Latest Entry: One of the Seven Worst Days of My Life
I became involved in a relationship that I felt to be leading me backwards. First mistake. To keep this relationship going, I paid too high of a price that I am just now realizing. I dropped out of college, left my friends, family and everything that was familiar to me expecting this relationship to be worth leaving all of this behind. To put things into perspective, this was a very bad decision. My mate lied to me about all that she was, all the way down to her age and health status. Once my eyes had open to the facts of the situation, I could not forgive her easily. I still did care about her, but my emotions and mindset never recovered no matter how bad I tried to push those feelings aside. Second mistake, denying my own feelings and perseption. The relationship well down hill to the point that we got sick of putting up with each other. We had be living together (third mistake; giving up my power to her) in her house and she felt it was time for us to end. Behind my back, she made some plans to enact them. So, a couple of days ago, I got out of the shower only to see her son come up to me, introduce himself and tell me it was time to go and he would be helping me get my stuff out of her house immediatly. I was shocked but I should have seen this coming and, more importantly, I should have been prepared for it. In fact, I was as unprepared as one could have been in that situation. I was frantic. We packed up all my stuff and they dropped me off at a storege unit and that was that. I was homeless. On top of that, I had been involved in an accident a week earlier that left me unable to work until further notice. So I was as mentally unprepared as I was financially unprepared. I was totally lost for direction being in an unfamiliar location, without much money, without a good support system and now without a good outlook on my future. I panicked. I could hardly hold my head up and the tears were becoming harder and harder to hold back. I got on my mountian bike and drove to my work to try and charge my cell phone so I could at least try and call my parents or someone willing to take me in. When I got to work, my fellow co-workers were asking me how my situation was coming. They more meant about the accident since I had not been at work to give them the story. When I hung my head and said, "I don't know what to do" they exclaimed why it was that I looked so shabby. I let out the story of my day and luckily for me my boss was standing near and over heard our conversation. He took the liberty of getting involved and asked if I knew where I was going from here. I told him that I was completely broken down and didn't know where I would go to sleep on that night. He pulled me into his office and offered me a place to stay until I got things figured out. I was so touched and overwhelmed by his generousety that I almost broke down right in his office. And that is where I sit right now typing this story. I still have to get on the ball and get an apartment but my boss and his family have been so nice to me that I will be in debted to them for all their support. Not only support by supplying me a bed and somewhere to come home to, but for listening to me on how I feel and suggesting solutions and just being nice to me. I still don't know how or when this situation will be resolved, but after reading some of Real Life and talking with family and friends, I have better sense of confidence that as long as I stay proactive and work towards putting my life back together I will succeed. I beleive in myself that good things will come of this difficult time in my life and I am already seeing those things happen right before my eyes. The Divine Entity works in mysterious ways. I believe. Please leave your thoughts if you wish. I would love to talk more about my and your situation and if you need, I would be more than happy to give you pointers on how I have been able to get my feet back under me and work towards gaining my own power back to take control of my life. Thank you for reading and good luck to all of you who are in rough seas.

Hi All, well I'm not really sure what I'm doing on here. I know I am sad and lost and feel very alone even though  I am surrounded by a loving family.
So maybe I do know what I 'm doing on here;  I am looking for solutions. I don't want to carry on feeling this way. Hating myself and the life I have right now. So wish me luck I think I may need it.

Latest Entry: The Locator
I just watched your show about being reunited with a family member -

I love shows like this - as I experienced this myself.  I am 54 years old, and as long as I could remember I knew my dad had a son from a previous marriage, but had never met him.  in 1984 my dad passed away, and had not seen his son since he was about 5 years old. (He, my brother, is now 62 years old)  In 2001 or 2002 my mom tried to take a loan out on her home to remodel - it was denied because we could not get that one "heir's" signature on the loan papers.  I had tried several times prior to my dads death to locate him but with no luck, had tried several times since his death still with no luck.  Then one Sunday my mom and I were talking about it, and she mentioned that the last time they had heard from his Mother, was when she was getting remarrried, and wanted my dad to sign papers giving her new husband the right to adopt, which my dad refused.  The next day I called the Office of Vital Statistics in the state he was born in, got his NEW name, went to "Anywho.com" and found him.  We have had a WONDERFUL relationship since that day.  He had been an only child for years, Now he has 3 sisters and 3 brothers.  He is very much like our Dad. and he and I and my sister espically are VERY close, the others he gets along with when they are around each other.

