I Seriously Think There Is Something Wrong With Me

    Doesn't Really Bother Me

    I've never really been normal, I've always been at least a little strange. It doesn't bother me all that much, it bothers me when other people notice. Some people notice more than others; my art teacher from last year sees a lot of the things, while my old english teacher didn't...

    Laughing Is Not Normal

    I think there is something wrong with me because I can't cry at death in fact I do the opposite I laugh. I actually can't control my laughing fit at death. But I must add I can only laugh if the death is on TV or fake or if I"m reading it. But still to laugh at death. I used to...

    It seems that I will have just spontaneous

    bursts in energy and happiness at the most random times, and they can last from minutes to multiple hours to even a day or two. But then I go back to being really depressed and having strong fatigue, and it feels like it can change at any minute. One minute I could be singing a...

    Pretty sure something is wrong with me.

    I'm not sure what it is. When I was in middle school for some reason I wouldn't let myself breath in the hallways, I would hold my breath and even if I was to the point were I felt like I would pass out I wouldn't let myself breathe unless I made it to my locker or class. Now I...

    I'm Not Sure...

    But I know I'm not normal. I feel so out of place, and so...unmistakably awkward. It's a sense of floating, like I'm standing in thin air just waiting to fall. I just don't feel like I fit in with anybody. Everyone seems so...normal. Whereas everything I am, is...

    Apparently There Is Nothing Wrong With Me?

    That's what people tell me. I've tried to get blunt answers from people that know me but the general consensus is that there is nothing wrong with me. I don't know if they are too scared I will get mad or what. Or... I just haven't found the right one, huh? Hmm... Shouldn't...

    The older I get the more it seems like I missed a crucial turning point in my life. Maybe it was more than one crucial turning point. I look around at the guys I know. They seem to have this innate sense of themselves as being about more than one thing. That's the only way I can...

    Everyone says I'm the nicest person they've met.

    I don't yell at people, I never engage in fights, and can almost always be found on my computer or reading. But whenever I get really mad I just want to scream and yell and hurt someone. I'm afraid of myself and I can't talk to anyone about it, because my parents don't take me...

    Emotional Disconnect

    Over the years I've noticed I could t breathe

    well. I lose my breath quickly, and I can never get a full breath in. If I do it takes a few tries. I think it has to do with my parents smoking....but mostly with my dad. Also for the past month everytime I stand and I mean it it's literally every time. I get a huge head rush...

    To be the eternal singleton, still living at home and to have no friends, that suggests to me that there is something wrong with me. It may just be bad luck, not being in the right place at the right time, but I can't help thinking that it's just me. Every morning I wake up and...
