Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 56 People

    I am having a really flat year.

    It's not so much messed it up as lost life. I fear I am too dead inside and will need counseling later maybe. I'm dead and trying to live.

    I lost it when I was 17 to my boyfriend at the time. It was awful. He cried because he was embarrassed he didn't last very long and I kind of just want to forget it ever happened.
