    Because the world doesn't look right to me.

    There are hungry people who need to be fed, homeless folks who need a place to stay. I can't understand how property can be private. I thought the earth belonged to all those who walked it. Money doesn't really exist, and neither does time. I think we've been brainwashed into...

    I get in very self destructive moods sometimes.

    I want to binge eat, or buy a pack of cigarettes, or be mean to people that care about me. But somehow it's so great. I feel powerful. I want to **** **** up, inflict pain on myself and other people, and it makes me feel so good.

    among other things. It's getting to the point that it seriously interferes with my daily activities since I can't get anything done if I feel like I'm going to die. I just want them to go away.
