    This Isn't My Reality

    Craziness Runs In The Family

    Well other than the fact that schiz runs in my family, I'm also a writer, which just as most people know makes you a bit detached from reality. I can never tell the difference between my dreams and reality and am often confused by it. It seems to have gotten worse in the last...

    Young And Old

    I've always wondered if something was wrong with me.  When I was younger, I felt old.  Like I could see things and understand things that my peers around me couldn't, and didn't feel like I was really ME.  I tried telling my parents about it and they sent me to one...

    My Reality Isn't Quite Their Reality

    I live in my head way too much. As a ridiculously obsessive writer, I find that my reality and life is influenced by what I imagine and write when really it should have no effect on it. I know what I write is fiction, but I think WAY too much. I know that sounds impossible, but I...

    More like most of the time. Reality is awfully boring. Stories, art, fiction, daydreaming, entertainment more interesting
