    I Need Help

    I really am, like seriously am. This isnt a story where we were married for years on end or have any kids. This is a story of a screwed up love triangle because I can't choose even though the choice is an easy one. My ex and I dated back in high school for one year and three...

    I Saw Him Again Today

    He came to see me after I'd been calling him the last few days. I'd been so depressed, I was feeling so low, even just this morning. It's a miracle how he can lift me up out of my depression just with his presence. But I know this feeling won't last. Once this "high"...

    He's Like a Drug

    My ex - I'm still hung up about my ex. It's like I need him to make me feel good, in a way that nothing and nobody else can. The more I see him the more I want to see him. If he's late calling me or coming to see me I get huge anxiety levels and am...

    It's weird because, normally

    when you no longer have something or someone in your life, you move on. But it seems the longer my ex has been gone, the crazier I get. He's taken control over my mind. I have a very vivid imagination I guess, and it's like I see him around me regardless of where I am, I create...
