    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...
