    My experience started almost two years ago.

    I was asked to take guardianship of my nephews. Up until this point I've felt confident that I could raise them to not be their parents, but these last few week that confidence is gone. I feel like they are never going to surpass the legacy that their parents made for them. The...

    I never have anyone to talk to

    and when I do I never have anything to say. My friends know nothing about me because they don't care enough to ask and I don't care enough to tell them. I call these people my "best friends". It'd be really nice to not feel alone all the time and even if I don't want to open up...

    Between Life and Death

    I'm finding my depression very difficult to cope with and am not moving forward fast enough to make it any easier. I think that getting out of this existence is the only option but I am trapped because I want to be around for my brother so that he doesn't end up like me.
