    If I don't check myself in to a hospital I will end up in jail. I have to say it's the anger and rage. That keeps brewing inside me. My love for people is growing in to a hatred. Aggression in taking over. I find it hard to stand being around people. I find myself ready to run...

    Detached And Tired.

    I sleep for 12+ hours sometimes. I leave my house only to go to work. I come home, eat, sit alone in my room until 4 or 5 in the morning and go back to sleep. I experience short periods of time during which I am slightly detached from reality. For the most part, I consider myself...
