    This thread should be mandatory reading for young adults and recommended reading for all adults.

    True life and compassion from all perspectives.

    I’m really glad it got a foothold. I make a lot of silly, light threads so making this one made me feel particularly vulnerable. I really expected it to drop off after a day or so. I don’t comment in this thread much but I come back and read it often. It helps remind me how human we all are.

    I worried it would turn into a contest of who has it the worst, and I’m so glad it hasn’t. I hope anyone feels ‘qualified’ to post here. We all go through our own *kitten*. We all deserve to unload.

    This is a hard time of year for me. For no particular reason and for hundreds. I’ve done it medicated and without, but nothing helps as much as feeling like I have people who get it. I’ve been on mfp for years as the goof-off but this year is when I finally felt like i could bare all without fear.

    I probably come across as unapproachable and difficult to get to know beyond the jokes, so I’m thankful there are people who push past that undeterred. It honestly has been transformative for me in this last month or so. I’m bad at expressing it but y’all have been my people in ways you’ll never even know.

    i for one - am very glad you're back <3

    Feeling sorry for myself today, not feeling too well lately and now being tested for bowel disease. I should not google because it does no good for my anxiety. Also feeling bad because I know people are a lot worse off. Trying to stay positive.

    So sorry. Hope it’s nothing 🤗

    please don't start comparing yourself to other people's situations, even if you deem theirs *worse* than yours. there is no such thing as that! your issues are just as valid. i hope they find a solution for you soon <3

    Thank you both ❤️

    @MiNinaLisa
    I'm so very sorry. :( Dementia(and Alzheimer's) is absolutely awful and steals away the person little by little and everyone is left feeling helpless because there is nothing you can do. I'm glad this lady friend is in his life and that she has support as well.
    {{Hugs to you}}

    It's hard to imagine what it's like being a caregiver - even if only on occasion - when you yourself are dealing with a major health issue. How bittersweet it must have been to get the pictures and to have seen your step-father.

    No matter where he's at mentally and physically right now, perhaps one additional memory to hold on to is the fact that he still knows how important your mother's pictures were to you?

    If you don't mind, I'm sending prayers up and across your way @MiNinaLisa
