    I feel bad. Someone just hurt my feelings, and while I know it was unintentional I wish the person could have been more gentle. I am feeling really sensitive, it's hard to cope today. Please help.

    It's a little scary for me to get too much into it, but I can say that right now I am very fragile and have a low tolerance for anything even *kind of* mean launched in my direction. I also feel really irritable, but have no choice but to deal with the people who are upsetting me.

    I'm sorry I can't be more clear. Just really upset and some things I can't even explain anyway.

    Any coping tips could help. I don't want to journal right now for specific reasons. I wouldn't mind funny or helpful web links? I'm hungry but there's no food. I have no money to buy more before Friday.

    I'm sorry about that, it really sucks when you're vulnerable already!

    Could you go for a walk somewhere? Change the scenery a little bit to clear your head? I find that I need that sometimes.
    Another thing that works to calm is a 'butterfly hug'... I use that sometimes when my world burns and crashes... the idea is to hug your arms over your chest and lightly tap your hands into your upper arms, one by one in a slow and steady pace... for some reason that calms the brain with the cross stimulation...

    I know how that is. I can be really sensitive too and even things meant as a joke can sometimes set me off. I am sorry that you are feeling bad today. I hope that things have improved a bit now, and if you still feel down, I hope you find something fun to do, or even just keep talking things out here.

    I'm trying to hang in there. I did go for a walk, that was kind of nice. I'm around other people and can't really get away or go to another room so still feel stuck, and low. I hate being dependent upon other people! I am homeless so I *have* to stay a few more days (at least) with a friend and her husband, and he isn't very likeable. Very judgmental and even narcissistic. And to be able to stay here, I have to swallow how I really feel. He's honestly pretty much a jerk.

    I'm sorry that you had to this happen to you. I had the same thing happen yet the person who said it was my wife. It hurt deeply and still does. I have clamed up with her and really don't say to much to her. I have a friend who also says insensitive things when I try to explain to him how I am feeling. I don't know what the answer is yet I try to expunge it from my being.
