    The facade of strength

    and control I'd maintained for so long broke down a few weeks ago and I'm feeling very unstable. I am becoming less and less able to behave appropriately at work and socially. My head is a pretty bad place to be right now

    I Try

    I come here and pretend so many many times... like today. Pretend I'm ok, pretend that I'm not sitting here crying with each letter I type, pretend that I'm sitting here all pretty and chipper and wonderful. I go back and forth from here to cleaning or here to emails that add to...
