For all of the bad weeks, months, years and leading up to that 1 bad day, don't lose hope. You have hundreds of thousands of days left to get it right and make it better. I'm not saying it will be easy, so pray about it. You are worth all the time in the world. Tomorrow and the next day etc... is another chance. Don't give up. Please try something different this time. Over and over until something works.
Scream! Break a dish! Shut the world out and take some me time. Just don't take your life. I get very down at times. I know some of what you're feeling. There is almost literally NO ONE for me to turn to with the exception of my husband and 2 of my daughters. And when their lives get busy, it's just me, Jesus and God. And for so many years, that has been enough. I have excellent coping mechanisms that I go through alone and because of that small yet great amount of help, I will live on to talk and work through it. Even if it's just within myself.
I have a host of emotional impairments, and thankfully I don't think of harming myself, but there are days I want to disappear. So I do. I avoid the people and or situations that provoke my impairments!! No phone calls in or out. No in house visits. I may shop or watch the same funny episodes of The Office, like I am now. But I find my happy place and live there for as long as it takes for me to regroup. Those that know and love me, understand and give me my space when I need it. I appreciate that. It's often an introverts dream to just be left alone. But owning that also means mastering the downfalls of it. Stay strong. Be careful in there.
Someone, even if it's just you, loves you. Be here for you. These recent two and prior suicides bring me to an enormous state of sadness. I wonder, what was that final straw?! Why did they have to go right then?! I didn't question where their support was, because there is often help available, if and or when we choose to speak up or ask for it. What about when you don't want to ask? You have to have other options. Work it out! Pull YOURSELF to the side. Learn your trigger's. Denounce them, shake it off and exist. I'm rambling now, but yeah, I'm entirely sorry that those people couldn't find solace.

I'm not very good at marketing, because I don't want to ever force myself or "my brand" upon anyone. So, in as few words as possible. Here's Collect Me In Paris, released and selling since yesterday. I play with multiple cover options in the beginning, and settle on the one that reflects closest with the content of the completed book. Not necessarily always my favorite, but yeah... Access the link below, IF you're interested.
Enjoy and thanks for your continued support! ~Angela aka Angel Dust

The elections are bigger than just the General election for Presidency. There are so many people that only vote at that time. Well the Primary elections are just as important. This world didn't start or end with the elections of Obama and or Trump. It takes more than 1 person to form a successful team. Many first and last timers came out to play then; however, I'm not new to this. Been voting for over 30 years. Don't be quick to yell foul; when in fact, you were never in the game. Go Vote!
