    The Scam Of All Scams!!

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Always Alone

    i'm never interested in anyone. and when i am, it's so rare and so shocking and suddenly profound. and of course they are just "not that into me." and losing weight, and getting happier and more confident and obtaining more goals in life just do not seem to make it any...
