The rules: once you have been tagged, you have to write a journal entry with 10 random facts or habits about yourself. At the end, you choose 10 new people to be tagged. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "You've been tagged!" on their profile and tell them to read your latest journal entry! (anyone who read this... you're TAGGED! now get going!)

10)  While I hate what I have gone through, and would trade it back if I had the chance, I really enjoy learning how important friends and family are to just everyday life...

 9)  You MUST have a good support system to get through things like this, that is why I LOVE CafeMom and all my moms on here....  I seriously couldn't get through this all without you guys, as I truely am very private and can't usually talk about this with too many others....  No one understands, and I feel that I can say ANYTHING to you guys, because if you don't like it, or I don't like the response, I can just delete the person, or just not care....  It is weird, but I feel I can say anything on here since you guys don't know me.  But when I know people I know will look at this, I almost feel embarassed...  It is strange...  But I love to look at everything and talk to everyone...  I am very quiet but once you get to know me, you can't get me to shut up...

 8)  I love to read, ANYTHING.... I love to read posts, journals, books, magazines.  I love Dean Koontz books, all are great, Stephen King, I sometimes like to read romance books, I feel silly and embarassed sometimes, but sometimes I just need to read something like that....

 7)  I love ice cream and chocolate, and I LOVE Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies...  I was a Girl Scout for 10 years and got a 10-year pin.  :)

 6)  I love to help people...  Even when I don't know them, I always try to help everyone that I can...  Even with stupid things like finding a phone number, if I happen to know it, I WILL interrupt and try to help...  I feel that there is no point in me staying quiet, knowing you are looking for something, and let you look for 10 minutes, when I could have opened my mouth and told you the number to begin with....  (And I hate when people make fun of me for doing that...  A manager used to do that, and now she is no longer a manager...  evil grin and laugh...  heehee....  I cut HER down to size....  (She was a bad manager anyway and just didn't like me because I am younger, got the boss to compliment me all the time on how GREAT of a job I was doing and he would brag all the time, and it just PISSED her off and she never liked me, she would also make fun of me, ignore me, and not help get the job done, but would yell at me when it wasn't done, EVEN though I asked her to help me....))

 5)  I bit my lip, chew the inside of my cheeks, bite the skin right beside your nail, and pick at my steering wheel cover when I am anxious, nervous, or upset.  (I have a cool steering wheel cover, with gel grips at three points of the cover, the rest is leather(fake) but I have picked at it so much that two of the leather sides are gone and it is just the rubber cover, but the gel is still barely holding on....)

 4)  I love to hear of children, see children, but lately it just upsets me so much when others announce they are pregnant...  I am filled with so much jealousy, and then if they happen to lose the child(ren), I am filled with so much remorse, thinking I somehow caused it....  I then feel horrible because I feel that somehow, in someway, I could have changed my attitude and this wouldn't have happened to them...

 3)  I used to be a happy, carefree, always cheerful person....  But I don't know how to feel that way again, I feel forever changed and don't like it....  I seem to be filled with dread of what could happen and am very sad and mellowed out more and more often....

 2)  I am in school to get my Computer Information Systems degree and LOVE that I am one of only a few girls getting this degree...  I am excited to get into a career that not many women are in and prove that I can do it just as well as any man... :)

 1)  I hope everyone still likes me after hearing all this....  I always have to make people like me, I hate when people don't like me....  Though it sucks lately making friends, because I just feel down and while there is a good reason, I don't feel that they really know me, or they know who I am now and not what I used to be, a happy person.... 

I don't know....  I hope you learned something and I hope to still get to know all of you....

To you all:  Thank you for being my friend, putting up with my moping around, sadness, sad things....  I love you all and thank you for being my friend...  :)

I agree with Lyndelou, don't let anyone allow you to feel any different about yourself.  Angelmama, you and I have briefly spoken about our losses and I can tell you that the feelings that you are experiencing right now are perfectly normal.  However, the key is not letting the negative feelings bring you down in your everyday routines so that you become too depressed or possibly cause other health problems.  The best thing you can do for yourself is to talk, share, cry, vent, scream, and allow yourself to have happy times.  Unfortunately, when we women experience something like this we do have a tendency to be negative, dread everything, blame ourselves, and tell ourselves that we don't deserve to be happy.  That's wrong, we DO deserve to be happy.  Keep your head up sweetie and you can message me anytime, i am always there.  I have been through counseling myself and have been told all of this by a professional and have learned within time that she was right.  GOD has the ultimate plan (s) for us, GOD makes the ultimate decision but WE DO HAVE DAILY CHOICES and that is something that is a hard lesson learned sometimes.  Sweetie, I feel your pain, I hear your pain, but your pain is normal and from what I have heard from you, what you are doing is healthy.  Take care and remember, we do care and there are friends who will be there no matter what.

Ten things about me:

10.  I am addcited to coffee- day and night, I love coffee

9.   I get a little cranky when things don't go my way

8.  I too am very spoiled- I generally get what I want, it may take a while but I get it.

7.  I do not eat or drink healthy like I would like to.

6.  I am not able to have children; I do have an angel baby though.

5.  I can't save money- I love clothes, shoes, and girly stuff too much so it doesn't make it to the savings account. LOL

4.  I too dont care for the word Hate but I do use it.

3.  I do not like fake people or liars.

2.  I am very impatient

1.  I have a tendancy to be lazy.
