    Typical Pms

    I like to think of myself as someone who's calm, cool, and collected, but I can either get extremely angry, sad, or both sometimes. I'm both ashamed and proud of my emotions...sometimes.

    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...
