    Even when I get a day off, even when I'm being left completely to my own devices, for some reason, I always feel stressed. No matter what I do, I feel harried, and/or just plain interrupted. If kiddo, fiance, roomie, dog, or cat don't interrupt me, then I'll interrupt myself. I...

    I Think We All Do At Times....

    I think we all do at times. We would not be human with human emotions if we did not. Life is a struggle and it is up to us how we cope with it.

    Lift the Load Please.

    It is a struggle to go through the motions of a life.  It is exhausting.  My days last forever because I don't sleep much.  How do you move forward?  I am stuck.

    Into More Pieces Than My Heart Was Made Of.

    Does it break my heart? Of course. Every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of. I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent. I never thought about things at all. Everything changed, and that distance wedged itself between me and my happiness. It...

    Probably the worst thing you can be in life is ugly. Most people don't like ugly people. They may like them as a friend but never anything more
