    Withdrawing Happily Almost.

    I have always been comfortable with my own company, to the point my family think's it was extreme the amount of time I spent alone. Though I am not and never have been "Anti social". They people I usually socialised with, like my sister T, Her Boyfriend M, My friend L...and Bambi...

    Gotta Learn to Deal.

    A Scream In The Dark.

    I want personal closure. I want a job. I want greater fortitude and belief in my own existence and my future. I want to dream of something greater. I want to believe there is something greater for me. I want to not just say **** it and give up so much. I want to not be who I...

    College

    I don't know if I want to bother with this. I'm a first year student and at first I was happy to go. The only thing that changed was the school and having to give up moving away from what I feel is my biggest problem; this city. What would I do if I can't do this? Suppose I could...

    I've Been Out of It For a Long Time, Actually

    I Need to Be Alone

    Sometimes  I  need  to be  alone  so  I  can  hear  myself  think. It  give's  me  strength  and  gives  me  direction.

    Repair - Regroup - Rejoin

    Withdrawing is therapeutic. It is my way of re-examining my inner status. It is not depressing or suppressing but rather rejuvenating and empowering. Once I am in a settled state of mind I emerge with a renewed perspective and a better resolve.

    I'm having bad opium withdrawals.

    I haven't been sleeping much for the past 2-3 weeks and all I want to do is go crazy right now. I'm so anxious I could jump in front of a bus and not care.

    Watch Me Disappear....

    So yesterday was a big day, meeting a new psych and going through the motions. I sit down and he asks the most difficult question first. "So tell me, why are you here?" How do you sum up years of pain and torment into a simple sentence? You don't. That's why they always have...

    Lucid.

    The world feels as if it's racing ahead of me every second. I feel that as it races, it begins to crumble. To decay and fester in rotten horrid poison. Covering everything like ill paint, I've decided to not stare into this picture. The gazes from the inhabitants in the poison...

    Self Serving And Resentment.

    As of recent, I've began to systematically push other people away and out of my way. I havent had a real chance to say how or why I feel this way, so I figured that EP was the best alternative. Simply put, I am at a point of mixed feelings in how I see people. I have lost a lot...
