    I Think I Drain Those Closest To Me

    Its just so hard to put in words exactly HOW I feel.  I consider myself pretty intelligent, though emotionally immature.  I have been seeing a therapist for about a year now and recently he said he believes (cause he can't diagnose) that I have compulsive thoughts.  I said "at...
