    Depression and anxiety.

    I always put up a face, a smiling and perfect me. But them I'm dead inside and sometimes I blow my top. At that point I just freak out and get to the point where I'm dying and hurting myself...I'm sorry.

    Kicked Out Again

    Recently, I've been kicked out of school for not meeting their "standards" (although I provided them with doctors notes) in regards to my "academic efforts", and as I arrived home to tell my dad about my day he said that "I can't do anything right". Maybe he's right..maybe I'll...

    That Day

    I have always felt that I was sure to do something fantastic with my life. I know it sounds cheesy and arrogant, but I have been told since I was young that I could do anything. I was in the top of my class all through high school, and even went to a school for gifted students...

    I Give Up

    I wasn't even planned. I was even born a mistake. My conception caused my father to turn into a crippling alcoholic, and my mom still can't seem to leave him, I guess it's some desperate attempt to keep the family together after I came along and ruined everything. I've always...
