I Have An Addiction

    Hey I just wanna say about my experience.

    I have Trichotillomania which is a condition where you pull out your eyelashes. It was when I was in about year 4/5 of primary school and I was sitting with my sister teacher at lunch. She noticed I had no eyelashes and she told my mum and dad. They made me take eyelashes (only...

    I got drunk out on the town,

    alone. Security wouldn't let me into a bar and I had a meltdown. I thought they had taken my ID so I started emptying my pockets, taking my clothes off to show I didn't have it. I made a scene. People were embarrassed for me. So out of my character. I can't drink alcohol in...

    I am addicted to lingerie,

    I really am. I love it and I own tons of it - very sexy pieces, and they look amazing on me (I promise, I really don't have a head as big as this room). I find all kinds of fun pieces so I, inevitably, buy them for myself. They make me feel fun, flirty and, yep, you guessed...

    My addiction is human imperfection

    and suffering. I always have to find the pain in others, their secrets and feelings. I want to be able to depend on someone through a promise of pain, fear, anger and a twisted love. Someone who can see the savage boy in me restrained by morals, love and hope.

    Coca-cola. The soda is the only one
