    Not Much Help

    I guess if you're lonely, this group is the place to be...lonely. We just share our stories and no one comments or talks to one another. Why bother?

    Maybe I'm An Alien

    Even though People would look in on the outside and think i'm not lonely, I really am. When I talk to my friends, some i've known since secondary school, I feel like i'm not really me and can't show the real me to anyone. I guess i'm conforming to what type of person they expect...
