    My First Thought Is Of Death.

    I was living in blissful naivety of death all my life, but since my best friend dropped dead with no warning my first thought whenever someone is late or doesn't answer the phone is that they could be in trouble or dead. A month ago, a friend vanished during a party, my first...

    Please....not Yet....

    I'm constantly worried about my dad passing away.  My dad will turn 62 the day after Christmas.  Right now he is weighing the most he ever has...which I would approximate to be about 300 lbs.  He is constantly complaining of his legs & knees hurting.  You...

    Recent events have awakened me to my need

    for closer connections in my life. My current and past lifestyles have seriously affected my body, and I want a different more fulfilling path. I want to keep those that are close to me... and the ones that aren't so close to me, keep them around just in case they could...

    Well, sh!t... one of my worst fears has come

    true. I am picky about choosing friends because of this fear. I only have enough close to me to count on one hand & now I might have lost one. We were so close. I knew when you moved from this small town to city after bigger city that we'd lose touch eventually. It's been a...

    Funny how you're afraid to lose a certain

    person then you end up losing them. You become paranoid and try to cling to the ones you have left. It's sad how you grow a bond with someone just to have it broken due to death. I never really understood the whole process of losing loved ones till it happened to me many times...

    My Gardian Angels.

    I have 2 old teachers whom I love dearly. One is an elderly lady who teaches in a multi-age class (1st - 6th) She writes poems, stories, plays piano, and plays about magic realms. I adore her, the way her light blue eyes flash when she laughs or when she's telling a story, when...

    And I'm Living In A Truck.

    I have lost everyone. My mom, my dad, even my sister. The only thing I have left is a truck and a little hope. My mom died when I was two. My dad couldn't handle the fact that she was gone so we moved around a lot. Everywhere we went, something reminded him of her and we had to...

    Except I already have.

    The best friends I managed to keep throughout high school and some college...they are all gone. Of course, I blame no one but myself. I had a best friend in elementary and middle school who I practically lost all contact with when the two of us went to separate high schools and...

    I would take my mom as an example,

    and a really GOOD one too. Ever since I had been into my paranoia disorder, I just keep disappointing her and getting her worried more each time. She has done a lot of things for me to try and calm me down and all I do there is just sitting around bringing back those...

    By love I don't mean guys

    or anything...and I don't mean losing people to death. But I am afraid of losing my friends and family, that they will stop caring about me or I will do something to mess up our relationship. Once years ago I had a very close friend and we had falling out and she started...

    I say I'm afraid, but it always happens doesn't

    it? People grow apart and we move on. I guess that's why I wait so long to form a bond with people. When they leave, it's easier to forget them and not be sad if you never see them again. If I get too close, then I always imagine our reunions or develop feelings for them while...

    I have always been afraid of losing people I love.. But that's just because I have been hurt so many times, and people just leave me.. I still have times when I just break down crying, and at those times I just wish that there would be someone to tell me everything would be okay...
