    I am almost 18 years.

    I have been developing a male-ish psychology, but my body says otherwise. I have small shoulders, large hips, embrassing boobs and small hands but large feet. Since I was born, my parents and my brother and my friends have all treated me like a boy, and I have always felt like a...

    I am still having trouble coping with the fact

    that I don't have my kids anymore. It is hard for me day after day. It is hard seeing parents with their children. I don't know how I can deal with it.

    I don't get myself sometimes.

    I honestly have a lot to work on when it comes to myself. I don't know how to change. It seems hard or maybe I'm just not making a conscious effort to TRY. What makes me happy I can't find in material things. People disappoint me and I find it hard to trust most people. I'm...

    Somehow whenever I try to make a decesion I

    loose things out of control. Whether I make or not, it happens. It is quite confusing how I tend to double my mind when it comes to things..

    Lost & Wandering Aimlessly Through the Wasteland Called Life

    i am experiencing a horrible, life altering disconnect from self.  there is apparently no origin, no direction, and not yet a culmination; i don't know where i'm coming from, what i'm doing at the present moment, or where i'm going.

    I lay on the floor in my living room

    and stare at the wall all day. I then roll over and face the back of my couch at night. Repeat. I am alone. No one hits me up. No one responds to my messages. When around people I am lost. Nothing helps the loneliness and depression. Read my other posts, I'm about to explode...

    Every morning when I wake up,

    I have this severely nihilistic feeling that all is lost. I have no idea where I am, where I came from, where I am going, or why I am here. Nobody does. Oftentimes, I think of the allegory of the cave. Are we all in a place that is only a fragment of reality? What is reality...
