    Alone & Overwhelmed

    My husband works nights.  After I get home from work, I have to make sure the kids do their homework, get dinner (which my kids never want what I make - even when its something they like), get them to sports, and keep up with housework.  (My husband does housework...

    Take A Moment.

    With the end of the year approaching, it's that time again where one reflects on everything. Decisions, regrets, experiences - every moment shared, every moment you can remember just flashes through your eyes. Moments just fly by, and it's rare to see someone take their moments...

    When I am alone in a cold chilling way,

    a deep sadness way, (but don't want to call it lonely because I don't exactly think I am missing anything... there IS no other piece...), when I feel this way, it makes my heart full. Brings it to the brim with the desire to help others, or "help," to go in that direction...

    Today I will sleep. sleep the day away to

    escape the emptiness that fills the spaces in my room. Sleep to escape the failures I feel so deeply inside myself. I will sleep in my empty bed with an empty heart and a darkness that circles about my head from dark to dark. A lonesome creature like me, pretending to act...

    A few days ago, I went into a terrible down

    mood. I was miserable. I cut my wrist with a mechanical pencil... I was seriously thinking about suicide. My cousin was supposed to meet me to go out. My mom was sleep... My cousin has a key, so she entered the house because I wasn't returning her calls. When she saw me like...

    I have a hubby and my kids it is not that

    but I miss friends. I rarely get invited to the parties my friends have and I always end up bending over backwards to make them like me. I revert back to the lonely girl really really quickly. I hunger for attention and once I'm tossed away like the old toy my heart sinks.

    Today I have felt more alone

    Not necessarily a bad thing to feel alone.

    Alone is when I feel I can collect my thoughts, find my center, and rev up to get pick up the pace once more in the direction where I got diverted from. Alone is where there is no noise, no distraction, no one breathing on my neck. Alone is when I am able to hear that still...

    I don't like admitting the fact

    that I feel lonely. Even when I'm with family I feel this way. I act like all is okay and try to go with the flow but deep inside me I know I'm lonely. I tell myself that i won't feel alone in the future and that's probably the one thing that keeps me going.

    I thought EP would help with my depression.

    ..you know, kind of anonymously talking to others who are going through the same thing. All it turned out to be is an app with 50 year old horny men and teenagers who's stories make me want to cry.

    You feel so alone, wanting attention,

    wanting to be desired. Wanting to know that d*mn it, he wants me. Wanting him to show me that I'm his woman. Wanting him to show me that I'm the one he wants. I wait and wait. I cry. I'm miserable. I feel guilty for wanting to have my needs met somewhere else. I feel guilty for...

    I'm married to a man whom I've known 7 years.

    He use to be the only person that could make me smile, but now when I look at him my stomach turns. He has an addiction and was doing very well. He relapsed. We are due to have a baby in October and I just feel alone. He says he is happy and excited but all I see is an immature...

    I feel like there's no one

    who truly understands me. I feel like I'm always on the outside looking into the world, like I don't belong here at all. Now I'm not suicidal or anything, I just feel out of place. Even when I try to communicate with people there's always this disconnect. I feel like a zombie...

    Every night I go to sleep secretly,

    silently loving someone so much that it hurts..loving someone who takes me for granted, one who will never value me. This person is not in my life, but I painfully love them.

    So not we all? I think this is the most common
