    I'm throwing the towel in!

    I don't think I could be anything I aspire to be. I'm good for helping people, & that is all. That is God's intended plan for me.

    After 16 years battling chronic depression, hospitalizations, psychiatric hospitals, therapists, psychiatrists, I just gave up. I cant bear these feelings anymore, it's just too much to carry. I dont function, I stayed at home all day lying in my bed staring the ceilling...

    I have a website but everybody says

    that it's so very stupid and pointless. But I don't think so! It's a collection of people's photos. The website shows how different and beautiful people are. But I feel like I'm giving up.

    I can't do this anymore.

    I give up. I tell myself over and over again that maybe my dreams will come true, that maybe I'll finally be happy. I lie awake every night imagining my dreams coming true, imagining myself happy, until the next morning when I wake up to this harsh world all over again. I try so...

    I don't have much to say on this subject only

    that I'm tired of trying, so I feel I shouldn't waste my time. If I'm meant to be happy then I will be eventually but in the meantime I'm just going to drone through my days.

    ...on Dreams

    I have fantasies of being wealthy, of being safe, of being happy...of having a home, and a good job, and good insurance, and not having to be afraid...and then I open my eyes to the dump I live in, to the sick body I have that nonetheless manages to look so healthy, to depression...

    Alright. I'll do it. I'll give in.

    A lifetime of constantly deconstructing myself and the reality around me has led to this. An end. And you know what? I expected this. I've toyed with the monsters in my head, talked to them, and even tried getting rid of them. Now I take pills for my psychosis. It's been about a...

    I think this is the point

    where I give up on relationships. Not just romantic ones, all of them. I have to find a way to be happy alone because people are the worst let downs.

    I'm becoming overly depressed.

    I know I need to talk to someone but I'm so busy. School, kids, and home. I have no help, no family around, and the husband is away often, which is a good thing because it keeps me from going completely crazy. My marriage is falling apart and he seems fine, while I'm losing...

    Do Not Judge Untill You Fell the Pain

    Some things can't be found by looking.

    Some things can't be achieved by trying. And some things can't be taught by studying. I want something that falls into all three of those areas. So I'm giving up on "working hard" for it. It will come on its own. I just have to be patient. Hopefully, when it arrives, it will be...
