    Waiting To Have Enough Strength To Climb Out Of The Darkness

    The Group Name Says It All

    Ever stand in a crowded room, people happy, smiling, talking to each other, and wondered "How come nobody wants to talk to me?" Why is it, that the whole world seems to look away, when all I want is a friend to talk to? Sometimes, even laying in my wife's arms, I feel...

    Lost In A Mess

    I feel that no one understands me and I am alone in my pain. Do you have any idea what it's like to be trapped so far into yourself. you're unable to express what you're thinking let alone who you are?

    The Worst Feeling Ever

    This is the worst feeling, at least, for me. It's just sad, sick, stupid. Whenever I feel this way, I just feel so helpless...like, I wanna get out of there. It's not good at all.

    Hi, My Name Is Unimportant, And Unnoticed.

    I have no close friends. I seem to mainly have acquaintances. I pretty well always get blown off by "friends" when someone better wants to hang with them. I can't stand letting people too close to me because I know they'll leave anyway. I've only let one girl really close to me...

    Personally I don't like crowds.

    I feel uncomfortable in places with many peoble with an unpredictable behaviour. I've only been to a couple of big concerts (Bob Dylan in 1980, San Fransisco) and one of my favourite groups, Camel, maybe about a year later (probably not a "big" concert, but I loved it!). A...

    I Have No Joy In My Life

    I am old, nearly 70. I have never learned to socialize and find it extremely awkward to make conversation. I would be better living as a recluse or even dead. I grew up in a family where there was no affection, no loving words or caressing. And so I never learned what love...
