    I am serious, I will feel one thing

    Stability Is Just An Illusion

    I am both emotionally, mentally and even physically unstable. I smile while my heart cries. I cry when my heart smiles. I am bipolar and have PMDD, so my moods are unpredictable. And I have one leg longer than the other, amoung other deformities, so all it takes it a breeze to...

    Hi I'm a regular outgoing guy.

    However I'm always either happy as a pig in muck or so low I can't be bothered being awake. I've always cried at sad movies and have bouts of unbelievable elation and silliness. I've always thought I was just highly strung bit after reading some stuff on here I'm starting to...

    Words Hurt.

    Today is April 9, 2012. Today my brother called me a ***** and a ****....I didn't think words could hurt me. Simple words can make me hurt? How is this possible? I fight everyday to avoid cutting again...and all he wants to do is try and hurt me. He always tells me that he's here...

    Things I Need To Repeat.

    Don't cut. Don't relapse. It's okay. Everything will be fine. She'll stay. Your mom will care one day. They'll stop talking bad about you. They'll stop lying to you. Your friends will be there. Don't give up again. Breathe. Youre okay.

    I feel that I need some help.

    In high stress moments I catch myself having suicidal thoughts at times. I used to cut myself during my childhood. I thought about it today but I just got drunk just to cope

    I always cry, I try to laugh it off

    but anything that I do wrong or the smallest thing happens the waterworks come on, I can't stop it. I just curl up in a ball and stay alone.

    Caffeine - My Emotion Surpresser

    I'm 21 now, and through my life, certain things have happened that have, in a sense, over-sensatized my emotions. So now, almost anything remotely sad  can cause a reaction that results in a breakdown. Too much irritation can cause a horrible outburst of rage. Luckily, I'm able...

    From one day to the next,

    I have never been able to back up how I felt about something from the previous day. I could be Eeyore and minutes later I could have a smile that would even put Jack Nicholson to shame - It's honestly impressive. Yes, I have a basic set of morals that will never change and I'll...

    I Just Have To Write This Down

    A contractor came to repair my the roof of my house just a moment ago. While he was stepping into my house, he did not take off his shoes. You see, in Malaysia, one doesn't wear shoes into the house. The most is, we switched to clean slippers. Obviously I provided a pair of...

    I used to be so comfortable living my life. Then I got into a lot of trouble in 2001 and my life has been a nightmare ever since. I try so hard to stay positive and feel good about life, but the only stable emotion is depression. It's so easy to maintain, I don't have to worry...

    Honestly, I am so done with a lot of things

    lately and I'm almost always depressed or thinking about dying or suicide. I wish I wasn't like that and I feel like that there wouldn't be any difference in anyone's life if I was gone.

    "I am emotionally unstable".  These 4 words describe me to a T.  My moods make me feel like I have been going through menopause for the past 25 years.  When I'm happy, I'm way up there!  When I'm depressed (which is more often), I'm down so low I...
