    I'm Addicted To Drugs And My Boyfriend Is Really Really Sick

    I first fell in love with the warm, fuzzy pills, heroin and opium when I was about 15. Since then it was only a luxury to even get an opiate buzz let alone really intoxicated. I've always used an array of dfferent drugs at different times of my life but never stuck to just one...

    My unhappiness could do with the fact I am

    surviving yet another hot day in Sydney (a high of 40 today). It might also be because I drove approximately 100km's today. Or maybe because I've committed myself to taking my 3 children in this heat into the city this afternoon via public transport to stand in a crowd of 100's...

    It's my job that crushes my spirit

    and makes me feel like life is not worth living. Oppressive, frustrating, aggravating job that kills my outlook. Some people would say to not let it, but that's impossible when it's every day and it's your means for survival. You can't just quit and find something else. Times...

    Once Upon A Time...

    It all seems like it happened so long ago. Sometimes I find myself wondering if it was all just in my head. The memories are hazy at best and they don’t seem to belong to me; it’s as if the girl from those memories is not me. And yet, who else could it be? But how could...
