Closing this down


I'm going to close my journal. I don't want to go private.

So the only thing I could think of is to just stop writing in my own journal.
It'll be a lot better for me in my life!

Good Luck to you.  I'm sorry that journaling has caused you more pain in your life.   Linda

arlenes627 said...

I can only input that for me, after reuniting after years with my best bud from high school who married at 19; the reunification just was not the same and ended up in aggravation on both our parts and her calling ME a wallower while I was going thru a great anxiety that I may be living out on the street if I could not meet my rent. (My b/f has now moved in and things are great).

Basically, people do not want to hear the same 'things' over and over again. They cannot really feel your pain.  People are like that. It's as tho, if you/me/anyone is sick, we are primarily on our own and the purpose of the journal if you have one should really be for you only.  If anyone reads it, let them read.  They should not be disrespectful of you with your disease, anxieties and frustrations.

Sometimes I just don't tell anyone anything at all, let them think I'm fine or they'll call me a neurotic, so it's betw. me and my doc and my best friend only.

This journal is for you. You can use it to vent and to have it on paper, online; others may read it since it is public, but they should be helpful or hold their tongue.

sincerely,
arlene

I'm very sorry you feel that way, Lisa, because I do think it's a means of letting off steam for you. If this is the result of negative feedback, then some people ought to be rather ashamed of themselves. Hope you will reconsider, if not, then I can only wish you well.

specialadyfink said...

Geez-I hate to see you go.But why don't you think about doing a private one -without readers so you can still log what's going on with you-how you feel and your thoughts.It is good therapy for you......
I'm still gonna send you stuff when I find ....ok....ok!!
**BIG HUGS***

sweetestsin52605 said...

Kinda sad you have to do it because other people are playing childish games with you and are too scared to see the truth. This is the only way you are able to write in anything. If you were to write that entry in a regular paper journal, that would have probably taken you an hour. Oh well, whatever makes others happy so you stay happy. Sad! See this is why I never really like anyone. You get too close to them, and STAB ya in the back!
Love ya

Hi Lisa,
I am so sorry you feel you have to close your journal.  I did e-mail you once, and you did not respond.  I understand now, why you didn't.  You probably thought I was a troll, too.  I am so sorry if you felt that way.  I also have Fibromyalgia, and felt a connection to you.  Please take of yourself, and I will keep you in my prayers.

whoopiepoopsie said...

Lisa,
I don't know who you're having a problem with but I guess you have to do what is right for you.  It seems a shame you're letting one person dictate what you do, but maybe this will give you more time to concentrate on getting healthier.

ajquinn354 said...

Lisa so sorry to hear that you are closing your site, will keep you listed in case you change your mind.  Just ignore those who send messages that you care for.  Think with all that is going on in your life health wise, etc. that your journal has been a good way for you to connect with caring folks, so hope you'll reconsider closing it as it's a good way to get your concerns, frustrations out by wiriting how you are feeling and doing, etc.  God bless you dear.....so many of us truly care about you and you'll be missed if you shut down your site.   Arlene (AJ)  

jmoqueen said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you are stopping to write in your journal.  It is so wrong that it has come to this ~ just remember that the people who matter your friends all love and care for you xx

pamal3 said...

Hello Lisa, This is the first time I have stopped by here and Wow! What a fabulous journal. It's such a shame you are going to stop. Why don't you at least sleep on it? Look at all these wonderful people who obviously love you and your journal to bits. There will always be people out there that will go out of their way to hurt us, but if we stick together, in a united front and refuse to be intimidated, they will soon get bored. You have a wonderful talent for writing and although I am being a little bolshy and over persuasive, I think you should at least think about it. Give me the pleasure of popping back here and enjoying your stories. Pop over to mine and you can get a giggle at some of my earlier entries when I was rather naughty! lol. I've got my finger's crossed that you will change your mind. Love Pam xx

Hi Lisa,
Sorry to hear this.
Really I am.
Last week I sent out email announcing my
"Maybe" journal as I had been maybe thinking of starting one.
As you see, I never did do it...
I would never want to get mean mail
It would be hurtful.
Is that what happened with yours?
Hoping you will change your mind.
If not, your the boss of your Journal & many things.
Love you,
Donna

(((LIsa)))  I'm behind in journals and had to delete.  Came by today.  Sorry you're always being hurt.  Being in physical pain doesn't help either.  I'm sorry you are closing down but I know you have to do what you have to do.  Keep in touch hun.  I care.
Hugs,

shamelesssuzyq said...

Now you have it....well over 30 comments. I suspect you'll be back writing like usual just because for some strange sick reason you needed attention. Just like when you said you were gay! Again...attention seeking.
People are onto your game. Just remember that.


vishy2004 said...

Hi Lisa,

Sorry to see you stop writing. Is there anything that we, at AOL Journals, can do to help ? You can send email to journalseditor@aol.com if you want to share some thoughts in private.

seraphoflove9001 said...

