    My parents indirectly keep me from getting the

    mental healthcare I need. It started senior year of high school when I became suicidal for the first time in my life. It was due to a mixture of painful anxiety, moving stress, depression, and backlash from horrible things that I experienced during my psychosis at my old house...

    I'm Sorry My Sadness Makes You Uncomfortable

    I'm not "fine". I'm not even okay and I'm certainly not good. What's worse is that I haven't felt that I have the right to feel anything less than "okay". I have felt as if I don't have the right to feel sad. I have been shamed for feeling sad. I have been invalidated in such...

    Life is kicking me in the heart!

    My mother who is ill. My sister did not tell me she was ill and in the hospital, due to her hate for me. My dearest friend, OldMountainMan here, who is dying of cancer. He won't be coming home from the hospital. I am heading back to my home area to be with them. To see what I...

    where you just lay in your bed and curl up in a ball, wrapped up in a blanket and you just cry? :(

    I'm staying in a city away from home

    and my bestfriend and my mom and my dog for a school program. I'm spending all my free time sleeping and being alone. I've started watching Dexter and it's sad that this serial killer character has similar dissociative thoughts that I do. I don't have the bloodlust, and I'm not...

    I Am Sad.

    I am sad for me. And I am sad for you, too. I am sad that the earth is hurting, and so are her people. I am sad that corporations and government are synonymous. I am sad that millions of people have nothing to eat. I am sad that trees are being cut down every second. I am sad...

    I feel like there's nothing I can do about my

    mental/emotional situation, so that makes me miserable and then all I can do is talk about how miserable I am all the time and then that just makes me feel guilty and like I'm a crybaby.

    I thought I knew better,

    but I was wrong. Months ago I had found out a friend lied. Fast forward to now, and I found out by accident this time that my same friend lied again. Will I ever learn? I hope so. :/

    Endless Tears

      To cry alone.  It is better then the rain.   At least then no one can see my hurt.   It seems the cold of winter comes through to the center of my soul so often.   It comes more then once a year.     The sadness in my heart; it is...

    So Sad

    I waited for you for so long. I watched my phone, every night, waiting on a phone call that somewhere in the back of my mind I knew I’d never get. I just wanted to hear you say that you were sorry for what you did, and that maybe you wanted to get back together. I hoped and...

    That pain in your chest

    when you know that you're just their second option, or maybe the last option they have. When that person doesn't care about your feelings, doesn't care you're reaching out for theirs. When you have to accept your condition and truth you'll face sooner. I wish my heart...

    Well, thats the understatement of the century.

    And whats worse, I have nobody to blame but me. I cant keep my trap shut, not can I hold something to myself. I drive away people, always. I was in a relationship, for 4 years. I was loyal, stupid and caring. I never doubted too much, forgave everything, all lies. Never...

    people outside of my immediate family. My siblings are the same way. We moved so often as kids everyone else was just temporary, what good was it to become deeply attached to anyone? To anyone else who's moved a lot do you also feel this way? Like I have a lot of friends and...

    true value of every single moment until it all became a memory. Missing every single moment of joy and true bliss. Memories that never wane.

    You called me up at 1:30 this morning, so drunk you were repeating yourself over and over.  I love you too.  You can't just "unlove" someone, especially someone you write songs for after fifteen years.  Oh *****, you've had an ankle bracelet on for five...

    I carry a great amount of sadness within me,

    but I usually keep it buried and rarely take notice of it or let it show. I hope one day I can set it free when I have achieved what's necessarily and can live my life the way I want to ;)

    I wish I had someone in my extended family

    who I felt close to. I read about all these people who have special bonds with their extended family members and that's just not the case with me. Makes family reunions (which happen maybe once a year) more awkward than pleasant and heartwarming. Ah well.

    If someone really wanted you,

    they'd actually put some effort into trying to get your attention and make sacrifices for you. They wouldn't just tell you, they want you; they'd show you in every little way possible that they want you.
