    It Scares Me

    At times. Because one minute I'll be crying and feeling suicidal, and the next I feel happy and like laughing at everything. Everything's fine. It's like I turn into different people. Or I'll start hurting myself, then suddenly feel happy and I'll laugh about it while I do it...

    Today started off pretty good considering.

    But it's not ending very well. I can't sleep at all. I would love to just lay down and sleep soundly for once in my stupid life. My brain won't shut up.
