    When someone scares me I shake

    for like 5 seconds and fall into a fetal position No screaming or flailing of the arms And that **** hurts. Try having every muscle in your body clench and release rapidly. It's like having a seizure when your awake. And trust me I know what that feels like....

    So.. This guy that used to be at my

    cheerleading gym, he was on my team with me, it was back in 2012, and I had the biggest crush on him. He was so cute, I was 12 and he was 18, he was my backspot, and I trusted him with my life. One day he just never showed up at the gym for practice, everyone said he quit...

    I'm sh*tting myself for

    when the time comes. They want to do a week at school soon, for a trial. See how I cope in the 'real world'. And I'm terrified. Because the gossip will be ridiculous. The b*tching, the lies, the rumours, the consoling, and the glares. All of it will be there, constantly. And all...

    I know I shouldn't feel this way in my own home.

    I'm 17 and when I was 12 and 13 my brother did some stuff that he should not have to me and my little sister. Nothing extremely bad, but it has effected me so horriblely. My mom, for reasons that I can't ever fully understand, decided not to do anything but forget about it. My...

    Blindsided, Bushwhacked When I Least Expected It

    But isn't that how it happens? What an emotional roller coaster! From the depths of despair to undeserved happiness. I don't know what I have done to meet such an awesome person but I need to continue doing it. My only fear is I will wake up and it will all have been a dream...

    The Night It All Changed

    I'm sure I knew this was coming.  I hoped it wouldn't.  But here I am, 31 years old locked in my parents bedroom with my two year old daughter waiting for my drunk husband to try and beat down the door.  For once in my life though, I actually know I am doing...

    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...

    after half term. I'm terrified. I'll get to hand in my prefect application though, and see my teachers and friends. It'll be the first time for quite a few months that I'll have been in school though. So it is a little scary.
