    Right now, I'm drunkenly crying myself to sleep.

    A quiet beer after dinner became three, chased by three or four shots of neat rum. The pressure is too much - a tough recent breakup, adjusting to living alone, high academic expectations, a demanding job that holds the key of a future graduate degree... This is not what I am...

    After reading what some of you have gone through, I feel like a fool looking for attention. My life really hasn't been that bad. I grew up quite sickly, I've had to have multiple surgeries etc. But it never bothered me because I always had family and friends who loved me dearly...

    Rode a cab last night

    and the driver asked where should we go. I have him pull over for 3 minutes but I really can't think of where to go. He asked again and I started bursting into tears so he just asked where I live and took me there 😫

    8 months ago I went through a bad breakup.

    Eight year relationship with a man I loved, gone. Just like that. My world got turned upside down. Left my home and have been a wandering nomad ever since. Now staying with family. Living out of a suitcase, dingy building, dingy apt, sleeping on a couch with bedbugs and roaches...

    Drivers Ed

    Something I did awhile back... When I was sixteen I began the process of getting my license. I experienced a sizable anxiety attack before the test. Consequently, I drank a few, lots, of shots of vodka before hand. I passed the text and am currently called an alcoholic.

    I was a freshman at a very good college

    until 3 days ago, when my parents cut all financial support and kicked me out of the house. Now, instead of pursuing my degree in the medical field, I'm scrambling to find a minimum wage job. I have no idea where to go from here.

    I think.. Maybe i just hit rock bottom.

    This is one sad evening. I think you define something rock bottom when you've done something actually too embarrassing to tell here out of desperation. Yes, I just did something I've never done before, but because I'm already too desperate, I had to do it. And the worse part of...
