What is your purpose?

what do you wake up in the morning for?

I feel like I am just existing but I want something more

I wake up in the morning to work towards becoming a college professor and to help counsel people with a degree in Psychology. I wake up in the morning to go to work so that I may save money to one day build a family of my own with my girlfriend. I wake up in the morning to build a life: a life that will make me happy and to do my best to be happy in the meantime with good friends, a loving girlfriend, a job that I'm OK with for now, and knowing that I am working towards goals I have made up for myself. Working towards those goals are my purpose. It's not just the long-term goals. I have daily goals to be the best person I can be, to remind my girlfriend I love her by being romantic, to be a good family member and remind that I'm there to listen, to be a good friend.

But, what I live for is irrelevant. I used to just feel like I was just existing- just breathing in and out to make my blood flow in my veins.

I was living for other people- fulfilling my parent's wishes, playing the role I made up for my "friends", feeling like my life was going nowhere so what was the point? So, I made a point to live and grow and therefore be happy. We all have a purpose- it's just that sometimes our purpose doesn't fall on our lap by crying for help or by enlisting you to be apart of their group. Sometimes we have to find it or even create it for ourselves.

So, let me ask you, what do you want? What do you want to live for? What do you want to wake up in the morning for or to?

My reasons for waking up in the morning:
To go to the one class I like (philosophy),
see my friends,
talk to my mother.

I wake up every morning to make sure time is still passing. Ever since I put my first born up for adoption, I've been living for the day I'll get to see her again.

No. To me, they feel like they have fur inside of them.

Why am I having such hard come-downs? (No drugs or alcohol involved, except caffeine on occasion). If I go out and have a good time, I'll come home and feel emotionally dead for the next day or so. If I go out and have an EXCELLENT time, I'll feel so depressed for several days afterwards that I don't see the point in living anymore. I didn't used to be like this, and now I'm afraid to have fun knowing I'll feel like crap afterwards.

it the same reason people have crashes on alcohol and drugs. Your body is a chemical factory. Fun makes endorphins, you have fun for a while you ride a high. You come home and crash, that get reinforced when you have nothing to bring you back up - you reflect and get sad, thats a whole new chemical. So you just go lower. If you are low when you go out you create too many endorphins and the cycle continues.

(OP) That makes sense... I just wish the crashes weren't so bad.

I have a friend who is HIV-positive. he has been for several years. His viral loads are low, and he seems as healthy as anyone else. However, right now he has bronchitis and is on meds for it.

My question is, will he recover the same as anyone else would, or will this take more time due to his HIV? I've already asked him what happens when he gets normal little illnesses and he says he does not get sick all that often. His doctor doesn't seem worried at the moment but I'm a natural worrier.
I would just like to have some reassurance that this stupid little bronchitis thing isn't going to hurt him too much and that he will eventually get better.

I'm not a doctor so I don't know for sure, but a friend of mine is also HIV-positive, and she has had her seasonal colds and such and is still okay to this day. I think this is mostly due to the advances in HIV treatment and management and that she has been very responsible with keeping up with what she has to do to stay healthy.

thank you for your reply. he also keeps up on his HIV meds and gets very regular check-ups. I think I kind of knew deep down he'd be fine but it was just bothering me because I'd never really seen him sick before--annnnd I'm a worrier. I try not to fret around him, though. He has enough to worry about.

I'm sorry about your friend. I guess you know what it is like to have someone you care a lot about going through this. best of luck to both of you. I hope she continues to stay healthy.

Thank you. I'm a worrier too, but my friend and her doctor and various professors have all assured me that as long as they stay safe and keep up with their meds, people who are HIV-positive can lead full, healthy lives. :) Good luck to you too.

I'm in the process of trying to adopt a dog. I've adopted two dogs on behalf of my family before from shelters and rescue which required simply filling out an adoption form, but this time is different because I've been in contact with a family that is moving and must give up their dog. They asked to have an interview with me, which I assume is to make sure their dog is going to the right home. What kinds of questions can I expect? And what kind of questions should I be asking in return? (such as if the dog is up-to-date on shots, if she is spayed, if she usually eats dry food or canned food...are those types of questions okay to ask?)

I would ask if there is anyway you can get their full vet history so that you can forward it to the vet you'll be taking the animal too. I know when I got my cat, the owner was happy to hand over their entire medical history from the vet's office.

Also ask about any personality quirks, tricks it can do, overall temperament of the animal.
(We had a dog who was a bouncy thing. We added "La Roo" to the end of his name because bounced around a like a kangaroo when he got excited and was trying to get peoples attention.)

They'll probably ask about your history with dogs, where you'll keep the dog, how you'll be spending time with the dog (including much free time you'll be able to devote to cleaning and playing), what kind of diet you'll provide (and what the reasoning is). They might even ask if you have a vet in mind. Chances are they won't be as detailed as this- they just want to know that you'll be able to provide a good home for their dog and will be able to provide the love and support it needs.

I think the above comment covered a lot of what you should ask, but I would also ask about microchipping- very useful to do in case your dog were to get out. Also, find out what toys the dog has been playing with and what it doesn't like.

p0stsecret makes me feel a little less alone.
sigh.
i don't really know what is reality or not anymore. i have so many theories. ideas. about whats going on, that my head can't keep up. i think i'm crazy, but i hide it well. either a) nothing exists, and i'm right, or b) everything does exist, and i am crazy.

sorry if this doesn't make sense. i just need to rant.

As a teen, what were your parents like?

I'm just wondering because some of my friends have parents that let them come and go as they please, but my parents don't let me leave the house whenever I want, and they want to know who I'm with and blah blah blah.

It can be so aggravating.
