    but what my _own kind_ has done to me has ripped me into shards _a while ago_. And I bet those idiots are so stupid they have no idea why I'd be angry at them... If I knew that the only people who actually had anything in common with me were such psychopaths I'd simply have...

    Thanks Dear Old Dad

    In my house we weren't even allowed to enjoy summer vacation when my dad was drinking. He always had us picking rocks out of his precious garden and splitting and stacking firewood. Here's the thing...we didn't have a fireplace or a wood stove! Granted, we were clearing out a...

    I Lose Sleep At Night

    This is awful. I end up taking hours to fall asleep at night because my brain goes through everything I need to do for the next day, week, year...lifetime. It's RIDICULOUS. I wake up groggy and my mind has already hit the ground running, going over mental checklists and to-do's...

    Ex Catholic

    I'm an ex-sangiuated catholic. I feel my guilt comes from my childhood and my mum's and dad's religious views. I'm spiritual and prefer eastern spirituality. Guilt the gift that always gives lol

    I wouldn't use the word "guilty"

    but I feel lazy when I'm unproductive. I cannot lay around or do nothing when there are things to be done or taken care of. It bugs me. I am loosening up a little as time goes by. Life is too short to worry about a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry or something minor that...
