Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 185 People

    I'm getting flipping upset with all the double

    standards humanity has. I've had a very upsetting, anxiety causing, I hate people, day and you know what? I could've avoided it had I done what I wanted to do instead of BEING FLIPPING NICE to my family and listening to what they wanted and thus causing the events that occurred...

    Falling Apart, and I Can't Stop.

    I should be happy. I am a tall, attractive 16-year-old girl in the prime of life with a great boyfriend and a great group of friends. I managed to get into all the advanced classes I wanted, I'm pulling A's and B's, I'll probably be accepted to U of M for medical...

    When I feel like this I take vitamin B - 3

    heaping tablespoons of brewers yeast in a big glass of water. I like brewers yeast because it is a natural source of vitamin B, which means it is easy for the body to assimilate, it provides the full spectrum of B vitamins, and it is cheap. Zinc is a catalysis for vitamin B - I...

    They say just let it be,

    but life doesn't work that way. Life can be what we want it to, it it that versatile, but one way or another it is fickle and it likes to play tricks on me. It can't let things be. It takes me to places I never wanted to visit again, they are now different places, even better...

    Not Really 'on The Verge'.

    I'm at the beginning of one. I've had quite a few before, being a person that's not hard to stress out, and I can feel it. I'm sleeping excessively, I'm hyperventilating with no warning at various points in my day, my blood pressure and heart rate is through the roof, I'm barely...

    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...
