"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

I'm alive even if I don't really want to be. I guess I'm trying to convince myself this is a positive.

Bradley, I believe it will get better for you. I've been suicidal like you as well, and it has gotten better for me. You just have a lot of doubt and negative attitudes toward yourself right now, which is totally understandable.

I'm cautiously positive about college. Classes are pretty good, especially judo. If I'm still doing alright in a month then I'll consider it a real real positive.

Over the last several weeks I have been talking about various strange problems within the family with a member of the local Friends Meeting. She and I relate because our families are very similiarly dysfunctional. One of her family jobs seems to be holding everyone together during the winter months and this year is worse than ever. I've been dreading her leaving because between now and early March she'll be traveling to Alaska, Europe, back to Alaska, home for a week, than on the road to pennsylvania, back home for a week, back to Alaska, down to Mexico, back to Alaska, and finally home for the spring and summer. At this point God only knows where I might be come Spring. She has given me her itenary and contact info for these various places and said lets keep in touch. It feels good to have made a connection that appears strong enough to stretch across the Atlantic and back around America a few dozen odd times.

I have a slightly different perspective on being alive. After all the excitement of Hurricane Frances, and with Hurricane Ivan blowing in the Carrribean it feels very good to be in safe, reasonably dry ground. More later on the strangeness of the past couple of days, hope all are doing okay.

Life has kind of sucked for the past few weeks but I've kept my ability to laugh. I hope this is a good thing.

I had a wonderful session with my specalist but the problem is that it resulted in me getting in even deeper with my feelings. So it was kind of a mixed blessing - if you know what I mean.

People you don't need me around to have conversations and talk about healing- I hope. It has been a very busy week at my end. My family and I are talking about healing at a very deep level. This has been the most unbelieveable period of my life. We are having discussions about all kinds of issues from our past. Believe me much more detail is coming, but for the first time in a very long time I feel like a human being. It doesn't get much more positive than this. :cookiemonster:

Just came from a meeting with my lawyer. During that time she called my ex to see if he would come in and negotiate a deal. He said Yes. I almost hit the floor! It's a start anyway. Maybe just a stall tactic on his part, or maybe he was just so caught off guard he did not know what else to say. Either way I am just happy to have the ball rolling. Hopefully this will keep it out of court.

And the sun is shining!

I feel like I have the "empty nest" syndrome. All the kids are in college, we never hear from them any more.

My positive is that I took 5 minutes and wrote in my journal for the first time in two weeks. It is an easy habit to get out of, but sure helps a lot.

Take care,

Mel
