I need help.

To make a long story short... I just got out of a 3 year abusive relationship, which left me the single mother of one wonderful little boy, Aidan (he'll be 2 in November). Paying for diapers, groceries, etc. wasn't a problem while I was in the relationship, but for my own health I had to get out of that.

Now, my problem is, I'm working, but I can't afford diapers, food, warm clothes, or anything I need for my son. I can barely afford the gas money to get to work, on top of babysitting $ and food.

I guess what I'm asking, and I'm sorry if I'm coming off sounding like a beggar... but if there is anyone out there who is better off than I am, if you could help me out in any way, I'd be VERY thankful. I don't have much support from my family and I really don't have any friends who could help me out, most of them are younger than I am anyways.

This is my last resort. If you could please help me, my email is plsmachic@excite.com, or I could email you if you comment with your email address.

Again, I'm sorry for asking, I just don't know where else to turn.

The holidays and winter are near
With the holidays and winter almost here, we (deita and I) wanted to start a coat drive, canned food drive, and a toy drive. Everything collected will be distributed to those less fortunate. There are no limitations, other then the toys have to be new. The collections end by Christmas so if you would like to participate, please reply to this post and we can figure out how you can get the items to us.

2003-11-17 17:24:00; Introduction
I notice that people copy movies all the time, the clothing style, speech, slang, bad habits, but out of all the movies I've seen, there's only one that I found worthy of such a compliment, yet it has failed to make any impact. "Pay It Forward" introduced a great idea to change this world, and although it may sound silly to our fashion and violence oriented race, every little bit helps. Let's try it, how bad could it be to do something selfless for someone? For those of you who haven't seen the film, here's how it works:
You help three people, and ask them not to pay you back with a favor, but rather pay it forward, by doing something nice for three other people, and ask those people to ask for "payments forward". Join pay_it_forward, share your thoughts and ideas, post about what you have done, or what someone has done for you. Post if you need help with something, and post if you can help someone. Let's set this thing in motion!

Nice community, I look forward to enjoying it!

Advice needed
Anyone have an advice on how to react if the girl they are seeing tells them she has herpes? (and is in meds for it) and that she has had a rather active sexual history?

I was just browsing through LJ and I came across this community... It looked interesting and I need some advice, so here I am...
First off, I've always felt as though my job was to make everyone laugh. I was the class clown in high school - I would risk detention, a visit to the office, or even in-school suspension to get my classmates to laugh.
Now, during this past year, I became very fond of my English teacher. She helped me through tons of stuff, including a crazy girl who wanted to kill both her and I. Anyway, she turned out to be the best thing that happened to me. She did everything she could to help me, never letting me settle for less than my best. It was odd though, because just about everyone but me hated her. Only the guys liked her b/c they all thought she was gorgeous.
The second to last day of school, when I was in English, someone told me to do something. I honestly don't remember what it was, but in my desperate attempt to make everyone laugh, I did it and my teacher got very upset with me. She yelled at me and sent me to the office where I was yelled at for another 45 minutes.
I had been planning to stay after on the last day and tell my teacher everything she did for me and how she has inproved my life. But, instead, I found that she was mad at me and wouldn't speak to me. It was as if someone ripped my heart from my chest and danced on it.
I love classical/instrumental music, but I find that it makes me sad and when I get sad I think of how I blew it completely. Now, everything I do, say, hear, or see reminds me of my teacher. My boyfriend (with his excellent advice) says it'll pass, but I don't know that it will.
My question is: What can I do to get my mind off of this? There must be something I can do to get over this and get on with life.
Of course, any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'd like to help you out with your problem because it sounds like you have a serious issue that upsets you very much (and I have a friend with a similar problem), but right now I was hoping you could give me some insight in my problem...

I'm going to be junior in college next semester, and moving up to the main campus (dorm-life) for the first time. I've been dating this guy for over a year and have been having issues about making time to see each other (he lives 20 minutes away from home, over an hour from school). I'm very apprehensive as it is about being away from him, he's also my best friend and I love him dearly. but he really wants to be on radio and he just told me tonight that he will be taking an internet radio job for most week nights (I forget how many exactly) from 7-11. He also has a day job, and I have a day job. I will be seeing him 2 nights a week, if I am lucky... I hope you understand what this means for me and the relationship because I'm too comflicted and upset to explain anything in too much detail...

I want to be happy for him but I just feel totally slighted... I had the whole summer planned and now it's going to be a lonely and depressed summer for me. When he told me i burst into tears, I couldn't help it. I love him so much that I want to be with him as much as I can, especially since I will be missing him desperately next year. What am I supposed to do? what am I supposed to feel? any insight would help...

Sobbing softly
I'd really rather be helping someone that asking for help but here goes.

Some people walk around always depressed. Others walk around happy. No one really realizes just how crappy I feel. I'm just "quiet" or "mellow". I guess I hide it well.

I'm 22 years old, married and no kids. My father died when I was 7. My mother met someone new after that, and he helped raise me from age 9 until he died when I was 19. I really didn't have time to mourn either. You know, life goes on. work doesn't stop. School doesn't stop. I find myself thinking about them lots, and missing them very much too.

Here's the problem. When anyone acts supportive, has sympathy, or shows concern (strangers and my husband mostly), I start crying like a baby and can't seem to stop. It's a hard to touch wound that just won't heal. I realize it's alot to deal with, but I'm ready to deal. I have dreams where they are not dead anymore, or where they come back to life. Could I STILL be in denial after 15 years? How do I deal with this and become strong again, instead of faking strength all the time? No one even thinks anything is wrong. Somethimes I feel just ready to crumble. I feel it's more that I can handle. Please help.

Ok so I decided to start a community, but I'm just learning... relax I'm a fast learner.

So what is Dear Peer? Think of it as Dear Abby except for anyone can ask and or give advice. It'll be slow here for awhile... That'll give me a chance to learn what I need to know. In the mean time, If you're having a delema... by all means, post away.
