    SO I have these 2 friends that are so amazing, I wouldn't know where I would be without them...I'm BiPolar(type II), so sometimes I have a problem with impulse purchases, some not so big but some huge(ie motorcycle). This problem has caused me to be in a pretty deep financial hole. Since I've become very aware of my impulse purchasing problem, I've done pretty good about not buying anything, or at least if it's really bad, buy something small, cheap.


    Well, Last week wednesday I was at the store...had to buy a vacuum cleaner...anyway...I love animals, I have 2 cats at the moment, but when I lived with my mother we had a ton of animals, and I miss that. When it comes to animals the impulse purchasing is VERY hard to fight. That's how I got my second cat...anyway...So I've wanted to get a cockatiel for a long time now(I had 2 back home), but over here they are pretty expensive, and when you add the cage and all that stuff it really is a lot of money. Well, when I was at the store wenesday I wanted to buy one so badly...and I know I didn't have the money...so I ended up texting my one friend J. And she talked me through the shopping helping me not to buy anything I don't need. The next day she called me and asked me if I would accept a gift from her and her partner, they want to get me a cockatiel. Well at first I did not want to them to do it, cause I know money is tight for them too. But they would not let me worry about that. So they ended up getting everyting I needed, and 2 birds...

    I know it's something small, and to most people it wouldn't necessarily mean much...but it touched me so deeply...I can't even put in words how much it meant.



    p.s. sorry, that was a long confusing ramble

    Real friends are there for you to share the good times and embrace the bad times. It's good to hear you have people you can turn to.
