    I hate it. I shouldn't have to be on edge

    I Always Am.

    No matter where I am or who I'm with, I'm always walking on egg shells, watching my every move.  I just can't wait to be with the only person in the world who I don't have to do that with.  Hell, I can't even eat in my own house because I don't know if my mom used her...
