Falling Down

Something’s not right here. It’s not supposed to be this way. I’m always three steps ahead, yet lately I feel like I’m struggling to keep up. I try to make progress but I keep falling down. Then every time I try to pick myself the weight gets heavier and heavier. Like quicksand. The harder I struggle the faster I sink. But I can’t just give up. I feel like the answer is right in front of me but I just can’t see it, or it’s just out of reach. I realize that everyone can’t expect to have the fairy tale ending, but I know that my story doesn’t end like this. Not like this..

     so sorry... wish I had words ... don't let your story end without your absolute approval.... while you breathe... there's always that chance - never give up - and the old adage... don't let the bastards get you down...

  3. For "no reason", I get on fb this late ... & see your post.
    Providence? Divine Intervention? That's anyone's interpretation.  I'm not sure we have the answer, but we're here for you. Call if you feel the need.  "Make it Happen" ... nuff said.

    WHEN PEOPLE HAVE TRULY REACHED THEIR PIT AND HAVE NO SELF LEFT, SUDDENLY THEIR CHANCES OF MEETING THE LIVING GOD INCREASE EXPONENTIALLY...LIFT UP THOSE BURDENS TO HIM! BLESSINGS...

    Maybe it is not about giving up, but letting go instead, so the 'whatever' will come to you for the change to happen...and it isn't a struggle.  Feeling the same way...struggling to figure out my next step and it is right there, yet out of reach....and doing, trying to figure it out, or the struggling only makes it more out of reach.  Am taking a break myself so that I can allow it to come instead of trying to make it happen.  And, I disagree...we can have a happy ending...all of us...and it is possible...we just need to know it.

  7. Are you ok? Does anyone know why Nowhere Man has not been on here for so long? It's very worrying.

    anyone hear from this fellow??? Happened to see the title of his blog and have read some of it. I can relate to his message and I'm worried about him.

  9. We're Very worried too ... We hadn't heard from him in awhile & his posts had changed in "tone" & become more infrequent. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do?

  10. Do you know anyone he knows or does anyone? Is there some place of contact that he went to, like the food hall he would go to.
    I'm so concerned and worried.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I mean the Community Centre he went to, does anyone know which one that was?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Paula, Do you have any details about any of the places he goes, like the name of the community center, or street it might be on? I don't know how large skid row is as far as area; it could be really hard to pin down info. Does anyone live in the LA area that might be willing/able to check any info out?

  13. I live in London so I don't know but have been looking some up on the web. I was thinking of emailing some of the ones I had found. What do you think?
    I'm so worried. This is not right, something must have happened. It's driving me crazy.
    I'll email the ones near that area and see what they say, hopefully they will reply.
    Thank you for talking to me and helping it really means a lot

  14. Thank YOU, Paula. If you could email the ones you found it would be great. Hopefully they'll reply & maybe have some suggestions for us. We'll go from there. That's all we can do at this point. Thank you, again. If anyone else has any suggestions ... please post.

  15. If you are there and reading this, A Happy New Year to you. I miss you so much, still trying to find you!
    Please God you are alright xx

  16. I have emailed different Shelters/ community shelters and heard nothing back so far. I'm at a loss and it's tearing me up inside .
    Where is he?? .... Where are you?!

    Paula, is there a way I can get in contact with you directly? 
    I looked for your name on the members list & can't find it. I think we can be more productive & collaborate better by communicating in a more direct way; other than this thread. 
    Please let me know. 
    I signed up to follow this blog, but I don't have a blog page so I can't redirect you to my page. Do you have one? I'm not in favor of posting my email here either. Any suggestions? 

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you for replying its very kind of you. Are you in Twitter ? If so I can tell you my Twitter name and you can find me that way and we can then direct message
    Bless you and thank you

    Unfortunately I'm not on twitter. 
    I'm not clear on what's visible from our member profiles ... can you click on my profile & see my email? Or message me from there, which will get sent to my email? 
    Thanks :)

    Well, this is odd, I noticed I'm signing my name on my posts as Nitro, but it's posting it as my username ... anyway - they're both me, in case you were wondering.

  21. I'm so sorry I can't see how to click on your profile ... How do I do that ?

  22. Nitro!1/10/2013

    I was wondering the same thing from my end - I just figured I didn't know how to do it right. I tried & it just brought up your past posts.

    Do you have a profile listed in the members list? 
    Can you click on mine from there? Mine is listed.

    Ok, I just read the directions ... we can go to other members profiles, click on the name & click "add as a friend" to send a friend request. 
    But I don't see your name in the list - is it listed as Paula? 
    You can try that with my profile & see if it works.

  25. Paula (or Oldcars, or whomever)...has anyone heard from him?  All of a sudden I realized that I haven't seen any posts and I got concerned.  I checked on Facebook and here, and saw these comments, and now am more concerned.  It could be anything, but am surprised that he hasn't posted.  Any word?  Hopefully, LA being his hometown, he has just made contact with someone to get him off skid row...maybe?  Want to stay positive.  Thanks for getting back to me....whomever does...take care.

  26. Hi I'm so sorry not to have been in touch, I have been dealing with some very difficult things, including devastatingly losing a dear friend very suddenly and unexpectedly.

    I am at a loss as to know what to do, I'm so upset and worried about where he is.
    What can we do? None of the shelters have emailed me back.
    I'm torn up about it and just want to know if he is ok.

    Again I'm sorry it's been so long but things have not been easy at all.

    What can we do??

  27. Where are you? Please come back so we all know you are safe and well x
