from kimbaleigh :
Hey miss, see you've not been here for a while either. But I see in your last post you mention myspace, if your on them come find me at /white_lileigh, after the mysace.com obviously! xx
from herdarlinsin :
Pidge. How are you???
from kopa :
Thank you so much for wishing me a happy new year, that made me very, well, happy! I wish you all the best for the year 2007!
from liquid-mojo :
Happy New Year to you too. :) Oh, I have a myspace profile BTW, here it is: http://www.myspace.com/liquid_mojo
from herdarlinsin :
Happy New Years to you and your family too. Hope all is well with you, and yours. May your new year bring lots of happiness and joy for you.
from sunnflower :
Well, I've been wondering how you are. I'm so glad you posted again. If you have another blog please share the info so I can keep up with you! You can also visit me directly at www.suburbanisland.us instead of going through my diaryland site.
from cookiegalore :
*waves* Hey - have missed you mighty me, it's so good to hear you're still around! Seems like you have had an eventful year! I'm sorry to hear about all the sadness, shocked to hear about your half sisters (have you thought of looking for them?) and about your back! I hope things improve for you! I'd love to read about you wherever you are now! I'm on LJ (beckstarockstar) and on myspace (same username) let me know about yourself! Much love and all the best for the coming months - I really hope things improve! Love and Hugs, Becky x
from kopa :
hey! good to know you're (at least somewhat) alright. I'd love to read your blog, I don't know if you still have a password for my diary or my e-mail? It's chlos@yahoo.com just in case.
from donut-one :
HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! OH MY GOODNESS! It's been a while. How are you? Really truley though, I'm not asking just to have you say "Oh I'm fine". I'm so sorry about your Aunt. That's hard. I lost an a great uncle not too long ago out of the blue. It's not easy. I'm glad you're back. :) I hope you have a lovely thanksgiving.
from forty-plus :
I am so sorry to hear about your uncle's cancer and especially your aunt's passing. I would love to catch up with you and your writing. And I have a myspace account also. I hope to hear from you soon.
from shortst101 :
I can't believe that you actually posted something here. I have been wondering and worrying about what has happened to you. Sorry to hear about the hardships and sadness you have been through the last few months. I have myspace and would love to read your new blog. You have been missed. Hugssss to you. Sandy
from princesse69 :
I remember you. I have to confess I haven't read you for so long though. I'm back writing more regularly on Diaryland and catching up on all my diaries. I was saddened to read that you have had such a tough time. I'm sorry about your Aunt passing and all your recent health problems. I hope you update more and I can catch up with you some more. Hope you're feeling better now. Take care xxx &hearts Sharon
from luna-obscura :
Wow, I nearly fell off my chair with shock when your name lit up on my buddy list! It's good to catch up; sorry you've had such a challenging few months though. I would like to know where you're writing now if that's okay? If you don't already have my DLand password I can give it to you if you're interested. Oh and my MySpace name is "notreallyhappening". xx
from herdarlinsin :
I had a myspace account, but within the last 30 minutes someone hacked into it and deleted it. Bleh. I will try to work on another one ok?
from herdarlinsin :
I'm worried about you - it's been 6 months since your last update. I'd like to know how you are Jo-jo.
from kimbaleigh :
Hoping you're ok! Im never here anymore but if you ever want to get in touch, merandomnah at hotmail . com minus spaces. xx
from shortst101 :
Haven't heard from you in a very long time. Wondering and worrying about you. Are you okay?
from herdarlinsin :
You read my diary, regularly, yet I have no idea how YOU are. What's up with that? Have you decided to be my stalker for a while?
from surrenderme :
Hey Jo :) I haven't heard from you for soem time now. One day out of theblue I recieve an e-mail from you (I was so excited) Of course you were a little on the loopy side, but I didn't mind. It's felt like ions has passed between us, I haven't spoken to you in so long. Do you still peek at my journal? And hows your trip? When do you go back home? I'd really like to talk to you love. You can always send me an e-mail, of course. Try secretxwhispers69@hotmail.com (I use that more often than Yahoo) I miss you a lot Jo-Jo. Please let me know how you are, okay?
from luna-obscura :
I'm so sorry about your friend. And I'm also sorry that nobody thought to let you know. Sending much love your way.
from mspsyched1 :
You dont know how excited I got when I saw my buddy list and you had updated. I was seriously going to hunt you down to make sure you were okay. I'm glad that you are. I'm so very sorry to hear about your friend. And the way that you heard about it. He's a friend nonethless, so you should've been told sooner. All you can do now is be there for who you can as we'll be here for you. (BIG HUGS)
from shortst101 :
Jo, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I'm also sorry you had to find out the way that you did. Hugssssssssssss for you. You are missed and I hope that you are finding some happiness and peace in your life. I think of you often. Thanks for the update even though it wasn't under good circumstances. Hang in there. Hugsssssssss Sandy
from h-o-l-l-y :
Jo, I'm so, so sorry about the loss your friend, & I can't imagine how awful it must have been 2 discover the terrible news in the way u did. U didn't deserve that - *no-one* does. Your other friends were incredibly thoughtless (2 put it mildly) 2 "forget" 2 let u know what had happened, & I understand how that must add greatly 2 the pain of losing someone u were close to (as we've both said b4, the length of time inbetween when u were last in contact with someone, *doesn't* relate 2 how close u are 2 them, or how often u think of them. U might not be in contact for weeks, months, years even, but that doesn't necessarily mean u stop caring/being friends). I'm sure the family will appreciate your card & flowers, & will understand that you'd be at the funeral if there was any way possible; u just *can't*. If you'd like someone 2 "talk" 2, please do mail me anytime. I'm always here 4 u & ready 2 listen if u need a friend *hugs*......On a different note, I think I must have finally *totally* flipped (no comments pls!), because I've obviously just been 2 your diary, only 2 find a whole load of entries for 2006 that I'm *sure* weren't there a couple of days ago when I wrote my last note 2 u! I could have *sworn* the last entry I remember seeing was dated as Nov '05, & was entitled "Mindfulness". Am I going *completely* bonkers (again, no comment!), or is there some other explanation?! Because I've checked your diary many times over the last few months, but it appeared as if you'd stopped updating 4 some reason (hence my last note). Pls tell me I wasn't imagining it!.....Well, take care, hang in there, & don't be afraid 2 take me up on my "offer" of being a shoulder 4 u, if you're in need of some support. Ok? Once again, I'm so sorry about your friend. Lots of love & hugs, Jessie.x
from h-o-l-l-y :
Hey Stranger! I've been thinking about u lots lately, wondering how u are & if you're ok, so I thought I'd drop by 2 let u know you're on my mind! How are u Jo? You've not updated 4 so long now - I hope it's not due 2 a deterioration in your health? Or do u just not feel comfortable sharing your thoughts/feelings with us anymore? (I remember u saying that with all the bitchiness round D'land, u no longer felt happy pouring your heart out in this diary like u did at the start. I *totally* understand that). With any luck it's actually cos you've gotten better & just don't have the time/inclination 2 update your diary these days! Whatever the reason, I wanted u 2 know that - despite appearances - I honestly haven't forgotten about u, & I genuinely do care a great deal 4 u. I hope u know that. I'm not even sure if you'll see this note, but maybe you'll come back here 1 day & this message will be a nice surprise 4 u :) I really hope you're doing ok atm Jo, & that the CBT has helped u - even "just" your anxiety probs, & not necessarily the M.E. Take care, & if u ever feel like getting in touch, u know where I am :) (but no pressure 2 reply *at all*). Loads of love, your friend, Jessie.x
from viks :
hiya, sorry i missed your birthday, ghope you had a great day. love viks x
from shortst101 :
Happy New Year Jo.....thanks for your note and sorry for taking so long to respond...I know i haven't been a good friend as of late, but know that I haven't forgotten about you and think of you often. I hope that 2006 will be a good year for all of us. Hugsssssss, Sandy
from ktdream :
Hey babe, sorry that you've been feeling kind of down. I hope this year brings many good times though and that you had fun bringing in the new year. Just came by to visit and tell you that my u/p is read/update.
from katy-bug :
Happy 2006, darling. I hope you're well. Write soon?
from dark-embrace :
Just wishing you a happy new year and a belated merry xmas. I'm sorry I haven't stopped by sooner but if you've been reading, it's been one hell of an end of year for me. Take care and look forward to reading more of you *hug*
from kimbaleigh :
Hey, hope you're doing ok and that you've had a lovely Christmas? Happy new year to you too! Thank you for the Christmas card. Take care Kim xx
from mspsyched1 :
It was so nice to get a note from you. I had been thinking of you alot recently. Especially when I go to my buddy list too see if you've made an entry. I do hope you're doing well and everything is good. I'd love to hear about what you've been up to. You are missed. (HUGS)
from sunnflower :
Hi Jo - Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful 2006. Hugs to you.
from amigamaster :
Jo...thanks for the Holiday greeting. It was very thoughtful and kind. Hope you had a nice Christmas. Happy New Year!...Patti
from cursed-angel :
merry christmas, too :) i hope you enjoy your holidays.. [hugz]
from liquid-mojo :
thank you, happy holidays to you as well. =)
from lickpoodyinc :
Merry Christmas to you and your family... I wish only the best for you this coming year! =)
from la-blue-eyez :
I hope you and have a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year!
from herdarlinsin :
Jo! Pidgeon! God, how I've missed you. I was sharing your Barbie and Ken christmas joke thing with my friends here not too long ago. How are you love? We haven't even spoke in 2 years. I never really thought time could get so far away between friends, but it does. Oh, it really does. I do miss you and I do think about you more often than I assume you think I do. Please, tell me how you're doing (more than what I read) and, how's your mother doing? *sigh* If only hugs could stretch the distances between us, I'd hope that you could feel all of the warmth inside of me holding you close to me. Please, be well, and be safe. Always. Your friend for life. (I've never left your side you know) Merry Christmas to you and all of yours as well. And I hope your New Year rings bright. You're the true meaning of "survivor" and simplcity all in its own meaning. You're adorable babe.
from princesse69 :
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! x
from kimbaleigh :
Hey miss, good to have you back. How are things? Thank you for your most recent entry. Makes lots of sense and I hope you're right. I think far too often I forget the here and now for things that could be or have been. Though as you say hopefully thats all part of life. I just hope one day it will all make sense to me. Apologies if I rambling and not making sense, Im awfully tired. Take lots of care. Kim xx
from gabriela83 :
Glad to have you back!
