    Get Bitchy When I Don't Get It.

    I stay at home, so when my family goes to work and school, that is sacred time for me.  I absolutely hate weekends, I love my family but when we're all here at the same time, ugh!  To me, the worst feeling ever is when its a weekday morning and I'm sleeping soundly, all...

    Need Time To Think & Breathe

    My mother drives me insane. My whole family is like one big drama that won't end. Sometimes I just want to crawl into a box and stay there because I have no room. By room, I mean space. I need to be able to go someplace without interruptions. So that I can think and get my head...

    Alone Is Worth It Sometimes

    Time being alone with oneself is much needed by being overwhelmed with the constant negativity and repetitious of mindless games by untruthful dilemmas. Being misunderstood and taking advantage are certified reasons to withdraw in a silent mode with no expressions whatsoever. The...

    Back Off

    Don't get mad at me because I enjoy having time to myself sometimes, especially if I am pretty much with you every minute I'm not working. Don't get offended when I don't want to be around people, and just want to be by myself. Wipe that puppy dog look off your face and mind...

    Sometimes I Feel Like Exploding

    I feel it building. The frustrated anger. With myself mostly. For not being able to do what I need to do with people around me. Drives me crazy. Love my friends but I have issues. My brain does not relax with people around. I NEED to have alone time if I'm to not freak out and...

    Just Me

    I solve problems for a living.  I listen to people complain all day, and I try to fix the things they are worried about.  When I get out of work, my mother, my friends, my sister call, and they rarely ask how I am, or what's happening in my world.  They tell me of...

    At Least Once A Week

    I need time to sit in my room and play video games. I'm 24 so shouldn't I be beyond hiding in my room and playing video games?  I got my first gaming consol when I was 5, a SNES, then a Gameboy a year later. By 12 I'd talked my grandma into buying me an N64 and by 15 I had...

    Alone Time!

    Everyday I require a certain amount of time on my own.  And with some silence added in for good measure.  I have gotten worse in this as I've gotten older, just need that time to recharge from all the bustle and noise of life.  Thankfully my boyfriend is not a...

    I Do....

    I need time alone. I often ask for time alone, time to think, time to write. Sometimes It is just what I need to get myself back to feeling okay again. Sometimes Just getting back to myself. I Love having time to myself, and sometimes its all that you need. BroknWings

    Trying To Breathe

    I am not sure if it is because I'm an introvert or if it has anything to do with my schizophrenia, but I desperately need alone time, quite a bit. When I am around people for extended periods of time, I feel like I am going to explode. I am able to tolerate certain people...

    "What would you do if I died?

    " Is one of the questions I keep asking my significant other. What if I left, not because I don't love you, not because you don't make me happy, but because I need to. I am pushing my self away from everyone, my family included. But why? I just want to be alone with my thoughts...
