    I Shouldn't...

    I shoudn't feel this way. I've always been insecure and I get paranoid about things I really shouldn't. It could possibly stem from the mental illness present on my dad's side of the family and the emotional troubles on both sides. I don't like my body although he loves it, most...

    Stupid Girl

    You're with a guy you work with, red flag from the start.  You knew you shouldn't have, but cupid had that arrow pointed at you, and you were an easy target.  You risk your great paying job to be with this man; times get hard and his beer can is his therapy.  "...

    Fighting Tooth And Nail

    I dreamt last night that my partner of almost two years cheated on me with a couple of women (at the same time, I might add), with all the graphic detail you can doubtless imagine. And then I seriously beat him up - he had bruises all over his face. Then in real reality, he woke...
