    I'm scared... so scared.

    ...like I hadn't been before... and it feels horrible. I feel like a pressure in my chest, my hands are shaking, my head hurts so bad, i feel like dying, like wanting to disappear, to be gone, to not be found... ever.

    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....

    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...

    There were these two men walking up behind my house (there's train tracks behind my house) and I was coming through the gate into the backyard. I said Hi to the men and they continued walking up to the fence of my yard. They said to me "We know who you are" and then everything...

    I am scared that those honest stories that I have written are a figment of my imagination. I am scared that if I make the sacrifices today to go for what I think is true today it will not be worth it. I am scared that one day I will wake up and realise this was all just a big...

    and I'm thoroughly freaked out. I absolutely love horror movies, but for some reason one of the houses I went too left a horrible impression on me. I can't even fall asleep because I'm so scared.

    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.
