    I have a twin bro/ best friend from the womb,

    lol. We do most everything together, and tho we fight once in a while we make each other laugh all the time. He's crazy and funny as hell, and I'm crazier. He can make me come Out of a sadness and have me laughing in a minute. I don't know if everything they say about twins...

    He passed away 5 years ago

    and I was there when it happened. He meant the world to me. Is there anybody in your life you don't think you could live without? It's like living without that person. In some ways I don't think I really 'get it.' I'll always be waiting for him to come home. Man, I miss him.

    And I miss him so much it makes me sick.

    .. My heart hurts... It hurts so bad... I can't stop it, no matter what I do, it just hurts... I can't even explain it in words, it's so painful... I want to scream, I want to cry, I want someone to hold me, I want someone to listen... I want him back. I want to hear his raspy...

    I have a twin brother

    and we look and are nothing alike. He's really loud and always in the center of attention while I'm quiet and like to be by myself. He's more about himself while I feel horrible if I kill a bug. But even with are differences he's my best friend and we get along great ( most of...

    I love being a twin. At my school,

    we are looked down on, discriminated, talked about, hated..all of that. For what reason? I don't know. Maybe it's because we're twins and they want that same experience..that's why we find it hard to make friends because people are always giving us that hateful look or show some...

    I'm a fraternal twin with a twin brother just a

    hair older than me ;) He's pretty great, and my best friend. Even though we live a couple hours apart now, we've definitely discussed moving to the same area once we're done with school. Of course the little smartypants wants to get his PhD so it might be a while LOL