from mspsyched1 :
I AM SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK. I've missed you. I'm going to read over your archives to catch up. Glad you did that. Welcome back. You were really missed. (HUGS)
from sunnflower :
You haven't written here in awhile. I hope everything is going okay with you. Hugs.
from sunnflower :
I'm glad you had one of those sweet moments. Sometimes children help us see things clearly without even saying a thing.
from f-i-n :
that's very sweet
from forty-plus :
I treasure those moments, they are the important ones!
from donut-one :
I hope you have more moments like that ^_^.
from sunnflower :
I just popped in and was so glad to see the happy tone of your recent entry. That's the way it should be. I've been reading your diary for a long time and it was good to read about the positive motion in your life. Hugs, hon!
from mspsyched1 :
Okay first let me say I know I havent left you a note in a long time, but I do keep up with your entries. Which brings me to the second (and probbly last) thing. You sound so happy nowadays. You are truly blossoming into this new you...and I love it. I love to hear you happy. Its a lifelong metamorphosis. I am glad to read you smiling. (BIG PROUD HUGS)
from shortst101 :
HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
from donut-one :
Let me be the first to tell you how sorry I am you have TMJ (it seems you have something else that's worse...but still) I have it. I hate it. I don't know how I'm supposed to live without tootsie rolls! Anyway, This is all really random. I found you through themoodswing. I think your great. I like James Patterson and Moby too. Have you seen Moby in concert? You should if you get a chance. Well, I hope you feel better. Good luck with your off days. Smile no matter how unhappy you are, sometimes it makes you happy for no reason. Have a great day!- Dottie
from forty-plus :
Happy Anniversary! Every step of the journey is worthy of note. Without those yesterdays our todays wouldn't be what they are. Love ya, Yvonne
from shortst101 :
Hi there, thanks for your note. I have missed you and you have been in my thoughts while I was gone. Hang in there....Hugssssssssssss
from lilichild :
Wow, I've been out of the loop on reading your stuff for a while but I'm glad to hear you're doing a lot better. Happy Anniversary (well belated). I would say keep the old stuff, I've kept all of mine and it's good to go back and look and remind yourself of how far you've come every so often.
from lickpoodyinc :
I don't think you should "throw away" those old memories, even as bad as some of them are, they are still useful to look back upon, especially when you want to see "how far you've come" from then. Know what I mean? Keep your head up! =)
from cookiegalore :
Things will always get better. Maybe if you feel you are a different person you need a new diary? I hope you are ok! xxx
from somstar :
Ew. Sorry all these bad things are happening to you, especially when you're already stressed out!
from themoodswing :
Although a new diagnosis isn't good, you should still win some kind of award for having illnesses with weird names. I think that deserves some kind of prize ;) Can this new 'problem' be treated in some way, or at least managed? I'm glad you look at your situation from a philosophical angle; it's the absolute best way. You're tough and I know you can get through anything life throws at you *snuggle*
from herdarlinsin :
Youre still an amazing person. Hang in there hon.
from cursed-angel :
wow.. you're really good at expressing your emotions beautifully... that entry made me want to see photos of your dad as well. [hugz]
from cursed-angel :
i'm really glad that you are safe... i do hope that your family and friends are safe too.. i didn't see that on the news (i live in asia) but i hope the suspects get caught soon and get punished accordingly.. these things are really saddening.. even in my own country, there's so much chaos...
from mspsyched1 :
I cant even begin to tell you how much this saddens me. I am extremely glad that you are safe and unharmed. (BIG HUGE ENORMOUS HUGS)
from themoodswing :
I share your sentiments exactly - those responsible should rot in hell. I sat up most of last night watching the BBC stuff (they have an affilliate in Australia) and was mesmerised. We knew it would probably happen but of course never wanted it to. Want to know the saddest thing? Both my brother and mum were more annoyed that the cricket coverage was cancelled for constant news. The got an earful from me, believe me. Hope everyone you know is safe *cuddle*
from h-o-l-l-y :
I totally understand your hatred/disbelief/pain, etc. I just posted this message in Elle's ("ill_elle") LiveJournal & thought u might be interested too...... "My brother works in London, & when we still hadn't heard from him by 12.30pm, we were frantic with worry. Everything goes through your head & there's this weird kind of pain/panic/worry that's unlike anything you've ever felt before. We were lucky: my brother was ok - he'd gone into work earlier than usual & had missed the bombs. He then couldn't get through to call us, cos the switchboards were jammed. I can't even begin to explain the relief we felt & we'll never view these kind of atrocities in the same way again - we'll always be thinking "we know abit about how the friends/family of the missing people feel". And tonight, I can't help but think about the poor people that weren't as lucky as us. All-in-all, we had four members of our family in London yesterday (some just around the corner from the blasts), & amazingly, all of them were fine. Trapped in London, but fine. I'm not religious, but as u said, something was obviously looking over us to protect our loved ones during this horrific time. I just wish with all my heart that everyone could have been saved. Everyone deserved to live; no-one deserved to die or be terribly injured. And I can't imagine the pain that hundreds of people are going through right now. Evil, evil world. Sorry for going on so much & for being so serious/depressing. Just needed to get it all out I guess."..... Stay safe Jo. Sending lots of love & gentlest hugs, Jessie.x
from lickpoodyinc :
It pains me to know that these terrorist threats/actions are becoming more a part of daily life in the 21st century. I hope that these mother effers get caught soon so that justice can be served for all the victims. Keep your head up-- one day this will all end.
from forty-plus :
Thinking of you, your mom and friends in the aftermath of these horrible bombings. Praying all are safe.
from forty-plus :
{{Hugs}} Therapy is hard, but it is so worth it. You are so worth it! Love, Yvonne
from sunnflower :
Hi hon! The camera is lovely. I use my cell phone all the time for photos to add to my diary. Now you need a buzznet account too!
from h-o-l-l-y :
Hey Jo :) Do u not have a guestbook anymore, or am I being even more dense than usual, & missed it?! I'm just stopping by to say hi really. I hope all the Dr appointments went awap & you're not suffering *too* much now. I'm thinking of u. Oh, & please remember, as I said before, there's absolutely *no* rush to help me with my diary, ok? This note definitely is NOT a "gentle reminder" - I just wanted to let u know you're on my mind! Take care & rest up. Lotsa love & soft hugs, Jessie.x
from forty-plus :
Nice new phone! Thanks for the nice note also.
from killandra :
hey, I thought you'd want to read this...http://news.scotsman.com/scitech.cfm?id=550752005 It's awesome news for people like us.
from rose2white :
You go for it, I hope you can get one-to-one CBT, I can't even get group sessions here as no one in my area specialises in CBT of any kind. I hope it all works out well for you, your in my thoughts. Hugs Mandy -x-
from shortst101 :
hugssssssssssssssss, thinking of you
from themoodswing :
I'm so glad you got the DLA. You deserve to have something go your way *cuddle* I will keep my fingers crossed that your friends will overturn the decisions against them and get the support they need :)
from cursed-angel :
i really dont understand how your friends didn't get it. maybe you were really lucky with the doctor that went there and talked to you. :) i hope their appeal gets approved and i'm glad that you dont have to go through that.. [hugs]
from forty-plus :
While I am sad for your two friends, you getting approved is truly an answer to one of my prayers (and your's I'm sure). I'm so happy for you and your mom. {{Hugs}} Yvonne
from forty-plus :
I am not sure if you celebrate it today, but would you wish your mum a Happy Mother's Day from me? Hugs to you!
from dark-embrace :
I find it difficult to hide my emotions through my facial expression unless I concentrate really hard not to have a reaction either way. But I have a bad case of foot in the mouth syndrome and it tends to sell me out in the end anyway. Oh well.
from forty-plus :
Besides your eyes, your heart is the most beautiful thing about you.
from forty-plus :
A compassionate physician, isn't that such a nice surprise? I understand the slow recovery time. Take good care of yourself, Y.
from rose2white :
I'm glad all went well with the DWP doctor, I do hope you don't need to appeal, I'm still waiting for mine and it's a long horrible wait. Hugs, Mandy x.
from sunnflower :
I'm glad the physical went so well and that you liked the doctor. I like your cool template by the way.
from themoodswing :
I'm glad your session went well. I know just how it feels to be talking and not have the doctor listen to you. It's like they ask question to look like they're doing their job, but they dont listen because they already "know" the answer. Pffft. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all works out in your favour :) *cuddle*
from cookiegalore :
Good Luck for tomorrow, I hope all goes well and that you get the news you hope for. DLA are tricky but I'm sending good vibes full of luck! xxx
from themoodswing :
God, all that sounds like the bullshit the welfare system here puts me through. They "don't reveive" your forms, and when they do they have other excuses. I've been sent to one of their "doctors" too and he pretty much said there was nothing wrong with me. It is ridiculous. There are people out there defrauding the system and the people who really need the assistance are treated like shit and dont get what they're entitled to. I hope everything goes well for you tomorrow, but if they try to tell you there's nothing wrong with you, FIGHT THEM. They're a bunch of miserable bastards who need a good arse kicking. You may be sick but you can still kick some arses, and I'll be cheering you on from Australia :) *cuddle*
from a-stronaut :
Good luck with the DWP doctor. I hope it goes well for you. I had one come to visit me last week for my benefit assessment [finally!] He seemed really nice and quite understanding but it is worrying that he might write a report that means I won't get any benefits. Anyway, I'll be thinking of you, good luck.
from cornflake1 :
Good luck hun xx
from cornflake1 :
Thanks so much for your kind comment about Chrissie - I really appreciate it. I'm feeling better about it now, I think it was the initial shock of seeing the change in her that got to me so much. The comments in my diary helped a lot, so thank you. :) I hope that the CBT isn't too much of an ordeal for you, I will keep you in my thoughts. Take care ((((hugs))))
from liquid-mojo :
Thank you sweetie, I haven't forgotten you either. :)
from dark-embrace :
Oh i just love the new layout. Very nice.
from shortst101 :
Jo, Thank you for your last two notes, the one saying that you would be here to hold my hand and this last one with your concern. I appreciate it more than you know. I've just been trying to deal with everything lately and haven't felt like updating or anything. I'm lucky i'm dragging myself out of bed every morning these days. I go back to the doctor next week. Son and mother in law are doing better. How are you??? Hugssss, thank you again.

