    What where your high's and low's from this year? And what would you like to do in 2011?

    High point for me, was my Niece being born and spending more time with my sister.

    Low point: My friend being Killed in Afgan in February still a hard thing too think about.

    2011 Start from the beggining and put the past in the past, tomorrow will become whatever decision you make.

    High points: Getting into college when I really didn't expect to and actually enjoying it. Starting meds.. was a turning point for me and I cope a lot better than I thought possible now. Meeting my boyfriend for the first time although we're not together anymore.

    Low points: Mum coming into some money and being drunk 24/7 for quite a while, was a nightmare. Realizing that I can't function in a relationship.

    High Point - Winning a Union case and saving the members job. We were all convinced that he'd be sacked but I put up a good enough argument to save him. Six months later and people are still congratulating me over it. (It was a very difficult case)
    Low Point - Another depressive period, 3 months this time which is better than the last one which lasted 6 months. Coming out of it now though, thank goodness.

    Good: Fell in love with Elizabeth; found cure for bipolar disorder (with help from Elizabeth)

    Bad: Found out that it would take an extra year to graduate from the U of T on account of their restrictive policies, meaning I need to return to Edmonton

    High Point: Started new medication - continued therapy - hoping for hope.

    Low Points: Still unable to smile naturally. Still unattracted to everyone. Attempted 7 more times. Unable to get a job. Still unable to leave the house. 3 family members passed away. I'll leave it at that, I guess...

    2011: I want to feel normal. please.

    This whole year has been a low point. An uneventful, empty period of time, that I can't really remember, where I have stagnated. I feel its been a complete waste of time, and I am really stuck in this rut.

    The only positive thing I can say is that I've started taking meds. Dont know how it will turn out. I need to get back to the world in 2011.

    Highs Getting into college and making better friends than ever.
    Got a better councillor. My Chemical Romance's new album. Getting back in touch with my brother and his boyfriend and getting to know them again, even if it was for a bad reason really. I met a couple of really great friends. Am currently quitting cutting.

    Lows My brother going missing for two weeks again, I thought he'd actually done it this time. My relationship with my mum has gone to shit. Finding out that my 'friends' are kind of using me. Started smoking. One of my brothers and I arguing alot through no fault of my own. Realising how little my parents notice or listen to me ever. Finding out that I have a chromosome deletion and my mother constantly going on about it and ignoring me. My dad's friend being diagnosed with diabetes and brain cancer on the same day.

    2011 Try and work on relationship with parents. Be more confident and be myself - people seem to like it as much as I do. :mhmm: Stay in contact with my bro and his bf. Meet up with our other brother and be the one to call him for a chat or we'll lose contact.

    Family illness, a low point.

    Realising that time was precious due to the possibility of losing a loved one was, although it did not seem like it, a high point.

    I suppose the main thing is the in-between as my life's highs and lows are generally short - I mean the moment of realising is quick - how you deal with it means walking a straight path rather than the hills or valleys.

    Sometimes its like a tightrope - but often the fear of falling brings more pain than it would if you fell most of the time!

    Anyhow, onwards and upwards eh?

    High points: The time i spent with family and friends. The last book in the scott pilgrim series, actually losing weight and eating better, the moments when i felt hope.
    Low Points: Figuring out how trusting i am and realizing people take advantage of that. Scott pilgrim movie..it sucked :( life in general especially my work and my lack of a social life or lack of interesting life, i truly live a boring life. Being alone.
