    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...

    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...

    Drained

    I feel very drained lately when it comes to people. Lot's of energy when it comes to my two loves (acting, and special someone), but so many people in my life wanting things from me. It feels like they are clawing at my limbs. Pulling at me. Dragging me into their black hole...
