    I keep a smile on my face

    so that people will think I'm okay. They don't know that I have suicidal thoughts so that they won't have to worry about me. I skip lunch. I cut somewhere in my body usually my hips. But during the day, I'm a happy girl. Joking around and stuff. Talking about my favorite songs...

    Who Am I ?

    Don't be afraid by my profile on EP. I'm married with a gentle woman. Alas, she don't understand my 'particularity'. She love me only like a 'man'. My soul is so feminine but 'crashed' in a male envelope. It's the reason why I search friend (F) who can understand my feminity. I...

    My parents. Through the course of my life they

    have accused me of many things. They have accused me of everything from being a drug dealer to being the anti christ himself. All of these things are untrue. My dad and stepmom have never been able to see me clearly; and I have given up hope that they ever will. But it all just...

    The Real Me

    As I get dressed for work this morning I slip on my panties and then my pants. How I wish I could dress completely as the woman I really feel like I am and not as the man people see on the outside:(

    I'M That Girl

    I'm the girl sitting next to you in class laughing and smiling. I'm the girl you just walked past in the mall that was walking with her head down. I'm the weirdo with my headphones in my ears blocking out the world by blaring Marilyn Manson. I'm the one with blood stained wrists...

    It seems as though people enjoy defining who their peers are...especially high school students! My friends and classmates tell me who I am. This is not right, but what can I do about it? I am merely another student among 3,000 private school students. I tried to show the "real...

    Not sure why I'm here on this site...I guess I'm searching for someone who can understand me and actually listen.  A life built on lies is what I have.  I'm a lost soul that is losing myself...I'm drowning each day.  Little by little I loose me.  But the...

    Well, I don't understand

    why people force me like "do this" and "do that". I think each individual is born unique and they have been given, brains, hands, legs, etc, etc to create what they want and to live life how they wish. No matter how a person is born, they all have their own rights.....

    Being Nice

    I recently read something that alternately disturbed, intrigued, and scared me.  To risk sounding egotistical, I'm constantly told that I'm nice.  Isn't it nice how I think of everyone else, only putting myself in the number one position when it's absolutely necessary...

    No One Knows Me

    Sometimes I look in the mirror and wonder if I even know myself. Some people are clueless; they think they can see into your soul upon first glance. Everyone thinks I'm a calm, caring, kind, intelligent person. I guess you could say that I am, but they don't know what goes on in...
