    My husband hides me from his family.

    We are married for two years now. He has not told them that he's married nor have I met any of his family. He talks to them over the phone and spends special occasions with them like Christmas, birthdays, etc. while I stay at home. I don't know maybe he is ashamed of me or just...

    The Biggest Lie I Continuously Tell Myself

    On most days, I know perfectly well what I need to do.  Sometimes, I wish very much that I did not know.  In a way, I long for the time when I did not know, and it did not matter if I knew or not, because someone would always be there to help bail me out if things went...

    I don't know what's real anymore.

    I don't know what I feel and if what I think I do feel is real. I don't know who I am anymore. And I don't remember who I was. I feel so lost.

    I'm so stressed in my life right now.

    I have so much going on. I have a court date in April because my uncle raped me. I already had the arraignment and I had an anxiety and panic attacks during the whole thing. I don't know if I can go throught that again. I don't know if it's worth it anymore.

    I feel like high school is a total waste of
