    Crying my self to sleep is one of the worst

    I was in seventh grade

    when it happened. This was the worst year of my life. I don't know why they thought this, but I walked into the computer lab and at my computer were the these words written on my pass code screen, "you are gay and bisexual". It hurt really bad.

    Back when I was raped,

    I cried myself to sleep almost everyday, shutting myself from the world, feeling hopeless. But that all changed when my cousin, a psychologist, helped me along with my best friend Martha. If it weren't for them, I'm sure my life wouldn't have been the same today.

    The Bed In Which I Cry

    Laying in my bed at night....I think to myself how large it is. It's too big for me now. It's a king size bed. I remember when we bought it. I smile at the memory. Our three little ones all crammed in one double bed with him and I. He ended up in the livingroom on the couch. I...

    I sometimes cry myself to sleep.

    When I think about something sad I cry. I cry and the tears roll down my face and on my pillow. My pillow gets soaked with the tears. I feel like the toxins in my body come out with the tears and I relax. I fall asleep without knowing. I seems to be relaxing in a way.

    Sleeping Is Sort Of A Relief.

    My only relief is to sleep. When I'm sleeping, I'm not sad. I'm not angry. I'm not lonely. I'm nothing. I love sleeping because it seems my life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake.
