    I know the pain of natural childbirth,

    and emotional pain. Pain of broken friendships and torn relationships. The pain of wanting to know why something has happened to you but not having an answer. It hurts sooo bad.

    before I walk any further I've decided to unleash my pain. For those whom have questioned whether I know pain- yes I do. Much of my pain stems from abandonment. I come from a long line of abuse and neglect. I don't wish to dwell on the state in which I was years ago. I know...

    How I Am

    Why is it that I can take quite a bit of physical pain before it becomes too much, yet the emotional pain is excruciatingly hard....even the the tiniest bit cuts right through me.

    My mom died 6 months ago

    and I'm still struggling with it. My dad died 5 years ago, my son died 7 years ago, my sister died 9 years ago. While I know it gets easier with time, my mom's recent death has brought it all back for me, I feel like I'm grieving for all of them all over again. This sucks.

    I'm misserable with the life I have now and when I found this website I thought people would actually understand me. Most of the people here don't and make the worst answers. I just don't want to live in a place were I'm not wanted and people don't take me seriously.

    Pain has but one Acquaintance And that is Death -- Each one unto the other Society enough. Pain is the Junior Party By just a Second's right -- Death tenderly assists Him And then absconds from Sight.

    I can't live anymore, it's too painful. After 9 years, all I want to do is lie down and never wake up. I have no one to help me and no one who cares. I can't do this on my own anymore. I feel like I'm in quick sand, sinking deeper and deeper, suffocating. My head feels like it...

    Slowly Turns To Dust

    She clings to me while I sleep, this pain, holding tight with a clamped jaw, gnawing on bones. She is a familiar companion but not one I greet with a smile.   Love seems to keep her slightly at bay; the prospect of happiness does the same.  In the end, though, no matter how I...
