    ...what makes me think it won't happen again? It's almost like people get bored of me. Not really dislike, but just find that there is nothing left to talk about with me, so they just drift away.

    I get ditched a lot or people don't remember

    I'm there. I've always had this problem. Other times it's my fault. I don't keep contact with people. Whenever I want to talk to someone I always feel like in bothering them. Or they'll be mad that we haven't talked for so long. This led to a shell of sorts. I haven't tried to...

    He means so much to me. They mean so much to me. I can't escape the fact that one day I'm gonna have to let them go, but that days not gonna be today. Or tomorrow. Or in a week. If I lose them I'm gonna go down fighting and I'm not gonna stop. No matter what he says I'm gonna...

    " What If They Find Out??? "

    Probably like other crossdresser's, I have lived in fear of being caught by a friend or family member. I  am afraid if I and ousted, I will lose the respect and love of my family and friends. Not all people understand our life style, nor do they want to accept it. To most, we...

    If They Saw The Real Me

    If they truly know I'm Emo, I'm afraid they will spread rumors that I cut myself (I don't do that), always depressed (not all the time), or I'm a freak (in an all girls school, your an outsider). I can't take that. It's too much for my already broken heart to take. I'm afraid to...