from shortst101 :
Happy Birthday to your Mum and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
from lessthanjon :
Hello, hows it goin? hope your good glad to hear mark's ok so far, it's a joke about the hospitals though, whatever happened to the welfare state??? Anyways just saying hi an all, by the way do you know who wrote that "god gave rock an roll to you" song off bill and ted? A mate gave me a compilation disk (he swears he's not in love with me though) an it's on it an I cant remember who wrote it and it's driving me crazy. Enough rambling Have fun and thanks in advance Jon :) xxx
from wacewace :
Hey Jo! Glad to hear Mark's doing well. It's a shame that hospitals run out of funding, especially children's hospitals. But it's still good that there was a place he could be transferred to. My heart does go out to that little boy and his family, though. I hope for the best.
from herdarlinsin :
Hey Pidge. *smiles* I read your update about Mark, glad he's going well. How are you? I never hear from you anymore. It's been like a year I think. I still think about you. I wanted you to know that. Leave me a note sometime ok? All my love, Always Chrissy
from bitterwineuk :
glad to hear he's off the ventilator. that's a very good sign. have been thinking of him. hope to soon hear about him being a boisterous little toddler as he should be. becca
from shortst101 :
I'm continuing to keep your Godson in my prayers. Hugs

from katie-kinz :
remember me? it's prettykay
from shortst101 :
Hi there Jo, just wanted you to know I have been thinking about you.....miss talking to you.
from cursed-angel :
wow.. i wish i could say the same thing to my mom...
from bitterwineuk :
awwww, bless him, poor little mite. i wish he has a quick recovery and hopefully he will as kids seem to fight back and recuperate quicker than adults with some things. that's one thing i learnt at gosh. they say it could be an immune build up that helps them get better faster. there's nothing more scary in the world than seeing your baby all wired up to breathing apparatus but hopefully for mark this will be the start of a new better life for him. wishing everyone the best of luck. becca
from lessthanjon :
Hey Jo, read up on your diary hope you dont mind (guess not or it wouldnt be on the internet) glad to see your still dead nice kind as always and glad to see your little friend mark is alright. Take care. Jon xxx
from lessthanjon :
Hey Jo, thanks for your merry christmas and happy new year message, sorry to be so rude to only reply now, been away for awhile but hope your doing good got some catching up to do on diarys. hope you having a good year. :) XXX
from rose2white :
You have the most beautiful way with words, and as a mum, I can say that your entry was very touching. Your Mum is just as lucky to have you as a daughter, as for her to be your Mum. I only hope and pray that I am as good at being a Mum as yours has and continues to be. Hugs & love to you both on this special days, and hugs for Mark & his family too (I hope things are going well for him) do keep us up dated. Mandy -x-
from prohibited :
Happy Mothers day for you for and your mum. I hope little Mark is doing well. I read your note to bitterwineuk about his breathing as I too wasn't sure why he had the operation. My thoughts are with him and his family. xx
from forty-plus :
Happy Mother's Day to your very special mum! (And a few hugs for you too!)
from cornflake1 :
Mark and his family are in my thoughts - I hope he continues to get better and better. (And I hope you do too, sorry you're feeling so yuck) xx
from bitterwineuk :
Best wishes to little Mark and all his family. Though I don't know why he needed the operation but bless him for his bravery. I'm a mum who's been there and seen their baby fight for life. That was baout this time last year. So I sincerely wish his family all the very best and my thoughts are with you all. Becca
from forty-plus :
Heal well and I will continue to pray for Mark's family. Poor little nugget.
from kimbaleigh :
I'll be thinking of him, his family and you tonight. *hugs* kim xx
from forty-plus :
Mark is in my prayers, as you are. Rest well.
from sunnflower :
Just stopping by to say hi and send a hug your way.
from sunnflower :
Our society would rather somebody be in agony day and night then give them pain medication. It's shocking. Hugs to you. :)

I agree with you, if someone wants to kill themselves they'll do it regardless, it's just the prescription drugs are more potent and will do the job quicker. I recently learned that 8 paracetamol tablets in one go is enough to end your life, although it is a slow painful death. It's not fair on people like you who use the medication legitimately. Try not to let it bother you too much love; I'm sure there's something equally good you can use instead :)

Hang in there Lovey!

All the best for your appointment in the morning, I'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best. Hugsssssssss always Mandy

I am glad you are feeling a little better. Tomorrow's appointment will be okay ... you have therapy experience and learned a lot from Kate. Don't be nervous, every person can help you to grow. Good luck my Lovey!
from forty-plus :
As I read your Shy Away I kept thinking your writing keeps getting better and better. And it was great to begin with!
from cookiegalore :
Evilness on the internet is why I have left most places. Even places that you don't think would be like that (a certain m.e. charity I found but I don't know if it's got better, as I left) but you wonder if it's people saying to themselves, 'Don't know these people, never gonna see them so don't care if I hurt them' which is pathetic and lame! Hope you're well x
from bohemianlife :
Thanks so much for the note and the buddy add...you have a really great diary as well. And your poetry is very good too..."Sleeping With Memories" - really great. Hope you won't mind a buddy add in return!

you weren't late at all leaving a note. no worries! Thank you so much for you kind thoughts!
from shortst101 :
Judgement Day....very well said Jo,thanks for saying it.
from dark-embrace :
Actually I think some rich pet owners are already whitening their pets teeth. Crazy huh.
from cookiegalore :
Hi Jo. Thanks you for your card, it was lovely to hear from you. I hope you are well at the moment, I am sorry to hear about your aunt passing, my thoughts are with you and your family at the moment. I dislike what we are being turned into, some sort of body perfect women without flaws! Next they'll be calling us the stepford wives! Be what you want to be, it'll make you happier! Take care xxx
from rose2white :
I hate to tell you this; but it is possible to have your pets teeth made whiter, I'm not sure where but you can get cosmetic surgery done on your pet as well. I know there are some sad people around with too much money!!!!!
from forty-plus :
"whitening pets' teeth?" :D
from kimbaleigh :
Dearest note bitch, Its good to read a more light hearted entry after what you've been through and recent events. Not that Im not taking the note collecting idea seriously, sounds extremely interesting and well just plain nosey really! (which is great) We should get a group going, Note Bitches, we could get t-shirts printed up with slogans on 'Give me the note or the pen gets it!' Hmm... maybe not. Still good idea! Take care hun xxx
from shortst101 :
I'm a note writer too. I have little yellow stickies all over my desk and computer!

from fan4 :
Thanks for the hug.
from prohibited :
I'm sorry about you losing everything on your computer. I know it's a big pain in the butt, I no longer keep anything important on mine now. As for the friend thing, I know they are the ones missing out, but as well as that I'm the one missing out on any social interactions I may have had with them. It's just one big friendless circle, but to be honest I'm much happier and more confident without those friends holding me back. I'd just like some new friends now, to gossip and joke around with as us girls do. :)
from dark-embrace :
I am so afraid of my computer dying on me again that I don't keep anything good on it so if it dies, I can just reinstall and start again. Though it is a bummer when it happens. Hope the rest of your year is less irratating.
from rose2white :
Sorry to hear about your large bang, I hope that whatever you may have lost is not of any value and can be replaced with ease. Take great care hun. Hugs Mandy

That's awful about your computer! I just went through computer issues myself! I wasn't so lucky though, I had to go out and buy a new one and totally lost EVERYTHING! I have learned my lesson now about making backups. :(

Dear Jo, thank you for your wishes. I'd also like to wish you the very best of the best in the new year. love,joanna
from herdarlinsin :
Dearest Jo, I don't read your diary like I should. I'm missing out on so much. I closed myself off to everyone while I was trying hard not to concentrate on the drama in my life, trying to change, letting myself be changed, and losing myself in-between it all. I apologize dearly for not comforting you and being there we needed. I guess I became selfish inside and didn't want to feel anymore, through the emptiness and despair inside of me. I allowed myself to hide behind things and let the fear take over, and became my own worst enemy. I've thought about you, even wanted to send you emails, but never prevailed. I wish I would have. I wish I didn't regret so much as well. Maybe I shouldn't have hid myself so far deep inside and actually allowed myself to open up for once and tell you how I was. I just didn't want you to worry about me so much, and have added extra stress on your heart. mFalling in love and learning how to tae risks, realizing it was really worth it, even though those feelings weren't the same in the end. I've learned a lot in the past year about love and what it takes to give your all.
from dark-embrace :
Happy belated new year to you to though I was sad to read about your aunte. Haven't been on for a while and am just catching up with what is going on with all my fav reads. Again, sorry. Stay strong *hug*

The world is a much easier place to live in when someone else understands you. *big hug* I'm feeling a little better today, although yesterday wasnt good (I'll write an entry about it soon).

The idea of that pill frightens me.
from forty-plus :
You are an inspiration! And I adore you.
from me-me-meee :
I agree. Our lives are shaped by our experiences, good and bad. Imagine how snooty and immature we would be without those life experiences to change us as we go. I wouldn't take the pill because the lows may hurt but the learning experiences that they bring are SO worth it.
from grngrl75 :
I hope the doctors can tell you something and give you peace of mind. Hope you get to feeling better..that drink sounds yucky! Happy Belated Birthday!
from cursed-angel :
hey, i hope you're feeling better now.. how come the test results are taking so long? well, i hope they find out what's causing you pain and cure you asap.. god bless :)
from wacewace :
^_^ You can come if you want to. I know it's unlikely, seeing as how you live across the ocean, hehe.
from themoodswing :
I find the idea of aniseed flavouring ridiculous. "Here, drink this vile shit down. It's aniseed flavoured to make it a little more palatable." If someone tried to make me drink that stuff I'd ask them if they could flavour it with metho or something instead. Metho would be more pleasant than aniseed. ANYWAY, I hope you're feeling a bit better today. It's annoying having tests like this, but it's better to go through it for no reason than not be tested and have something sinister left unchecked. I'm sure everything will be fine. Are you not able to phone for your test results before Feb? That seems an awfully long time to wait. Try not to worry about it too much love. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for you. *big cuddle* xoxo
from forty-plus :
If something is seriously wrong, I am positive they will get a hold of you before Feb. 2005! I am glad you were able to make it through the tests. {{Hugs}}

from grngrl75 :
Thanks for reading hon:)
from themoodswing :
I totally relate to that memory loss thing, especially not being able to remember what day it is (even with the help of a calendar!). Two and a half years ago I got sick with what my doc could only call an auto-immune disease, because my bunch of symptoms didnt fit in with M.E/CFS or anything else. This year I've been feeling a lot better, however for the last few months I've had a constant sore throat but didnt bother getting it checked out. Eventually I did and have been through 2 courses of anti-biotics which havent worked. This past Saturday I was feeling particularly snotty and fluey, but went out shopping all day with a friend. (We are professional shoppers hehe) Sunday I felt awful, just like I did 2 and a half years ago, and spent most of the day sleeping. Yesterday was spent sleeping too, and I am just about to go back to bed today, having only been up for 3 hours. I think I can safely assume I've relapsed. Uuuuuugh :|

