Nothing is working. I am so fat, all alone, and broke. I have been dumped by every man I have ever gone out with- the last one dumped me for my best friend (of 21 years- we grew up together- we were like sisters) so it was a double betrayal. I stopped looking for a partner and tried to concentrate on myself, and it seems like all I get is screwed over. My psychiatrist asked me if I was looking for new friends, and I honestly told her NO! I am tired of putting myself in the position of getting stomped on! I mean some people might think that I am putting on the self-pity, but I am telling the truth! I can't trust or confide in anyone! I had a horrible fight with my brother's girlfriend last week and she made up some horrible lies about me and told my mother- who didn't believe her, but I thought we were friends! so I GIVE UP!!!! I am losing my will to live. I keep hearing that things will turn around- but it has been 13 years of trying to start my life, and I am tired of getting treated like crap by everyone. My cat died yesterday- I am on the edge.
