Hello there sweetie. The Kitt lady is here for you :) I am thrilled you had a good day yesterday, that is awesome and I wish every day could be a good day but alas it does not work that way for some of us.
We all want to be liked and respected. Most of us have an inborn trait to be kind and we do our best to help others in need. We are not dumb, we are kind to a fault sometimes.
The problem is that in our kindness and sharing we sometimes leave ourselves vulnerable to the nasty, selfish people who are only pretending to like us to satisfy their own agendas.
Take a good, hard look at this friend. Does she genuinely need your help, or is she using you due to an ulterior motive? You said she is "Poison". She is not a safe person for you, may I suggest you loose this so called friend and get the poison out of your life.
A good friend is one who is understanding, caring, and shows concerns for you and others.
What I mean by understanding is that your friend will know the feelings and thoughts of your situation. Whenever you feel as if you can not make it anymore and depression or anxiety has weighed you down your good friend can relate to how you feel.
You will find a good friend, meantime you have all of us here. Don't settle for someone who hurts you. You are way to good to be treated in a bad way.
Many hugs Kitt

It is no fun to be sensitive and emotional, but it does have it's benefits too. We feel more pain, but we feel more love and all the other good things too. I am a big softie too and I get myself in major trouble by helping people out who don't give a rats about me all said and done. It's a hard habit to break, but it can be done. Have you read "when I say no I feel guilty". It is a great book and taught me how to tell people I just couldn't without wanting to go home and bang my head against something!
Hello, I just posted to your intro..............thank you for the comments and I too had to let go of the toxic people in my life, one who was suppose to be my friend for 20 years but I finally hit my turning point and thought no more.
It was hard but I let go and but I never looked back. I finally figured out I needed to take care of me first or I would not be able to help anyone again.
You will find many wonderful and caring members here in the A & P Forum so please do make yourself at home. We are happy to have you join us.
