    Breaking Down

    Today at lunch, I literally broke down. I lost it. My friend had accidentally triggered it. She had asked me why I take things so harshly and why I say things back when **** get's said about me. I thought she was going against me and I lost it. I told her how I can't handle it no...

    So This Is What It's Like...

    to unravel. I've heard of people having 'breakdowns'. What does that mean? Is that when you sit at your computer and cry until your nose hurts and your eyes are puffy? Gee, I've been doing that a fair bit lately. Am I having a breakdown? At what point do you just close up shop? I...

    Well I Was When I Joined This Experience....

    and have broken down even more since but I hope bit by bit I'm putting myself back together again....I may be some time, but I'm gathering support, oh yes! I think I needed the breakdown in order to start the re-build.

    You're slipping away from me. A tear is slipping out of my eye, down my cheek. You're not texting me like you used to. I wait hours each day just for your name to pop up on my cell screen. I go nights wondering what's up. If everything's okay. I can tell, you're distancing...

    I honestly can't deal with life anymore,

    do I escape by death or drowning, or do I run away. As over dramatic as I sound there is truth to my words. I require someone's constant attention, someone who makes me feel safe and holds back my many insecurities. I only feel comfortable to do so with my best guy friend, he is...

    I Am Broken Down

    I found myself literally on my knees today in shock. These last few months have been bad, but these last few weeks have been agonizing. I've failed everyone, and I dont think there is anyway to fix it. If there is, I dont know how, and I doubt anyone wants to help me. Ive...

    Every Second Is A Fight For Survival

    EP sure has changed. It's almost foreign, but at the same time it's comforting to know that I am welcomed home, to the place where I can vent freely without being judged. To get advice when no one on the outside can understand me. Today I had a bit of a realization that my very...

    A Moment Of Pain

    Blah. I have failed. Failed to acquire a person who would comfort me. Failed to establish connections which would care for me. It’s so damn cold in here. Alone, with no-one to keep me warm, with no-one to breathe life into me. No-one will come, because I won’t call anyone...

    Every single time I think I'm okay.

    .. I break down. I'm not okay but at the same time I don't know what's really wrong with me. It's just a black hole of sadness. I hate it so much. I don't want to feel it anymore and I stay as positive as I can but sometimes it just doesn't work and I have no one to run to...