Today's entry (Nov. 6) is eloquent, so well written. How I wish we could be safe enough to forget. Take care My Girl. Love, Yvonne
from sunnflower :
I agree with Inkdragon - send it back. Or toss it. I'd definitely say a prayer for these people to be healed from their lose because as you note - their anger reflects their pain and they can't seem to get past it in a constructive way. Many hugs, Jo. Also, you might want to stop by LeslieIrene on Diaryland. She's going through a lot of health problems and I just wrote her a note about you and how amazingly you cope with your health issues. Hang in there. :)
from inkdragon :
Oh Jo, do not open that envelope. It's their poison, let them keep it. Mark it with "Return to sender," do not accept it. If they decide to release their unfounded anger at you and apologize some day, they will come to you in a different form. Send it right back to them, unopened. You have lost someone you loved, you need not be punished with their bitterness. Love you, Yvonne
from sunnflower :
Wow, watching 4 kids would wear me out! Get some rest tonight. Hugs. :)
from augustdreams :
I'm so sorry you're feeling so rough. I know exactly what you mean. It's so frustrating and miserable to wake up feeling even worse and more exhausted than you did when you laid down the night before. I wish I could come over to give you hot cocoa and a backrub and tell you silly Aph stories until you fall asleep. I hope the little ones are well-behaved. I'm sure they'll enjoy being with you, just don't let them wear you out too much! *hug*
from inkdragon :
Good luck with those little ones today. I hope they are wonderfully active while being completely well behaved and sweet and tire you out so you can start to catch up on your rest. I think of you often. xx

from h-o-l-l-y :
Hey Jo! Sorry I've been so bad at keeping in touch recently - I'm always reading your diary though. In your latest entry entitled "Fear Personified", you, as usual, wrote so eloquently about thoughts/feelings/emotions that so many of us go through in different ways, but have no idea how to express. I have no profound words or magical answers to take your fears away, because I, like alot of people, share most of your worries. However, I found this quote...... "Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until its faced". I know that that's easier said than done, but it is very true, isnt it? Anyway, I hope you're otherwise as well as poss. Jo, please remember that I'm always thinking of you, even if I've not been in touch for ages, ok? Take care & stay in touch. Love, Jessie.x
from sketchedpony :
It's been so long since you've updated. I know you are busy and I understand that. And in response to 'In the Still of the Night' I don't believe that it is you. Most things are caused by more than one person and trust is a two way street.

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I read your diary. I hope you've been doing alright. I know you have been. You're strong; you get through things. And I don't mind about late notes.

Hey Jo, Iíve just read ur latest diary entry & I hate 2 say "I know how u feel", cos it can be really annoying, but I *do* know!! The 1st endoscopy I had, I was 15yrs old. The doc didn't believe in ME & thought I was faking, so he wasn't v. nice 2 me. He injected the sedative, but it didn't work *at all* - I was wide awake. He didn't care & carried on. Like u, I kept vomiting, & I started struggling cos I was choking, & also cos it was going in my hair (yuk!). The nurses held me down too, but that made me freak out even more, cos I have a phobia about being held down by docs/nurses after what happened 2 me in the past. Again, like u, the "T.V." screen was *right* in front of me, so I had no choice but 2 watch as the surgeon took biopsy's from my stomach & oesophagus (again - yuk!). By the time it ended, I was shattered & hysterical. My parents - who were in the waiting room - later told me they had heard me choking & half-screaming but the nurse wouldn't let them in. The same kinda thing happened when I had a colonoscopy. But if u think the inside of ur *stomach* looks "ugly", u should see the inside of ur, erm, bowel!!! Nice! I think I must be the same as u, in that Iíve become used 2 certain drugs/chemicals, so my body doesnít respond in the normal way, so the sedative wasn't effective. Wow, sorry this is so long! The reason Iím saying all this, *isnít* 2 scare other diarylanders. I just thought u might want 2 swap horror stories sometime! There's nothing like having a moan with some1 that "knows", is there?! So feel free 2 mail me if u need a rant, ok? Anyway, I hope u get over it asap. Rest up & feel better soon. Lotsa love, Jessie.x
from shortst101 :
I'm so sorry for the horrible experience you had with the endoscopy. I would have freaked out too if I had woken up during mine. I didn't know they checked for gallstones via endoscopy. They didn't do that on me when I had my gall bladder taken out last year, just by ultrasound. I miss you, hope you know that I think of you often. HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
from inkdragon :
Oh Jo! I'm so sorry you woke up during the procedure. You cannot catch a break, can you? I wish there was more I could do than send you hugs. {{Tons of Hugs}}

Hey Jo, just a quick note 2 apologise 4 "neglecting" u lately! I *have* been reading ur diary tho, & u always - without fail - seem 2 write about the often un-spoken thoughts & feelings that so many of us experience, but dont have the guts 2 voice. Ur so eloquent Jo, & even difficult subjects are written about so beautifully. I wish *I* could write like u!! :) Anyways, I'm rambling, so I'll go. Take care & have faith in yourself - u *are* strong, even tho u may not feel that way. Love, Jessie.x

Every day before you go to bed write down 3 things you did well that day. Keep that book next to your bed and look at it now and then. Also, take a sheet of paper and write down every accomplishment of yours you can think of and keep adding to that list. It can be the tiniest thing - it doesn't have to be winning the Nobel Prize. You will be surprised how big your list will get if you really begin thinking about this. Look at it when you feel that low self-esteem kick in. Hugs. :)

I've finally, after *alot* of time & heartache, come 2 the painful decision *not* 2 tell them right now; they have enough 2 deal with. But every1's different, & only u can decide whats right 4 *u*.

I miss you heaps love. I know I haven't been here for you in a long while. I'm so sorry - please forgive me. I love you Pidge and I always will. *sighs and looks down* If you're looking for me, I'm here [herdarlinsin]

I'm sorry things have been so rough for you recently honey xx
from shortst101 :
Hugsssssssssssssssssss, I wish I could do something to make it all better, all I can do is tell you to lean on your friends.....for we are here for you.
from shortst101 :
I miss you.....are you doing ok?? Please email me and let me know your alive and well....at least I hope you are well. Hugsssssssssssssssssss
from inkdragon :
I'm always thinking of and praying for you. Love, Y.
from sunnflower :
I hope your mouth is feeling better now with the wisdom teeth gone and the infection hopefully under control.
from sunnflower :
Wow, when it rains it pours. Tell your mom I hope she finds work very soon. I guess one easy payment divesting you of funds is easier than many with all the late charges and other fees these companies tack on anymore.
from a-rainbow :
IM sorry to hear things are still carp but pleased about this stomach guy, if he can sort some of the probems who know huh? Endoscopys I really dont like, its the sedation, doesnt seem to work with me, I just feel out of control... as to wheat/lactose free diets, I know everything there is to know... I get gluten free food on perscription if you want somet o try?
from shortst101 :
I hope that your teeth are better now since you got the antibiotics. Sorry to hear about your friend and try not to make yourself feel badly about not 'knowing' that she was sick or paying more attention. You have quite a few problems of your own that are keeping you rather busy! Gall Bladder surgery isn't that bad, recovery time is about a week, but no surgery is fun!! I just hope that they hurry up and get it taken care of before you have an attack and it has to be done on an emergency basis! Sorry to hear that your Mum hasn't found work yet but I'm glad she can take the training course. I'll keep my fingers (and toes) crossed for her (i'll say a prayer too). YAY, I'm proud of you for getting this far with the withdrawel program. I think of you often, hope you know it.
from sketchedpony :
Perfectly understandable that you've been busy. I'm glad to hear that the prescription cut back is going well. And good luck with all the test with your stomach. Hope it isn't as bad as they think.
from inkdragon :
Poor Jo! I hope you feel much, much better very quickly!
from sketchedpony :
I hope you feel better. I had the worst time getting out my wisdom teeth too. But be sure that you take good care of them. My ex got a dry socket and that was the most painful thing ever.
from fan4 :
11 injections, just for anasthesia??? Ouch! I'm glad I didn't have to go through that when my Wisdom Teeth were taken out. I had an IV placed in my arm. I hope your pain goes away soon!

Hello! You requested a review from me a while ago...sorry it took so long for me to finally respond and do it. I had to go on hiatus shortly after the review site started due to a lot of things...but it's back up, and your journal has been reviewed! ^_^ Congrats!
from inkdragon :
We all unintenionally break things along our journeys. It's part of the learning process. The key is to realize the cycle and grab the opportunity to stop, apologize, correct and continue to love. xx & oo, Y.

Good entry on - it's not about me. We all think it's about us most of the time without realizing we are doing this. Thanks for the reminder!
from chillidip :
i had an email saved ready to send you but then my pc died and I lost it. Now I've forgotten what it was about...but thankyou for your help recently. you're a star xx

You do not always act like everything is about you. Sure everyone has a little bit of a selfish streak but it isn't a flaw. We all think about our best interest first. I'm still here if you ever need me.

Theyre a pain in the arse arent they? I got an appointment this week to see a therapist I asked to see 18 months ago. and it's for a clinic miles away that I can't get to. i don't want to go anymore, It would have been handy 12 months ago......
from sleepydust :
(((((((((piglet))))))))) that sucks xx
from sunnflower :
Never feel sorry for leaving me a long note and thanks for telling me more about the situation. I am shocked by all that you have to go through to get some proper medical treatment. I am sending you lots of hugs which are proven to be good for one's health!
from for-you-only :
I love the way your page fades out! That is so cool. And the layout is cute, with the sleepy and all. And wow, referals are tough, I was referred to a phycolagist once, I was like "what, my so-called friends seriously think I need mental help?" but anyway, years later, I'd like to see a phycollogist, but don't really have the money. Kinda ironic. Anyway, I like your diary. Hope to hear from you. ttfn! ( ta ta for now!)
from sunnflower :
What the heck is a psychological secretary anyway and how can they leave someone hanging on a limb like that while they get their act together? Why don't they send you to a nearby town for help?
from augustdreams :
I'm so glad you're not going cold-turkey any longer. I did that once, and like you, didn't realize it was dangerous. It was a miserable, horrifying experience. I hope you'll be feeling a bit stronger and better soon. Hang in there, and know that Aph, Woodstock and I are all thinking of you. If you ever need to talk/vent, I'm just an email away. {{{Hugs}}}

Hiya! Just wanna say thanx alot 4 adding ur birthday 2 my calendar. It's a good way 4 "brain-fogged" peeps 2 remember when their friends b'days's are! I know that when ur ill, birthdays (& christmas) aren't exactly fun or special (2 put it lightly!), but Iíd still like 2 send u a birthday message! I've not been around 4 awhile, so I don't really know how u are, but I hope life is being abit kinder 2 u atm. Sorry Iíve not been in touch with u 4 ages - it's not personal, I promise! Iím still struggling 2 catch up with every1 after my recent hospital "visit"! Iím always thinking of u tho' & hoping ur doing ok.

from sunnflower :
You are so brave and you are doing great. I am glad you are no longer going the cold turkey route. I'd like to give that doctor a good kick in the butt for not taking the approach of tapering you off this stuff in the first place. Hugs. :)
from sketchedpony :
Good luck. Really, I wish you all the luck in the world, I don't know at all what you are going through but I still want you to get better.

