    As much as I hate being alone with my thoughts,

    I'm terrified to talk about certain things. I don't want to scare people away. I have certain people in my life that I trust, but I'm terrified of having them drop me once they hear the f*cked up thoughts in my head. I just don't know what to do anymore...

    It Drives Me Insane

    I need something to preoccupy my brain. I can't stand just sitting there alone with my thoughts. I'm not one for watching tv but if it can stop me from thinking too much then I do it. When I'm alone my mind starts to wander into very bad places. I start to think of the negative...
