I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

You Are Not Alone


This time of year, no matter how busy you are or how many parties you attend, can often leave us feeling lonely. Oh sure, we may be surrounded by family & friends, but often they can make you feel overwhelmed, helpless, shamed, etc… I think it is so important to have someone in your life (in some way, shape or form) that you can vent/rant/cry on without judgment or shame. I think a lot of us need that in our lives throughout the year, but this time of year for me, especially, leaves me feeling worn-out and just not willing to keep on keepin’ on, ya know?

Please, if you have no one else to turn to, you can turn to me! I have seen the deep dark underbelly of depression, suicide, sadness, family bullshit, abuse and so on. I won’t judge. I have no weird motives, just want to reach out to those who feel there is no one to turn. There is! There is always someone who can help and/or who cares. email me: If you like, you can even text me if you have a severe moment where you just need to tell someone something NOW! Email me! Hit me up! I’m here!

Also, if you’re a fellow FA blogger, consider offering yourself up as support for those who need it. Surely we’ve all been there. Sometimes we just need a little venting or someone to listen to our side of the story (isn’t that why we blog?).

And please do not forget to take care of yourself! Do something! Anything! Just do something special, no matter how big or small, for yourself. Get a massage! Get a pedicure! Watch a movie! Have a girl’s night or hang out with some old friends.

Do something that makes you feel good!

Thank you all for being so kind and loving to me when I needed it and I hope to give back for as long as I possibly can.

    Fabulous post. Anytime I see “You are not alone” I really just tear up. Gaaah should not feel this way!

    I think it’s perfectly valid to feel that way. Why not? I get misty eyed hearing John Lennon talk or sing about anything! Ha-ha! It’s a good thing, I think (& hope). =0)

    Still a human snot ball, but I think the worst is past, thanks!

    Some time we need to get together and listen to John Lennon a lot. I’ll bring the hankies! ; )
