• KitKatKitty replied to the topic Feeling Trapped in the forum General Chat 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Hello. Thank you for all your advice. I have thought about it and will take the following steps:

    1. Make sure I do NOT miss work
    2. Go on the bus once a fortnight to start with and then once a week
    3. Apply for an English Literature course
    4. Make sure I go to my social group at least twice a month
    5. Be open to days out
    6. Checking out a dating…

  • Everyone has a right to be here.

  • Unfortunately I was not able to go to work today. Not only am I scared of losing my job, I have also realized how trapped and isolated I feel. I am also emotionally confused: I do not know where I am going and where I am going to. Plus, I have no partner, so am lonely.

    Saving graces: I have my best friend, Vicky. I have my family nearby: all of…[Read more]

  • Schala has made a few points I agree with. It is better to compare you with you: like not comparing yourself to other women on the Internet. Look good for your benefit, instead of being in competition with other girls. Flaunt your body because YOU are sexy: not because you are competing with others. Many people do believe all of life is a…[Read more]

    I agree with cassandra.

    But I feel your pain, too: you obviously have a wonderful friendship and the idea of said friend getting to know your “enemy” [for lack of a better word] is heartbreaking and worrying. The risk of losing such a valuable friendship to your enemy would be extremely upsetting for you. In fact, I’d think the same as you, in…[Read more]

    I tend to buy clothing as & when I want to. I have picked up many items and have quite an extensive wardrobe. What influences me is personal style and preference. I don’t follow fashion trends in magazines: I choose clothes based on what works for me. However, I still love being feminine and wearing skirts and dresses and wonderful shoes. Because…[Read more]

  • Looks – and weight – do change in time for everybody. Even celebrities age and get bigger. Just look at Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera.

    Anyhow, I also have grown into my looks. I also pamper myself with daily showers and beauty products. Because I am attractive and want people to see that. There – of course – are some aspects I am not so…[Read more]

  • It has fairly healed now. Thank you for all your advice: it is much appreciated.

  • I agree, Herzeka: I only have myself and will always have to live with myself. It makes sense to be kind to myself and cherish myself. When I am on my deathbed [hopefully not for a long, long time!] I will be able to say I took care of myself and made the best of my life. Because – you’re right – I am stuck with myself forever: so I’d best make…[Read more]

  • I second your post, Schala. Losing weight permanently means slow and steady. Crash diets/starving/diet pills/meal replacements work briefly, but then the weight comes back on. In some cases, it radically increases weight. The body also needs food for its various functions. Food is the energy of the body. Therefore taking its energy – lack of…[Read more]

  • It is an option. Thank you!

  • Funnily enough, I bought myself a small pack of peanuts to enjoy. The next morning, I woke up on the sofa, peanuts all over the floor. I had obviously tried eating them in my sleep and dropped them. I was really looking forward to eating them, too! On the bright side, it meant less calories. LOL.

    Back to what I don’t eat: I avoid crisps, sausage…[Read more]

  • Doris Day had been wonderful and will live forever in people’s hearts.

    I think people who work for the angels are rewarded with love and happiness in their lives. I’d definitely rather be an angel than a demon. I just cannot hurt people: I feel so guilty and like scum. People do deserve respect. I think that is an important lesson everyone learns…[Read more]

  • I feel bad for you, cassandra. I know that is awfully weak, but I can’t think of what else to write.

    I agree with you: healthy is better than slim. It’s like if someone were a size 6 and a heavy smoker, then they’re unhealthy. But say a person is a size 16 but never smokes, then they’re more healthy. Smaller does not always equal more…[Read more]

  • KitKatKitty replied to the topic Online shopping in the forum The Lab 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    I LOVE QVC. I watched it the other day and it was all about nails. Now, I am addicted to nail polish and nails in general. I have my nails painted a tomato red at the moment. I am always cleaning and filing my nails, too. I have always looked affer them and always will.

    Manicures should be part of every woman’s life!

  • Sometimes I wonder if my enemy is myself. I suppose though that I am being my own best friend. All these demons come from inside of me. I have caused my own problems. Still, I try to be positive and protect and cherish myself. Any demon in my head is actually myself. I have learnt this through years of living. I try to never put myself down and…[Read more]

  • I have cleaned again today and there is no reaction. Wearing thick rubber gloves does help. Cream on my hands also does wonders.

    Again, thank you for all your advice.

  • Seriously gorgeous! I am wearing a Rimmel London dark burgundy colour today. I can’t post any pictures, unfortunately, but it’s a lovely colour. I shall wear lipstick daily now.

    You’d be right to do the same with your looks! Lipstick is a wonderful cosmetic.


  • That is so true, SpinningJen. When the money is not physically in your hand, it doesn’t feel like spending money. That is why credit cards used to be so addictive. I even got in debt with one once. Thankfully I paid it off, but now I stick with a debit card and PayPal. I refuse to purchase anything with a credit card these days.

  • Lipstick is addictive, isn’t it? I love wearing it. In fact, I shall start wearing it daily, starting from today. I have a fair few colours: I don’t want to wear red all the time. I do love Clarins and MAC. They are the “expensive” brands but are what I choose.

    Talking about expensive: I use L’Oreal night cream on my face, every night after…[Read more]
