well, i don't know..... - July 20th 2009, 02:13 AM

better, i would say that i'm doing a lot better.
i'm not near as negative or as bad.
but i'm not there.
not quite.

"the problem is that your an extremist,"
yes, it's true.
either i'm extreamly sad, mad, happy, etc.
i need to learn to level it out.
easier said than done.

it's easier for me now than it has been for years.
i don't get suicidal as easy but i still have my days and i'm afraid to let people know that because i've been so high and then i feel weak and i don't want to make people mad.
i'm better but i'm not there but i want people to think i'm totally better and well i don't know.


when life is in discord; praise ye the Lord

keep your faith alive.
we're not alone <3

well its progress and your working toward
leveling it out which is good (:
you have a goal and if you want it enough
i know that eventually your going to get it.
i have faith in you!

maybe you need to let people know your mood fluctuations
because then you can talk to them and they will be able
to be there when your high and low. they wont think your weak
or feel disappointment, they care about you and want you to
be at your best even if its a bumpy road to getting there.

Hey Cassie,

I am so glad you are feeling better; that is great! You know these things do take time so please don't feel too bad that your moods are up and down because I think that is probably normal(it happened to me for a while). With time it will get better and you seem to want it to get better and that always helps.

Cassie, there is nothing wrong with telling the people you care about that you still have bad days. The thing is that if you hide your feelings from them it probably won't help your mood very much. Open up to them and tell them what you told us "I am doing better but I am not all the way there" I don't think they will be disappointed in you and they will probably try their hardest to be understanding.

Please hang in there Cassie and my pm box is always open.

~Jenna~

Hey Cassie,

I'm glad that you're doing better. Better is still better, even if it's not completely there. Learning to level things out can be challenging, but it's possible. Maybe, if you start to notice that you're leaning completely into one emotion, pause for a second to take a deep breath and think of some things that could help temper your emotions. For example, if you're really mad about something, try to look for positive that could come out of the situation, or ways to change it. But I think that "being moderate" is something that everybody has to work on. So don't be discouraged

And it's always definitely okay for you to tell people how you are, whatever that might be. You don't have to pretend like everything's okay - not being okay doesn't make you weak. And knowing when to ask for help is a strength. One to be rather proud of, actually. And letting people know when you're not completely okay can help you on your way to getting there, having their support. Most people won't get mad - and if they do, then tell them to shut up because you're asking for their help. Or just ignore them.

But anyway, hang in there <3


Drown in the music,
dance in the rain,
block out the thunder,
and let the scars fade.

what's it matter; nobody cares.
i tried texting him but it didn't work,
because it just esclated into what it always does
"i'm not responding to your negative crap,"
"well, then what do you want me to say without making you mad,"
"nothin, i hate texting and you make it worse...from now on only once or twice a day"

HOW IS IT MY FAULT I HAVE A BAD DAY!?!

Cassie its not your fault that you having a bad day at all. Sometimes people just arent very understanding. And I know that it hurts when somebodys like that but try not to dwell on it for to long.

Its really really good that your doing better. It really is a work in progress so you just have to keep trying and keep going and eventually you'll be even better then you are right now.

You dont have to pretend to be completly better when your not your allowed to feel and allowed to show your emotions. Dont hold what your feelings in. Part of getting better is about talking about how your feeling and getting to the bottom of why your feeling the way that you are.

Hey Cassie,

I am sorry that this happened but don't give up because people do care about you. I know it is hard when the person we are going to for support can't help us but sometimes people aren't very understand and maybe he is going through a rough time at the moment and is getting frustrating. Also, maybe seeing you hurt so much hurts/frustrates him and he ends up snapping. Cassie, is there anyone else you could talk to? Maybe you need to go to someone else for a little bit.

Please don't believe that no one cares because I care and I know that there are people in your life that care. Please keep on holding on and if you ever need to talk feel free to pm me.