Don't be sorry for the long note - I'm glad to understand more about the pain medication issue. Hugs.
from sunnflower :
Happy Easter. I am confused about the pain killer thing because if you are in pain and need pain medication then you shouldn't be classified as addicted. Hugs.

from inkdragon :
You are most definitely not going mad! I have tried to limit my template changes to once a month, but I'm restless...sometimes it's only a couple of weeks between art changes. I am actually feeling better, not okay, but better. Which is good. I wish even better for you. Love ya!
from a-rainbow :
Hey Jo, Dependance on therapy is a nightmare, believe me I am clinging onto Fran, scratching her almost! I just dont think its going to work... I sympathise with a lot of the problems, even the addiction stuff you write about (you know me) should you ever want to talk im about xxxx

Hey Pidge :) I got your email. I will email you back tomorrow. Things are chaotic here, badly. I miss that comfort zone you always gave me to lean on when I needed to talk. I miss you too honey, very much. Keep fighting and hanging in there. Remember.. we are survivors. *huggles*
from cornflake1 :
Thanks so much for the note! The Read and Write software sounds really helpful - I'm glad you were able to get it! If I get an interview with Worcester, I will see if I can speak to their disability department about it. On my UCAS form I requested a dictaphone to help with note-taking, but I didn't even realise there was anything like Read and Write available. I really appreciate the tip! Sorry things are still so difficult for you. I was listening to something on the radio the other day about addiction to prescption meds, and was quite shocked (and saddened) to hear how little support there is. I hope things improve soon! xx

Happy Mother's Day to your mom. Hugs and stuff for you. I'm sorry that I haven't been in contact so much, I'm just not doing all that great mentally. I hope you are doing okay.....i'm here for you if you need me. Don't forget that.

Hi there thanks for the note, it was really sweet of you. I'm just starting my pills not a very hi dosage though, just to help me sleep. I've added you to my favourites list, hope you donít mind. Your in my thoughts also.
from sunnflower :
I am glad that you are tapering off on the meds instead of going completely off all at once. I struggled with panic attacks in my early 30s and it was very difficult. They did pass. I'm rooting for you!

I just wanted to wish you good luck on the lessening dependancy thing. I've never had that with pills but it seems really horrible. I wish that I could help. I'm here if you need me.
from complex-ptsd :
Hi Jo, Sorry I haven't answered your email very thoroughly yet. The anxiety definitely is a side-effect of drug withdrawals. I had severe anxiety and panic attacks for at least 4 months after I quit all my drugs cold turkey. I understand your decision to taper off and I encourage you to work that out with your doctor. I had to go cold turkey because for me it was the only way I could do it -- and I also wanted to get the withdrawals over with. Once you are completely drug free it can take a year or more to be completely over all of the withdrawal problems -- but it does get better with each passing day. At 5 1/2 months drug free I am finally feeling more mentally alert, and as long as I exercise daily I am also much calmer and happier (for the most part -- I'm still sad about some things, but I don't dwell on them all day long anymore). Please try not to go back on meds for the panic attacks, because eventually you will want to quit the meds and you will have to face the "rebound" panic attacks at some point. Hang it there -- it will get much better for you!
from sunnflower :
Oh, dear Jo - I am so bad at following the credo" save, save, save. I am sorry that you lost so much from your computer but glad you are junk free.

Arghh, that computer crash sounds like an absolute nightmare. Well done on being so patient with it though and getting it back up & running. If it was me I'd have probably ended up hurling the stupid thing at the wall or something! Hope you've managed to get some sleep at least since before too. Keep smiling, John xxx
from shortst101 :
How in the world did you manage to do that to your computer??? :( I'm sorry that it happened, I know you had lots of information and work on your computer! HUGSSSSSS

Please dont be angry with me ok? I do want to keep in touch with you and I havent had a clue as to how you feel about me because I havent heard from you and I can only read up on how you are through your entries. Just continue to be who you are and stay as strong as you have been. I cant tell you I know how youre feeling because I dont, but I want to understand and be here for you when you want me to be.

I'm not a doctor but if you are in pain and need pain medication how can that be classified as an addiction. Perhaps you really need the pain medication.

from complex-ptsd :
Hi! I just wanted to let you know you're not alone. I have fibromyalgia (same as M.E., I believe) and I was addicted to narcotics, amphetamines, anti-depressants, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, muscle relaxants, and alcohol. I had to cold turkey all of them -- it was the only way I could do it. I am now five months clean and sober. It's certainly hard, but it gets better. I'm 34. I don't know how old you are, but I can tell you that the drugs do a lot of damage over the long term. Chronic pain is not something that easily gets resolved, so it's much better to treat it alternatively and learn other ways to cope with it besides drugs. I have had good luck with massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, basic vitamins and minerals, and most of all daily exercise. Run, walk, swim, do whatever you can, but do something every day! That is what works for me. That and eating well, sleeping regular hours, and just taking good care of myself. Yes, I still have pain, but it can be managed. Drugs don't help in the long run because you build a tolerance simply by taking them. My fibromyalgia has improved a bit simply by getting those toxic substances out of my body and letting my body begin to heal itself. You really can do it. It's not easy, but it *is* worth it! Good luck!
from chillidip :
sleepy but just popping in to say hello. im sorry youre having problems with medication. i got into the habit of taking too many painkillers whether i was in pain or not. its not easy coming off but it does get easier with time. not much consolation now i know. will write when i can get my head together. love rachel xx
from inkdragon :
I'm surprised the doctor decided to wean you off of everything at once. That's no good for your body or mind. Thinking of you, Y.

You remind me how we can make a difference every day in other's people's live through our words and actions. Hugs.
from sketchedpony :
That's great that a stranger sent you mail. I'm really glad to hear that you got to see your friend that you haven't seen for a really long time. I honestly believe that we shouldn't have soldiers in Iraq, there is nothing good coming from them being there and they are all getting killed or injured.

from sketchedpony :
First of all, I'm sorry to hear that you are sick. That's horrible that your doctor hadn't been listening to you about your medicine and you dependancy on them. Doctors really don't seem to listen to anything anymore. I really do understand how you feel about Kate leaving. I was the same way when my doctors left, it's just very hard to find a medical professional who actually helps and is easy to talk to nowadays. I really hope that you can find someone else. And I really hope that things get better, I'm always here for you.

Hugs Jo, that seems so unfair - although as I'm about to be on Income support I guess I have to prepare myself for this sort of thing?

from ray0flight :
Oh dear - I hope and pray everythign works out for you ... that sucks EI isn't fair at all! You spend your life working for deductions and when you need it you get nothing. I'm soo sorry Jo. xoxoxox. if there is ANYTHING i can do to help please ask.. and that idea.. about designs is a great! do it.

That is so horrible that they give you so little money. They do the same thing here in the US, they want people to be homeless before they get any money from the government. I hope that your mom can find a job or the government could not be evil.
from candy-clouds :
Hi Jo! It would be such an understatement if I said you were good at html that I would have to poke myself in the eye! You are fantastic at html and I really think you should set up a site! Mini Designs! ;) Hehe! I wish all the best for you and promise that if I win the lottery you will be getting some :) Love you, thinking of you loads, Mini Me xxxx
from shortst101 :
I wish there were something I could do to help, just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Hugssssssss and love are being sent to you.
from oxsexigurlxo :
Hey hun. I'm sorry to hear that you are having so many financial problems. If you set up that website, I'd be sure to help you out if I could. I wish I had more ideas for you, but all my ideas involve the US govt, which doesn't help much since you're in the UK, but I'll cross my fingers and pray for you! :-) xoXo

Thanks for the concern, could you email me those techniques? Maybe they will help, I can at least try. Thank you so much for being worried about me. I hope everything is going okay for you.

You are the least selfish person I know, so don't let anyone say such things to you. I know you are kind & thoughtful & caring. Labels are for jars not human beings. Hugs, Lise xxx

Thanks for the sweet note hun. It's always nice to know someone else has faith in me. XoXo

Maybe you should make a collage with pictures of a sunny place, my other friend with M.E./CFS did that and it makes her feel so much better.
from a-rainbow :
You continue to fight Jo, it gives strength to many, including me xxxx
from love-rains :
Thank you for your note, it was very sweet. I can't believe that anyone enjoys my diary! It's not all that good! Indeed I haven't had it long, but I needed a vent for certain feelings and I think that it is very useful in keeping me balanced. I love your diary though. You are the epitome of sheer talent...
from zogbaby :
We all have different 'faces' & some we feel comfortable showing to the world & others we don't. I know you are probably a very different person in real life (I know I am) but I just want to say you've no reason to be afraid. I don't think diaries are always representive of people (particularly not public ones). Don't beat yourself up for having different faces hon. It's just human nature, we can't tell everyone everything.
from sleepydust :
(((((((sometrouble)))))) - your true friends and those you do love you, love you warts 'n' all - that's what friendship is all about. The only person you're being too hard on here is you. And hon it's not surprising at all that you don't want to talk about certain things - goodness if you were ok to talk about them then they wouldn't be an issue would they? Stay strong ok? Get that IM fired up girlie so we can have a good chinwag! P.S. Thanks for the 'pants' backup lol x
from sketchedpony :
I'm sorry that you still need to figure out what is going on with you're life. I understand that you don't want to tel people about everything just yet, I know how that feels. I hope you feel better.

Hi hon! I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your New Years wishes. I hope the same for you. We've both been through alot this past year, mentally and physically, and I think we need to put it behind us and bring some sunshine back into our lives. Even though I'm not around like I was, I still keep up with my favorites (you especially). Now that I finally have access to my messengers, we're going to have to catch up...I miss talking to you! (*BIG HUGS*)

We aren't sure when I'm going back to have my second surgery but they are hoping to get me in within the next two weeks. I've actually been in a lot of pain since Christmas, I don't know why.

That's because no one has the guts to get out a camera at those bad times.

Thanks for the New Year's wishes and a Happy New Year to you too, dear Jo! You are right about words - they are more powerful than we realize.
from ktdream :
Thank you for wishing me a happy new year (also the merry christmast).. sorry I haven't been up to date with wishing you the best on all the right days. I hope you're doing okay. I noticed James Patterson is one of your favorite authors and I just started reading Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas which is.. entrancing. I hope I can finish it soon because school will be starting on Monday. I don't mind though. Going back to college is something I look forward to as much as I will hate to leave all my wonderful warm comfortable and beautiful big family here in China... =(

Dear Jo jo I hope all is well with you- I miss our chats more than anything- but I guess somehow reading your updates should make up for it, but it doesn't.

