    Sometimes it is physical pain,

    other times it is just emotional... Life is rough, but I feel like I can continue, just let my have my space, my mood swings, and I will get over it ;) Caffeine and candy will help, bring those NOW lol jkjk :D

    I Want To Be Real

    This is hard for me, I am almost 35, but I just found a book my wonderful grandparents gave me on my 7th birthday. I don't think I read it until now, but it really hit me hard. I love my grandparents, and they both passed away in the past few years. Anyway, I miss them...

    When you have Tourette's,

    you can't pretend to be okay, even when you're not. People notice and understand there's something wrong with you. When you have social anxiety and you park your car in front of the mall, but end up driving home rather than shopping, then you're not okay. When you're deeply...

    I know I am not ok yet,

    but I am a little better than I was a week ago. I still get sad sometimes. I still sense you slipping away from me even though the tighter I try to hold on to you the faster you slip away. But, there is this insensible calm that has wrapped itself like a blanket over me. I'm all...

    Pretty much went to college

    for something I thought I'd love but now I hate it. It started months ago but I worked to hard to get here to quit now. If I quit I'll be in massive debt and have to owe money back ASAP. I'm mad and wish I would have thought about it more. At the time I was okay with this quick...

    Life can really give you a kick in the balls

    Since I met her, I haven't been able to get her

    off my mind. Last night, she had sex with my best friend. I guess they're a thing now. I know he'll treat her right, and that they're both happy. I know I'll eventually come to terms with it, and that everything will be okay. I hope someday I can stop feeling awkward around them...

    It was my birthday yesterday.

    And I used to love birthdays now birthdays make me sad. Perhaps I just miss being "home". I live 4000kms from my loved ones. Sure makes a person lonely when no one that lives close even knows it's your birthday. Way to celebrate a life.

    Sometimes I have to just put my own needs to

    the side and put a smile on my face while everyone else actually is serene. I am slowly becoming emotionless in a bad way.

    The Truth About Love

    Maybe I'm wrong but all I've ever known about love is pain. I've fallen in love only to get cheated on. I've reinstated my faith in love only to become disappointed as I watch others around me cheat and lie to the ones they say they love. They all have the audacity to throw that...

    A Quick Fix To My Indistinguishable Fire

    I’m attending counselling again. I’ve also been recommended for group therapy.  I like one-on-one counselling.  For me, it’s a good way to  work out my issues.  The group therapy I’m going to have to work on harder.  I imagine it will do nothing but good for me, but...

    Every day is the same.

    Get up, try to find some meaning in school, try to laugh at my friends jokes, try to give advice on their high school drama. But I'm so very tired, and it's still not warm outside. He still hasn't texted me back, I'm not okay.

    How I managed to overcome every tragedy that life has thrown my way this year, It's a miracle. When you feel your lowest, people expect of you to just jump up and be okay. But I'm not okay, but I'll manage because I don't give up not without a fight. Whatever happened yesterday...
