    Definitely Me

    the world is against me I realize that now. It wasn't always like that but it is now. Sometimes I don't even think anyone can comprehend how much. I have had so much stuff happen to me. And now it seems like the world is against me again. I'm doing wrong again. I can never please...

    but let me list why I feel this way: -Since moving to PA, I have yet to meet any friends. I moved out here with family 9 years ago -Scratch that, I did meet a wonderful friend last year, but he stopped being friends with me after he begged me to tell him about his boyfriend's...

    I am tired. I have been fighting against the

    world since I remember myself. It's not as bad now. Actually the situation has improved dramatically. But the basic fear is still there: I feel that I am not allowed to be myself. That if I dare to express who I am then I will be in danger. This has to change. I need a life and...

    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...

    She's the perfect girl,

    but I can't have her. I love her, but I can't have her. She loves me, but I can't have her. We tell each other we want a future together, but we know it can't happen.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
