    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Gotta Learn to Deal.

    I am lonely anyhow. Just seeing people online makes me feel crappy. So I'm just gunna spend some time away. People don't talk to me, and this loneliness is eating at me anyhow, so I might as well learn to deal.

    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...

    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...

    Escape From The Madness!

    Although I don't want to withdraw (cut ties with) from my "friends", I feel like I must if I want to start over. I've recently decided that it'd be best if I found and make new friends, friends who are true friends.
