    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...

    I feel like I can't breathe.

    I don't know who to trust anymore. One minute I'm fine and the text, I want to die. I feel like I'm not being heard by those I'm suppose to trust. And I feel like the ones I'm suppose to trust, are making things worse. I hate what I see, when I look at myself in the mirror...

    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.

    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...
