  • Mood:
So I read this article in the NYTimes today about how the Atkins diet was right all along, and the medical industry that has been pushing low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets is wrong. I feel kind of cheated by this, especially as reading through the whole article, I see possible connections to how my mom got diabetes. My parents trained me all my life to not eat a lot of meat, but instead eat bread and other starchy foods. Vegetables and fruits were consumed occasionally, but I didn't like them much, and I still don't see how they work as a snack, only as a side dish to a meal.

I continue to be bummed out over the lack of jobs. Stupid recession making all the jobs go away. Stuipid not having marketable skills. I can run a cash register, and it seems nowadays that's about all I'm good for. I'm intelligent, but I don't have enough knowledge in any one technical area to do me any good, not to mention the fact that I still don't have transportation. I'm repeating myself.

I'm stuck in a rut and I don't know how to get out of it. I'm tired of the way my life is going, but I can't see anything better on the horizon. nightskyre is always asking me why I'm depressed. I can't find anything to tell him anymore - I just wish my life was better in ways I can't change at this point.
