I'm not going to be blogging anymore. Not here anyway.

Thank you very much to those of you that have been supporting me and encouraging me for the last couple of years. It has meant a lot to me. More than you can ever know.

I just can't be cheerful and positive. It isn't who I am.

I was asked by a fellow Sparker today what is really bothering me. Like I have a hangnail or am just grumpy or something. I'm not that shallow. If I say that my life is a mess, it isn't because my hair didn't turn out today.

Take care Sparkly Peeps!!!

    I have looked forward to your blogs. We never travel in a straight line and usually learn more from when we wander off course than when we hit our mark. Fight the good battle, rage against the machine, discover passions, and please come back if you ever decide you are ready.

    I am nowhere near consistent, moving falteringly--failing more days that succeeding, and I would love quality company on my journey. While I wish you all the best, I'm selfish enough to want to remain a witness to your successes and sincerely hope that you reconsider as I want to cheer you on. You are one of the things that keeps me returning to Spark and I thank you for what you have chosen to share.

    If you don't blog here I would encourage you to keep a journal and not give up on yourself.

    You don't have to be positive and cheerful to be a member of Spark, but you might become positive and cheerful as a result.

    Who gives a flying F%CK what other people think? Stop caring about what "they" think (something you can't control anyway) and just care about YOU.

    Take care sweetie!!

    I'm sorry that you feel you can blog honestly here Deanna. You shouldn't feel like you have to put on a "happy face" to blog. This journey and life in general has many ups an downs. As long as you know that you aren't alone, and that you will always have friends here if you want support. Friends that would never expect you to pretend to be happy when you're not.

    I'm sorry to hear this and would also like to follow you if you open a blog somewhere else.. I think that most people don't really know what it's like to deal with serious mental illness unless they've gone through it themselves. I hope that you don't let the ignorance of a few ruin something that was potentially beneficial for you... I know blogging helps me, and I hope you will continue on with it, even if it's not on Spark, and even if no one ever sees it. I'll always be here to support you if you come back.

    Wish you nothing but the best and please know that the door is open if you want to come back.

    No one expects little miss sunshine. We know you're struggling with things.

    If you decide to blog elsewhere, I'd love to follow you there. I know exactly what you mean. People grouch to me all the time because they think I should be "satisfied" with my weight, even though I'm barely on the line of overweight (and still considered overweight on a doctor's scale). If I'm not positive in every single blog, I get reamed. I now drop anyone who does that, and I'm considering going private. Frankly, I have a bajillion friends that I don't know and don't care about at all. There are maybe 30 people here that I actually care about and I've considered cutting everyone else out. I'm sorry people have been acting stupid towards you.

    Wishing you the best, I've always hated that about SP - it's LA LA Land, not the real world.