I agree with TROY when he says begin your search NOW - look at all the years we lost, and he never got to meet dad.  He also opted not to tell his mother, who has now passed away.  She was very ill when we found each other, and he did not want to upset her. 

If you have ever thought about looking for someone I say GO FOR IT

Latest Entry: unrealistic parenting
I usually dvr the dr. phil show and i just watched the 9/18 show about the mom that was wrongly accused of child abuse because she left her child in the car at a wal-mart for a couple of minutes while she and her other daughters dropped money in the salvation army kettle.  i got so upset that she would be arrested for that.  obviously she is raising her kids with morals if they raised money and wanted to donate it to those less fortunate.  what would've been a nice family-bonding selfless gesture turned into a terrifying and emotional fiasco.  it drove me crazy to hear the lady in the audience and the one on the web cam talk about how they would never put their kids in harm's way like that and that she should be arrested.  how she gave up her parental rights the moment she left the car is so ridiculous.  they are so unrealistic-dr phil said , jokingly, that maybe we should follow the mother around to see if she really is that "responsible" to take her sleeping baby out of the car just to mail a letter right outside the car at the curb.she's a fairly new mom, just wait til she has lots of stuff going on with other kids and she has to multitask. maybe she'll think differently.

Latest Entry: Entry Title
YESTERDAY, DR PHIL DID ALMOST AN ENTIRE SHOW ON CASEY/CAYLEE/GEORGE/CINDY, ANTHONY.  THE FLORIDA CASE, GARNERING SO MUCH ATTENTION.  ALTHOUGH I'VE LEARNED A LOT MORE FROM NANCY GRACE, I LEARNED MORE ABOUT CASEY'S INSTABILITY.
I DON'T THINK THIS IS GOING TO GO AWAY SOON, AT LEAST NOT SO LONG AS WE EXPECT CASEY TO TAKE THE REIGNS, AND FIX IT.

HER DAYS WERE NUMBERED WHEN WHATEVER SHE DID WITH HER BABY GIRL, OR DID NOT DO, BUT COULD HAVE HELPED CAYLEE, BUT DID NOT. 
TODAY, SOME 600 PAGES WERE RELEASED TO THE MEDIA VIA THE POLICE INVESTIGATION.  THIS ISN'T GOING AWAY.  LORD HELP THE ANTHONY FAMILY TO COME TOGETHER, AND ONCE AND FOR ALL CONVINCE CASEY THAT EITHER WAY, SHE'S GOING "down."

This story isn't about Casey.  It's about Caylee.  It's becoming a media circus, because of Casey, whether she chooses to believe this or not.  Lying is still a sin in my book, and now, she's got her parents, and possibly her brother doing the same as she has been....lying.

Caylee is out there.  Dead or alive, she's still out there.   Hopefully, these peeps that know Casey, and have had prior contact with her, will keep coming forward.

Somehow, I have to believe that sooner than later, the Authorities will arrest Casey Anthony for good.  I only wish there was a rule in instances like this that made it impossible tor Casey to pass, on the Poly.

If we could make her take the Poly, or we could administer good old torture treatment, maybe then, she'd spill those horrid nasty guts of hers.

Latest Entry: THE KIDNEY BROTHERS
For the younger brother DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR KIDNEY!  The older brother is disrespecting you, your family, and himself.  You have your whole life ahead of you.  No one knows what is going to happen to YOU when you are 40, 50, 60 or 70.  Your brother is going to continue to use drugs, smoke, and lie to everyone.  Giving your kidney to him will just be in vain. It may sound cold but he has made his bed let him lie in it!

My sister was murdered when I was your age so I am familiar with death and losing a sibling.  I have had several operations, removing several organs in my 40's due to disease.  You can never get your health back.  Now in my fifties as the quote goes the older the wiser.

SIncerely,
Mimi
