Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 36 People

    10 Years And Counting

    A while back, while working for Wal-mart (thank God I don't work for them anymore), I met a girl who I'll refer to as Ann (her middle name). At first, other people were a bit weary about her, because she was a dead ringer for an ex-girlfriend I had recently broken up with. I must...

    I Still Haven't Shed My Last Tear for him...

    ...Don't think I ever will. I wasn't always happy to see him. I didn't always agree with what he was saying. He was the sort of bloke who narrow-minded snobs wouldn't dare take a second look at, and it would often take a fair deal of patience to weave through his stubborn ways...

    No Movie Dates For Us

    My boyfriend has epilepsy, but it's only triggered by flashing lights. He can also get a seizure if he gets too scared or nervous. He got his first one at a movie theater in 7th grade. He got diagnosed and now can't go into movie theaters. It's a little disappointing to me that...
