Journal on depression/anxiety
Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
I got rid of my old journals, while it is possible I could learn something about myself, I was afraid that if I should die suddenly my children, husband, or parents might read them and it would definitely alter their perception in a negative way. Not worth the risk.
This is why I write everything in code. Code being my really crappy handwriting, which no one can decipher.
Yes, I see what you mean. Parts of my journal might shock some people. I guess I'll have to do my best not to die.
This reminds me, not to be morbid, but I have often thought that I should leave instructions for my husband about getting word to this forum if I should die suddenly. You guys mean a lot to me, I would hate to just disappear.
My journals had as much of the "good/fun" stuff as the other. I was a different person then.
oh gosh Paula, I would be devastated, don't die! (duh)
My handwriting literally changes by the minute. In the same sentence, you can get loopy, spiky, and block. In the same word, you can get both print and cursive. English teachers hated me.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
