I Have Gone Through A Lot

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 319 People

    There it is again, The lump in my throat.

    Will it begin? Or shall it start to coat, My esophagus, My intestines, Like a fungus, Like an infection. Dripping down my insides. My digestion, Of a hardship- a pound Of pure isolation. What did I consume, Or it me? A lifetime of doom? A lifetime of me?

    Overcast With Tears

    It is overcast here today. The sky is a vibrant blue and the fluffy white clouds scurry across the sky looking for some fun. The skies are grey. No sun caresses my skin or touches my hair or warms my chill. I feel such a loss. The numbness is not as bad, but it remains in this...
