    Am I the Only One?

    Often I ask myself what really is my purpose in life?  At 45 years old, I don't seem to have an answer.  Everything in my ripe adult life now seems to be feeble attempts to accomplish things I couldn't in my earlier years.  Like others' experiences and stories, I...

    He called me tonight off someone else's number.

    His voice sounded like home. Immediately the fire of anxiety in my chest went out. Love is a drug, an addiction, an obsession if you let it be. I gave him False hope and I know that was wrong....I told him I wanted a couple months of space to clear my head. I'm hoping after that...

    for me to write because I've never really opened up about this before. Ever since I was in fourth grade...I've felt alone. Not because it's hard for someone like me to make friends, but because when my parents split up...I felt like it was all my fault. They told me it wasn't...

    I sit here alone. Staring at the computer. Wondering how my life has come to this. Did I make all the decisions that led to this? Were some made for me? I don't know the answers. I only know that my troubled heart will find peace one day. That the torment that has plagued me...

    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...

    I thought she was gone, so I hoped, so I feared. She returns, and all the memories are rushing back, but for an odd reason, none of the bad ones are seen, is it a lure? It's been over two years since I met her, I knew I was so attached to her the first time I saw her, I felt...

    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...
