So sorry

I know I keep apologising but there is no good excuse for my absences. I gave in to depression and I just fell into only sharing on Facebook and not really sharing my feelings on anything. I am mainly using my I Pad and I just wasn't happy with the format of the livejournal application. Thank you lj for changing it all for the better. The picture is from Facebook and so pretty. It is way past my bedtime, so I will share more soon.

Absent yet again

I am sorry that I have been absent for so long. I do miss my livejournal. I was struggling to figure out why I couldn't add photos, but I see there have been improvements. I hope I still have a few friends left.

You Would Be a Pet Cat

Independent and aloof, you don't like to be dependent on anyone.
And as for other people, you can take them or leave them. You often don't care.
You live your life by your own rules. And you have deep motivations that no one truly understands.

Why you would make a great pet: You're not needy or greedy... unlike other four legged friends.

Why you would make a bad pet: You're not exactly running down to greet people at the door

What you would love about being a cat: Agility and freedom

What you would hate about being a cat: Being treated like a dog by clueless humans

Warriors for Innocence?

I am angry..... very angry and not with Live Journal. Who are these warriors who feel they have the right to hold witch hunts on the web? I applaud their motives..... paedophiles are an abomination and who of us wants to see children being targetted? I agree there are some very objectional sites out there..... that are still there. So while Live Journal has been smeared with propaganda.... these sites remain there! It strikes me that this blog group may find themselves targetting people that may not be offenders. They post photos and whilst I am not saying that any of those 'offenders' that are posted there are innocent..... this group is 'playing with fire'.
I am angered that these bloggers feel that they are the ONLY ones out there to save the children? Do they want a medal or an award for service? Aren't there agencies out there who are supposed to be monitoring and dealing with offenders?
To my way of thinking this is a vigilante group full of their own self importance. Maybe their motives are sound..... but surely what happened in Salem should stand as a warning. A lot of innocent women were hanged as witches.
I tried to leave a message at their site..... but it wasn't displayed.... so I am putting it here on Live Journal. These people may be genuine in their desire to help..... but they are not the only people who care about the welfare of children! I have no patience for vigilantes or witch-hunters.

I am an Australian.... I spell pedophile as paedophile'

Feeling better despite the heat

The heat was so bad today..... over 42 degrees Celsius.... over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.... and that is definitely not good for anyone who has MS. I just couldn't sit here and type today and I had huge plans to write and share. I was still very upset over the way that Minister was treated, I couldn't sleep so at 3am I wrote to the newspaper. I am not at all confident that it will be printed and I don't care, it helped me feel better and I did get a few hours sleep. I said my piece and my mind could finally relax.
I understand that many people are of the opinion that I should just accept what happened to me (the bullying and harassment)..... but how can I do that without anyone to at least hear me out? Acceptance of a situation such as this is a process, it takes time and it can be made easier when you are allowed to have help to deal with it. I worked 30 years as a Registered Nurse, I made my fair share of mistakes..... but I worked very hard for the elderly people I cared for. The treatment I got was uncalled for and unfair. A lot of people are bullied and they face an uphill battle to get help and I think it's wrong.
That Minister was the only person who bothered to listen and that was such a huge gift to me. He was honest with me, saying he may not be able to help me at all..... and you know that was fine by me! I am sad for him now.... but there is little I can do!
Please do not think that I am wallowing in complete self pity over this..... it's just a cruel way to end your career.
I am making the best of it now, I have no other choice..... it just angers me that society buries it's head in the sand over this issue.
I went to another blog site and joined it yesterday, but after checking it all out, I decided that it was not even a quarter as good as Live Journal. So I cancelled that account....... I'll never go back to My Space!
In myself.... I am feeling a lot happier with life...... just wish it wasn't so hot!

In danger of another pity party?

Try as I might last night..... I couldn't seem to lift myself out of the Depression! I was very much in danger of starting another Pity Party, but I decided that I was going to be brave and try and see a few positives in my life! I'm not too sure that it worked, but I avoided driving anyone crazy and that is something.
One of the reasons that I was upset over the politician's court case.... was the fact that he was helping me! For the past 2 years I have been battling Post Traumatic Stress due to the fact I was bullied and harassed out of my last 2 Nursing jobs. I tried every which-way to get justice and get someone to hear me! No-one wanted to know! I wrote letters and searched on-line.... but I got nowhere. This MP phoned me just before Christmas and told me that he would help me if he could. He wrote a letter on behalf of me to the minister of health. I thought that finally something was happening. Now I feel shattered and scared that once more my dilemma will be ignored. I am tempted to ask "WHY ME?"
There is not a lot I can do about this..... and I need to move on away from this.... I know that is true! However it's hard after working 30 years as a Registered Nurse to end up 'thrown out' and unfairly treated.

An Update on 'Setting a Precedent'

An update on my blog entry yesterday...... the precedent sadly seems to have been set. The Member of Parliament was found by the court guilty of assault. For stopping a woman from suiciding! I'm just so angry as he was my local member and he was the only MP to talk to the people. He's out of the party...... and I feel left out in the cold. I'll explain more when I feel better.
