for those of you who wanted to talk with me

I haven't forgotten you, it's just hard to post my email address on here, I'm thinking of making an account for the friends I meet here so that I won't care about posting it. If you are interested still in talking with me, please let me know.
I was also noticing the lack of posts on here so I can't really talk to you guys. Let's start a conversation on this post, everyone is welcome to talk. I check this everyday so feel free to post on here.

Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Oh gosh yes i had a blast!!!! I am over 21 so I got to really experience the night life, go to many clubs including one where Usher and p. diddy and all the stars throw their parties. I got in to the VIP at that one but there was no one big there that night.
I also got to spend some time on the beach, shop and eat lots of yummy cuban food and hang out all over the town.
I also met a really sweet guy who was a friend of my brother's. I may be leaving california next year to live there.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me

Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me

Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Sarah and Tia, I am sorry I have neglected my post, I have been in miami and have had no net access.
I am so sorry to hear about the hard times you guys have been having, sarah i'm sure your sister will come around. Keep your heads up girls.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Oh yeah, and my sister, the one who's lap bar came up on Goliath, she disowned me, because a whole bunch of drama went down, and her abusive husband made her hate me and the rest of her family. So now, we are having a huge fight, and she said that I am no longer welcome in her house, she cussed me out, and she said that she is don with the family, and this all happened today, so now I'm really depressed.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



My depression started when I was in middle school. It was terrible. First, one of my friends died of muscular distriffy, then my dogs killed my favorite cat, then right after that happened, I got sick of going to school, and I had my teacher cuss me me out in front of my friends. I have had it really rough. You can ask me anz question you want, I don't mind at all.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yeah, depression is horid! Sara, I hope u get over urs soon! What caused ur depression? How bad have u had it? I hope u don't mind me asking u about it! Urs Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



/'m not getting the guide dog, and I know exactly how you feel. I have tried to kill myself so many times, and I have stopped eating.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi, My friend has a pack mate and he has nothing but trouble with it.

Sarah, that would really suck about ur guide dog! I feel really sad for u.

Mimi and Aming, my depressionnn hasn't been that grate, I am on medacation because I tried to kill myself and I stopped eating. Hope to hear back Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



No I don't know. I have never even used a packmate, but I want to.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



If you can use it like a phone I would like to know how. Do you know if I could aget a Z5 inturpriter for the pacmate?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I play Z5 games all the time. I heard that on a Packmate that you can instant message and use it like a phone. On my braillenote I can't even do email.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



And something just happend and my post was posted twice.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



It's just not as good as the braille note. You have a USB port on a Braille Note but not on a Pacmate, And you can actually play Z5 games on a Braille Note.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



It's just not as good as the braille note. You have a USB port on a Braille Note but not on a Pacmate, And you can actually play Z5 games on a Braille Note.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



That is interesting. I heard that Pacmates are the best thing ever. I'm using my braillenote right now. What sucks about the pacmate?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



No you don't Pacmate sucks!!!!!!!!
If you have a braille note keep it. Haha if you don't I would gladly trade with you.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I've never even used a Pacmate, but I really want to. I don't know how to download music very good on the braillenote either.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



sounds like fun!!!
Do you know anything about downloading music on the Pacmate?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hey gueys I just Back from TSBVI and ,i loved it. I did a bunch of stuff like Judo and other marshal arts.
I am really excited about writing on here again.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



That sounds like a lot of fun. I'm not giving up on the guide dog though. I will just keep trying every year until I get one.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



sarah, sorry to hear about your guide dog not working out, depression can affect a lot of aspects of your life unfortunately. And to answer your question about what is Padre Island, it is a place in Texas that is pretty much surrounded by beaches and you can have a great time.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yeah, it does. I was really looking forward to it. It really won't matter now, because I just found out that I'm going to Knott's Berry Farm next month and my mom wants to ride Xcelerator!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hey guys I'm back. My computer totaly crashed and now I'm writing from TSBVI. That sucks about your guide dog.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



