    I'm scared of a lot things - I mean medically

    so. I had to watch while my best friend was raped and I was within minutes of the same thing happening to me. It left me traumatized and terrified to the point where I have needed medical care and it is a slow and hard recovery for me.

    Big out of town event this weekend.

    Typically I have excited nervous butterflies, but I am full of dread. I have a bad feeling about this one, I can't decide if it's paranoia or intuition speaking. The temperature will be 110 degrees! Not only do I need to make sure I'm ok, I have a horse that needs to be stellar...

    My biggest fear is never finding myself.

    Being swallowed up by outside influences and living a life created for regular people with regular minds. Never finding out what I'm capable of.. What my true desires are.. Slowly losing sight of what it's like to have a completely independent outlook on life.

    I don't want to be this person.

    I feel bad as though I have trapped you with me in this craziness. If I knew how messed up I am, I would have warned you. I love you, I know you love me...but sometimes I wonder if I should just tell you to go find someone who will not be so much to deal with. I would be civil...

    I'm not positive anymore.

    Oblivion I always see

    I'm not ready to tell my friends about my

    self-harm and I might go swimming tomorrow. I can't hide my cuts when I'm swimming. I suggested going to a movie instead. I'm afraid our plans to go to the movies won't happen and we end up going in the pool.

    When someone scares me I shake

    To Be Honest I Am Scared.

    I don't think about it much as I employ mindfulness in my daily life, staying in the NOW, so my thoughts don't wander. It helps. But, when I lie in bed at night, in the dark, in the silence, my mind goes to the future. I try to feel how it will be when I leave the home I love...