***This is to Shameless.....What does anything that you just wrote have anything to do with closing down my journal? It's people like you that bully other journalers to quit, go privet or even to stop and delete there journals. I don't care what you think of me because "I" know the truth. I know how I feel. And there is a reason that I am closing it down for right now.! I do not know you and you do not know me! You have no right to come in my journal and this is MY space....and think that are allowed to say such things! This is my journal and my space and I demand respect when anyone is in my space! Do you get it?!

gehi6 said...

just came back to check on you when I saw you had not posted an entry for quite a few days.  I know you are really struggling right now with your health and do not need any negative remarks, too. I just hope you won't delete your journal, and see if your health gets better and you feel like writing again.  Until then I hope you rest well and have some fun with that darling little grandson.  Everyone of you is going to be missed.  Gerry

dca721 said...

Lisa,
I am so sorry to hear this.
Remember when I sent you the email that I was considering a journal?
Maybe 2-3 weeks ago?
I thought about it, and decided not to, for the same reasons you speak of.
BUT,
Don't let "shameless" be  or is it shameful? Either way, the name fits!
Block her & write your journal.
I miss you.
Hope to see an "Entry" soon.
Love,
Donna

hugsdoodlewacky said...

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((LISA)))))))))))))))))))))))))))Lisa I do hope and pray you will come back.I miss seeeing your entrys.I love hearing aabout your life and I miss seeing the videos you put into your Journal.I know its easy said than doing it,but I think you should just ignore the person,everytime they comment on your Journal,delete that person and block thwm.You should be bale to write in your Journal,to let everything out.I do the same thing,let people like that get to me,but I am trying to ignore them.Please come back.You have so mnay people put there who love and care for you and miss you and they dont want you to delete your Joural.You have alot of devoted fans.PLEASE COME BACK AND DONT LEAVE.Have a good day.

kirkbyj05 said...

Dear Lisa,

I am so sorry you have been unwell and that you have been upset dreadfully by this awful troll.
Please don't go.  I so enjoy reading about you, your daughter and grandson.  I haven't been around for a while because of my brothers recent death but I just want you to know that you are loved and cared for very much by many ' Truly Nice' and caring JLanders.
By all means take a rest and get over your recent illness,  I know you suffer so much and keep most of that to yourself.  My ex-sister-in-law has fibromyalgia and she is bedridden a lot of the time because of the pain.  You are so brave as you have so many other things going wrong on top of that.
I will pray fr you and hope that you will soon feel well and strong enough to come back again.
Take care.
Love
Jeanie xxxxxxx!

baileyb65 said...

Lisa,  Its probably a GOOD thing you are closing your journal.  You've shown all of us that you demand more attention than anyone can give you.  First its your health, well anyone with real health issues doesn't have oxygen and cigarettes in the same room.  Then it was the gay issue.  What a waste the hunky therapist is going to be on you seeing as now you're a raging Lesbo.  Is your last name Whiner, because that seems to be the one calling you're good at.  Best of luck in the future and just remember in a few weeks you'll be forgotten by all of your journal readers and life will go on.  I think by then you'll be back online seeking the attention you so desperately desire, but by then the people that haven't yet figured you out will.  All the best!

Bailey

seraphoflove9001 said...

*****This is to baileyb65........! How in the world did you come up with such nonesince? Please, tell me. I do NOT seek out anyone for anything! Do you see that red X in the right hand upper corner.....if you don't like what I write then use that big red x!!! OK?
Lisa

baileyb656 said...

You've just proved my point Babe!  while you're sitting there having a cigarette, why don't you search for the "spell check" feature on your computer, while I look for the red X.  Perhaps when you're done with that this number will be of service 1-800-Dentist.

Peace out,
Bailey

Why did you change your name baileyb656?

Sorry to hear you leaving Jland. I enjoy reading your journal.

inquestoftruth said...

You know....if you don't give internet bullies any attention at all, they move on.    Have you given any thought to this being someone you actually know?
At any rate, if someone is bothering you, can't you report them to AOL?  
~Meg

zoepaul6968 said...

Bailey,go get a life,try working instead of sitting on your computer all day moaning at others,Lisa is here because she wants to be,not at your behest,so what? You only changed your name because you cant sign into your other account eh? Did someone complain about you? I wonder why,have you ever said anything constructive in your life? Or perhaps done anything constructive? ......I guess we will have to wait and see for that little gem of an answer,till then do us all a big favour,go back under the rock you emerged from and for christs sake get a bloody hobby...like playing with the traffic !!

preciousone25 said...

OMGosh.... I haven't been here in awhile, Lisa, sorry about that!!  I can't believe that you will let this creep determine whether or not you have a journal here.  Please know that you have alot of friends in Jland, and if Bailey doesn't want to be one of them, he/she knows where the red 'x' is.  Don't let them get the best of you.
