    Losing My Mind

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm doing okay for the moment. but sometimes I feel as if I'm losing my mind. Maybe it's the depression that I suffer from, or maybe it's in my nature to just f-ing lose it. I'll admit, I get worried about my future...I feel as if my mind is slowly going...

    Is it just me or is there more people

    It's 1 AM. I'm crying in my grandma's kitchen.

    I'm not really sure why. My heart just really hurts. It's heavy with a grief that I have no explanation for. My thoughts are racing. I'm afraid to talk to anyone around me. The only person I want to talk to right now is my doctor or any doctor but I can't see one until next...

    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...

    I feel it happening again. It's like there is an ocean inside my brain and the tide is pulling all of my thoughts and my eyes to the right. I hope this is just because I am going to have a stressful tea party in 3 hours. You know, if I behave all the way, this doesn't happen...

    where I actually don't know what's happening to me. Im just lying on the floor, pulling my hair, bawling my eyes out, hurting myself, cutting my wrists way too deep, repeating to myself "I can't do this anymore". I honestly feel like I'm really losing it. Im really afraid that...

    Just another rant to hopefully clear my head.

    So, Friday went really well. I never went to my prom, so going with my friend to hers wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. We actually both had fun and it was great to see her smile for once because she doesn't do it enough. Anyhow, it was great until the end of the...

    I want to want to kill again.
