    Sometimes it feels like I am not

    who I really am,as if I'm some sort of greater energy trapped inside this bodh as if I were to serve a greater purpose. Does this thought come into any of your minds? Why do I get these feelings ? Are they natural?

    It's Gibbs! My first thought!

    I do though. It seems like I'm doomed to a life of misery. I HAVE to change that before I go crazy. I need help though....

    I feel trapped by life,

    because I have a number of obstacles like my social anxiety which often prevents me from socializing with other people. I don't often get out much only to necessary appointments. And find it hard to meet new people and make new friends. I am a married woman so my life revolves...

    Trapped in grief and

    although I live and breath, walk and talk; I am not as alive as I was before my son overdosed at 22. I waver between wanting my old life back and wanting to start a brand new one. I just don't want to be this person who can't escape the pain.
