    Stupid pills, I know

    that I need them to get better, but they make me so irritable, and feeling so bad. I seriously believe that is worse the remedy that the illness.

    I'm starting to feel low again.

    I can feel it coming, like some black heavy sludge climbing up my body. It's sitting in my stomach now. I know it'll creep over me again until I want to kill myself. I have rapid cycles of feeling incredibly low and suicidal to feeling fairly level. It's seems to take something...

    He called me mentally unstable.

    The words weren't meant to cut, they were just simply stated, and I knew they were true. Aside from the old scars, which I assume he's noticed by now, he hasn't really seen me act "unstable". I knew he would realize at some point, but how did he ALREADY know I was an internal...

    My actions make me feel like it more

    and more everyday. And I think people can see it and that's why they abandon me.

    I'm not suicidal, and I don't think I'd ever

    actually kill myself. I just think that if I was in a situation, for instance, a car was driving straight towards me I'm not sure if I'd get out of the way ..

    Understatement Number 127!

    Yeah unstable, but surround myself with others who are the same so we get along just dandy. LOL Anyone who is even all of the time is hiding something or just really good at faking it. And if not, could ya sell me your secret? I'm not sure normal really exists though.

    I have an amazing ability to take any given

    positive situation/statement/thought and make it stressful and depressing. It's not that I want to. I just do it naturally lol. Anyone want someone to cast a shadow over your happiness? I'm your woman. Hit me with your best shot

    I have been going to consolers and a mental health service since I was 13. I have strange thoughts, ones that people normally don't have. I also see things and hear things no one else does. I don't blame anyone for this. Although I don't think I'm weak because of this. God gave...

    Lately I've been having extreme mood swings.

    For example I'll be in the mood to be social and talk to people for maybe 30 mins and then BAM. I want nothing more than to be alone. What do I want? I'm so confused o.O