What am I going to do? The California School For The Blind decided to call Guide Dogs For The Blind and told them about my depression and eating issues, and now I might not be able to go.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



What's Padre Island? I've never been to Texas. But it is a dream of mine.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Have you ever been to Padre Island in Texas?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yes. I live in Southern California in the high desert. I live in Hesperia.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yes, Kerrville is about 70 miles away from San Antonio.
Do you live in California?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Do you live in Texas?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I actualy live in Kerrville. Kerrville is a town much smaller than San Antonio, it has a population of about 25000.
Corpus is ahsum. my family is planning to go their in the summer.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Sounds like fun!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Ooh Texas I go there because my grandparents have a home in san Antonio that we use for our vacation spot. it's really cool and big. i love it there, i also like Corpus Christi.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



When I turn 18, I plan to go skydiving. I want to go white water rafting too. That would be fun.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I have retina detachments. And I do the craziest thing imaginable. I have always wanted to go to Texas.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



My dad is just woried for my retnas. I live in Texas and I wint to the one in San Antonio


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



That's awful that your dad worries about you on rides. I'm blind and I bungee jump! What Six Flags did you go to?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hey guys I'm new here.
I've only been to six flags once in my whole life. I love rides but my dad is woried that I might hurt my eyes more althou I'm compleetly blind.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I did go to Six Flags. I had fun but my mom chickened out on Goliath. She didn't ride anything except the Gold Rusher. I also had fun at the carnival when I went on Tuesday. It was great. I'm just disappointed that the fun week is over. It ended too fast.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I'm going to six Flags on Thursday and my mom is going to ride Goliath!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



You should go to Disneyland for your birthday. You could go be a Disney princess for free! For my bipthday in a couple of months, I'm going to Disneyland for free. All you have to do is go on their website, and join the Disney club and then you get in free on your birthday. You should do that for your birthday. That would be fun!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yeah, I see her almost every day. But I still really miss living with her.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I'm so sorry sarah but at least you get to see her.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yes, that is part of the reason because I couldn't have a horse at my mom's house, she has too many dogs. The reason why I moved in with my aunt and uncle is because my mom got shingles and couldn't take care of me anymore becaus she was so sick that she almost died.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Do you live with your uncle because of your horse?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hello, Aiming, I live with my aunt and uncle right now, but I see my mom every day. But since I got my horse, I haven't been to a theme park in a while. Before I moved in with my aunt and uncle I didn't go to amusement parks that often. But since I live with them, I have been going at least once every 2 months. I haven't been this month because I had to pay for my horse. I miss living with my mom but living might be better, and it gives me a way better chance of getting a guide dog. Talk to you soon!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Sarah, I'm confused, are you with your mom or aunt and uncle?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yeah, he's crazy. He just called me right now and begged me to tell my mom to take us to ride Skyscreamer. But I said no because my mom doesn't feel good and is very cranky right now. It is weird, my mom hasn't took me to an amusement park in a long time. And he also called to tell me that he was going to ride Terminator, the new coaster at Magic Mountain before I do! That is hilarious. He knows that I go to amusement parks way more than he does.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yay me I get the hundredth post on here. Wow drugs, that's narly nasty.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



What a punk. I hate when guys rub things in your face. My ex did that when he got a cell phone that can talk.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



My ex boyfriend called me today and said that he went to Six Flags yesterday. Yesterday, I went on a wonerful horse ride. I can't believe my ex boyfriend went to Six Flags. He knows how I feel about amusement parks so he called me and said he rode X2 and Tatsu a whole bunch of times.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



That happens to my Aunt and Uncle every time the go on coasters.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



She says that they make her nautious and hurt her stomach.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



How come?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



My mom hates roller coasters.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Oh, dang, I needed someone to ride the Zipper with! Single riders are not allowed to ride for some reason. Every time I go, I never hardly get to ride it because people are too afraid to go on it. My mom said that she will go on it!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yeah I'm staying in cali I think, and no I can't go to that fair cuz I live to far and it'll be around finals week.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I just found out that the fair is next month. It is the San Bernardino County Fair! It is going to be in Victorville California next month May 9-17. I can't wait to go! Are you going to go?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Do you know if you are going to stay in California?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



