I Give Up.

I’m done.

    1. I should have given up on that long ago. No, I was referring to my general state of mind. Apparently, the unemployment benefits I get are enough money that it disqualifies me from receiving Medcaid benefits – granted, I’d rather be working and providing signing up for an employer sponsored plan, but this is not going to work for me…
      …I’m tired, full of fear and anxious about the future.

      1. Fear is natural and more often then not, healthy…and once we push past it something new gets discovered, or rediscovered, and growth is usually the end result. But in the moment when fewr has a tight hold, it’s hard to believe that or even imagine the day will come. I get it. I really do! So… how are you today? Sending love. ❤

      2. I’m a lot better today. I’ve been following up on a few things that, although not ideal, are going to help in a major way. I’ve also had a couple of interviews in the past couple of days…so, I’m hopeful.

  1. What’s up, buddy? I’ve been somewhat absent due to a hectic life recently, but those are words I don’t equate with you. Don’t quit. Whatever it is, you are not alone. Share here what’s bothering you but don’t quit. Quit something because it sucks and it’s not right for you (like drinking, pursuing the wrong relationship, staying in a job that demotivates you – that sort of thing), but don’t be “done” except those instances – you see what I mean, right? You’re an inspiration to so many here, so please share instead and let’s figure this thing out. Anna x

    1. I’m running on fear at the moment. I don’t have medical insurance and my unemployment benefits are high enough that they disqualify me for government medical insurance. I need insulin to live. So, I have two weeks left and after that, I’m screwed.

      1. That sounds like a very difficult situation to be in. Is there no assistance available? Sorry if I’m asking stupid questions, I don’t know how it works and I’m so sorry you’re going through this. It seems outrageous that you could be denied medication you need. Are there any charities or other associations etc around that are able to help in some way? Thinking of you and hate to hear you’re having to feel this way. ❤️

  2. “I’m done.” That’s exactly where I was and exactly the moment that everything changed for me. On the day I knew I was being let go from my job, I was a single parent, two kids, and trying to fight a drinking problem. Once I let go of any hope that I could find my way out of this, once I realized I had no answers, grace flowed gently across the borders of my mind. I had to hand it all over to someone else. To God, to the Universe, to anyone who was willing to show themselves. Unbelievably, that was the beginning of a whole new way of life, where I came to rely on a power not of myself. Things changed dramatically for me, and have not stopped. I didn’t stop drinking right away, but I didn’t quit trying. All of this is available to you, if you want it. You can choose love over fear.
