    One night I had a dream...
    I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
    Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
    For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
    One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
    When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
    I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
    There was only one set of footprints.
    I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life
    This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
    "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
    You would walk with me all the way;
    But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,
    There is only one set of footprints.
    I don't understand why in times when I
    needed you the most, you should leave me.
    The Lord replied, "My precious, precious
    child. I love you, and I would never,
    never leave you during your times of
    trial and suffering.
    When you saw only one set of footprints,
    It was then that I carried you."

    I carried a lot of people for a long time, all their problems and worries. Their pain...i just took it all onto myself and I didnt care how it affected me; but these last few weeks I have been struggling to stay alive. Ive tried more than once to end my life and ive done more physical damage to myself in the past 2 weeks than I have ever done in my life. im not coping, im not fuctioning, im not surviving...im just here. Dead numb and in more pain than i know what to do with. its affected everything, my personality, my job, the horses. So i guess what im trying to say is I need to carry myself for awhile, i cant help people, i cant take away their pain and even tho that destroys me inside cuz i know im letting a lot of people down. I cant sacrifice myself for anyone anymore. Ive ignored the pain too long...im sorry if this offends someone but i need to take care of me.

    I wrote something similar here so I totally understand. Your wellbeing is most important. :console: I sincerely hope you'll be ok.
    And the first time I read that poem last year, it had me in tears (even now). Be well Angel. :)
