    Just Take 'em Away

    Holy Moly

    Emotions are becoming too much to handle. I recently found my birth mother online and cannot reach her, I feel like I've hit a wall at 500mph. I don't know if I want to cry, or be happy... this is not a new feeling.

    I'm horrible at wording how I feel, I tend to hide my emotions, until I'm alone. I cry alone, and release anger and hurt alone. I only show when I'm 'happy
