    My husband looks right through me.

    He has no passion for me and we are no more than casual acquaintances. I need passion. I need fun. I need a partner.

    I've done much to improve my body

    but when it comes to other things well I'm at a loss towards that. No car,No credit,No job living on disability because of some health issues. What I don't have which I want most is a woman to hold me in her arms and tell me everything will be all right.

    I can say with complete honesty

    and sincerity, that I love my life. I am very blessed and fortunate to live the life I am living. However, I do recognize that there are some things I need to change and I'm willing to accept that and do whatever it takes to get where I need to go.

    I don't want to live like this. For the moment. I had a HUGE fight with my parents this morning, and now they are making me feel like my life is in the gutter. If by any chance miracles happen, then I would like one to happen right now. I went out with my friend to another...

    My life is pretty screwed up.

    My dad is in jail right now for assault and possession of drugs and I hate him for being an idiot and a jerk to me and my mom. My mom is in and out of drug rehab so neither of my parents are really around. I live with my grandma who doesn't really care about what I do or what...
