I Have Ups and Downs

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 262 People

    My life feels like a roller coaster.

    I'm constantly going up and down. I know everyone has their bad and good days, but with me, it changes multiple times in a day. One second I'm having a good day and the next second I'm not. Sometimes it changes for no reason at all.
