    Dont Quit

      When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is...

    Lost With No Dirrection

    I just started feeling this way just before Christmas holidays. I found a new love and had all the hope in the world. She did not know me but I liked her a lot. My world came crashing down because the light that I seen her in had faded (metaphorically). I am not giving up on her...

    Trying To Find The Cause Of The Fog

    I get really frustrated when this mind fog comes, and I can't think straight.  I'm wondering if it's a psychological problem I have sometimes, or if it has to do with food & drink I have, and/or seasonality.  Tomorrow I want to try quitting coffee for a month and...

    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?

    Concentration

    That is a foreign subject to me. So many thoughts, pictures, and ideas inside my head that focusing on one takes away all of my energy. I've decided to quit concentrating and just going with the flow of my imagination. If it's important I learned to just write it on my hand. c:

    Dreaming

    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.

    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...

    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.
