    So a little over a year ago,

    my sister broke up with her boyfriend and she and her son now live with me and my parents. It's been a rough year. I find myself crying a lot more than usual due to the stress of it all. I have been my nephew's babysitter ever since my sister finally got a job. Then she got a...

    Routine

    I feel stuck in a routine, like groundhog day. I get up go to work, come home, sit at computer, go to bed, get up, go to work..........well you get the idea. I just want to do something exciting and new for a change. I want to run away or do a Britney and shave my hair off, no...

    Over the past two years,

    life has seriously been difficult. I dropped out of one college to go to another, which I dropped out of too. I now owe the first college $2100 or something by the end of this year. I was smart, however, when I transferred the would-be tuition from the second college over to a...

    Dreams Seem Just Out of Reach...

     I laughed at the logo for this topic - since thats how I feel, only imagine that the teddy was waist deep - and was stretching his arms to try and reach something to pull himself in.  I feel like my dreams are ahead of me, and no matter how hard I seem to try they are...

    Zugzwang (wikipedia): is a situation found in

    I have all these brilliant media concepts just

    begging to be made -movies, TV shows, cartoon, videogames, books; you name it, but my Asperger's leaves me without the ability to actually flesh them out past concept stage and I have no idea how to get them out so other people will see them and want to make them

    My mother in law and brother in law live with us in our tiny house, supposedly helping with the children while my husband and I work to support everyone, but it sure doesn't feel that way. The house is always a mess, it's cluttered, the kids don't have the time and attention...

    Where do I see myself in a year?

    Not home. Never home again. One more month of this garbage and I can hopefully be free for a good, long while. I need to make it through this time of crap and plan for the future before the thought even hits the back of my head, and I'll be out for good.

    I am feeling very stuck in my life,

    I feel like I'm depressed but I haven't gone to anyone to check if I am or not and I'm afraid that if I am, then I might stay stuck for longer or for the rest of my life. My love life is very non existent, I've only had 1 girlfriend and that only lasted for 4 months while I was...

    My experience started almost two years ago.
