Struggling with Faith

Image
The picture here is of the Baltimore Basilica. I passed it on the way to the hospital the other day. The writing near the gates says it was America's first Cathedral. Catholic charities is also nearby it as well. It is so beautiful.I have been struggling with my faith recently and my depression is horrible. And of course, anxiety is along with it so it makes for a horrible combination. I am trying to take everything one minute at a time but I find that even that is hard. I find myself praying internally to God asking Him why He never speaks back to me. A lot of the time I feel He has abandoned me. I sin. A lot. I always think I'm not good enough. I've let a lot of people down recently. I have so much fear inside of me. Fear of everything. So much worry. I just want it all to go away. I just want everything to be fine. I don't want to cry anymore. I don't want to worry myself sick (literally). I don't want to be the center of jokes because I'm being who I am…

A little nose piercing!

Image
I got my nose pierced the other day. Still trying to get used to it. I have really sensitive skin so it still hurts a lot. Have to keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't get infected. I'm also putting the stuff on it that they give everyone after you get a piercing. In a couple months, I'm thinking of getting my navel pierced. Not sure though. But I'm content with my 3 piercings for now. Lol.

My favorite quote in Spanish

Random Thoughts

1. Todd Akin is an asshole.2. Vladimir Putin is an asshole.3. The Republican Party is becoming just as bad as the Democrats, and I'm on the verge of changing my affiliation to Independent. I've been a Democrat. Got fed up with them. And now I'm getting fed up with Republicans who are stuck in biblical times and can't seem to come to the 21st Century.4. If you keep asking about why I do things, such as get my nose pierced or dye my hair or eat a lot, then my only answer for you will be: its none of your damn business. I might eat a lot, but I keep my figure. So I don't give a shit what anyone thinks.5. To all of my friends in Florida who could be impacted by Issac: you are in my thoughts and prayers. Stay safe down there!6. Psoriasis is awful when it spreads all over your body. But its still not as bad as ringworm. Ringworm is hell!!!! And I hope I never get it again. Ill tolerate psoriasis.7. The hot weather is back today. Along with humidity. 8. There needs to be …

Suicide and Society

This morning I woke up to the news that director Tony Scott jumped off a bridge to his death. He was most notable for his movie Top Gun and was the brother of Ridley Scott. Whenever someone takes their life, its a tragedy. But when an older person does, it sends a message to everyone that suicide is not a generational problem. Suicide is an epidemic in this country. Its estimated that somwhere around the world, I read that a suicide happens every minute or so. And I believe it. We have come to a point where instead of being encouraged to get help, we hear people say, "Get over it" or "Just be happy".  But for someone with mental illness or someone who has suffered trauma and has depression as a result, you can't just get over it. You can't just be happy. It takes much more than that. It takes community, friendship, encouragement, therapy, and more often than not, medication. I know this all too well. I was diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety at 1…

FREE PUSSY RIOT!!!!!!!!!!

The ladies of Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in jail this week. This is horrible. Putin and his oppressive government are at fault for this. Please everyone speak up for these ladies who are now behind bars for exercising their freedom of speech. We have to use our freedom to help them gain theirs, just like we help other dissidents around the world by speaking up for them. These strong women deserve freedom!! And I have a couple of words for Putin and his thugs: FUCK YOU PUTIN!!!!!!!! FREE PUSSY RIOT NOW!!!!!!

Sometimes It's Best To Walk

This morning getting off of my first bus downtown, the second one came fast. Myself and another woman were walking towards it and the driver stopped. Then all of a sudden right when we got up to the bus, he drives right off, leaving us. Its not the first time this has happened to people. It happens all the time. I'm not going to worry about why he left without picking us up. I sat back down waiting for the next bus which comes on 20 min intervals. But then I realized my place is about a mile and a half away, at most. And I've never walked the distance yet. And its a beautiful day so why not? Even with my feet hurting I walked the whole way. It took me about 25 mins. I've realized that walking is not only good for us physically, but it is also good for us spiritually and mentally. You get to enjoy nature. You get to have a clear mind. Seeing things you might not have seen before. I'm horribly tired though. I put on a pedometer one night at work and I clocked in 13 miles…

A Little Spice for Today

Watch "Spice Girls - Spice Up Your Life" on YouTube In honor of The Spice Girls reuniting for the closing games of the Olympics, here is my favorite song by them. I was a huge fan as a kid. Even went so far as to dress up like one of them for Halloween. Lol.

An Early Birthday Present

I live in a house with multiple tenants, including children. One of the women has twin girls, 8 yrs old. They heard it was my birthday tomorrow and when I went up to the steps of the basement, I found a hand-made card wishing me a Happy Birthday. They spelled my name wrong. Lol. Spelling it as "Clena". But I didn't mind. I loved it. Children are so sweet. They are the only ones in this world that have so much love in their hearts that we can't even begin to understand. In my opinion, having someone give me a little hand made card is so much better than something materialistic. Because it came from the heart. And that's what matters most. I'm happy. I'm happy because I have people around me that love me, even if at times I can't see it. My best friend and I have known each other since we were 11. We never thought we would survive until 18....and now we both are turning 26 this month. Time flies by so fast. But I'm thankful I made it this long.UPDAT…

San Judas Tadeo

San Judas Tadeo intercesor en todo problema dificil, consigueme un trabajo en que me realice como humano y que a mi familia no falte lo suficiente en ningun aspecto de la vida. Que lo conserve a pesar de las circunstancias y personas adversas. Que en él progrese, mejorando siempre mi calidad y gozando de salud y fuerzas. Y que día a día trate de ser util a cuantos me rodean. Asocia tu intercesión a la sagrada familia, de la cual eres pariente y prometo difundir tu devoción como expresión de mi gratitud a tus favores. Amén.

Random Thoughts for Tuesday

1. Everyone needs to have some fun. No matter what your job is or where you are. Just have some fun!!!!!!!! Everyone takes everything way too seriously and we are forgetting the meaning of fun.2. Music is a wonderful thing.3. Russia needs to free Pussy Riot immediately. The Russian government is still jailing and murdering its citizens for speaking their minds and daring to go against Putin.4. To the person who keeps following me, then un-following me on Twitter, (at least 3 times now), just stop. Its extremely annoying and just plain creepy. Its not that hard to decide whether to follow someone or not. I'm half-tempted just to block your ass so you won't have to go through the trouble of un-following me again. If my tweets aren't interesting, then don't follow. Its simple.5. Men, don't brag to every woman about how "good" you are in bed.......cause most of the time, the ones that brag to everyone, don't have shit. A vibrator would probably give more …

Prayer of the Day

Sancte Michal Archangele, defende nos in proelio; contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur : tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute in infernum detrude. Amen. Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou. O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who roam about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Music Time!

Punk Band on Trial in Russia

Watch "Russian punk rock band on trial" on YouTube Everyone please watch this video and spread the word. We need these women to be freed immediately. The Pussy Riot members have been jailed for political reasons. And I loved what they said. "Virgen Mary, drive Putin away." These women have balls. Big balls to go up against a Communist regime and its President. We must stand behind them and support them to be freed.And let me say one thing. I have noticed a lot of so-called human rights activists that are completely silent on this. And most of them being men. When Cuban punk band Porno Para Ricardo were arrested in Cuba, activists from all over the world condemned the Castro regime. Even though many did not agree with PPR's name nor their lyrics, they still campaigned for their release. So my question is, why be silent when females are jailed? Putin is no better than Castro. Both are Communist countries that oppress their people. I call on all human rights activ…
