    I'm doing that thinking thing again,

    I'm afraid. I usually walk into my apartment after forcing myself to get up and go to my classes and break down upon closing my door. Well, alas, dear readers, the same has happened today. I decided to take a shower because it's helped in the past. When my mother passed away, I...

    It's tough trying to stay positive.

    It's tough trying to believe in yourself, convincing yourself that you're as capable as everyone else when little thoughts of inferiority creep in so often. It's tough when you know how to help yourself, or at least make things better, but when you try to make things better...

    I've been happy all last week

    which was weird because for a really long time before that I was considering suicide once again. This happens a lot- polar feelings from one week to the next. And my teacher whom I talk to noticed I was happy and was really happy about that so now I'm afraid that now that's I've...

    .. I miss the family I had.. When everyone would gather and smile and enjoy each other.. But now. We are all separated from each other.. My mom let me go to my dad after being abused.. It hurts.. And if people think this is a lie I'm sorry.. This darkness inside me won't go away...

    I am so unhappy in my marriage.

    I feel trapped. My husband is neglectful to me and my young children. The only attention we get from him is negative. I just don't know what to do.

    Emotionally. Physically.

    Mentally. Everything. I am freaking cooked. I do it to myself. Sometimes I feel like putting out fires is my only job, or preventing the onslaught of ones to come. I have to remember I'm doing this for a greater cause and that these efforts will pay off. I'm giving everything...

    Why do girls always continue to love

    and want the guys who hurt them? Here I am hoping to hear from someone who supposedly loves me, who for 3 days has been barely talking to me and ignoring me. Talking is pointless, because it turns into an argument, an argument I can never win because I'm always "wrong". I feel...

    Do you ever wish that you had someone

    who you could pour your heart & soul out to? :( However when you try to, you are just so drained emotionally from everything that is going on in your head that you physically do not have the energy anymore :(

    Emotionally dead. I have been
