    Fear

    I just don't understand my fears. I can lie in my bed happily one day and miss my girlfriend and want nothing more than to have her in my arms and the other day I have her with me and I'm so scared because she's so close that I can't breathe. I always tell myself that when I'm...

    bad grammar there, honey. but its not sometimes, its all the time. but lets face it, to get into this terrortiory (ok my grammar is bad too) we are going to have to get into the whole "who am i really?" debate and that should be saved for high school english class.

    It's Not Fair On Them.

    I expect the lads to understand me. A lot of the time they do, but other times they just haven't a clue. I shouldn't expect them to understand me because I don't even understand myself sometimes!!! But, I'm a woman and they're used to my confusing thoughts and ways.. I...
