This is my first diary. I volunteered to write a WYFP diary because this is a series that comforts me even when I have problems I cannot express here - and of course when I can.  I am so touched by the care and concern everyone here shows each other.

WYFP is our community's Saturday evening gathering to talk about our problems, empathize with one another, and share advice, pootie pictures, favorite adult beverages, and anything else that we think might help. Everyone and all sorts of troubles are welcome. May we find peace and healing here. Won't you please share the joy of WYFP by recommending?

Anyway, this time I do have a (small) problem I want to express.  Sometimes I feel as if people close to me play me like a violin. I am there for them, but they are not there when I need them in turn.  Seems I have some boundaries to adjust.  

Anyway, thankfully I am in good health, recently started a new job I enjoy, and I just got married - last month (eloped - Justice of the Peace).  The last time I shared a FP with this forum was when I was still doing the job from hell.  So that situation is over, thank God.

What is going on with everyone else?  I am so glad this place is here for sharing problems of all kinds, getting perspective, support, and sometimes even solutions, as well as a place to share the good news that is happening in our lives.

Thanks for letting me contribute my first Daily Kos diary to this forum.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
