    Invisibly Yours

    There is always someone who needs something more than I do. I was born healthy, my cousin was not, therefore I didn't need the attention that she did (and does) from the family. I broke my leg, but no one, and I mean no one helped me. I languished in my apartment, starving...

    The World Spins Madly On

    I've been trying to come to terms lately with the fact that I'm not close to the people I hold most dear in my life anymore. It's like the world swallowed me up and I wasn't able to stop it. My friends have pretty much disappeared from my life. I'm just trying to figure out how...

    Can I Be Understood?

    E ver feel like you are a lone soul? I often do. I try to connect with other people, but their lives seem wrapped around the here and now, the things that lie on the surface.. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who run much deeper and have no one to connect with...

    Still No One Noticed

    I thought about drinking a lot. Maybe someone will be concerned, but it’s not really me. I use to starve myself and exercise for 6 hrs a day and I lost 95 lbs and no one said a thing. At the same time my friend went into the hospital for being anorexic. She lost maybe 20...

    Still Overlooked

    Even in the overlooked section I feel overlooked. Am I really that worthless?

    Here Like A Doormat....

    I am so tired of all the BS that goes down. I am tired of always going and doing things at work that are not my responsiblity, but I do them and it gets over looked. Though as soon as I do not do the things I just usually do because no one else is thinking of it, I get in trouble...

    But I Want to Be Meaningful

     I really want to leave an impact and be meaningful to those in my life. I want to be special and significant to someone, sometimes many people. I'm comfortable standing in the sidelines sometimes but I think I'm there too much. I'd love to be noticed more, and I'd love for...

    What is to be said should have been expected. Who really sees me for me? Who am I to you? You stand there, expecting me to do all the work. You think I'll be fine doing this by myself and then try and take credit! Sometimes you don't even notice I'm there it's always the same...
