    I can't stand myself

    that I am fat and ugly. I always look and the mirror and cry. I feel unwanted and unloved. All these skinny girls with their hot boyfriends. I tried becoming bulimic, and that made me feel worse. I try to cut, but I felt like I would be letting all my close friends and family...

    Like Me

    If you are like me you like solitude.  You find yourself hiding every day from the people who who view you as an outcast.  You hate your body, your style, the way you walk, even the way you breathe.  You run from being social, resent those who are and hate the...

    Screwed Up

    I'm the most ******-up person I have ever known. Sure, from the outside, it may look like my problems are trivial (and I agree that I could have WAY worse ones), but on the inside, I am a ******* mess. I wish I could erase my memory until it's clean.
