    This paranoia hangs over my head like a veil of

    confusion, desperation, and terror. Anyone who does not understand paranoia, it is basically like thinking about anything that could go wrong and assuming the worst. Then dwelling on that for hours and hours until it starts to eat you alive

    It's just so frustrating.

    I feel like I have so much I need to vent but I just simply can't. I don't know with who. I don't know how. And most of all WHAT to vent. I feel lost and hollow like I'm in a pitch black room. Everything I've done is just a mess.
