    Trouble Communicating

    I have a very active thought-life. I work with a group of women in my age range and older, and it seems that whenever I try to join into the conversation, I can never keep afloat. I always say something that isn't what I meant at all. Or, I say something that makes no sense and I...

    For The Lack Of A Better Title, I Am Sick Of This.

    It feels like I do not belong in this world. Like I should be in an alternative universe or world, where we do not exist in any physical form. Just as thoughts, or spirits if you will. It may be mildly crazy, I know. However, the physical world is something I would live without...

    Screaming "I Want to Help You" and Nobody Wants Help!!

    I see a lot of bad things happen and the most common response from people is "OMG, I can't believed this happened!"  And I look at things with my analytical mind and can see several reasons why it happened, and several ways it could have been avoided.  But I...

    Something's Missing

    Something's missing, and I don't understand it... I have very good friends. I have loving parents. I have a comfortable residence, go to a very prestigious university, and I'm enjoying what I'm doing there. But somehow, I just don't connect with others. I'm shy, I'm reserved, I...

    I'm Connected Backwards

    I've been told quite often that I am one of those types of people that is perfectly content in their own little world. I'm an only child. My imagination quite often has been the only thing that keeps me company. I am for the most part a loner, an introvert. It takes a lot out of...

    i typically feel like i speak another language. i never feel connected to anyone or anything anymore. in times that i should be moved or whatnot, i kind of feel like i am at a distance, watching me, as if i was a character in a movie. i probably need therapy.

    Before EP I really wondered.  I thought I would outgrow that youthful alienation.  That feeling that I was a spectator in someone elses world.  That feeling that this was somehow NOT IT.  That I was not having an authentic experience.  I remember not having close friends and...

    I find that more and more I retreat into this fantasy world when I feel down.  It feels so good to be there and lately it seems real when I'm there.  When I come back, I feel worse, so I try to go back there.  It's getting pretty bad.

    Out of Step

    My Dad is one of if not the wisest people I will ever know. And he once told me, in the late 1990s, meaning it as a compliment, that I was a dinosaur. My ideas and values were kind of in line with how he came of age in the mid-1960's, not the late 1990's. People just seem...
