Living six people to a tent is an enterprise I would give zero stars to.
suicide hotline
As helpers, we have to realize that control is not the answer, either for us or for our clients. We can reach out, support, care, listen, reflect, and suggest. We cannot make a life that is unbearable bearable.
student loans
The way she treated me, she made it seem like I was the worst student in the world. They were having money troubles, so I was surprised when she told me they had put down a deposit on an apartment and she had bought a used truck.
Problems in the mitochondria can manifest in diseases in almost any system of the body, but they are frequently found in the muscles, brain, eyes, kidneys, liver, and GI tract.
My story is living proof that Tinder is not just a "hookup app."
When I wrote my article, I included wedding photos that I had never shared online before, because of the way my body looked in them.

It’s so much more complicated than “she’s stupid for staying.” None of us deserved it. Not one of us, you heard?

near death experiences
