    Almost 5am: head pounding,

    been going on for hours non stop now, another migraine. Tears rolling down my face, so lonely, so unloved, in so much eternal pain it's physically hurting. Haven't been able to sleep even a second. I need love. I deserve it. Or maybe I don't. In so much pain right now, head...

    Trying to be strong while I'm getting over my

    ex. I feel so horrible and sick though. My heart hurts so bad. I never want to feel this way again. How can I ever trust someone with my heart again?

    The edge is so close

    and I am alone. Eight weeks and two days without it. The hurt is so bad and all it would take is one cut to **** everything up and completely set everything back that I've worked so hard for. But ****! I have NO idea what to do right now, stuck in my head again and completely...

    When you are hurting,

    there will always be people who find a way to make it about themselves. If you break your wrist, they’ll complain about a sprained ankle. If you are sad, they’re sadder. If you’re asking for help, they’ll demand more attention. When you get angry, there are going to be...

    So Tired!

    I'm tired of the pain. It drains me. It has robbed me of what I need to make the necessary changes. Try pulling up your boot straps when you're barefoot. Not asking for crutches, just the shoes I came with and a little push. Not into traffic, though. I don't need you to...

    Seeking Acceptance

    It comes in waves. One minute I'm fine, then the next minute I've burst into tears and collapsed on the floor. When I shower seems to be the most difficult. Other times I can feel it start in my belly. I feel sick to my stomache, then there is this incredible pressure on my chest...

    I Doesn't Go Away

     I hurt.  My past won't leave me.  My mind goes to past pain and anguish when I least expect it.  I want to forget.  I have argued in the past that the pain is necessary for forward movement, but that was all bullshit.  I don't need this pain. ...

    Have you ever longed

    for something from the past which you know you can't get back? Even if it became a part of the present, it wouldn't be the same as how it was. I mourn the loss of the parts of the past that I loved. Of course you've felt that way. It's human.

    I've never really had a father.

    I actually thought I could rely on my biological dad for something today, but of course he backs out in the last minute. He doesn't know how to be a father. I can't trust him or rely on him to ever be there. He claims he loves me but he doesn't know how to love.

    I'm feeling a lot better now,

    but I'm still kind of amazed at the bitterness of people in this world. I feel like people are just too sensitive and when I try to be nice I get slapped in the face.
