    While we understand that Free Jinger is the internet "home" for many of our posters, Free Jinger is not a support board and therefore is not an appropriate place to seek out serious psychiatric advice or support. Free Jinger, and its staff are not equipped to deal with these situations. Any post threatening self-harm or suicide will be locked and the poster will be referred to appropriate resources.

    If you need help escaping an abusive or fundamentalist environment, please dial 2-1-1 in the US to reach the United Way, 1-800-363-9010 to reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline in Canada, or 116 123 in the UK to reach Samaritans. All are confidential and can provide links to local resources that can offer you a way out.

    The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the United States, its territories, and Canada, the hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with professional crisis counselors who, through interpreters, can provide assistance in over 170 languages. The hotline offers crisis intervention, information, literature, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources. All calls are confidential.

    If you are contemplating suicide, you do need to speak to a professional. Please call 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK in the US, 1-800-448-3000 in Canada, or 116 123 in the UK. You can also text 471471 to reach the US suicide hotline.

      All I want is one day where I don’t feel like Giles Corey.  
      Just one.

      I’m trying to shame myself into some motivation. I have so much to do but I’m tired. I’d rather play on my phone in bed. Here’s my to do list for today:
      shower, work (5hrs), grocery shop (hopefully so late it won’t be crazy busy), laundry (MIL’s), clean bathroom, clean out fridge, vacuum all carpet, scoop litter, sweep kitchen floor, then mop. I really need to clean the oven but I don’t think I have time. 
      There are more things I could add but I’ll spare all of us. 😬

      I ordered my feasting foods for Thanksgiving - custom tailored as usual since it’s just me. The Whole Foods shopper didn’t have enough pumpkin pie slices without whipped cream [I requested two] So she threw in two with whipped and the one without. Aw darn  
      ...I only wanted it without so I could also have a spray can. A very minor quibble. And I thought it might hold up a bit better till thursday.
      Mm three days of pie.
      That is my holiday.
      ...Er and some heartburn already, damnit, I shouldn’t have had pie first thing in the morning.
