    I've Broken A Lot Of Stuff.....

    When I'm upset it's like everything's foggy and it's so loud even if I'm alone. I can't think straight nothing works. So I end up trashing my room or kicking a hole in the wall or breaking a window. I get very violent. But I'm getting help for it now.

    Bottle

    I imagine my heart, my mind, as a bottle. All my thoughts and emotions are put in. The worse, the bigger. But I shove them in anyways. I don't know how to handle them, so I hide them away. Then, once in a while, my bottle cracks. It cracks and explodes. I break down,everything...

    I bottle up my negativity in most cases usually

    because I am unable to let them out without regret, and loss of control.. Think of this for me it is a pressured volcano waiting to top it's cap, and when it does everything is burned away, and nothing seems to come back for days even weeks. The thing is is can be unbearable...

    Just Take 'em Away

    I really want to take those meds that numb out all of your feelings. I don't want to even be happy. I just want to be able to function with the breakdowns or the crying or the suicidal thoughts. I just want to stop being so sensitive and emotionally unstable.

    Me

    For some reason I feel emotions on a really strong level. It gets so hard to handle. And when I try to deal I either get a headache or I can't breathe. Noone I know understands. And it's starting to feel like I'm just drowning every time I feel an emotion or a combination of...