That is to be determined soon enough. Since i go to a university I won't be taking classes this summer. To live in the dorms for summer would be both inconvenient and almost impossible so i have to find a place to live for three months. i don't want to move in with my momm long story. So yeah, right now I have four weeks to find somewhere or i'll just be traveling all summer all over the place staying with random friends and family.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Where are you moving to?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



AT&T and verizon have been my favorite carriers because of their reception and plans. I am always on my cell, i'm talking 24/7 so it's very important to me to have a good phone that will last through all my talking. I'm just sad because I lost my bluetooth. darn thing. i cleaned my entire room and it's still nowhere to be found. i'll probably find it when I move out next month.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I have never had a verizon phone.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I like verizon's phones because of their features.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



If you end up getting a new phone, you should go with T mobile. That is what I use. It is very awesome, and get reception even out of state. And yes, I did realize that this is the biggest post on the board. That is cool.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



do you guys realize that this is the posting with the most conversation on our whole board! That's so awesome! And it's just us talking silly stuff.
So that cell I ordered is already backfiring. That's so retarded. I'm sending it back but now i feel guilty. i told my boyfriend that I was sending it back and he just told me that he sent me a package in the mail with money to cover the cell phone and a shopping trip! What the heck is wrong with him? Now i feel bad. i'm not a gold digger.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



its more than special


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



call it my special gift.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



mimi you know my thinking too well


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Thanks, but it's not for another month. Aiming and I have been friends for five years, since we went to OCB together so he wants to send my gift early before school lets out and he won't know my summer address because I don't even know it, lol.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I have always wanted to hear the Carnival Ride Cd. I love that song "I Told So." too. It is a great song. I am addicted to the monster energy drinks I could drink those all day. Have an awesome birthday!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I'll tell you after you get it!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



i'll do you one better, I'll cut a hole in my screen and we'll have a hose that goes from the truck into my window. I can just uncork it when i need my Pepsi fix. Hahahaha. Tell me what you ordered. I hate surprises!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



ya that Carnival ride CD isn't that bad. I all ordered something yesterday, but you must wait and see. Should I just have the pepsi truck pull up to your window and stay parked there?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hahaha Sarah I always knew you were cool. That would be amazing!
So Mimi is on this new Carrie Underwood song kick, "I Told You So" is my new song so going along with the carpet ride, the carnival Ride wouldn't be a bad gift. Nothing like the song, "My last Name" to celebrate my birthday. :)
Or maybe the new Kelly Clarkson album. Or whatever other gift ideas you have. You know me well Aiming, i've put up with your antics for five years, hahahaha! You could also give me an unlimmited supply of diet cherry soda! Hahahaha. Trust me, i'm not picky.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



How about a trip to Disneyland on a flying carpet with free admssion to the park? Wouldn't that be awesome if you could really do that? That would be cool!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



ya feel you. I've been on a naudy couple hour break from HW and my eye is throbbing and its making me distractable and not wanting to work, but I'm so behind I need to stay up but don't know if I can. You still need to suggest some bday presents so mimi can get them before being a traveling woman.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



damn guys I'm feeling hella funky right now. i'm tired, school's wearing me down, and I need some relaxation. Hopefully i don't go crazy soon. hahahaha.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



