    Heavy Sigh

    Ever just not know where you are or what day it is. I know I'm breathing but I'm so mixed up that I don't know which way is up. It's like being in the ocean, diving down into the dark and not knowing which way to go to get out. Only I don't have an air tank and I feel like I'm...

    One thing I hate going through is experiencing

    being emotionally tired. I have lost interest in things that I used to love like socialising with people, which I don't know how to do anymore. It bothers me sometimes because, I think to myself that I shouldn't be putting myself through this. I feel as if i am being punished...

    After yesterday I honestly don't have energy

    for anything. Crying is about all I can do at this point and my tears are running out. I went to bed crying and woke up doing the same. He and I have big decisions to make. We do know what we have to do. It's just realizing that the last 15 years of my life were spent fighting...

    Emotionally Only

    I still have my life. And my brain, and my hope, and my health. And a roof on top of my head. That's more than some have. I just don't believe in feelings.   I'm emotionally drained from varied abuses I've lived since I was little. Drained for going on and biting it, often...
