    The Woman In Me.

    I guess my delima is somewhat different than most.  I have DID (Dissociated Identy disorder) and have many different me's inside.  One is a woman named Brenda and she really feels like she is in the wrong body.  Sometimes I wake up at night and it feels like I have...

    I Wish I Could Change It

    No matter how much weight I lose or how much I exercise my body will still be disgusting. I am very short but not petite, I have gigantic broad shoulders, like no chest, and no neck. I am a girl but I feel and look like a man b/c of my body. I was not blessed with any nice...

    Polly

    One morning somebody was crying, but mornings were often noisy: fights about getting up on time and complaints about nightmares. Polly was so quiet, so unobtrusive a presence, that we didn't notice she wasn't at breakfast. After breakfast, we could still hear crying. "Who's...

    Weight Room

    As my luck would have it, I'm stuck in a personal fitness class at my school. You might ask why I'm doing this. Maybe I love going to a gym. Maybe I want to get fit. Surprise---I'm in this class because, if I'm not, I'll never graduate. I've always been more...

    Not Quite Hating Myself, But...

    It's actually rather simple.I'm a quiet, shy person. I prefer hiding and being where others can't see me, like the internet. I'm shy of people and prefer doing silent things by myself, like reading, writing and drawing.My body and mind disagree with my soul. I am a large-boned...

    Own your life, you must take control.

    We live in a world based of fear and media as truth. When we let go of those things we can be open to be fearlessly us @lovemaven told you

    I don't have a therapist to talk to,

    so this will do. I absolutely cannot stand myself. The more I age, the less I can stand the physical, though that has always been an issue, lately it seems insurmountable. The internal part of me is ridiculous. I feel so empty, so nothing. I have no talents, no dreams. I have no...

    The Blue Pill Or the Red Pill

    It Makes Things Awkward

    It is hard to be in skin that doesn't seem to fit.  It makes you move in awkward ways.  If you are comfortable in your skin, you won't understand.  But, if you are, you know...  When the skin doesn't fit, it pulls in weird ways.  It stretches, and...

    Yesterday I moved all my jeans into our room.

    I had recently dropped a size, so I was bringing all the smaller sizes in. I must have been wearing yoga pants and leggings for too long, because I went to put some jeans on this morning, and surprisingly, NONE of them fit. Yay, right? But I have no idea how it happened...

    Why can't I find solitude within myself?

    So critical, like a blade against my skin, a bow pulling arrows through my heart strings. I can't ever feel okay in my own skin. Too fat. Too tall. Too pale. Too tan. I can't seem to satisfy myself. I don't want to disappoint. I watch myself eat, I watch myself starve...
