    I've eaten way to much today,

    I do everyday, just binge and comfort eat. I feel discusting and fat now. I just want to stop eating and drop 3 stone immediately. I want my old clothes to fit and I want to be skinny.

    Never Happy Endings On These Dark Sets

    Its just all wrong. And the one thing that felt right went left. I climbed up and fell down. I woke up and fell asleep. I drove fast and flew by. I wanted and didn't take. I have fallen and can't get up. I attempted but failed. I studied and forgot. I felt like a winner but lost...

    Goody Two Shoes Freak

    I was always that weird quiet kid who always knew the answer in school.  My family moved a lot and I was introverted so I didn't have many friends and honestly, I didn't really want any.  I hated kids my age for being stupid and cruel to each other.  I hated adults...

    Been There, It Gets Better

    If you hate yourself, it means you have empathy. It means you're human. It means you care so much about others that you're willing to damage yourself for their sake. It means you punish yourself so cruelly every second of most every day, for the sake of those you love, and...

    Sick Of Beind Depressed? Enjoyment Vs Pleasure

    When depressed, we turn to drugs, meaningless sex, alcohol, food full of fat and sugar, movies, video games, etc. These all give us small spikes of pleasure and do some good in lifting the gloom, but when it's over, what's left? We have less money, possibly STDs, gain weight...

    so I don't have to look at myself. I hate myself. I hate the way I look. I am a failure at 21 I feel so horrible. I just don't tell anyone how much I hate myself. I let everyone think km happy when I'm not. I'm not happy. I'm really not.

    Born The Wrong Way...

    You will laugh, you will judge me, you won't understand... But still I want to write it. It began when I was little, I was only five and I already hated myself. I hated the fact that looking in the mirror was painful. I was looking at myself and thinking 'this is not me!'. I...

    I'm not enough. I'm not enough.

    I'm not enough. It's not an opinion, to me, it's a fact. I've never been enough. I'm ugly. I'm clinically obese. I'm not one bit desirable. Trust me, I know this.

    It Should Have Been Me

    I had a twin brother; when I was old enough my mother told me about him. He died a long time ago even before I was born. The doctor saved me but he was too weak. I tried to cope with it, the thought that I had a brother I'd never get to know. It was an accident, its something...

    I am a funny person but my mood change quickly. I always fake a smile. I am fine at one moment and then the next I hate myself and I don't know what to do anymore. My life is becoming a living hell.
