    I'm tired of being me.

    ... Always seeming to travel in circles never improving my life to the degree that I want to improve it.... Always being afraid of change.... Lacking confidence and self esteem .... Lacking willpower .... Lacking the ability to stay positive

    I have been sick, and getting worse,

    for so many years. I had many doctors and "loved ones" tell me that it was in my head, that I'm just lazy and that there was nothing wrong with me. After being a pin cushion for 18 years of my life, I FINALLY got an answer a few days ago. I have Lyme Disease. I had heard of...

    Sick Of Being Like This

    I am sick of feeling like crap all the time, battling depression and anxiety. Nothing I do seems to be helping, eating right and exercising, I still feel like a bag of crap, I still feel totally exhausted, sleep or no sleep. I feel pain all over my body, my joints, my neck and...

    I hate trying to get through every day,

    just to wake up and feel the same way. I'm only here for my kids and wife. I always say it could be worse and soon after it actually is. There is no getting better. I know what it really means about, it's the small things that count. Just want to wake up and be able to move or...

    I don't think. when something hurts I feel this wave of.. I'm not sure.. grief? maybe torment? it ripples across me. I get chills and it instantly lowers my mood. I'm so sick of feeling so empty. I'm so sick of being me I could just die. just a minute in my skin makes me want to...

    I'm sure you don't care,

    but i'll tell you anyway. I suffer from chronic pain and digestive issues. Basicially an Autoimmune disease. It controls my life. I am not well enough to work, maintain excercise or enjoy eating. I don't even have a social life. It's only been 2 years. I know I should give it...

    Sometimes you have to think how easy it is just

    to die. Why is it we torture ourselves going to work and school everyday. Is that really making the most of life? All just to pay for your funeral in the end...if that. Live a life for your family but never get to see them. Why bother? What did you accomplish? Look at me. Going...

    This damn disease has taken

    so much from me, and now it's taking my ability to perform. I love singing and being on a stage. It's so much of who I am, but I'm tired. I sang a few harmonies to one song tonight. It was fun, but when I stepped down off the stage, my knees were wobbly. I don't want to, at all...

    and stressed out. I'm trying not to be, but I don't really know if it's working. My family has had it so incredibly rough, we just can't seem to get ahead no matter what we do. First of all, my husband had cancer from 2003-2011 (for 8 full years) and having someone with a life...

    OMG another night with little sleep.

    I have such horrible anxiety that I cannot hardly function any longer. They throw medicine at me, but the side effects are almost as bad as the disorder. They either make you more anxious, make you feel numb, ruin your sex life, make you fat, etc. So I have the choice to be...
