    I got so stressed that I had to go to the

    hospital because of a stomach ulcer and I just wish I had someone to talk to and help me figure out where I'm going. I feel like I grew up too early.

    Feels like I really need some time alone.

    I need to find peace within myself. It's just so depressing that I think Im getting sader and sader each day. Earlier today during the mass, the priest told that.. "Take time to be in silence, because in silence, you usually hear what God is telling to you."
