    There was a cyclist killed in my neighborhood

    on Friday. The community responded with a "meeting/memorial ride." I attended because I was deeply moved (I saw the body in the street, I am a cyclist and a motorist) by this man's death. I know that people respond/process things like this in their own way. I know that tragedy...

    Well over ten years ago I was attracted to a Venezuelan woman who worked in a restaurant! I met her during the summer and she didn't have anyone to babysit her 4 year old daughter, so she brought her to work with her. One day, when I walked in and sat at the counter, there sat...

    And Sick of It.

    Sometimes I just walk around aimlessly downtown, what does that make me? It makes me sick when I see people that are just hanging around with their friends, I used to be like that before my depression and now I can't even talk to people for longer than a few minuets, just out of...

    Who Am I?

    I'm losing track of what is real in my life and what's in my head. Am i really alone and unloved or is it all in my imagination. I feel like I'm slipping away into madness and I'm desperately reaching out for somebody to pull me back to reality. But does anyone notice? Does...

    Drugs and Booze Cannot Replace the Affections of One For Whom You Deeply Care.

    I am married with three kids.

    Dissapointment.

    I am very lonely in this world. People come and leave me then all alone with fading memories and a bitter taste of pain and dissapointment. I just get used to people very much. They leave and go ahead. I can just follow them with my eyes. I can just resign to my straits and sit...

    I am very lonely right now.

    I just sat on my right hand until it went numb and then held it with my left hand so it felt like I was holding hands with someone. I wish I'm holding hands with someone. but I'm not. I'm lonely.
