    It Is Not A Good Feeling

    As I glanced toward my cell phone, I began to scroll down the address book to see who I could call.  Slowly, I reached the end of the list, without dialing a number at all.  "They are busy with their family and friends".  I thought.  I...

    Just Passing Through.

    A lot of people don't seem to understand that you don't have to be by yourself to be lonely. I have a job where I see countless people every day and yet loneliness still lingers, even if it's only a faint shadow; I still feel it when I talk with friends, when I laugh, even when I...

    Someone's Missing.

    I think many of the people here know this feeling very well. The fact, that you have to be strong. The fact that you have to be like everything is okay. But nothing seems to be okay. Sometimes I only wish to have someone I can talk to. Some place where I can be weak. Someone who...

    Last night I was lying in bed crying.

    For the first time in a few weeks after starting anti anxiety medication I lay awake asking myself where I fit. Why I am here and if I'm important to anyone. If anyone would miss me if I were to end my life. Maybe it was a cry for help and attention. I know I'd never want to put...
