    When Is It My Turn?

    Somedays I feel overwhelmed, like the world is out to get me.  I don't understand why I have been given so much to deal with and overcome.  I have had 6 surgeries in the last 11 years.  My most recent one was just 2 months ago.  I had a 3 level lumbar fusion...

    Am I Expecting Too Much?

    Hi,  Recently, I feel more and more enclosed. My emotions are closed and I feel like I'm wearing a mask when I'm with people. Even though I want to open up and share my feelings I think I will be too imposing and too annoying to be in their lives.

    Work And Money

    That's all life is about anymore. I feel like I shouldn't even call it a life. It's just work. School always has to come before my education. I'd rather not have to worry about jobs or grades. I wish it didn't have to be that way. I keep trying to tell myself it doesn't have to...

    Sometimes

    It will happen; I have anixety and can fall prey to this easily. Being who I am, isolation can occur. I want for things for change and have to do them myself, but just wish they weren't so hard. I know and have met some people who aren't this way, but they are few and far between...

    Loser Life

    My life sucks.  My fiancee decided to leave me 2 days before I went to settlement for the home we both picked.  And to add insult to injury, he won't even tell me why he left.  He only tells me, "I'm not ready to talk yet".  He is gone at this moment...

    A "new" Year? Really?

    So, it starts off the usual run of the mill celebration - food, fireworks, greetings. Going through the routine. However, I feel I have become so jaded that I can no longer "see" the goodness and hope that is usually connected with the bringing in of the New Year. Even worse is...

    Against Me

    The world cannot be against me, the people can.  Are everyone against me, Nope.  If it would be the case; well that would be okay too.   If there's good reasons or the truth to it, I cannot say nothing to it.