a great and joyful relief


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



It is a great relief.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Now we can put all that silly drama behind us. That's a relief.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Thank you for giving me a second chance. I really apreciate it.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi Mimi and Aiming Big. I hope you guys are well. I haven't been doing very much and I will return to school tomoro. Sarah, I do believe in second chances, I will say this is your last chance. So keep posting on my post, I would love to hear from you. Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Whatever possessed you to do what you did is whatever. I'm not going into a worthless lecture, just don't let it happen again because a lot of people were upset by it. But I speak for myself when I say that i try to be nice to everyone so please don't take advantage of that.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I sincerely apoligize for all of the hurt I have caused. I didn't want to be mean or anything, I am truly sorry, and I promise that I will never do anything like that ever again. My friends told me to do it as an Aprill Fools joke and they said that it wouldn't hurty anybody. But I am no longer talking to those kids that told me to do it, because they have gotten me in to too much trouble. I truly didn't want to hurt anyone so would you please forgive me?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Thank you Tia for your praise, we try to be good people. I see no fun in being mean or harmful to others, it's just not in my nature.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Thanks Mimi, I really apreciate the fact that you and Aiming Big are trying to be nice to everyone. I would still love to join you! I think it is good that you still trust me. Hope to hear back from you Tia Ps You and Aiming Big are good people.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Tia, come on more often. I'll try to make my posts afe and you'll never be hurt by me or Aiming Big. i know him very well and he's not the type to play games and be mean, emotional hurts are worse than anything. Hope you join us again.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi Mimi and Aiming Big. Thank you for being nice about everything, I haven't been on here much after that prank because I don't want to be tricked like that again. Thats why you haven't herd from me for a while. I hope you are both wel Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi Mimi. Its been a while! I just want to tel you something and ask a question. I wil say what I've got to say first.. I want to say I had nothing to do with that girls silly prank and I just want to say that I didn't think it was funny at all! My point is how ever, if yu want to say how dum the prank was, please don't stic it on my post,because I had nothing to do with it. I don't want nothing to do with it. So if you diside to have a fight with someone, keep it on your post. My question is, why did you post them things up on my post? I think that was wrong of you!!!! I know what she did was dum, I will say that I think she needs to pull her head in and think about what she is doing. I am sorry that I sound mad,I am not but I just neded to make that very clear to you. I am sure, that you are just as upset as what I am. I hope you are well Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



It turns out that we are not going to any amusement any time soon. This is because I got my own horse! I went on a ride today and had so much fun! Hope to talk to you soon!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Please forgive me for playing that joke. I'm very sorry if I offended or made you mad. Please forgive me.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I am very afraid of amusement parks. April Fools! The truth is, I was never traumatized at an amusement park, I was just planning ahead for April Fool's day! I'm sorry if you think that it is mean to play jokes, but I am a very good prankster.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Okay I'll try that.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I agree with mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Sarah we've told you that there is nothing that you can do, if she wants to go on those rides she can. As for you, you don't have to. Throw a fit and the ride attendant won't make you ride.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Oh my God! My mom is going to ride Xcelerator on April 23!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Oh yeah, and I have nightmares about Rip Tid every night!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Guess what! I just found out that we are having a change of plans. On April 23, we are not going to Magic Mountain, we are going to Knott's Berry Farm! I am petrified! My mom said that I have to ride Rip Tide by myself! That is an upside down water ride!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I just found out that my mom is for sure going to ride Goliath on April 23!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Thank God!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Aiming big be nice. neverland is not real, but yes. Disney is pretty safe, one of the safer parks and there are no roller coasters that go upside down there.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



we've gone to never land, not disneyland. And its ok; no reason to worry over it millions of people go to disneyland every day and no one gets hurt.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



No sarah we did not go to Disneyland, don't worry. It's going to be okay.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I am so scared right now! I know that you two are at Disneyland and I am laying in bed crying, worried sick. Please Be Careful! I am worried sick! I am praying and crying right now! Please don't get hurt or die!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I just found out that I am going to Six Flags Magic Mountain on April 23. My mom said that the first ride that we will go to is X2. And she said that I am riding it! It has fire on it, they use flamethrowers, it has loops, and a vertical drop! It is a combination between a roller coaster and the Zipper!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



