    I want to be alone and drink.

    yes I am an alcoholic person, I know drinking to a problem is bad, it never solves anything. but in my case I drink because I want to forget or even ease my problems.. Drinking until you are sober enough to become so numb that you don't even know what you are doing. and when I...

    Woke up to a phone call gotta be at work earlier

    than they anticipated. After I hanged up tears fell from my eyes. Does that ever happen to you? One moment you're fine then the next you burst into tears with explainable pain. Seems to happen more and more these days to me. All I want is to be left alone to just shut everyone...

    I don't like to talk about my feelings,

    I always feel like I bother people with it.. So I just push them away for a while, it work until it comes back 1000 times stronger. I'm really connected with my feelings, it's great when I'm happy but it isn't when I'm sad. I just feel so depressed and don't know what to do with...

    Just Don't Know Where To Go From Here

    People are going to think this sounds selfish, well at least I think it does. I have family, friends, and a loving boyfriend that all care about me so much. But all I can feel is sad; well not necessarily sadness but numb. I just don't seem to care about anything anymore. I am...

    Most the time. I work with a very extroverted,

    loud boss who can't go more than 3 min without talking about something pointless. ive dreamed of duct taping her mouth shut numerous times. It aggravates me to no end. She is always trying to talk to me when I'm actually trying to get things done but gets mad when I am not...

    Get Away.

    When I am pissed or feeling horribly depressed I will shut down. I can shove someone so far from me they don't come back. All cuz of one episode, I could lose an entire friendship. But who the **** cares. It's going to happen to everyone in my life anyways. I always end up with...

    Silence Is Golden

    This is the beginning of Desiderata. A 1927 prose poem by Max Ehrmann. I found it to be very helpful ......... "Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak...

    I'll Explain:

    It is like my parents married and I am fulfilling their marriage responsibilities. I don't really have the time to do what any 21yr old does. I need my time!

    I choose to spend any spare time I have alone,

    in my room. The house phone is permanently full of messages and has been for a couple of years. The mobile is switched off except when I make a call. I can go days without speaking to anyone, well I do talk to the dog. I prefer it this way. I am not scared or phobic about...

    I just want my "friends" to leave me alone

    and stop asking me to go out with them. I wish they would just understand without me having to tell them how I feel; I don't have the courage to tell them about my depression so I guess the only way they'll leave me alone is to **** them off...

    Leave it to me to be the only one to write a

    book in this group. I over complicate things a lot. Call it OCD, I just like having things done thoroughly, I like to thoroughly explain myself and often times that thoroughly gets me nowhere or worse. I day dream of living on an island a lot. Or deep in the woods. Or Alaska...

    Its been 2 years since I have been widowed.

    Still find it so hard to move forward. Being alone has become second nature to me. Who wants to wake up alone daily? ME (weird I know)

    I wish I could be left alone,

    but in a house of seven people, it difficult. When I want to be alone, there are people surrounding me, but when I don't want to be alone, there is no one there.
