    relationship with what I thought was the love of my entire life. It's been weeks since the split and she's moved on already, however, I'm more of a suicidal depressed emotional wreck. I felt betrayed, wondering how someone that told me that she loved me could move on so quickly...

    There came a time I stopped thinking about my friend. I could go on for days and weeks without feeling anything. Then I suddenly collapsed. Maybe because of stress. I think of him more and more now. Instead of forward, I'm taking steps back. It is strange. I'm not quite...

    I can't seem to move on.

    No matter what it is, even if I forget it, it always comes back to haunt me. It's so stressful for my memories to come and get back at me, I don't want to remember the wrong things I've done, I just want to skip past it without it coming back into my head.

    I'm taking myself on a road trip, just me and me. I need to get some perspective in some things, start something new. It'll be good for me. I'll be driving 1400 miles to Portland, Oregon. Get some fresh air, time away from people, and maybe will I know what I wanna do.
