    My Mind

    There used to be this crab like thing on my mind and face.  It popped from this weird looking thing that was growing in the lab.  Finally the crab thing fell off, but my stomach feels really funny, like there is something growing in it.

    It Takes a While to Find the Words and Even Then ...

    I have a rush of thoughts that flash through my mind and they all seem so methodical. But when I try to express these thoughts in words it only approximates what I really feel or think. My feeling are the most challenging to express with words for words cannot say what I feel...

    For 20 years I've dodged in

    and out of feeling suicidal. I've escaped to "dream adventures" taking years to plan and do. I have gotten mental health care and meds. I have done sleep study and apnea and CPAP to improve energy. I have found one in zillion person who fits. Is a match, understands me...

    Not For a Long Time

    I have never been one to be able to spill out my guts, say what's wrong or let people know what I really feel. I've always had to be the one to keep quiet about things. It probably explains the failure of a few relationships and why I can no longer talk to certain people. But...

    It's a Challenge

    Conversations with even the best of friends can become difficult when I try to fully share the jumbled thoughts in my brain. My tongue becomes tied and suddenly words that sound perfect when strung together in my head come apart as soon as I speak: like beads on a broken necklace...

    Do You Know What I Mean?

    I think more in images than in words so it is difficult for me to explain what I'm thinking. Sometimes what I'm thinking only seems to make sense in my head and not when I try and put it into words. It can be very frustrating sometimes. Occasionally I think very quickly. It's all...

    My Mind Is Too Confusing.

    There is always all these thoughts buzzing around my head and I end up forget a lot of what I'm think. I think so much in such a short space of time... a lot of the time I'm not even fully aware what I'm thinking. I just seem to zone out and then all this rubbish comes into my...

    When It Gets Personal

    I can explain unimportant, everyday things, but when it comes to what is inside, I have a hard time. I have so many thoughts and intense feelings, but I can never transfer all that I feel to others. I can never fully express what is going on in my head. It makes it so hard...

    Thoughts to Words

    I think too much too quickly--I wish that I had an exact transcript of every thought I have, then at the end of the day I could archive certain information and delete the parts I did not want. Then every time I would be explaining a thought or having a sudden issue with coherency...

    Can't Find The Words

    In my mind, I always know exactly how I'm feeling and what I want to say. However, as soon as I try to express that in words I hit a brick wall. I start to say what's on my mind, but I can never finish because everything gets jumbled up. It's so frustrating when I'm trying to...

    It's Particularly Frustrating

    when it's a simple idea that somehow gets misinterpreted by whoever I'm telling. I dunno, it's really upsetting, though. I think maybe I do, but in less words than people are used to, so they add words for me and choose to get offended, or somecrap.

    Skirting Around...

    During conversations, sometimes I have to pause to reflect innerly on things I have been unable to vocalise or translate that often into words.  Therefore, I skirt around the issue as I don't know how to share them.  Then when a thought process starts and as we...

    It's Difficult.

    I do not think verbally. I think in emotions, sensations, images, sounds, memories, expectations, experiences. I think almost everyone does. Sometimes something on my mind consists of a combination of a number of those things. I can almost never put that into words in a way that...

    It's Always Deeper Than That

    There is always meaning behind what I say.  There is always heart, thought, emotion.  It never comes out right though.  I'm not saying I'm not smooth or anything, because I generally get my point across, but what I am saying is that I almost never make my original...

    Ink Is Just Ink

    Sometimes my thoughts just seem so nebulous, multi-dimensional, and I can't squeeze them onto two-dimensional paper to be reduced to scratches of ink drops, or into the flatness of spoken language.  A picture is worth a thousand words, they say, and I sometimes wish I had an...
