    Death is solace . I think the most satisfying

    thing would be to have nothing at all. I think the mind needs a break, I'd consider it hell if I died and woke up in another body with my past life memories. Like, when the **** will this ever end? It's kind of nice knowing you have a stop button on your watch. Try...

    It's so noisy in here!

    Please shut down! Or at the very least quiet down some. Nothing is helping at the moment. The alcohol was a bad choice. I make lots of those. I can't make the music loud enough. It doesn't go any louder. Oddly pacing is only making me feel more violent right now. Grrrrr!!!!

    I always do things as

    if there are people watching me. Like any activity or action. I can imagine my friends sitting down in front of the screen watching me. For example, when I'm in the kitchen making something. I tend to make sure that I look good making it and not embarrass myself. Then I'll...

    Being unable to sleep

    for long periods of time is something that has become a normality for me. I've always known that waking up is an exceedingly difficult task for me; so I figure that avoiding sleep is an easy way to avoid waking up (I hope that makes sense). I feel comfortable in the darkness; I...

    When I turned fourteen I made this friend.

    She was a liar, everyone knew. But she also was broken. Like me. I gave her a chance. In the end it shattered me. Now I have all these scars, and all these memories... Since the beginning of this year I let it all go, all the pain of the last three years would die down, I'd be...

    I have an over-active mind.

    Literally. When I was in highschool I went to a counselor who did this thing where they tested my brain waves. She showed me my test and my brain never stops. My waves were everywhere. Which I'm sure has a bit to do with my anxiety. I can't ever just relax and stop over...

    My mind, it seems, communicate with other

    My mind is in a place full of noise.

    Constant buzzing, full of thoughts, ruminating, contemplating. I figured that there's no use complaining on this gift/curse but it's hard to control how I view it when my mood fluctuates. So then i thought about how i could better use my mind. Eventually, this grew into...

    Constantly going, it never stops,

    I worry about everything! I am the provider, I am supposed to be the backbone of my family, but yet my secret makes me feel insecure and I feel like a failure, I feel like I am betraying my wife and children. My brain never shuts off, I wish it would, I just want to not think...

    I just want to drive a few hours away.

    Have a night of just being someone else. No obligations. No nothing.
