    Ever since this girl first walked into our

    school for the first time, I couldn't take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn't the only one gazing at her beauty. Through my mind I was thinking "you know what, I'm gonna try to talk to her, I need to man up, I need to know how to talk to a girl and here's my first...

    Sometimes I think I'm having a breakdown.

    The hurt overwhelms me and take over. My doctor put me on Prozac, but I guess it hasn't kicked in yet. I can't shake the depressed feelings I have and the stupid anxiety attacks are ridiculous.

    So I'm in the middle of a breakdown right now.

    I don't have any real friends I can call, I just have my unreliable self and my immaginary company. Special thanks to social networks of course.

    I'm Giving Up...

    It is official, I have no character at all. I tried to go cold turkey on all my meds at the same time, because my parents say that A) all my problems come from my meds and B) if you’re a strong person you don’t need medical support. Well, it turns out I’m not a strong...

    Perhaps For The Best?

    Sometimes, you have to break down to build yourself back up into something stronger. Trying to build upon a shaky foundation will usually result in no progress. But for sure, I need to either break through or break down. I feel that this is what's keeping me from making any sort...

    I feel bad about myself.

    .. And its getting bad. I try to talk to people about it but they just shrug it off, and that makes me feel even worse. I've even pulled away slightly but nobody has noticed... I feel unimportant and unwanted everywhere I go. I could disappear and it'd be barely noticeable.

    It's Always Like This

    My aunt is the cause of my break downs. That might sound harsh, blaming another person for my problems, but it's true. I never had this problem until i lived with her. I never hated myself, or lacked confidence , i wasn't so weak-willed and terrified of the most mundane...

    How do you get over the fact

    that your husband has a female co worker that has a mouth like a pig and you have seen some inappropriate emails from her to him and another male co worker . He swears nothing is going on and admits emails were wrong .