If you aren't ready to ride, don't. i know i make it sound simple but it really is. You should be able to make your own choices.
I don't think you should let this stop you from living your life. Plus, i don't remember many screams at Disney.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Don't go! I have been to Disneyland a lot of times before this happened. I tried it again, and I freak out and I cry just if I hear a scream at an amusement park. It is very scary just thinking about you going to Disneyland. Oh and by the way, my family knows about my phobia, and they said that they just won't tell me what amusement park we are going to, and when we go, they will just either trick me on rides, or force me on them. I am so scared right now! And I have talked to my doctor and there is nothing he can really do. I think that we will go to Six Flags next month, do think I should ride X2 or Tatsu since I am going to be forced to ride them?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Cool, i'll be where i have always belonged. lol


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



no, were landing in the castle and skipping the gates.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Wow, if you are paying i really feel like a princess, lol. You're funny.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



btw the carpet ride comes with free admission to the park.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yay! Then i'll really be a disney princess. but belle and Ariel are my favorites. Jasmine is my third favorite. Oh well, i'll still take the carpet ride any day. You know where to find me.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



ok, I'll meet you at the front door with my magic carpet then!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



No!!!! My window has a sccreen and i don't have a screw driver. the plane's going to leave me!!!!! lol


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hey mimi, I'll just have the plane drop a rope by your window so be there to go to disney or enjoy college some more in a few minutes.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Fine, i'll meet you in five minutes. lol I'll give you ten to make sure you're there. You still owe me a disney princess souvenir from your last trip.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



yes, disneyland rides would be perfect, and I'm all up and ready for a disneyland trip! Hows tomorrow morning? I love disneyland.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



What's up aiming big? I loved your post, especially where you say you agree with Mimi, lol kidding. You know me, always messin' around.
But seriously I agree with you, trying disneyland never occured to me, maybe we should all take a field trip there. Hahaha no really, i want to go there and i think the rides there would be perfect for sarah and safe enough.

Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hello Sarah, If you associate positive thoughts with roller coasters and look at statistics that say they are safe more often than not then it might be easier to think about them. I agree with mimi, just don't deal with the negative stories and or sites if they give you problems. Have you talked to your doctor about over coming fears? I know for me, I'm afraid of hights and flying, but I still fly regularly even recently when the pilot made the announcement that the plane had been having mechanical problems, and it scared me, but I just had to make myself relax and after a few minutes of thinking about other stuff, it was off my mind. By the way, how often do you ride roller coasters? Or you could start with simple non full strength rides and work your way up. I know the worse ride I've ever been on is the tilta wirl. But I mean, maybe start on like Disneyland rides that don't do a whole lot and move up slowly when you are comfortable.

Also, if you are still having issues and have been with the same psychologist for a while, you might want to look into another one and maybe some other treatment methods with another one.

But I'm not a professional, and am just giving my own personal advice, but a professional would better for what to actually do.

Aiming Big

Tia I have never been to Australia but it has been a dream of mine.
Sarah doesn't your family understand that you are afraid? I don't know what to tell you besides asking your family for support and no pressure to go you know? Also, you don't have to ride the rides but i know just being there may give you anxiety.

Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I just found out that my family is going to an amusement park next month and they're taking me!


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I am worried. No, I haven't looked at that site, but for some reason I just feel terrified knowing that my friend is there.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi Mimi. No I have never left Australia! What about you have yu ever been to Australia? Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Sarah how is this making you feel knowing that she is there? Are you okay? Have you continued looking at that web site that I suggested you not look at.
Tia, I think it is so awesome that you live in Australia. have you ever been to the States?
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Guess what, Tia and Mimc, my friend is at an amusement park right now.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi Mimi and Sarah. I love the giant drop which is at Dream world which is one of the most popular theme parks in Australia. It goes really high up and then it stops and it just drops yu man it is fun! Talk to you soon Tia


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



yes, the one in magic mountain and the giant dipper is in a small place called the santa cruz beach and boardwalk here in Cali.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



That is cool that you like Goliath, what Superman ride do you like? There are so many Superman rides that I don't know which you are talking about. Are you talking about the one at Magic Mountain. And where is the Giant Dipper located? It sounds very fun.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I like indiana Jones, medusa, goliath, superman, the giant dipper, and other really fun ones.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



What is your favorite ride?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I thought it was okay but it's been years since I rode that one.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Wow! That is awesome! What did you think of the Zipper?


