    I hate waking up every day seeing what

    I don’t know where to start

    and I’m not sure if I will be understood because I’m not sure I fully understand it all myself so it may not make any sense, but I have to get it out of my head. I’ve not been feeling right for a long time. I’ve been feeling so depressed and I have no self esteem, no...

    That moment when you need someone

    so bad that you almost reach out to other people, But then you realize that no one could possibly understand how badly you want to rip your own hear from your chest and curse it for all the feelings you have before slowly bleeding to death.

    And have done so for over 4 decades now.

    Like most I have my ups and downs though mostly downs. I am happy to chat with others in the same boat to just be an ear if they need it or help if I can.

    They don’t know how “group work”

    assignment is a trigger for stress, anxiety, and fear. Why must it be fear? Because I had a history with it—a history of being unfit, friendless and alone. It causes my body to feel that sensation again. It is not the work that I am afraid of. It is the finding a group in the...
