    I am in a roommate situation with my husband.

    it is so painful to receive no affection of any kind, just criticism and belittling. I take care of my grandchild (she lives with us) so I can't go anywhere. I don't mean to be such a downer, but I am so lonely I could cry. I am not looking for setting or anything gross...I just...

    I wish you could see what's wrong with me.

    it's all hidden, deep inside. Depression, anxiety, and a feeling that things are just not right. It is with these things I fight.

    Struggling with myself today.

    I'm allowing myself to look in those dark corners, to feel the unexpressed. They say it will help. eventually. right now it just hurts and I feel like a caged tiger looking for a way out. I keep asking for help but I guess no one wants to hold the tigers hand. I don't blame them...

    My parents don't understand how bad my back

    pain can be. I get sick all the time from my tonsils, and to back it up I have this pain that makes it hard for me to use my lower back. I can work out, but I can't bend over or squat. It's really bizarre.

    but that doesn't mean people don't understand what I'm going throw. It sometimes hurts a lot. But other times I like to show how strong I am to others and make sure they can't see the real me. I don't really know what to do anymore but I don't think I ever really did. It was...

    And then all of a sudden,

    she changed. She came back a completely different person with a new mindset, a new outlook, a new soul. The girl that once cared way too much about everyone and everything no longer cares at all. Congratulations for helping her become like this

    Do I Always Need To Explain?

    I try so hard to be strong for those around me. To not show how much I'm hurting. When I need to break down, I always do it alone, out of sight, out of reach. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. But occasionally, I just break, like I did yesterday. One person, anyone...

    Every noise gets my heart racing.

    When there is nothing to do,

    no reason to live, some people become reason for it. Then, this thought saves us that we are their love, their need, and a whole world to them. If we do not want to live, We have to live for them. When our souls cease to live, these people revive our dead spirits and give us...
