Hey friends and friends I have yet to confirm. I was just sitting here thinking. Boy you should see all the smoke in my room! lol Just thought I say it before someone else said it. lol Anyways I was wondering how are you? I mean really. Truly.How are you? Im ok with my own life its just that my loved ones dont seem to realize that I am a person too. I feel as if Im not even considered when it comes to me having issues. So I wondered How are you feeling? How's everything with you? Please feel free to share good or bad. have a great day. dl

Hey J, it sounds like you over extending yourself. Be careful you dont want to get yourself sick. Its one thing to help people but its another to make yourself sick over it. I hope you and your granddog have a great time. Im so sorry about your behinder. Thank heavens its not the fronter. lol Take it easy friend. dl

Hi, Dl, I am doing okay. I have severe depression with panic attacks. Have had afew of the latter recently. Not fun. Family issues. Get things to come back around. I am torn as to whether to do something or not. It has to do with my family and I know I have sort of a responsibility so my decision is made.

I have some issues, but mostly I am good. I should not beat myself up so much, but that is about it. Why is there smoke in your room? Is this an issue where people are ignoring the fact that you are a person and smoking around you when they should not be?

Well long time no hear Ms Gerty! The smoke in my room was a joke. I meant that when I said I was thinking it was creating smoke out of my ears. Its supposed to be funny. When someone says "I was thinking." Usually someone will respond with "I knew I smelled smoke" Its a silly joke. Im sorry for confusing you. Im sorry to hear that you're beating yourself up. Is there anything you want to talk about? If so, feel free to send me a private message and I will send you my email or number. Otherwise please keep your head up friend! You're always such a breath of fresh air. Happy MyLotting dl

Got it, burning wood thinking. No, I just am not a housekeeper and I am met with some challenges due to no one caring, and having way too much stuff. I am not here as much as I should be. Needing to do more online earning and I am dividing my time. I just decided to put in a really good MyLot session last night.

Hi DL, nice and unique question you have here... ;) Well, I am good... Not too good.. For now, I am okay! But still there many things which could have been here and could have been better. For example, I am away from my sweetheart... That is the worst. I am working on Week ends too, that is a little bad LOL... Everything else is fine.. How are you, DL?

Hello Mr pearl. Im fine really and thanks for asking. Im sorry that you're away from your sweetie. That is not a good thing. Look at it this way at least you're working so your keeping busy and making money. So when you come together you can do something special. You seem to be such a calm soul. Even thru a typed response you seem soothing. That my friend is a great quality. Happy MyLotting dl

If you really want me to, I can be honest about this one, but it really isn't going to be pretty and flowery. You see, I've been having a tough time of it lately. I've been feeling very stressed because we have been having some financial difficulties. In addition to that, I just found out the other night that my sister-in-law is considering taking my nieces away from me and putting them in daycare and that thought absolutely sickens me.

Girl You never have to sugar coat ANYTHING when you're talking to me! GOOD or BAD! Im sorry you're having a bad time. I used to watch someone's children and one day they stopped coming. No explanation. NOTHING. Its hurtful and kind of insensitive. Did they explain why? Maybe its easier for them. Whatever the reason is, it still hurts. Please cheer up my friend. dl

hi diloveli, ;o) i guess it is seldom ask nowadays of how we are doing at all. It is usually ask by someone who really cares enough to know how we are doing. If anyone is'nt that concern, it is indeed great for you to come up with this kind of discussion. Now, how am i doing? really? I think I'm okay, though things are'nt doing well with me emotionally and financially still I'm alive and have all the hopes in life to go on and be happy. Though i don't know how to survive with all of these I still in a Greater Being called God that takes control of my life. Though sometimes it's really hard to believe yet you have that in your soul imprinted that their is this Supreme Being taking care of me. I don't know about you, if you ever felt like someone is bigger than you, bigger than this universe. I only have to look up at the heavens and see how it is wonderfully made I feel so small yet so grateful. With these, how am I doing? I am okay...no..I think I am doing great! ;o)

