    Before Ocd...

    I have dealt with ocd for a while now I can't even remember how it started or when it started. It's as if a switch was just turned on in my head. I remember a time when I was a real tom boy. I used to be so out going and sporty always out rollerblading, bikeriding or just hanging...

    I Miss You

    Dear Self, I am not certain where you have gone but I want you to know that you can come home to open arms.  I miss your carefree, loving, happy attitude and your great big smiles and hugs for everyone. I love you and I miss you. Please come home. Love, Me

    I really miss who I was.

    I was never this sad or down. I used to have lots of friends who cared about me, now it's just me, myself & I. I hate this.

    What Happened...

    Today I looked in the mirror and looked at myself. At what I have become.I was pale,skinny,tall,with black hair that was short but covered my face, no smile, and my eyes were cold and focused. I was dressed in all black, and I had my grey converses on which I doodled all over...

    I went through a mentally

    and emotionally abusive and controlling relationship for a year and a half and finally got out of it and it opened my eyes to the world, how it works, and my place in it. I guess I miss the carefree, Innocent, trusting person I was before it.

    Ever since third grade,

    my personality went from outgoing to zero. I don't know whether it's because of the fear I was harboring at my math teacher that time, like the way she constantly humiliated and stabbed me with her self-confidence wrenching words. Or because of my mother's constant insults she...
