I loved my Jetta (and it was about as slow as a car can get while still moving) but they are really not mind-blowingly amazing cars. You can't fix FWD and crappy weight distribution with all the power and handling upgrades out there.
Tim's is.

AWD and a giant turbo.

I was in a really dark place these past few days. Last night, I did something really stupid, and it scared me and I was afraid I'd do it again, so after a couple days of avoiding everyone, I finally broke down and called my SO and told him what happened. He came and got me and took me to his house, and we spent a long night talking about things and everything that I've been needing to do for a long time.

I feel so much better today. He does so much for me, I love him so so so much. I hope I don't go back. I don't think I will, at least not that bad. We talked about seeing a therapist, but I just don't know if I need one. Nothing causes my depression, it just pop up randomly, with absolutely no trigger.

But I'm finally happy again, so good news, yay.

When I got home from my game last night I found that my children and their friends (practically also my kids seeing as I feed and house them often enough) had cleaned, straightened and organized my living room.

Of course, I should add this to the venting thread because upon arriving home, I was instructed that I placed my things in the wrong place

You should do whatever you're comfortable with, but I found having a counselor (therapist) helped me immensely. Even if it's just random things, having someone you can just talk to can help. Someone who is fairly unbiased about your life and who can relate (or make you feel like they can) to your problems. Especially if you don't have a lot of (close) friends. If you're not okay with that, maybe talking to someone who doesn't really know you might help? A pen pal of sorts? Or if you can't find a therapist that isn't expensive. Mine was luckily free (or $5 a session) since she worked with teenagers. And medication is not always a bad thing. I avoid taking it because I also dislike it. It makes me feel weak or totally messed up. But if it helps you..... (Plus you don't have to take it FOREVER. Sometimes taking it for a month or two can really make a difference.)

Glad you're doing better now, though.



My good news is: I got some GF Victor's in (took the plunge and bought from their online store) and Gwen is loving in. I'm hoping she'll continue loving it. Last time I didn't get the GF, I got some nasty smelling fish type and I don't think she did so well on it. Not to mention she took her time eating it. She eats the GF within a few minutes of me putting it out.