Most surgeries now are same day procedures. I would have wanted to come home even if they didn't want me to because I really don't feel comfortable in hospitals. I think that's why I got well so fast in the recovery room.

Hiya Jo! How are you feeling after all your frivolous "galavanting" about?!!! No, I'm only joking - you know that! I was so, so, pleased for you that you managed to have a bit of a b'day "bash". I'm sorry your suffering for it, but I always think that some things are just worth "paying" for, aren't they? Do you know what I mean? Anyway, I hope you get over it asap, & that you also fight off that nasty chest infection very soon. I know how awful they can be, as I get loads of them - not very nice at all (to put it lightly!). Anyway, I hope my cheeky "begging" e-mail didn't upset you in any way - I didn't mean to! Take care & get strong soon. Love, Jess. x x x

10/21/03 Just read yesterday's entry. HONEY! I am positive your mom is an intelligent woman who is equally motivated to get another job, even better than her last. Your physical symptoms are just that, physical. You know it, never doubt it. You cannot get through this alone. Any of it. Get rid of that letter, now. Stop the self-torture. Get to your counselor (Kate, I think). Talk this out, listen to her and listen to your heart... you are worthy of getting better, you are loved and you are strong - for yourself and for your mom.

Hey sweetie! Just stopping by to check up on you. Hope things are good over there and that you're keping warm, okay? Love, Gaby
from sunnflower :
You are under no obligation to read a card blaming you for something you didn't do. Don't read it, but maybe do something cathartic with it like a shred it or mail a response to unsent letters here at diaryland. I'd suggest you burn it or mail it back but both can be more of a pain than it would be worth. Burning paper can get out of control - look at that forest fire last year. Damn unwanted letters! Take care.
from sketchedpony :
Sorry that Geoff's parents will always blame you for his death. That's not something that you should have to deal with.
from kinlaraseren :
I'm so sorry Jo...stay strong, as I know you are. You're in my thoughts. Take gentle care. Lots of love and hugs Nat xxx p.s - Thanks very much for the lovely card
from ray0flight :
Don't open it. Throw it out. Stick it in a drawer.. you have enough going on and you are not to blame. People find it easier to blame others then to take it upon themselves.
from a-rainbow :
Oh Jo... your not to blame for anything hun... xxx
from inkdragon :
Throw that damn card away. Do it. You are not to blame. They are cruel to do this to you. I'm sorry for their loss but enough is enough. Throw it away. Do it. Please, Y.
from sketchedpony :
Things aren't supposed to be that way. It's just sometimes they feel like they should. You'll find someone. It just may be a while.
from shortst101 :
No, it's not supposed to be that way. Everyone of us needs someone else to be there for them, even if we don't like to admit it. Never forget you always have someone in your corner.
from a-rainbow :
Its not meant to me this way... I promise xxx
from starlight42 :
Congrats on becoming a God-Mother!! Sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well though.
from kinlaraseren :
Hi hunny. That's lovely news, I'm so pleased for you. Thank you for your message...means a lot to me. Love and hugs Nat xxx
from chillidip :
thats great. im glad youve had some good news at last. take care of yourself, love rach xxxxxxx
from cnderella :
Thank you so much for the code you gave me for my template so I wouldn't be listed in google. I wasn't sure what you meant about putting it up without the %%'s. Im just supposed to delete them from the code? I put it up the way it is so lets hope it works. Thanks for your help!
from gabriela83 :
Congrats to you for being a godmother! and to your mate for bringing a beautiful baby boy to the world!!! Love, Gaby
from sketchedpony :
That's great that your friend gave birth to a baby boy. And about the God-mother thing, that is amazing too. I've always wanted to be a kid's God-mother.
from a-rainbow :
Hugs to you, & thanks for the email xxx
from zogbaby :
sweet Jo. Sorry about your health troubles. Tempted to power-puff my way in there in & tell your body off. Glad that finally someone is taking your breathing probs seriously. I hug you.. Keeping my paws crossed everything improves for you.. Love n' hugs, Lise xx
from sketchedpony :
It's perfectly fine that you haven't had much time to update or write. I have been indiposed for the past week anyway so I didn't know the difference.
from a-rainbow :
Hunny if you get chance can you tell me when its a good time to ring I keep missing you xxx
from eclecticmist :
Hi Jo. Thanks for the note you left me! When I logged on this evening, I had THREE email notifications about three new notes and they all really cheered me up! So just wanted to say thanx and really hope things aren't too bad for you at the mo. Sending you hugs and smiles!! *~*~Sara~*~*
from ray0flight :
I am sorry that things didn't go as well as you had hoped. I know how you feel, I used to be afraid to be alone because I was afraid someof my problems would come back and became fiercly dependant on everyone around me. *hugs*
from inkdragon :
10/10/03 I am sure your doctor knows best, but even if you feel better after a couple of days on the antibiotics, I would go to the hospital about oxygen not getting into your lung. You know this, but you are not going to get any better by not allowing yourself to sleep. Maybe you should share your concerns and needs with your mom, she may have some to share with you. How I wish there wasn't an ocean separating us. Take care and don't hide things from the people who care (like me!). Long distance hugs, Y.
from a-rainbow :
You know Kate is bringing up a lot of issues for you, but I believe in your strength to get through this. Im going to call you later, if thats okay, just to chin wag ;) :p xxx
from ray0flight :
I am so glad to hear you are going to contact them. It made my day (I got your note thanks) I am glad you had a good day too. :o)
from shortst101 :
hugsssssssssssss, thinking of you always
from a-rainbow :
You know its okay to "moan", but I dont see you doing that, I read this entry as an update its okay to even complain, life has been so very unfair on you, dont suppress that, I guess there is a fine line in some people, but not all. if you want to talk you know where I am, I hope the physical & empotional stuff get sorted, here if you want to talk. Best Wishes Kitten xxx
from zogbaby :
I wish you weren't suffering so much. I wish I had my fairy wand & could zing it away from you. As for bothering AYME you clearly ARE a SAM & need the extra support. In cheers there is a form for SAMS to fill in.... You never moan sweet pea.. Sometimes it helps to read that others are having a hard time too, you don't feel as alone... Extra carebear hugs, Take care AND FILL IN THE FORM!
from ray0flight :
I know that you don't want to be a bother to the AYME people but I am sure that wouldn't be the case at all. I know how it feels to be sick all the time - as I am sure you know - hunny if you have resources to help yourself out, if only just a little, please do it. You aren't wasting anyones times or resources. Don't feel bad for complaining about how you feel. Other people are not in your reality and may not have the same issues you do. Everything you said in this entry - oh - it's so scary how well I understand and how many times I have said the same things in my own mind. Do what's best for yourself. Do what you need to do. It's SO tiring to feel sick all the time. Take care of yourself. xoxoxoxoxoxo
from gabriela83 :
Hey sweetie! I'm really glad you updated on your health state and I'm really sorry I have not been around as much as I usually am, I've been really engaged lately but that's no excuse for not stopping by! It sounded wonderful when you said "October in London", I just wished I was there! But you must be having a rough time with the cold, eh? Keep warm Jo, I don't want you catching a cold! And what was that about the door...??? lol. Let me know! Take care sweets! Love always, Gaby

It doesn't always have to be a bad thing you know dear, now if YOU don't want to! Much love, Gaby

from sketchedpony :
I really hope that things get better for you. Things seem to be so down. Just try to keep your head up.
from mspsyched1 :
That's what friends are there for...to listen, to help and to love. Sometimes it hurts more when you hold it in...so let it out. I know I feel better when I get things off of my chest. And remember, you've let me vent to you. I sure hope your mom starts feeling better soon. I know that's only adding stress (that you DONT need) right now. But (and I know its easier said than done) but dont let it stress you out to the point its taking a physical toll on you. You dont need that to happen. Although my hugs come from thousands of miles away, distance doesnt weaken them. (HUGS TO YOU!!!)
from starlight42 :
hey girl, sorry it's been a while, I've been so busy! Anyway, hope things work out for your mum and that your foot feels better soon!

Ho Jo, I've only got your hotmail account e-mail and don't know it you're still picking up on that - my e-mail is sheilagoode@hotmail.com if you e-mail me I can send you my password, etc. Hope you're OK? Hugs sheila x
from kinlaraseren :
Hi hunny. Thank you very much for the card in the post...it really means a lot to me and made me smile to think I have such special friends as you. I'm sorry to hear about your mum. I hope things are better soon. I'm always here to listen to your problems/worries no matter what's happening with me, ok? Love and huge hugs xxx
from sunnflower :
Sorry to hear you dropped the laptop on your foot. Ouch! Try to focus on a few small good things in a day - like maybe just the color of the sky or a note from a friendly reader. I know this is a lot of hardship that you are going through right now but hang in there. Hope things work out for your mom about her job.
from livingwreck :
Sorry to hear your mum could lose her job. It seems to be happening everywhere now.
from zogbaby :
that's what friends are for but I know what you mean. I don't like dumping my probs on others either for same reason. jaz tells me I have to so my head won't explode but you know... Hope mum will be OK. Maybe mum could do with a break??
from gabriela83 :
Hey Jo! I'm glad your foot didn't break and I'm sorry it is swollen! Thanks for stopping by, I missed you dear. I hope you find out about your mum's job soon, I know what you mean when you say "it is the not knowing what makes it worse". Take care hun! Love, Gaby

from shortst101 :
I'm worried about you as well......hugssssssssss
from inkdragon :
I tried to get this into the guestbook and I don't think it made it, so... Jo, Jo, Jo! What about you - my friend? I'm worried about you! I am much better, it was a huge misunderstanding and now it is being handled. I'm concerned that you are not updating every day like you used to. Any time you want to communicate outside of diaryland (or here), please do! Thinking of you, Yvonne
from sketchedpony :
I'm sorry things are so down. I wish there was some way that I could help you to feel better.

It's so much easier to give advice than to follow it. I'm guilty of the same thing. If you need to talk......
from shortst101 :
I wish I could be there for you. I'm really worried about you. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers daily.

*love* and *hugs* to make you feel better x x x
from nocompromise :
you know, I really don't think it's a matter of "questioning how honest you're being with yourself" when you tell yourself those things... it's more like a "blind faith" kind of thing, you know? Words of encouragement help us, no matter how futile the situation may be, or how cliche the words become. As long as that tiny tiny tiny little shimmering glitter of hope is still in there somewhere, then you're not lying to yourself. Oh geez... I said "shimmering glitter of hope". See? Cliche!

Im so glad to hear things are looking up for you. Being sick is no fun at all
from starrycrayon :
I am so glad you are feeling better now. *Gentle hug* I hadn't checked your journal in a while and I realized you hadn't updated so I got worried. I'm going through a lot of things recently... But I am trying so hard to pull through. We are all strong :-) Take care of yourself.

