    Pretending all is fine is just easier cause no one really cares anyway do they? I mean really? I kinda doubt it... cause even when I brought up how I felt I was played out as being to sensitive...or well that is how YOU feel like something was wrong with me for being this way...

    My Facebook Happy Face

    I live in a different state than my family, so we communicate through facebook and keep up with each other that way. Of course we talk on the phone too, and I let them know what's going on but I never let them know just how bad I'm doing. I've been going through more than a lot...

    Lately I have been growing increasingly

    miserable. The situation I find myself in zaps the life out of me and leaves me worn, frustrated and sad. There are occasional flickers of light in the darkness, but it is far enough between them to run ashore many times over. Yet even when I feel down I often say that I'm...

    everyday is sad or full of stress.

    I feel I'm so behind in life that I might as well give up. I don't see an end to this except death

    My supervisor told me straight up

    that she wants me to smile no matter how I'm feeling inside. I hope the devil offers me a good price for my soul. I don't need it anymore now that I'm employed.

    I repeat "I'm fine, I'm fine,

    I'm fine, just smile and be fine. Just hold on until tonight" all day until I can finally go into my room lock my door and break down. I just cry for an hour maybe more. I just can't take this anymore.
