    I love wearing my "Free hugs" shirt.

    It helps to make friends and feels so good to get a free hug . No strings attached. But sadly I have lost my shirt and now conventions, scifi and anime, are banning them due to creeps.

    There are some days when you feel the darkness.

    There are days when you just want to hide. A strong melancholic feeling takes over. It's so suffocating and overwhelming. It hurts so bad inside and you just feel like running away too far where it's only you and no one else.You almost feel like it's going to drown you. I wish a...

    Dont get me wrong, ive been hugged in the

    recent past. its just they seem so empty lately. Its like a half-assed handshake, you can tell when there just doing it as an obligatory greeting gesture. I need a real hug, the kind that makes a person feel warm-n-fuzzy and.. y'know, loved. I kinda miss that feeling.

    Call For A Group Hug

    I really need a group hug right now.  A few people have reached out to me today and I haven't really felt able to respond. I just wanted to say thanks.  I'm not in best form at the moment but a hug will suffice for now.

    Omfg. I said to my friend

    that I need help. That I really want to relapse. Then I said "Never mind it doesn't matter." And she was like "okay :)" she then went on to say Bob The Builder. It's like she doesn't even care.

    Please

    I'm struggling right now. I'm lonely and depressed, despite the medication I'm on. I just want to wrap my arms around someone and hold them. I want to make them feel safe and loved and supported. I don't know how close I am to the edge of what I can take. Please?

    I'm losing all of my friends

    and I honestly feel so alone, I mean sure I have 1 friend on here and a few on Instagram, but it wouldn't kill to have a friend who I wouldn't have to contact through a screen all the time, would it?

    So I don't know what is wrong with me

    but something definitely is. I think I have lost my mind. I can not think like I used to. Nothing seems normal or even real.

    After feeling like I am in a downward spiral

    in my life it is hard to look at all the good things that I have, my beautiful children, food, a roof, and the material things I use through the day. The loss of a 13 year relationship, as well as so many other things in my life has me feeling like I will never feel the touch...