Hey - I just noticed that you signed my guestmap early in August. Silly me - I haven't checked there in awhile and missed it. Thanks for the nice note about my diary too!
from sunnflower :
Yes, you are right - there is a little bit of the romantic in most of us. I just love your new template and all the nice transitions! Good job.
from gabriela83 :
Hey darling, I hope you are doing well, I'm worried cos you have not updated in ages and I'm wondering if you're back at the hospŪtal? Hope not! Let me know as soon as you can if you are okay. Love always, Gaby
from candy-clouds :
hi jo. how are you? hope your ok at the moment.x
from inscrutably :
i agree with fan4 :) you're so wonderful
from fan4 :
"There's probably a little bit of me that's just like you." Maybe this is why I like your diary so much, and have never grown tired of it. I hope I never tire of your diary. I don't have the types of problems you do, but you are a nice person.
from shortst101 :
Thinking of you......
from me-me-meee :
Well you read it right, but I wrote it myself, throwing a temper tantrum. hehe It's nice to have the old friends, but don't let my personal nature fool you.. I've never met either of them so unfortunately we don't get to go out and have fun. As much as I love my online friends, I do wish they were closer so we could actually socialize. :(

I'm a bookworm too.

I wish I could help. HUGSSSSSSSSSSSS

First, thanks so much for the note of encouragement, I really appreciate it. Second, I haven't had much time for reading here either- so I'm sorry to hear you were sick! But glad you are better. Third, I love that Socrates thing- so I hope you don't mind I'm posting it in my diary, but of course I will link to you and say you discovered it. Hope you have a good weekend!
from dragonbuds :
08/22/03 Guestbook is acting up so I have to put my message here. You had recently written about making daily entries and I thought you were taking a couple days off for a reason...that is, a reason other than being in the hospital! My word Lovey, when you do it, you do it well. Reading this entry gave me the chills. You and your poor mom. On a much lighter note, I really like this new design. Very organized and complete. Nice. I hope you feel better. Always thinking of you, Y.

Dipping Dots are icecream that are in the shape of spheres. There are three varieties. One is cookies and cream, and it comes with Oreo Cookie pieces. Another one is bananna split, and the third is a mint type. I've had the first two. Bananna split is my favorite. It really does taste like one! I'm not interested in the mint flavor. I don't like mint icecream very much.

Hey Jo. I am glad that the little overdose didn't do much damage! Yikes. I wish there was something I could do about your illness. It must be so frustrating. I know nothing I can say will help, but I think you know that I at least wish it could!

hey jo! how've u been? i've been trying to get ahold of you on the aim but had no luck...i hope you had a great weekend! *hugs*

Unfortunately, we can't read every diary out here, there are sooooo many great people here, I'm thankful to have met the ones I have, as I know that you are too.
from fan4 :
I caused the reviewer to be mad at me 'cause first she asked me where my link to the site was, I told her, but then when I thought she hadn't recieved my note, I wrote "If you still can't find my link, then I won't be getting a review from you", or something like that. Reviewer in bad mood=lower score than could've recieved. She also marked me down on layout 'cause my rainbow template takes forever to download, had some sort of issues with my archiving, thought my rainbow template didn't suit me...didn't like my impateince over at cherry review. see, I had a link up to cherry, but since my review site is only a place to store a link, only one site can be linked at a time. forgot to tell violet this, and asked if I could do a text link (the Diaryland shortcut to linking to another diary). She said yes, but then wondered why I couldn't link to her, and yet had a link to cherry. I didn't create the cherry link though, someone else did. At time, I truly didn't know html, so I couldn't have been able to add a link to violet in the other links. I remember Violet saying I'm not how I appear to be, should have more patience when it comes to a stranger reviewing my diary, and I think she said that she couldn't believe I was really a college student. My diary was the first one she didn't like. I skim read through the review, but I've told you what I did catch during my skim-reading.
from fan4 :
The review site is still up, but since the most recent post up there is an April one, I'm not going to create a link like I was going to do. *sigh* Would've been nice to have someone interview me, ask questions. I could change my review link to another site if I wanted to. Don't think I'll ever get one from cherryreview. Grrr Wasted too much of my time being all angry with that group, asking for a review, then taking it back, then wanting one again when my name was finally removed! Cost me my score at Violet Revu.
from iwantacowboy :
Something is going weird with SignMyGuestbook. It did the same thing to me on your diary. Who knows?
from iwantacowboy :
I think that you are so right about Diaryland. It is exactly how you described it.

*agrees* recently ive been feeling quite disturbed over peoples reaction to sadaams sons being found dead. yes, they did evil things but i cannot celebrate the death of anyone, no matter what they have done. publishing pictures of their dead bodies and patting each other on the back for murdering people. it makes no sense, it makes us as bad a them. murder is murder no matter who commits it. sometimes its understandable, but i can never feel proud of it. hope this person didnt hurt you too much. lots of love me xx
from zogbaby :
Stupid guestbook!! wouldn't let me in! ARRGGGG!!!! Anyway to the message! you are so right Jo. Innocent people get hurt in wars. It's not the people who start them. We are not anti-Amercian we are ANTI WAR. There's a difference. Hugs you tight.
from fan4 :
Did the "Iraqi Baby" poem come from the "Poets against the war" website? Some of the poems there are in book form.

darm guestbook anyway = Yeah, there is a difference. To tell only a bit of what your feeling is not lying, it's only part of the truth, where as lying full stop is lying. When you feel ok to talk about things you will, but the moment has to be right for you! Thinking of you Mighty Me.xxx
from viks :
hiya jo, i thought i would call in and send some big huggles to you. they should be downloading anad wraping their arms around you about..... NOW! Love and hugs vikki xxx
from fan4 :
My ENT specialist drained my cyst, and said I should apply warm compresses to it twice a day for 3 weeks. If it dissapears, no problems! If however, my cyst lingers after the 3 weeks are over, I'll have to go in for surgery. Thought of surgery scares me! The specialist told my parents and I that chances are I'd end up with a scar on my face if surgery does end up being required.
from gabriela83 :
Hi darling! I know it can get annoying when people tell you "you can do it if you really want to", so I wont say it again. Just remember all those persons have as much faith in you as I do, believe in yourself Jo! You're much more stronger than you think. About the mood swings, hey! I go through the same ones every day and I'm not even ill! lol (*ahem* that was suposed to make you laugh). Take care my sweet Jo! Much love, Gaby
from inkdragon :
Hi Sweetie! Guestbook is down so I came here to drop you a message. About your entry, it's so hard when the mind won't shut off. Some people will never understand, but some do try hard to comfort! Please pray for save travel for my family tomorrow, we are bringing the boys to camp. They are staying for a week. We will be traveling four hours each way...my poor poochies, left home all day! :( Have a good day/night. Love, Y.
from dombilly :
hey jo. thanks for stopping by and caring bout my family and me. i appreciate it greatly. *tries to smile*
from fan4 :
Good luck! Kate sounds like a nice person, and should be able to help you.
from jinkleberry :
Hey :o) Yeh...it's still there I think. I'm sorry for accusinmg you of being worried about bad reviews or whatever. I just read it and assumed *haunting voice from my teacher...never assume* that cos it was bad it wasnt on your site. On re-reading the review I see taht it really was very malicous, and that Stephanie (was that the name...hope so or this doesnt make sense!) certainly has no right to write what she says. If she doesnt like the diary, fine, but i certainly dont think she should use the fact you're in therapy or your illness against you. She's probably lucky and has never had to face illness or had to see a therapist. But she has no right to critisize what she doesnt know about, and especially not in such a malicous tone. I've read more of your diary and I totally disagree with what she said. I find your writing beautiful and totally unpathetic or whatever it was she said. I just hope that the reviewer wasnt allowed to review any more diaries. I hadnt really thought about it from your point of view before...I just saw a bad review...then that it wasnt on your reviews page and thought 'oh, she cant take bad reviews' but having read more of your diary, and re-read the review I see it was malicous and cruel critisim without any constructiveness (if that makes sense) and I'm sorry for accusing you of not putting it on your site cos you dont deserve a review like that or to be reminded of it...anyway, um...yeh, sorry for a long note...keeep up the writing and dont let one immature persons review put you off cos i love your diary :o)
from elvinarcher :
Yeah, Rachel's an evil one. My only friend with horrible grammar, so she steals my stuff... She's got more than one diary name, so perhaps... Recognize rockbaby8246, missfribbles, and lifefeltlike? There are the three I know of; I hope there aren't anymore!!
from fan4 :
Do we share the same brain, or at least a portion of it? Your current entry reflects what's going on in my own head!
from starlight42 :
and I see you did it yourself. so cool!
from starlight42 :
I LOVE your new design!! I want to steal it! Don't worry, I won't. Anyway, I finally posted the answers to your questions. Thanks and let me know if you want me to ask you some
from jinkleberry :
I read your diary, well...some of it anyway and I dont agree with all of the enigmareview, and dont think you deserve to have that written about you, but someone still took the time to review your site so maybe, even though it's a bad review you should put it on your review site? I mean, the good reviews far outweigh the bad, but I just think...I dunno, they reviewed your diary so deserve to have it on the review page? Even though the review isnt necessarilly true? I dunno...it made me read your diary anyway. I'm drawn to bad reviews more than good ones...oh well...nice diary...mickey mouse :o)
from ray0flight :
I like your new layout. Lalalalalala.

from ilive2ride :
I hope that things get better for you. Thanks for signing my guestbook, I love it when someone says something that makes me feel less crazy so I'm glad that I could do that for you.
from starrycrayon :
can I ask you a question? I was just wondering how long you have been sick. For me, I was stuck at home, almost always in bed, for 3 years. It was miserable. I never got completely better, and I can honestly say I have never had a day without some symptom of one of the 3 illnessed effecting me, but I did get better eventually. Most people will eventually get better... I know its not too helpful, but just hang in there. If you ever want to message me, a link to my name on AIM is in my diary "AIM ME" Take care of yourself, Jo :-) and hang in there.
from starrycrayon :
Yes, thanks for the help with the diaryrings :-D It did make sense to me (amazingly enough... not many things do these days). Hope you feel better soon!
from tropicalmist :
You.are.beauitful.to.me
from starrycrayon :
I was wondering how you got all of your rings on your rings page to be all neat and matching colors. Mine are all messy looking.
from lamlok :
hey, you got yourself a new reader. and have a good weekend too (i will, got Order of the Phoenix today. whoo.)
from chillidip :
take care you xxxx
from lamlok :
hey, that's fine. i read your note to ticca and that was all i needed. in fact i was reading some of your entries earlier. they're really good. sorry about all the miscomprehension. anger makes people act rashly and stupidly. i'm really glad that this was sorted out. and i was gonna make the red-head comment, but ticca beat me to it. best of luck, lamlok.
from ticca :
Hey, kindred redhead!
from ticca :
Quick note to thank you for your thank you (sorry it's not in the guestbook...you know why). And a zillionth sorry for kinda accusing you of censorship - it was an unfounded allegation. I totally understand why you did it now - thanks for sparing me grief! And remember - you're not a bitch, you're feisty!
from starlight42 :
Never one to keep my mouth shut, I left that theif a note. How dare she. It's just so wrong. I know how mad you must be. I can only wonder if now those of us who told her our thoughts, if she'll be after us too and stealing our work...
from ladypoetess :
You write beautiful words. *bows* I am sorry the feeble-minded have tried to drag you down. You are strong - I know you will triumph.
from chillidip :

