renting out a room.
Also, contact your local newspapers and tv stations and tell them your plight. Pitch them a story about you and how you're spiraling into homelessness. Also contact your political representatives and ask for help.
Check out this website; it offers a wealth of information and provides some emotional support. Each state has its own message board.

During my senior year in high school in a backwater town, I had an affair with my English teacher. I was so hormonally infatuated with him I'm embarrassed to even think about how aggressively I came on to him. Yet I did, and he was bisexual enough (he was single, but dated women) to let me suck him off and do some frottage almost every weekend.
He was up front about just having fun and that we weren't dating. He was clear that after I left for college the following summer that would be it. That was fine with me, but man, did I ever cry my eyes out when summer came and he left on vacation and I knew I'd be leaving for school before he got back. Teenage crushes are intense.
Oh, no one ever found out about us, but the following year there was speculation that he was having an affair with one of his female students, but it was never proven and he was never prosecuted. But he did quite teaching at my old school after that and moved away.

All white people are racist in that we are born into a set of advantages due to our race -- easier access to credit, jobs, education, good neighborhoods, etc.
Inevitably we assume that we are better than other races because we do better (on average).
It does not matter how we feel towards another race. It is how we act that matters. It's just like a shop keeper who has to serve all races. No one cares what he feels like inside, it is how he acts that counts.
Try to make your public attitude as racially neutral as possible. Consider how you are behaving towards others (but don't dwell on it) and make adjustments.
Eventually your private opinions will change. Fake it until you make it is the cliche.

r28, I know you think how you feel is a secret, bunt it really isn't. It comes off you in waves that the blacks in your life, even the so-called "friends" can feel. Black folks can always spot a racist white person because there are signals you send off and things you say that you're not even aware of.
And as for me while we're doing race secrets I can say that I really, really have a hard time trusting white people for anything deeper than the most superficial relationships. You never truly know where you stand. They can smile in your face but won't stick up for you when you're not in the room because their comfort level is always the most important. And there are so few white people with more than one or two black friends that you always have to be the only black person at the party, which is just too weird.
I believe in equality in work and everything else, but the older I get I wonder if we should all be true to ourselves and just stick to our own socially.

To be fair, I do not begrudge the hundreds of thousands I pay in tax which supports the needy of my country, and will support me should I ever need it. That is not charity, that is a functional society.
I speak only of charities which beg for donations. For instance, I refused to give a cent to America's Katrina victims. Why should anyone gift money to the richest nation on Earth to mop up after their own government fucked them in the ass? Of course, millions of people DID give to the Katrina victims so I assume that, between the extremely wealthy American government and millions of dollars worth of charity from much poorer nations, everything in New Orleans is completely fixed now and everything is fine...

I think I have the same kind of cancer that killed my father & uncle. Father died when he was 55, I'm almost 50. I've been at a temp service with no health insurance for the last year. But here's the kicker. The company I'm temping at is the same company that laid me off last summer when I had health insurance. No surviving family members and no one to confide in except my lover that lives in the UK. I can't bring myself to tell him because he'll worry himself to death and he has to take care of his father that has Alzheimers. I"m trying to hold it together and get the house sold so I can move over there. It's such a mess.

About 8 years ago, I was working at a European contemporary furniture store on the waterfront. I was alone one morning when this beautiful young guy, early 20's comes in, proceeds to sit opposite my desk and just starts chatting away about school, life, friends, all the while madly flirting with me. I was in my late 30's and wondered what the hell this guy was up to. I was a wreck, he was just too gorgeous. ...after about 20 minutes I blurted out "you're driving me crazy" ...he laughed, I said I really wanted to kiss him. I pulled him behind a closed door and we kissed, I had his pants down, wanked him a bit, more kissing, then I buttoned him up and we were back out in the store. ...he stayed around a while as I did work. I know it sounds pretty lame, but I'm conservative, with a partner of 28 years and this remains a sweet memory for me. I guess it was a daddy thing fo him.

I met a very dear friend of mine a week ago to wish him a Merry Christmas. He broke down in tears telling me that he was about to be evicted. He has been unemployed for more than 7 months now and is not very good with money. He has tried to start his own business in the interim, but it has been a dismal failure. At this point, he has not a cent to his name and no job prospects on the horizon. Against my better judgment, I leant him $2,000 to keep a roof over his head and to be able to eat. I don't know if I'll ever get that money back, but the thought of a friend getting evicted during Christmas and being essentially homeless made me very, very sad.

I live in Toronto, where a few years ago the stores all started charging 5 cents per plastic shopping bag. The stores keep the money it does nothing to help the planet, but they still call it an "environmental fee". So now everytime I go grocery shopping I steal something, usually something small like lip balm or gourmet cheese, something I can easily hide in a pocket or even in the bottom of the re-usable shopping bags we all have to carry now.
It's not stealing in my mind it's a silent protest against an obvious cash grab by the stores.

