     As an individual of the USA, I am a weirdo. Plain and simple. I confuse myself with emotions and then wash everything away with logic. Am I making sense? Wait- I don't even understand what I'm saying...

    My Partner.....

    quite often says "I worry about you." My mind works really oddly and as the group title states "I just don't get myself sometimes".

    Nope I Don't

    Maybe now I actually am starting to feel a little sorry for my husband. I get mad at him for not understanding me but i don't even understand myself so he doesn't really stand a chance?! There was a time when I thought I knew me, now I think I lost myself somewhere and I don't...
