    I'm hearing voices again.

    They're calling my name this time. I've been sleeping with a blade and use it to gain sleep. I feel suffocated. I miss what little friends I have. I just want to talk to someone to get my mind off things. To feel human. I don't want to talk about what's bothering me. No. That...