Couldn't get onto your guestbook so am just sending big hugs and a mixing bowl xxx
from basria :
The weight loss thing is a bit of a sticky issue. If you were a bit heavy before (or you WISHED to lose some weight) forty-two pounds is quite an accomplishment, but you shouldn't have lost the weight so quickly. I know it probably hurts like hell to swallow, but try to stay away from sugary or overly-sweet foods---they'll make you feel even worse. Rest up as much as you can, and I hope you feel better soon.
from gabriela83 :
Evanescence rocks my socks. Look at the bright side though, you guys get Oasis, U2, Westlife and all those good bands before any country in America!. Iím glad to hear the medicines are kicking in dear, those are awesome news, right?. Take care sweetie. All my love, Gaby
from inkdragon :
Forty two pounds since 2/3/03 without exercise...your personal trainer says, "that's a lot of weight to lose under those conditions." Make sure you check with your doctor. There are a lot of variables to consider: how much weight you could/wanted to lose, the change in the diet (changing how your body uses the nutrients coming in) and other medical issues. The change in your diet could be contributing to your depression/sadness also. Blood test time, ask about adrenal exhaustion, when the glands are not functioning to an optimum level for YOUR body. Remember optimum doesn't mean just because your numbers fall in the "norm" range it's all working for you. One person can register as normal and it's not good enough for their particular needs. Let me know if you want more info on this and I will e-mail it to you. Just know this (AE) is very common with CFS/Fibro/etc. Low levels can contribute to exhaustion and pain! Love ya, Yvonne
from carlita27016 :
Hey! Thanks so much for the note - will definitely check out beautify! :) Thx again. Take care :)
from sunnflower :
Love the image of looking at the stars from someone else's garden. Some of this is all just a point of view - and you carry yourself with you wherever you go so think about what St. Paul said which went something like this - in whatever state I am in, therein I am content. Hugs :)
from candy-clouds :
Mighty Me, I couldn't sign your book so I'll leave you a little note. I hope you are ok! It does matter and so do you! I think your great! Love loads, Mini You x x x ;) x x x
from tandia :
Well, you have to be the most polite person I've reviewed! Yeah for you.
from gabriela83 :
Well thank you my dear Jo, weíre princesses and deserve to be treated like royalty lol. Youíre right about Leo, and Iím giving the situation some serious thoughts, thanks for the concern, how sweet of you!. I hope you had a wonderful day today darling. Love, Gaby
from augustdreams :
I just wanted to thank you for your sweet, supportive messages. They mean a lot to me. I've got a new email address. I'll send it along, with a nice message from me and the fuzzy ones to go with it. Thanks for being your wonderful self. Many, many hugs to you!
from tropicalmist :
You're sweet. Thank you. I hope you that once you read on about me in my older diary you don't find yourself worrying about me. I have moved past that older stage of wanting- I need to be me now. Yah know?
from tropicalmist :
I stumbled across your diary looking at a review page. I'm glad that I did. Wehn I read your entry about M.E/CFS I was crying- you have a beautiful soul. Keep it that way. My newest quote by thge way- "You can do something in an insant that will give you heartache for life" Stop in sometime and leave me a note or whichever. Hugs- Chrissy
from nocompromise :
dude you're not fucked up. i've been meaning to write ya for awhile... people don't realize how much of a gift it is to be able to enjoy "the little things that most people overlook." who says that those things don't matter? society? and if society is what dictates what matters in life, then FUCK IT. what matters most is what YOU care about. anyone should be so lucky to be able to experience seeing the world through your eyes. the way i see it, "irrational, paranoid, and oversensitive" REALLY means that you're "complex, cautious, and extremely acute", all traits which are wonderful to have. take care of yourself and smile for me...
from sunnflower :
You know sometimes when times are really hard we find that people we thought would always be there for us jump ship and other people who we would never have imagined stepping up to the plate do so. I have had some real surprises in my life with regards to this and have learned some valuable lessons about where people really are on the friend-o-meter. Sometimes people just can't handle something even though it would be nice if they could and you really need them to and even though they care about you - maybe it frightens them, overwhelms them, etc. etc. Take care - sending hugs. :)
from sunnflower :
Hi and thanks for the note. You are right on the picture! Congrats on the great review by the way - well deserved. Also, what you wrote about someone following you around with a dustbin - what a fabulous image. It inspired me to consider a page of favorite diaryland quotes - that may be the first with your permission.
from darkfairy13 :
awsome template and cool diary, but ur entry made me hungry *tear*
from carlita27016 :
Hey Jo, how are ya doin? Aw, thank ya so much for the help with the lettering stuff :) You're sweet! By the way, I dunno if I've told you this before, but I LOVE your layout!! Its just amazing, the picture, the goldish colours, and everything. Its so simple, yet so meaningful at the same time. hehe. Well thanks again and have a good day :) -Carly-
from sunnflower :
I like Evanescence too and for awhile they were being sold as a Christian group although I guess they have decided not to box themselves into that now. There is a correlation however between music and mood. You can use music like medicine sometimes so you may want to reconsider your play list a bit for a little extra lift.
from caerydd :
It made me giggle too, which is why I put it in there ;) And hon, self-centredness is definately allowed. Everyone needs to think about themselves once in a while, granted.....a couple of us do it to extremes, but I get the feeling that you aren't one of them. *hugs*
from candy-clouds :
I can't seem to get into your diary, all I see is black so I hope you are ok today *hug*
from gabriela83 :
So, your gbook is being as mean as usual to me. What did I ever do to it?!?! lol. Just stopping by to send you a huge hug. And much love and kisses all the way from Peru. Heh. Take care dearest!
from candy-clouds :
Couldn't sign your book so here is my message: You are beautiful! Your just a bit chipped (like a vase) but will will get some super glue and stick the chipped bit back on and you will be more wholer and than you already are! Love you lots Mighty Me xxx
from a-rainbow :
Your not cracked & broken... far from it... you have had a hard time... harder than you have let on & your struggling... its no reflection on you as a person & one day a butterfly you will emerge with your wings spread wide... I hate saying I will always be here, as I cant promise that, but I will do my best for you... howís that? Much love xxx

from starlight42 :
I love your "Let Me" poem! That's the best.
from werx :
Thanks for the note. You were right, she was upset but we sorted things out :)
from augustdreams :
I most definitely experienced the 90's! The 80's, too. Remember "The A Team", "The Smurfs", Neon flop socks, MC Hammer pants and watching "Saved by the Bell" on tv? Heh. You hang in there, sweetie. Your last couple of entries sound like you're feeling so overwhelmed. I know it sounds cliche, but all any of us can do is our best. Take good care of you and remember you've got people who care - and that's a blessing you can wrap around you like a blanket when you're feeling sad/sick.
from boltedwrists :
hi. Thanks for the review!
from jen69 :

THis doctor will put me on a diet as a matter of fact, he is a nutricionist or something like that. He'll take good care of me Jo, don't worry. and thanks for the compliment, but there are a couple of extra kilos so... yeah. Much love sweetie, Gaby
from lessthanjon :
Hello, thanks for your note, I live in North wales during term time but I live in York during term and no dont worry I wont have to kill you for telling you, where abouts do you live? I read your 'about me' section an just thought I'd say that, that witch from snow white used to scare the hell out of me too, those big, manic staring eyes, she was well creepy.
from gabriela83 :
Hi sweetie! I had a fun day, thank you. I hope you had a good one as well. You haven't update yet so I'll wait for that to add my comment of the day :0p Love, Gabs

from gabriela83 :
You made yourself clear too sweetie, don't worry. I totally understand where you're comming from. I'm really glad you reviewed me as well, I owe Our Views one of my favorite dland people :0)
from gabriela83 :
Dude, I don't think even mother Theresa KNEW how to be, I mean, nobody KNOWS how to be... eh...I think I'm confusing you a little more. Well, what I mean is that you don't have to know who to be, leave everything in the hands of time. Time heals all woonds and time tells us what to do, makes us even better persons. So, I hope this helped a little and if I confused ya even more, don't ask because I wouldnt know how to explain myself. And, dammit! your guestbook wont let me sign again so fast! Its EVIL I tell you, evil! lol. *MWAC!* bye!

New layout...cool. I just wanted to say hello again and that I can so relate to the things you've been writing about lately. I guess a lot of people have similar feelings at break ups. Hope you have a great week!
from jelibeary :
Hello I just wanted to thank you for the review I am glad that you pointed out alot of stuff especially the lol thing I went back to see what you mean and you were right I do have a problem. (It got on my nerves too.) :) I don't need the info for the picture my brother is coming over today to help me out on that. Thank you for being honest and fair. :) Larenda

G-book would not let me update so quickly. So, "you said it, now I want a photo!" I was brave, you can be.
from sasori-gal :
I've just spent some time reading your latest entries and I DO understand. Although there will be many hurdles and difficult moments to overcome, you have taken a big step in the right direction and you have many friends here in your corner to help you through those rough times. Take good care!
from starlight42 :
I am doing good. I am so proud that you didn't call him. That's a hard thing to do. Breaking up after two years is awful. I know you can get through this though. And down the road you will meet someone who will treat you like a queen! He's out there somewhere... Hope you have a good weekend. Maybe you can go out with the girls or something?
from nocompromise :
I was trying to think of something that I could say that you probably haven't heard yet. But right now, I'm kinda drunk so my thinking is kinda whacked. Although I can say that I do know how you feel right now, and I wish I could be there to give you a big hug. A big drunk bearhug. The type that makes it hard for you to breathe, yet is warm and soothing at the same time. Yeah. One of those. Keep your head up.
from starlight42 :
I'm sorry about your break up. But it sounds like it's for the best. You deserve someone to tell you how wonderful you are! I am linking you tomorrow as my fav. entry. I've enjoyed your last several, but I love the poem and "I warned you". *smile*
