The Samaritans

Sometimes it's good to have someone to talk to who isn't involved, isn't going to judge or anything, even if there's not really anything they can actually do. Yesterday I needed it, because I was worried sick about someone I love, and tried the Samaritans, since I didn't know where else to turn at the time. They took a while to answer but they helped. And just writing about things helped too.

Good things

Looking forward to a fun evening out. And feeling perky because I've just had a pretty productive afternoon by my standards lately. W00t! Oh and mozilla 1.3 works with LJ under windows too, so now I have a recent version instead of a really clunky old one.
