Well I'll be the first to say that it has been a while since I've written in here. Sometimes its hard for me to find the right stuff to say. I'm so different than the person who started this journal... that i'm starting a new one... so much has changed... I think I need to just move into a different state of mind... so here goes...
please comment on my front page and I'll add you... that way I know who actually wants to join as opposed to adding you myself :)
Ok guys... I seriously need your help... if you are a female and wouldn't mind filling out this survey it would be greatly appreciated! (if you want to just leave an anonymous comment with the answers to this survey it would be great!) Please do so before tomorrow afternoon :) MUAH!!!!!

Dear Participant, I greatly appreciate you filling this survey out. It will help so much with further understanding the sociological effects of pregnancy on young women. As I mentioned under the title, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again. Sincerely,
it was childish to post such things... it was a written catharsis... so... now that the catharsis is over... so is the entry...
I miss everyone and I'm working to feel better about myself and who I am....
I've been doing a lot of looking into paganism again and I am starting to feel more at home in it... the PSA helps a lot... and a lot of self discovery... plus Dan is very helpful and supportive.
I'm not sure where I am in life right now... I have been having panic attacks again... and sometimes they are very bad... and during thing which should be happy and exciting... not terrifying. I'd rather not post which things but some of you I'm sure can imagine.
I worry that I am possibly remembering something... I know that sounds lame but.... It feels like that sometimes... and not just to me... they are such violent and earth shaking episodes that I feel breathless and like my heart is going to jump out of my chest...
I appreciate the love that I know I have around me and being sent to me... thank you for that...