To the people who are depressed, I know a couple posters here are advocates of Cognitive Behavorial Therapy, and it seems similar to mentoring/coaching style therapy. You are trained to detach the emotion from problems/people and events that make you emotional in a depressive/bad way. It's a retraining of the brain. It does work.
There are numerous books on the topic, and something I think is beneficial in exploring if you feel like you're down. Other posters here have talked about it much, look into it if you feel it will be beneficial to you.

I became a heroin addict at age 28 after some unspeakable traumas. It was the only way I could emotionally cope with what had happened to me.

It started with pain pills, then alcohol, then anything I could get my hands on. I%E2%80%99ve been either full-on addicted to H since then, using other drugs/alcohol, or chipping. Sadly, heroin is the only drug that makes me feel "right." I don't nod out or get high, I just feel normal, or as normal as I can feel. I am not your typical junkie. I have always been employed and able to support myself and my family and pay my bills and hide my addiction very, very well. In some ways, that is even worse because you fight to maintain that veil of normalcy and, as a result, never hit the proverbial bottom. Lately, I find myself deeply depressed and thinking about suicide daily. I just don't have the guts to follow through %E2%80%93 yet.

It is obvious that people who offer these sort of trite answers have not been through this particular form of hell.%0D %0D THe answer is to seek professional maintream psychiatric help. For a short term, meds may help to chemically balance the brain and regain a sense of reality and self-control. Then CBT plus other therapies can be applied. %0D %0D Depression is one mental disease that can be very successfully treated and handled. But so many people simply won't go to the doctor and ask for help. So they just keep spinning downward until all they see around them is black. In such a condition, I doubt thinking happy thoughts in response to suicide thoughts is the answer. Get fucking real!!@

My depression and anxiety especially are making me miserable. I was on Zoloft, and I guess it worked a bit but the anxiety side effect was awful. My insurance just lapsed, but I hope for it to be picked up by my union again soon. It's so weird in that it just happens, even though everything in my very modest life is fine. Maybe it's money related, as I live pretty much paycheck to paycheck, and have never been a big earner.

R218 It happened to me. The business I had been working in for two decades collapsed. There were massive layoffs. I lost everything. Every damn thing. I sold off my belongings to keep myself afloat, until I had nothing else to sell. I knew I my eviction was inevitable. I was months behind, and the landlord sooner or later was going to say to me "It's time to go."
I, too, "stocked up" on pills for that moment that I knew was coming. The moment came. My timing was off, and I woke up in a hospital two days later.
I finally confided in a good friend, leaving out the part about the pills and the hospital. He asked me to come stay with him until I could get myself going again.
I hope and pray that you have a friend like that. He saved my life. Please tell somebody what's happening. I wish I could do something for you.

I read back through a few pages to see if I posted this already, and I couldn't find it.
But if you've seen this before, I apologize.
I live in a house I inherited which has no running water and no heat. The roof leaks in several places.
I work two part-time jobs and barely have enough to feed myself, pay the electric bill, the phone bill, internet access, keep gas in my car to get to work, property taxes...
I have a relative who lives three houses away from me who lets me take showers and wash clothes at her house in exchange for lawn-mowing, doing her grocery shopping (she has vision problems and can't see well enough to drive), taking her to the doctor now and then, etc.
Sometimes I use her kitchen to cook hot food, too. And since she has limited vision, I cook for the two of us sometimes, too, sharing the expense of the food. I know she's grateful for my help, she couldn't make it without me and would probably have to go into some kind of institution or nursing home.
But I hate living this way.
My jobs require me to maintain a facade of middle-class respectability, and no one I no has any idea whatsoever that I live this way.
I never invite anyone to my house and on the two or three occasions in the past 10 years someone has come by unannounced and without an invitation, I told them I was about to leave and couldn't have company. And of course they could tell I live in an old run-down place and didn't want company.
I'm afraid I'll never be able to leave this horrible place, and that if my friend/cousin has to go into a care facility, I'll be in real trouble.

As a clerical worker, my boss lent me to the Human Resources office for a week as a warm body to fill the office while Human Resource employees were attemding a week long team building seminar. It was dull and boring to be just a placesetter and I was resenting my boss for taking me away from my full inbox so I went to the filing cabinets and opened all the personnel files of the people I knew and looked through their file, read their performamce reviews and looked at how much they were making. Especially my boss. I feel guilty because this is totally not in my character. But I guess it is in my character because I did it.

R233, if he's the kindest human being then he will love you regardless of your degree. I didn't finish my Bachelor's either, but my husband thought I did. When I started making arrangements to go back to school, he saw the envelopes from colleges coming in and I finally told him. He said it didn't matter to him at all, that he loved me and not a piece of paper.
|by Anonymous||reply 253||08/26/2012|
R253, the crux of the issue is NOT that you did not have the 'piece of paper'.
The issue is one of deceiving, lying, possibly not being able to apply for certain jobs without having finished a bachelors degree.
Not finishing college represents some things about a person - in that, why did you not finish? What are your aspirations, goals, etc without a bachelors degree? Why did you feel the need to cover this up? Are you on the same or similar intellectual level as your boyfriend?
