    I read this about a year ago

    when my dad passed away and it was unbelievably helpful. Thank you whoever wrote it! Alright, here goes. I'm old. What that means is that I've survived (so far) and a lot of people I've known and loved did not. I've lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers...

    I Think Its My Grandpa

    Lately, I've been kind of sad. Every time someone asks me what is wrong I always break down and cry. It always goes back to my grandpa's death but my friend thinks it is something much deeper than just that. I have no idea of how to figure out what is causing this because I...

    My friend has been gone

    for a month or so. I feel it my fault. No, it WAS my fault. We were arguing over something stupid. It was the last thing we said to each other. THIS is the reason I don't talk to people, have relationships with anyone. I always end up hurting them in the long run.
