    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...

    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.

    Perhaps For The Best?
