    Hate to sound whiny but here I go.

    .. The past couple of days have been tough for me. I feel like breaking down every time and I don't know how to stop feeling like this. Almost 27, stuck in a ****** job and being a victim of unrequited love, failing at losing weight and battling with low self esteem makes it...

    Sometimes I just want to be in a room alone,

    curl up on the bed, and cry for 30 min straight. Nobody thinks or cares about the stress that's on me. All this hurt & pain I'm keeping in, it's taking its toll on me physically, mentally, & emotionally. It caused me to become depressed. I can't focus, it's effecting my memory...

    and I don't know why completely. I have had so much trauma growing up and things I have had to go through in my older years. I am twenty three now. I feel six years old and sixty years old at the same time. I am a victim of abuse on so many levels and I often find myself...

    You don't realize how lonely you are

    until it's the end of the day and you have a bunch of things to talk about, but no one to tell them to.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm wilting.

    I can just feel the life slipping out of me and I think it's because I'm so completely alone. I have two kids who are about to leave home for university and I just feel like I'm going to be stuck here in this house with all this stuff completely alone and with no one to talk to...

    My flat is a mess, my head is a mess,

    my life is a mess. The pain, the hurt, all the negative emotion is draining my body of energy. I have no motivation. I just want to lay in bed, tucked away beneath the duvet. Hidden away. Life is not what it's cracked up to be. I don't really want to participate in...

    I am so afraid . I thought I was strong

    because my childhood was awful. I'm tired of fighting for happiness. I feel it illusive and I'll never be able to feel safe. I'm used to feeling lonely.

    Most days my phone doesn't ring at all and when it does is usually my dad or boyfriend. I was bullied in school, the work place, and by my family as a child to the point where I have just given up completely. I do everything alone or with my son. Shopping, errands, out to eat...

    before in my life. I don't feel the same connection with anyone and it hurts me so much. I have been crying myself to sleep for the last two nights. I hate this but i can't change it. I always find it hard to change myself.

    In order not to be hurt at all,

    you close up and push people out of your life. It is the safest. You will never experience hurt or losing someone. I lost my mom and I don't need to feel that pain again. My dad doesn't appreciate me even though I do love him very much. He doesn't see me as a person and is often...

    I Am All Alone and She Could Care Less

    The readers digest version is that the woman I spent my life with for 28 years, the woman that I devoted myself to left me like a sack of garbage at the curb of life.  She never appreciated anything that I did for her or our girls, never made even a token attempt...

    I don't understand it.
