    small and others become so bad I've literally passed out and stopped breathing today wasn't bad so I was asking my mom to take me to the store she said she wanted to drive me (and from my PTSD if you've read that I can barely get in a vehicle at all) so I started having images...

    Sometimes it becomes to much.

    Sometimes I don’t want to move. 
Living is so terrifying. 
No one understands my irrational fear. 
My friends drop like flies when I’m alone and then there’s no one.

    Happy New Years 2013
