    For Many Reasons

    Most of which will have stories in their own groups later on. I have been my own worse enemy really. My mind will not allow my heart to forget. My body will not let my mind. It is a vicious cycle that in 25 yrs I have not figured out how to end. A cycle that I fear will be...

    I feel so dysfunctional; I mean I'm not

    even sure what it's like to feel "fine". I'm either really happy or really down in the dumps, and all it takes it one trigger or one thing said a specific way that gets me to the other end of the spectrum. I hate being so unstable. I keep trying to convince myself I'll be okay...

    Most of the time I'm feeling calm and quite content. On general I think I'm happy with my life as it is. But, and that's a big but, when I get emotional I get really emotional! The worst thing is when I'm in love or having a crush. I'm then having some hard time trying to get...

    anyone else suffer from on/off depression?

    I'll have plenty of reasons to be happy and still find one thing that sends me on edge. I hide it from those I care about because I just feel like I'm burdening them. somehow I find more comfort in expressing my depression to a complete stranger that won't judge, I guess? it's...

    Yesterday

    Sitting in the car with him, explaining why what he's doing is wrong. Listening to his rationalizations, his excuses. Growing tired and weary of it all. Hearing the same promises all over again and wondering how much more of this I can take. I am feeling very alone, with no one...
