In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Hi, My real name is Gina and I live in South Texas. I am 45 years old and have 2 daughters, 27 and 22. My oldest is married and blessed me with 3 beautiful grandbabies whom I adore! She really doesnt care for me right now but I know in time she will come to see who I really am for her. My youngest is a student and full time nanny. I have worked as a chemist for the last 20 years doing shift work in the petroleum/petrochemical industry. I was also the safety coordinator for 3 of our labs. I was laid off of work in March of 2010 and gained alot more weight. I reported sexual harassment on a co-worker, 3 months later he died and I was let go 2 weeks after that. I lost everything, my house, truck, my daughter had to move home because I couldnt pay for school anymore. She attends a Jr. college now (which is ok). Then I found out who my friends really were and which family members were willing to help me. I divorced in 2000 so I did this on my own. I came to my mothers to take care of her because she was sick and cried when I left. I returned and decided to continue school and stay with her awhile. In the long run I realized just how much she missed her children because I see so much happiness in her now than I have in a long time. I also learned how much I needed her as well. I have been happier, I dont cry 8 times a day anymore. I havent cried now in about 2 weeks. Dont get me wrong, I know I am still depressed. My oldest doesnt call me or hasnt told the kids to call me. I deal with that alot and then try to keep busy so I dont ruin my day. My youngest has been my therapist. I know I have to heal myself before I can help anyone else. So here I am. ......taking one step at a time...
