    I was just reading a book

    and just had this heavy feeling all of a sudden then my eyes started to water. I tried to assess the cause but I'm not even sure what's happening. I still have that feeling I get before crying my eyes out and I know it won't go away until I do but I just can't let myself go and...

    I think I'm mentally ill.

    Apparently I told a friend I kinda love him(I'm confused if I really do love), and that friend sounded like he's rejecting me since he told me he had a lot of crushes. I smiled and replied 'Why would I?' when he asked if I hate him for that. Few hours back, no feelings about it...

    Crashing

    I see you in the distance and I sigh. I can’t seem to catch up although I continue to trod along the sandy shore. It seems I am stuck in quicksand. I can’t breathe; all I hear is my heart beating loudly in my head. The waves crash against me as I drown in my own tears.

    A girl... passed away today. I heard the news and fell into sobs. Its faded but tears are still rolling down. I can't stop. I feel so sad, so devastated. She was a friend's niece.... She was the most powerful and strongest girls I have ever been told of.

    Sometimes

    Well I knew last night 'cause it freakin' HURT! But I cry easily these days. A friend makes a comment, one of the guys does something stupid, it doesn't take much for me to shed a tear.

    Midlife

    I am 46 or 47 years old- I can't even remember but my life is past tense. I don't really have a laid out future. My life will get better as along as I keep taking incremental steps but its hard. I don't always feel this alone but on the days I do I never know why.

    Can't Stop Crying Either

    Sometimes I just burst out crying, I don't know why, but it's the same kind of situation that leads to it. Sometimes someone I haven't talked with for awhile messages me or something, and I burst out crying. I realize "I'm not alone" and that "people exist" although I think they...
