    Can't Go On

    I now understand how folks get hooked on medication. OMG the pain in the body brings you to your knees, and you beg God to let it stop. People, no way you don't want anybody to look at you as you struggle with every step. Tears flow at the drop of a hat, oh yea emotions run deep...

    I Hate Fighting

         I can't stand the fact that to some degree or level, it is a constant to have to fight. Either we're fighting our way up the proverbial ladder of success, or we're fighting in our personal lives, or we're fighting our kids to get better grades, or we're...

    I Can't Do It All On My Own............

    Not all the time. The physical pain, that I can usually fight through. It's the emotional pain that can do me in. Those nights when I want is someone to hold me when I feel like I'm shattering apart. When the last thing I want to hear is........."Get over it", "...

    Sometimes I Feel Like I Can't Do This Anymore...

    I feel so flawed as a person. I am shy, sensitive and emotional. I am guarded and hard to get close to at times. Hurt me and I will go into myself. I am such a guarded person when someone hurts me. However, sometimes I worry that I over react and that my perceptions on things are...

    Run

    No, I can't always fight through it. So I leave. Does that make me a quitter? A coward? Yes. I don't like having to admit it, but sometimes I just can't handle a situation. I leave, even though the problem will find me again. Maybe by that time, I will be a stronger person...
