    The Mind

    My mind was very fogged up.  I didn't know if I was coming or going.  It was really bad.  A ball of confusion.  And then it got better...anyway better then what it was.  How can a brain live through that and get kinda normal again?

    My mind is hazardous due to it's notorious tendency to be cluttered. Memories strewn here, jokes plastered here and here a huge stain of sadness. Maybe sometimes my brain shifts in it's own grime and I can see the light for a little. Maybe a few days. Maybe only for a couple...

    I have so many moments

    where I have a rather difficult time finding my focus. This makes for a very foggy day. It's usually stress induced by the high expectations I put on myself. The mind becomes overwhelmed and the thoughts just start rushing around in random order.

    Scattered Pieces

    I hate the feeling I get when I have a million things on my mind and I have no idea how to deal with it all. There are days where I'm all calm and happy and others when I turn into a completely different person. I really want to organize my thoughts somehow. That might help.

    My sense of time and focus constantly escape me and I wonder how I'll survive without my parents. I have no ambition left. I feel like my own memories don't belong to me, and I'm failing to connect. It comes and goes, I just need something to laugh about most days.
