    I'm Feeling Anxious About So Many Things Right Now.

    I lost my job 7 months ago, foreclosed on my home, closed out my 401k savings, and am over 50 years old. How pathetic is that? Oh wait, that's only the beginning. I have two sons: one who is doing well, and barely keeps in touch with me. The other keeps in touch enough to tell me...

    At all. I was at soccer practice yesterday,

    and I realized how separated I am from others again. I guess I'm a lifetime loner. Which isn't bad, I'll find my place eventually.

    Have Never Fit In And Don't Know Why

    I don't think I've ever 'fit in' in my life. I really don't know why. In school I was always akward and didn't have many friends. I always felt I didn't belong, like I was just a tag along in any group. I've never held the same ideas and beliefs as everyone else. As an adult...

    My short black hair, inquisitive

    Standing Out

    Instead of fitting in or doing what everyone is doing or hanging out with the "popular" kids or going on clubs/bars at night, I tend to do things my way. I may not be popular, I may not go to bars/clubs, I may not drink nor smoke, I may not always go out with friends, and I may...
