    I Can't Believe

    i can't believe that no one else has started this group yet.  i frequently dream that i die, and when i wake up, i realize that dying would be fine by me.  life has been a lot of wasted, futile effort for me.

    I'm a couple months away from turning 30

    and it's something I've been dreading for some time. I was always told that gay life ends at 30 and if you're still single it's pretty much s wrap. I know that's ridiculous but I've always had this negative association with aging. I've always felt out of place socially, even...

    Understanding Myself - The Greatest Challenge

    Let's say I have two options to chose from, one of which will have a good outcome for me, the other will not. Surprisingly I can't stop myself from choosing the one that won't. I can't stop myself from doing this, and no matter how much I want my life to become less chaotic...

    Tony’s Universal Theory – On “mental Health, And Other “problems”

    Hi ! Yes, I have a positive theory on “mental health”, so-called, which may apply to other areas also ? It is a little long, please forgive? Am discovering, as I write. Theory is simple. People, are just people. Not “patients”, “offenders&rdquo...

    I've Done It All

    My life has started off pretty rough but I never let that stop me from achieving whatever it was I wanted or needed. My parents separated before I was born. My mother and my father both had drug addictions. I grew up on and off with my mother because she would get so bad that she...

    I've Dedicated My Life To The Military.

    I spent my Junior and Senior years of high school in Air Force JROTC. And they were the best two years of my life. I knew what I wanted to do with my life. So, I enlisted in the Air Force last May. And I have been extremely proud of that decision. It's the only thing I can...

    Just Don'T Feel Like Living Anymore

    I'm a woman who has lost interest in living. I've been not very interested in living this life, for my whole life. It's so pointless, the races we run and the contests we enter. What is there to be excited about? I'm just dreadfully tired of being on the Earth. Any doctor...

    I Have Lost The Will To Live.

    I'm not suicidal, I just don't care whether I live or die. I wake up in the morning (evening/afternoon) disappointed that I survived the night. I don't do anything anymore, I never go outside unless I have a doctor's appointment, (unless I cancel it) There's nothing I want to...
