    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...

    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...

    Declining And Rapidly

    I am on the verge of falling off a cliff into a bottomless pit of psychosis. I am getting extremely overwhelmed with daily life and my mind is shutting down. I have thoughts and they can not stay planted long enough before the tornado comes and carries them away. I can't think...

    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.

    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 .

    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...

    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...
