    Abandonment Anxiety

    I was born to parents who loved me. I had extended family that spoiled and adored me. I was never abused or mistreated, I was very fortunate. Yet, I've had this issue for as long as I can remember. I get severe anxiety when someone I love is leaving for any extended period of...

    once again back to square one on ep.

    people leaving my groups now. people in my circle barely contacting me like always or ignoring me. I don't know anymore maybe it's me maybe that's what I think. I'm not too good at the moment. I guess severe depression isolation and trust issues are uncool in a person. sorry...

    One of the worst feelings in the world is

    feeling abandoned by someone or those close to you. Rather than being sad or angry, I am used to it actually, used to being alone, not being wanted. I've experienced it many times throughout my life. What may sound contradicting is that I no longer get my hopes up yet I continue...

    Ms. Mullins was the kind of neighbor

    who was nice enough to everyone, but people always wondered what she was really like. She was thoughtful, neat, friendly, and offered candy to the neighborhood kids each Halloween. It's funny, I remember how nice she smelled. One time, it was in the morning, I knocked on her...

    Growing up, I was a good kid.

    .. Until they started medicating me for ADHD and I became uncontrollably irritable and then later depressed. In that time, I went from being love and cherished to being despised and told my tears were fake anytime I had a very real breakdown. My most vivid memories of growing up...

    Abandoned again. Why does he expect me to be

    understanding when he's not? All I want is a gesture of his affection. His time. He knows all the right things to say but is it fair? Is it fair that I have one day off and that he has to go out with his friends on this day? Even though he asks me it's not really a question...

    I don't know how much longer I can cope with these feelings of abandonment. I'm tired of people saying they care about me, but their actions do not match up to their words. I've been in some intense emotional pain lately and I feel like no one cares. Just because you say you care...

    At this moment I feel like a dog. You know the kind that no one can take care of anymore because it's too much of a burden. It costs too much too feed or no one wants  to watch after it. Some might call it self pity but when you do the history,, it's nothing but the truth. I...

    Maybe I don't deserve to have friends

    or anybody in my life. All I end up doing is push people away and make them leave when I need them most. Maybe it's just better to be dead cause people make it pretty clear that life is better off without me in it. I'm so ******* tired of this.