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I've been on the Zipper, yes. i've been on most roller coasters here in Californai. I love them.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Have you ever been on a ride called the Zipper? It is a very popular carnival ride. Have you ever been on Tatsu or X2? Those are two of the most craziest coasters out there.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Well, what i love about roller coasters is the excitement when you reach the top, especially being blind because you can't see what it does so it's a surprise everytime.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



I would love to keep our conversations going. That would be fun. The mor I talk about roller coasters, the better I feel about them. Let's try saying good things about roller coasters and that might help me get over my bad fear of them. Thanks for the advice.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Sarah:
Even if you don't fall in love with roller coasters again, i know it would feel nice to not feel anxious and panicky about them you know? just stay positive, try to think of happy subjects, and stop scaring yourself with those awful stories.
Hopefully we keep our conversations going.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Okay, thanks for the advide Mimi. I will try that. Who knows, I might just automatically start loving roller coasters again. Thank you very much.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



dear Tia:
I remember you from my first post and I would love to continue to talk to yu. I find it fascinating that you are from Austrailia, really cool.
I am totally blind as well as you are so i can see how hard it is to try and make long-lasting friendships. Anything you want to talk about is fine, as long as it is safe and appropriate for everyone.
Like I said in my above posts, i am not a psychologist and i cannot give advice or professional anything but I can be a friend an someone who will gladlhy listen.
I look forward to more posts from you.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Dear Sarah:
Well here's part of your problem, stop looking at that site. and ask your family to stop telling you these stories, it's not mentally healthy to keep putting yourself back in to those situations of fear. How are you expecting to get over the fear if you keep looking at it and reading about it? Also, are you sure those accidents are legit? After class i'm going to give that site a look-see and see if I can figure out if they are real or not.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



People in my family have been telling me about these accidents, and I have read about a lot of them on the internet. There is actually a website called www.rideaccidents.com. It has all of the accidents that have ever happened at amusement parks or carnivals. Thanks for talking to me.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hi Mimi. My name is Tia and I suffer from Post Trormatic Stress Disorder due to things that I have happened to me. I am also very lonly and am not sure how to make friends. I am totaly blind and I really want to b your friend.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



As far as helping you, I am just a student and not a professional by any means. What I can do for you is support you and empathize, I have had symptoms of sadness, loneliness, worthlessness, and other symptoms that hav to do with major depression. i can tell you that working on these feelings is important, staying on your medication is important as well if therapy alone is not working.
I also want to know who is repeatedly telling you these horror stories about the amusement parks? If they know you have a fobia, why do they continue to taunt you with these stories? I think that is insensitive and I don't mean to put anyone down but I think it's rude to feed in to someone's fears like that. You don't drop someone in a pool who is afraid to swim.
Keep writing, talk about anything at all, sometimes thinking of other topics and conversations will help you make your day a bit brighter. I know that when I have lots of social interaction I feel much better and that makes my day better and my feelings of sadness a little less powerful.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Yes, I am on therapy and medication right now. My smyptoms of depression are horrible anxiety attacks, loss of appetite, loss of interest, severe sadness, suicidal attempts, and sleeping problems. And I have already been to a mental hospital, and talked to my family about this. And with the amusement parks, I have nightmares every night, and every day somebody always tells me about a new accident that has happened at a theme park. So yeah, that is my situation right now. Do you think that you could help me.


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hey there, finally conversation gets started.
I posted on your posts, I think that if you have tried therapy for your depression and it hasn't worked then you definitely need to find a different solution. Have you tried medication like antidepressants or antianxiety pills like Lexapro or Zannax? Have you tried a combo of therapy and medication?
Also, if you can, can you describe some of your symptoms of depression just so that I can get a better grasp of what you are talking about.
Mimi


Re:for those of you who wanted to talk with me



Hello, What do you think I should about my amusement park situation and horrible depression? Thank you so much for helping me.
