    The doctor told me it wasn't an ear infection.

    I guess it's uneven pressure build up in my left ear. He recommended some medicine to help clear my sinuses and stuff. I just want the pain to stop.

    I'm in a continuous loop of trusting you

    and then being hurt. I don't know what to believe. You don't know how much you hurt me. I feel so lost, so stupid, so naive, because we both know I'll always come running back to you because I have nowhere else to go.

    THE TRUTH IS. NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR YOUR PAIN.

    NO MATTER HOW HURT YOU ARE. IVE TRIED IT AND IT SEEMED TOO MUCH FOR THEM. TO EVEN JUST SIT THERE AND JUST LISTEN. NOTHING MORE. NOTHING LESS. BUT EVEN JUST TO SIT THERE.

    I think it hurts most

    when people who care about you do things to hurt you. There are things I don't even want to be told jokingly, because it will really upset or trigger me. I wish people would understand that.
