    I'm feeling such a mixed bag of emotions

    that I want to feel happy as I try to get myself to sleep, but I'm unsure. I'm a little confused. Discombobulated.

    I love two people, I love one more

    even though I don't know her too well, but she lives in the USA, and one is my therapist and I know she loves me, I just don't know what to do.

    I'm in a constant state of unrest.

    At any given moment I feel as though I am either about to explode violently or will break down and begin hyperventilating. This is my life and people don't seem to understand that I am doing the very best I can with these God forsaken emotions! I do not break for I am already...

    My Life Is At A Dead End

    And I don't know what to do. My husband only married me because he felt kinda sorry for me and because I'm a good person, he wanted to give me a better chance in life. As such, he doesn't want to spend any time with me because he thinks right now he should be single. I love him...

    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 feel like high school is a total waste of

    time. I was going to drop out and start college so in the next year I'd already be in uni, but then I got few people who persuaded me not to. Now I feel like I'm stuck because I don't believe I'm learning anything of use. But sometimes I also feel like I'm just complaining!
