    I'm Not Able

    It seems to me, that having gone through the loss of loved ones many times since I was 8 would  have given me some kind of insight.  Knowing what people need from us in their own time of loss.  But it did not give me any insight.  Nothing ever made me feel any...

    Try To Ignore It...

    I act like it doesn't happpen, when someone I care about, and Love, have died. I don't cope well at all, I do anything, and everything to forget that it even happened, I don't talk about it, I don't think about it, I don't do anything that has to do with coming to terms with what...

    Talking to idiots kills my brain cells. It takes way too much energy to educate someone that's be an idiot for so long. Why can't people just read books?

    My mom doesn't let me do anything. I can't hang out with friends, or even chill by myself at the public pool. Then she calls me weird, and complains that I'm at the house all day.
