    Giving up isn't even the words.

    I'm kinda a nutcase if you call it. Today hasn't been my day. My parents are so obsessed about getting this new house. To start off this morning I limply got out of bed and fell because my legs were numb and my chest was bruised. Where it came from I do not know.

    Ready For Help

    I can't stand this anymore. I'm ready to be done with life or get the help I need. I have no money & I don't know how to get in-patient help or where to go. I just can't take it anymore & it's not fair to my daughter.

    When the littlest thing goes wrong,

    it brings me to a bad place..reminds me of this black cloud that's been hovering over my entire life. Why can't I just see it as a speed bump...instead of as a complete failure? I'm loved by many, but feel empty. Hate this!
