    Euthanize Me!

      People always give me a weird look when I try to explain myself in the context of public surviving. Maybe I have a very cynical look on life but if I had been a puppy instead of a human child, I would definately have been put-down for not having any survival skills as...

    Disappointment

    I go to sleep praying to never wake. I wake to disappointment. This life is so heavy. I know God is supposed to be there, but where?

    ...

    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. 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...
