^^You could just say you met online originally. I don't suppose you need to go into detail about where online if you don't feel like it.

Sent an old friend a Happy Birthday message this morn. Got me thinking about age again. She's 39 - I will be later on this year. God it's depressing How the f**k have I got so close to 40.

I don't fully understand what's going on in my head

But 6 months ago I was quite up for the idea of meeting someone so I did the whole signing up to a dating site malarkey

Now? It couldn't be further from the truth.. I don't want the hassle in my life? I don't know what's going on. Have I become asexual? Or.. Which is it.. I still see women and find them attractive.. Especially with the warmer weather and the smaller clothes appearing.. But the idea of getting involved with them? No thanks

I know I'm 100% straight.. But really can't be bothered, I closed my okcupid account.. People say you need to do what makes you happy so I am, shame it's not something a 31 year old should be doing

How pathetic it is to need other people. I'd much rather think of myself as being an eremite who shuns other people out of choice. But that would be bullshit. It's alway easier to feel part of the human race when there's someone there to vouch for you. The policeman stops you and says "What are you doing here?", and it's nice to be able to say that I'm here with X who'll confirm that I'm a human being.

Which admittedly makes me sound batshit crazy, but I'm not talking literaly, just trying to distil all the paranoia and alienation into one easily digested vol-au-vant. Yum Yum. My social apathy has just been an excuse to avoid social anxiety. Of course people are going to seem boring and shallow when you always keep them at a distance. The thought of always being alone scares me. If a tree falls in the woods and no-one is there to hear it then it might as well not have bothered existing at all. Well that sentence is wrong for several reasons but oh well.

I'm thinking that this was not a good weekend to be me! But at the same time, I'm not surprised. Same old, same old.

My Doctor said I had Leukopenia (too few white blood cells) but I've just noticed my new blood test request form says I have Leukocytosis (too many white blood cells). Yesterday my prescription was written all wrong. I'm wondering if anyone there knows what they're doing.

That as of Wednesday I'm old enough to post here now. And not even too terrified by that yet. My twenties were predominantly a pile of arse. Come at me, thirties!

I really wish my dad's gf would butt out of the housing discussions, she's got far too much to say for someone who's only been in the picture for 2+yrs. I'm not involved in anything neither, i'm just listening to them talking in the garden and it's getting on my nerves how much she's pushing .. it's idea after idea. This is the first time i've heard them talk at length about it. The annex idea is very favoured - well, a log cabin thing, in the garden.

I don't know how i feel about it... the whole situations been awkward at times, especially when she first came on the scene, i've become a lot less resistant to her, but they obviously want their own space.. they probably have had for quite some time, hence all the caravanning. I just feel me being in a 'big shed' in the garden is going to be weird. I'm not liking the idea of seeing her living here neither, i'd rather be elsewhere entirely. She'll have much more influence too and will no doubt have family and friends over cos my dad has already completely adopted her social circle - he didn't have much of his own anyway - and a log cabin only provides so much privacy, especially in the summer when they'll (no doubt) have bbq parties. She's on about getting a hot tub too ... yep.

Ugh.

The best scenario would be for my mum to move in with her (aging) dad, then i into her flat, but Mum kinda frowned and said no at that when i mentioned it midweek.

I don't know, it's such a mess. This has been on my head for quite some time now. I truly wish i was suicidal, that would cure all.

I haven't really considered whether i could afford to rent - 'i don't earn enough' - that's as far as i've thought, but really, it's just not doable on a shitty part-time job. Plus, with this job, there's no certainty, they get rid of you at the drop of a hat with no recourse. I've been working here for 3+yrs and i've seen so many people come and go, for various reasons ... i wouldn't ever like to depend on this job.

My mum lives in a 1-bedroom flat

^ It may still be worth looking into renting, a small studio flat perhaps? On a short-term lease. Could you pick up more hours at work? Or find a second part-time job?
