    Still the Same.

    I have been living the past 6 or 7 years with escapist mentality. I ran to get to where I am now, but it seems all these years that just went by slipped slowly day by day, with me still frustratingly stuck. I look around me now and see that I really haven`t moved forward very...

    Never Thought

    I never thought my life would be like this. Extreme sickness, depressed, paranoid, and not able to be around others. Everyday im praying to be healed or killed.....I don't think healed is going to work out. If someone wrote my life beforehand...hes pretty cruel

    When Dreams Crash, Meeting Reality

    A Little Shocking

    At age 6, my life was so bad then. That's when the anxiety and problems at home and school started. But I kept a hope that things would change and that by the time I was 18, I would have the life that I wanted and feel some peace within. I never expected that things were only...

    Feared, Perhaps.

    If you were able to show my seventeen year old self my current life, I suspect that he would collapse to the ground, vomit and promptly have a seizure in horror and despair. Not that I was prone to doing such things in my late teens, but such a reaction is certainly more...

    Changes

    When I look back just a few years ago and remember all the things that I thought I would be doing/have done by now, I can't believe that was me. Then I think, if the me of a couple years ago could look at me now, she wouldn't beleive this is me either.

    I Have Just Run Into Reality And Finally Said "ouch"

    I have just run head-on into reality. I just realized I have been selling myself short for the last 52 years, well, at least 45 years, since I was 7. I say 7 because that's how old I was when my parents divorced and that's the year I stopped smiling in the annual school photo...

    2 Options

    I have never thought for a second that my life would turn out as it has. I'd always assumed one of two things would happen. Option one was being carted off to a crazy farm, the other option was being stabbed/shot/killed. That's because I frequently walk through the wrong parts of...

    Everything Going For Me

    I was tall, shapely in a slender way, and pretty. That takes care of the physical side of things. I was also intelligent, artistic, and talented. That sums up the gifts I was given. I was mildly athletic, more that enough to keep myself thin. I was superstitious about...

    Honestly I didn't think I would

    even live this long. I married young and pushed aside so many of my dreams to make it work it seems now I can do is look back and wonder if it was all worth it. When I see my daughter growing up into a young woman I am certain it was worth something.
