I think that's so sweet! I mean...what both of you did.

I've been training for 2 months now, there's an increase of 10~15 lbs on some of the exercises on my training plan and I generally feel pretty good about it!

Visually, there hasn't been that much change and those 2 months just gave me 2 pounds, haha.

I thougt I was going to lose him. I was scared out of my mind. At that age I could NOT imagine life without him. I used to walk him by my pinky when he was little. I cleaned up after him. And my sister. Sister was born with a 'physcial blemish' my teacher says. I don't like to deal with them but I don't want them gone. I always said if something was gonna hurt them I'd take the hit. I'm not joking. I'd suck it up and take that bullet myself. Even if I don't know you I think life was meant to be lived. It's scary to think that but yeah that's the person I am.
Not the first time or last to help him though I'm afraid. A bit after chinese new year a kid went to my house and got in a fight with him. Hit him in the face with a plastic chair but before that were cussing each other out. I didn't think he'd hit him but when he did I went over and grabbed the kid. Brother walked off and I had to hold on the the kid cause he was going to get him from behind. My sister was actually right next to them and froze in fear. My fear was someone mostly my brother getting hurt. You'd think it's easy to hold back a 13 year old. No not an angery asian kid. Nope and his mom did not do jack about that. My brother had his glasses bent and a big red spot under his eye. God dern! The kds these days think they're tough and try you so freaking bad. Never in my life. No fight at my school can compare to that fight. Blood is Blood

That is so sweet and awesome that you saved your brother when you did and took up the courage to do that.

For some reason I am incredibly lonesome right now. That kind of feeling where your dejected and alone. Even if my family is downstairs I feel somehow alienated from them through no fault of their own or anyone else's. It's that kind of hard to describe feeling where you just want someone, anyone, to talk to and be reassured. Where you just really really want a hug.

I can't wait for this weekend when I am sleeping over at Boyfriends again :/ I don't know why I feel so goddamn lonesome right now.

Feeling really kind of sore don't know actually why though I haven't really been doing that much labor intensive work at my job, but man it aches all over oh well though it should go away soon. I guess lifting a paint brush to paint a 40 yard bin can get a toll on you lol.

It wasn't easy. Like I said the water was hard to move through. I was tired too from trying to get to him but I was scared out of my mind and those adults were not going to help so I just pushed myself really hard and kind of slipped a few times maybe cause I had to stand on my toes at the 4ft to grab him out and try to lift him on the edge of the pool where he can sit and breather properly. Honestly I didn't really think of how much it meant to him. Now I know. I saved his life. And he probably think he owes me. I rather have him life long enough to be a doctor. He doesn't have to owe me nothing but live. I've done more things for him and my sister.
Takes a lot to hold your sister's hand in the emergency room and not cry so she knows it's nothing to be scared of. Dad had to leave the room, my Mom cried. I held her hand and squeed it as hard as she did for me. My family is no ordinary family. Outside it seems like it. Inside is a whole other story. I could write a freaking book! We all learn about things we never thought was possible. Well now people know some more things about me.

Tranfer college. Congrats. Luck to you.

Did You Know: There is research to suggest that the way you feel at a particular point in time is the result of the volatile and ever changing balance of vitamins, oxygen, sugars, and blood flow in your brain. Kind of gives interesting insight on free will. Are you feeling a particular emotion because of events that occur, or is it at that particular moment, the cauldron of chemicals and processes in your skull is making you feel what you feel...

er... that was kind of an oddly clinical response to a person in pain who seemed to be reaching out for reassurance and connection... but I think I get your point.

@ Lithium Flower -- Sorry to hear you're feeling so low. Maybe it would be a good idea to go spend some time with a family member, curl up with them or just be near them. It may make you feel better since loneliness can sometimes be self-perpetuating -- we feel alienated so we avoid being around people, then not being around people makes us feel more alienated, which makes us avoid people... rinse, repeat.

Regarding A.F.S.'s idea... sometimes there are chemical or hormonal changes that can dramatically affect our mood (which can be quite unsettling), or merely tip us a little in one direction that gets amplified by other circumstantial things. Our bodies and brain are quite complex and when we suddenly feel lost or lonely seemingly without cause, it can sometimes be a sign that we should take a moment to see what's going on with our physical self. For example, periods of illness, pain, or stress can plummet people into a depression triggered largely by the chemical change in the body & brain. So while we may mentally be a little edgy from the experience, that gets significantly magnified by the physical change.

None of that means that the feelings or cause aren't real. Just that sometimes it can be of some comfort to know that the feeling will pass shortly when our bodies rebound, and that spending some extra effort to take care of ourselves may help. I find that it can be easier to "fix" the physical issues (which can help us feel better quicker), whereas the larger emotional or life issues that can contribute to those feelings take longer to resolve. Or sometimes we're in a situation that can't be changed, at least not anytime soon, so taking care of our body and brain is our only approach. (I remember you mentioning your frustration at being stuck and not moving forward as you'd like right now. That can certainly stir up the feelings you mentioned.)

Don't know if any of that rambling helps. I'm kinda rambly today.

Golly willikers Batman!
Thanks everyone for your internet lovin's I appreciate it.
And don't worry I didn't take a clinical response to my strange emotional state badly xD It was rather interesting actually.

I am the kinda person who, when in a mood, needs to kinda sort things out on their own. 'Walk it off' if you will. I just snuggle up and listen to Nero Wolfe for a bit and I'll chill out.

So here's a funny story for everyone:
The other day Boyfriend and I where at the mall (with the LEGO STORE!) and he, for some reason, enjoys patting my tummy. So while we where in line at the food court he absentmindedly started to pat my tummy above my sweater. I told him;

"Dude when you do that it looks like I am preggers or something"

There was a brief pause before he knelt down and put his ear to my stomach...just as the cashier came back with our order.


GOOD TIMES

Sorry about that... Something that helps me when I am lonely/ feeling distant from people is to try and talk with them about the way you are feeling. Most likely ( at least in my experience) the person/people in question have keyed in on a problem in the relationship and are more than happy to discuss it. But it can be hard to break the silence.
