    Prisoner of Ignorance

    People tell me I need to get out more. I physically can't, access for wheelchairs here sucks. Thank you to all who have suggested I "write to my local member". I am a leader of the disability community here and constant seminars and lobbying has done nothing to open...

    Hi Scarlett Here

     I work as a psychic advisor and am very good at it. I can tune into people quickly and I know if they are hurting, lying etc.   The reason I am often alone at home is because I meet people who are too needy,  they want to latch onto me and ring me or come over just want...

    Painful Interactions With Others

    Hi, I guess I'm not the only one.  I thought.."maybe there's actually a support group for people like me".  It's as though I love people too much and when out in the world the seemingly harshness of it all stuns me.  I am actually a psychiatric nurse...

    Virtually Speaking Or Reality Speaking?

    I'd say I have a nasty tendency of being both. I love socializing and talking until forever with friends and new people I meet. Then this overwhelming need to wave a magic wand and disappear pops in. Possibly anxiety? It's always at really weird times too. I'm laughing so hard my...

    I really don't have a life anymore!

    Since I separated from my husband more than 10 years ago, I have become a virtual recluse. Let me explain.... On the day of my birth to the most beautiful parents, I grew up to be a young adult believing that my life was already mapped out for me. I took an interest in music...

    I love my mom, but I simply can't think of anything positive about her. In my mind, she's controlling and judgmental, which she kind of isn't. She's very nice.
