Except for the insomnia, I feel the same. Bad things keep happening. I
feel aweful for being upset about it, though. I feel like I'm just being a
whiney little bitch. "Ooh, the cat I just adopted is going to die. It's
not fair." But it happens. I am racked with guilt for my natural feelings.

I've got terrible anxiety. Even with the new kitties. I am nervous around
them. I am generally fine at work in when in a professional attitude and
talking to customers on the phone. But when the uniform service guy comes
in and asks me to sign the invoice, I get all shakey and want to cry. At
wal-mart, shopping is horrible and check-out is even worse. I grin and push
my way through, though. I hate it.

LonelyGirl, things happen. Things happen to us and things happen to others.
Some of us, however, can't deal with it as well (namely you and I). I don't
know what to do.

I suppose the difference, though, is that I can sleep. I sleep about 11
hours every night. And if it weren't for that urge to pee in the morning, I
would sleep longer.

I know I haven't really helped at all, but perhaps maybe I have let you
relate a bit.

I need to go care for my sick kitty now.
