    I have these moments often.

    I have a pit in my stomach, a broad stroke of sadness that's foreshadowed by a fear of death and losing my mind like a tragic tale. Dying and have lost it all, not being one with this world and not having final say on myself. I'm crying but not hysterically, just a single tear...

    I feel so lonely in this town,

    I don't talk to anyone anymore. Everyone drifted away. When I walk around or go out, I feel like a tourist everyone stares cause I dress different and act different. I wish I could go back to Oregon, that's where I feel like I belong.

    I feel like there's something everyone else

    knows that I have never caught onto and people just never say anything about it because its assumed that everyone knows it. I feel like once (if?) I find out what this is it'll make my life a lot easier and happier. Any insight?

    They say different is better

    than normal, but sometimes normal seems so much easier. Normal doesn't mean you don't have problems, but it does mean you can handle them civilly, or in a calmer more evenly tempered manner. Not saying being different means you are Crazy, but my different might. Crazy because I...

    I know I'm different. I feel almost overpowered by my emotions. It's not necessarily a good or bad thing because I've came to understand the balance of both but I don't fit in. People don't dislike the difference in me which is apparently extremely visible to all, luckily enough...
