    There is something wrong with me

    but I don't know what. It's scary and it's almost driving me insane... I feel tired easily and have bad dreams almost every night that wake me up at odd hours of the morning. I think something is after me.

    I commented on PlseDontHurtMe's story about her

    reporting people for betraying her. I said she shouldn't block people any time she's upset with them after she blocked someone who disagreed with her. I told her this because it's not a good way of getting through life if you just "block" people who annoy you. You can't do that...

    Don't Quit

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit- Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer...
