    My wife has me chained to the sink. Am I a slave
    monkey11

    Nope! I think you're lucky, you have the food right there at hand, if the chain is long enough to reach the fridge. What more could you ask for? :)

    An indentured servant. Stop fooling around here and get back to the sink.

    Worry and I am trying and praying hard to let go and let God. I am working on it always.

    Worry comes from trying to control things we can't. Stop doing it and you will be much happier. :)

    Lots easier said than done my friend......

    Agree about it being so much harder to do than to say! I went to an anxiety management course and they said never tell people to "snap out of it" or to "stop worrying". It's something that needs to be worked on!

    Are you overweight, Pam ?
    IamPamela313

    No! Why you ask?
    My big mouth. Constantly offering to lend a hand, and then I have to hustle to get my stuff done on time.
    daren1

    my mouth often times exceeds my brain compacity as well
    I'm a worrier too, and I try to remember, don't worry about what you can't control.
    daren1

    we got enough worries for today to surpass tomorrow...
    Money I suppose... I also donate time to serve others and consider my self a slave to God or a servant of God. But, I have to work to pay the bills if I didn't have to work, I would gladly give it up and find something else more constructive to do with my time.
    Time :/
    daren1

    time waits for no one..
    To my pets,but it is a labour of love.

    I am a slave to Nicorette Gum. If there’s none around, I go into a panic.I think there’s much more to the drug Nicotine than the medics know and understand.


    I have ADHD amd that is possibly an explanation. 


    Side Bar: There are many people who have ADD or ADHD. I believe it’s the cause of divorce, drug addiction, and much unhappiness.  Once it’s diagnosed and medicated, life goes well. I spent a year on the computer learning about it and I started an ADD group in my home. Picture in my paper, even! After what I learned what is was, I no longer needed the meds. (about two years)

    daren1

    i put down the cigerattes for ten years then just started again recently..i hope to conqur this addiction.
    Okay then Oliver I am Oliver's slave.......
    IamPamela313

    lucky, Oliver. lol!
    "THE(PANDA)!SURELY,YOU"JEST!" (L.&L.O.L.s)!
    My chickens are convinced I am there to treat them to every leftover scrap of food in the house …and they are right. Also the cats know, beyond all doubt, that I am there to serve them. Then there is the grass, the pidgins, the song birds and crows who all expect to be feed in the morning and remind me of my duty by pecking on my windows if I am 5 minuets late with their breakfast. The neighbors would complain if I didn’t maintain my yard in pristine order. The garbage man would cuss me out for trying to cheat him out of a job if my garbage was not delivered to the curbing plastic bags. Then there is the car mechanic, he flips me the bird the day I am over due for an oil change. The barber calls me a F***ing hippie if I’m late to his chair where he delights in cutting my hair while telling me the town gossip and string of jokes. It just goes on and on day after day and I wouldn’t have it another way.

    We are all a slave to a part truth part 'accepted lie to ourselves' living.  Truth sets us free from ourselves.

    hi daren 1 i am a slave to allha god in islam