Hey girl! Honestly you seem to be doing okay. Except dont be so down on yourself. I am not one to preach but I do know that God only gives you what you can handle. We may think its alot but he knows we'll be okay. Financially you are not alone. Not that that makes it any better. I just wanted you to know that so you wont feel as thought no one will understand. Emotionally you seem to have a handle on things. I know what you mean though about people not really caring about fellow mans well being. When people say "how are you?" they expect you to say "good and you?" Well sometimes its not that easy. The fact that you are grateful sends the message that you really have it all together. I sure wish I had you here. I could you use a friend. At least you're here on MyLot. Its good to know that someone knows where Im coming from. hanks dl

hi dloveli outside of not really wanting to be in a place like this retirekment center and wanting to be back where I was before my son had lost his job and the world collapsed around out ears, I get along well enough here as long as I have my computer and monitor. My son has a job and sooner or later we will have enough money to get into an apartment again. so right now I have high hopes and I am happy as my son comes to viist me once every week.I tell myself every day b etter for me at my age to be here than on the street and homeless. we were evicted of course when we got behind on the rent. my son had been out of work so a year and a half before he got this job.

I don't feel ok. Well, I feel lonely most of the time. I wish I could have someone to be with me now. Though I am saying I am ok. I am not really ok. I said that I don't even care that canadian man of mine (at least that was what he told me. He told me to tell everyone that I have my canadian man that will come to visit me soon). We lived in different side of the world. I am in the east and he is at west part of world. He told me that he would come at the end of June. But, up till now he didn't show up. I didn't know what his problem is. I know it isn't easy to fly up here. It will cost him a lot of money. I miss him. At least that is what I feel now. Though I am saying that I don't care whether he comes or not. I actually still hold that little hope in my heart that he will finally show up.. And, I really want to start earning online. I wish to leave my current job. Have an excellent day!

I'm doing fine, today. I think with the economy today everyone is having it hard in their own way. I'm currently seeking part-time work since my father past away in march of this year. Before that I stayed at home to care for him since he was elderly & sickly. Now have to work to assist my husband & make ends meet at home since finding online work is really not working for me especially since I live in the Pacific Islands. Anyone know of any way to make income online that is legitimate & don't require money to start with? I don't mind paying but I have to try it out first to be sure it's for real. Other than that my family & I are doing okay. By the way, why is your room filled with smoke? I don't think you should be in a room with lots of smoke. Hope your okay & take care.

Hey Dreamkeeper! Glad to here married life is agreeing with you. Im sorry money isnt all it could be. Listen it is very hard to make a living online. You have to spend money to make money. Alot of the time people dont have the money to spend. If its extra money you're trying to make there are sites like MyLot, answersland, inbox dollars. I am just small potatoes. I dont join any sites where I have to be referred. That's just my personal thing. Inbox dollar pays you just for answering the emails they send you. If you take them up on any of their offers they give you a certain amount. If you refer anyone you get credit in your account. I have had a pay out. Good luck. Hope this helps

Me, well I'm into an adjustment period being in a new place with new terrain and getting along with new colleagues for a new job. But I'm fine... Maybe sooner I'll get use to it and later on get myself going.

First off let me congratulate you for your new place and job. It takes alot of guts to move to a new place, start a new job, and make new friends all at the same time. I wish you luck and if you need to vent or whatever, just hit me up. One thing I tell people who are starting off new is that watch what you tell to your coworkers. Not everyone has good intentions. Dont get too personal. People tend to use it against you. Dont overdue it. You are going to be a great asset to the company. I see so many people try to make friends and two months later they are looking for another job. They always start at the bottom. I tell my daughter when she starts a job not to get personal. You're there to work. Good luck. Remember you are the master of your own destiny. Happy MyLotting. dl

I'm surviving I guess. My marriage is falling apart and I'm depressed and exhausted but I'm surviving. I wish things could be better. I just kind of reached a point in my life where things just don't seem okay anymore. That's what started the problems in my marriage I guess. I decided it was time to grow up a little and make some changes. I started putting myself out there and making more friends and started losing weight and joined the gym. It made my husband insecure that I was doing it for the wrong reasons and he became jealous that I had friends to go out with. So after a bad few months things aren't looking so good. i've seen a side of him that really made me look differently at him and I don't know if we can go back. But we have 3 kids and I don't want to turn their world upside down.

It's funny how many people ask you 'how are you,' even though they truly don't want to know. They're just asking out of courtesy. Anyway, I'm doing well, truly. I might be having some 'time of the month' cramps today, but my life is going pretty well. College starts for me in a few weeks again, but I hope I'll be able to come on myLot as much as I did over the summer. My family life is going well and my love life is going well too. I'm happy. Now, how are you?
