    I am not American. I am not English.

    .... I was born in southern France, but I am half Italian and half Irish, effectively.... Yes, I have a little French blood also... You will understand English is my third language!

    People do not experience the same degrees of

    I know I am not like others in many aspects.

    Even if I shouldn't, I think of myself as taboo. I think apart from many; including my family. I want and am trying not to think in such a manner, but want to not see myself as unacceptable. There are thoughts of just falling into things in order to "fit in"; to create someone...

    Slowly she dies everyday,

    I have some things about me, that are so strange, I don't know if it's even possible for someone else to share them. But I'm far too shy to mention some of those. Not to mention I don't even notice some of the things I do until I really think about it, or look back on it.
