    Maybe Not Leaving Altogether

    I'll probably just be spending much less time online. It really doesn't seem fair for me to keep winding people up the way I do.

    I'm not thinking about it.

    I'm doing it. I'm sick of this place. Don't ask why. Some things grow old, an EP is one of those. Bye

    I Really Don't Have Anything New to Say Right Now

    EP has been good for me for quite some time but lately (NOT just the last couple of days!) it hasn't been so good for me - it's actually been very stressful and makes me feel even lonelier... I have talked my marital issues to death, and I think some people are getting...
