    Are You Sure?

    I've often wondered about mental illness. Are there such things as disorders, or is it all a chosen state of mind?  I know I've felt "depressed" before, I believe we all have or will at some point.  I feel like it was almost a conscious decision to feel that way.  I was angry...

    With Food.

    There is part of me that wants to fight it. Part of me, that rises to the occasion. Part of me, that puts on combat boots. There is this part of me, that wants to win, that wants to overcome, that yearns for peace. But part of me hides. Part of me doesn't care about repercussions...

    Lost But Not Found

    Recently I have had an infuriating trend of losing things and it's really beginning to bug the hell out of me. I've later found most of those things, but what really gets to me about this is my new theory that the world, no the universe, is out to screw me over at my own expense...

    I try to be a good calm person

    but sometimes it goes so far that others call me lazy. I guess sometimes I really do waste time on meaningless things. It has brought me problems with my family and boyfriend. They tell me I need to be pushed to do things...that I don't have initiative. I hate it so much when...

    Trust Issues

    Every person has issues. I believe mine mainly has to do with trust. I find it hard to trust people at times, and it takes me quite a while to show them my real self. The root of this fear comes a long way, probably from my childhood. Coping with this can be hard at times...

    I have some people issues.

    When I'm at school people want nothing to do with me. I can't seem to interest people with my conversations or make many new friends. It's always been like this. I just wish I had people to talk to on a regular bases.

    We all have issues. The idea

    that anyone has it together is a myth... Despite the occasional deliberately constructed appearance to the contrary. The only thing that separates the men from the boys, the women from the girls, is self awareness. Do you or do you not know that you're half crazy? Do you...

    Things You Need To Question

    And as many times as I have helped or want to help or will help, I remain firmly planted with the idea that although I may experience similar issues or experiences, never will I say (or mean to say) "I know exactly what you are going through". I don't, no one does, except you...
