    This is for: “>http://ceenphotography.com/2014/09/09/cees-fun-foto-challenge-contrasting-colors/ Join the fun and I am sure you can do better than me. (Not the project, but the photo ). What can I say, but the bathroom is small and no way to maneuver the camera well. Window is right there on the curtain. ( Nice in a personal way, but not for a photo) And it can be dark in there also. I do need a better camera. Sigh, someday…….

        Thanks. Can you do that twice because quite awhile back I think I did that? I would love to do it again. I like awards because it gets you out of your shell to do something different than the usual.

          This is my first time being nominated for Liebster award. I suppose you can as I have seen someone who has been nominated a few times.

          All right, can you give me a rundown what I need to do. It has been awhile. Go on your page and get the things to do? I want to read your anyway.

          So do I come on your blog and do what it says? It has been awhile. I want to see what you did with it and visit other people you nominated.

      Hi there, sure no worries. this is how it works. You will need to go to my blog, the link is provided in the earlier post. You will need to give 11 facts about yourself. Answer the 11 questions posted by me. And then, nominate 11 people & ask 11 questions for them to answer! as simple as that. Its quite fun though. Have a go at it. 🙂

    #whyistayed #whyileft-Found on another blog-My Melancholia 

    #whyistayed #whyileft.  This author says the reason for staying with an abuser so well, I am borrowing it here.

    I added a bit to the title and hope she will not mind. I give her all the credit. Please stop & visit  her blog. It is very honest and heartfelt.

    I am sharing this for several reasons:

    1. It is good to know you are not alone in such circumstances whether still there or having left.
    2. It may be the incentive and encouragement you need either way to get out or keep on. ( I know I have wanted to give in and even give up after I finally did get out.)
    3. I want to enlighten some folks that ” just have never been there and flippantly say -hurt-fully -even  in meaning well-“Why didn’t she just leave?”  This lead me to :
    4. This is about the 8th time I have left. It is the 2nd time I finally was able to get more than just a room at a shelter. I am finally ready to really “make it work” this time.  It is so hard to get help. It took me 10 months to get a small apartment. I was at a shelter and was told to leave for 6 months;I had to live for 3 more months with the abuser and I am so thankful the place opened up since I almost wanted to just live in my car when I tried to call and get back into the shelter and they would not let me. This was not because of anything wrong I had done, but because I was too costly with my meds. I could not work because I was trying to get disability and my meds were $200 a month. I tried to get Medicaid, but Missouri is a bad place to do that and they messed with me. I am now waiting on them where I am for it again.
    5. I also am sharing this because I wish to let you a bit more in on my life. I struggle with mental stuff. I am a very strong person, but depression from bipolar is a fight I have about 60% of days. I can also have extreme anxiety and just a little wrong thing happening on days I have either can make me want to roll up and hide in a cocoon for hours. I am strong because I really never do this. do not be down o yourself if you do do that. (We all have different temperaments and strengths.)
    6. I said #5 above to lead into # 6 : I really believe that if I had been married to a real gentlemen with a give and take relationship. More as a team and having mercy, grace and love for each others nuances and interests with working together, my mental stuff would have been very minor compared to how it developed with a furious and angry man I lived under.

    Now, you may not know what I am really talking about if you do not read her post also.  http://chasingdestino.com/2014/09/10/whyistayed-whyileft/ So here is the link again.
