    Trauma

    I read an article recently by Sigmund Freud. It was about a female who was sick with no medical proof of an existing ailment. She also became phobic of drinking water and she dove in and out of consciousness. Freud used Hypnosis and Talk Therapy to find the source of ...

    If I Were The Sky

    If I were the sky I’d always be high But the world would drown in rain And every day it’d begin again If I were the ocean I couldn’t drown The sinking feeling wouldn’t stay around If I were a mountain I could stand tall At the edge of it all I wouldn’t fall If I...

    My Personal Demons

    A warm wave flows through my body , a QUICK flood of warmth, from my toes up to my face. My pulse is racing, I'm sweaty and hot, yet cold chills are running up my spine. Butterflies in my stomach. Thoughts are racing through my head. Your a worthless drug addict, no wonder your...

    I forget how intelligent I can be.

    It's always when I write on paper that it shows. I feel that I adjust to my idiotic surroundings to much and recently it's put me in a dark place

    My Dark Moments

    When I go back and reread my journals from my teenage years, there are three books that even now give me a cold chill when I read them. I don't remember what I was going through at that period of my life, but it was dark and painful. I don't even remember writing some of those...

    Right Now......like most times I have this

    point in my life where I focus on myself listen to some really sexual music or depressing either way, to make myself feel better. Make myself look pretty and what not and then I find quotes and reflect them on my life and it's like repeated awakenings. For example my main artist...

    and he lets us see the sun for another day with his grace and mercy.

    Monthly Sometimes

      I can usually feel it coming dark, unavoidable and depressing to weigh my shoulders down yet again for it sometimes happens monthly if I am too overly stressed. It's a dark time, a depressing time and a time when there is nothing right in the world. And most of all it...

    And How!

    They don't happen often... but they do happen! With my tragic background of my life, to expect anything different would be kind of cruel. It's like asking me to not be human, imho. =p My childhood was not a happy one. My father was an abusive crack-addict, for one. We were a...

    Another Struggle

    The more I reveal intimate details about my life to the people I care about, the more they realize that I cannot be helped when I enter dark periods in my life. They try to help and I love them for the effort, but sometimes I need to go through some of these times alone. There...

    Darkness In The Light

    I fall into a darkened state of mind every single month. Consciously, I recognize that these dark times precede my period...my cycle, yet I'm powerless to stop these feelings from commandeering my thoughts, my mood, my emotions, and my behavior. What's strange is that all these...

           I was 5 years old and I knew that I hated it here on Earth. I had intense desire to leave then, because on some deep level I knew that my life was going to suuuuck. I was right and all my life experiences have been traumatic. I feel that...

    I am a bubbly, happy go lucky girl.

    Very optimistic, always smiling, living for others. What people don't know is that I have a gaping black hole in my soul and lots of dark feelings are lurking out if it. Usually I manage to hide it under being busy, doing a lot of things like work, cooking, painting, playing...
