    I Don't Really Want To Be Here...

    The world has gone absolutely mad. There is so much stupidity and idiotic goings-on these days. Combine that with my personal situation of being a gay man without any success in finding someone to love, someone who actually wants my love and wants just as much to love me, and you...

    Somedays All I Want to Be Is a Missing Person

    I feel trapped so much of the time by other people's expectations and demands. Some days I don't want to interact with anyone at all, but there are people who need me to go to work, come to class, meet up with them because it's their last weekend in town. I do a good job of...

    I Dream of a Fast Escape

    I don't know if this group is about disappearing from the planet or disappering from the life I live now. I often want both. However at the moment I just want to discreetly leave one morning, suitcase packed, train tickets in pocket. Only saying goodbye to my cat. Make it to...

    Sometimes Feel Guilty For Being Here....

    I have started to feel that way lately, like I am feeling guilty for being alive. I feel like an absolute loser in every sense of the word. Still living at home as I can't afford to move out, having no friends to go out and see socially, not earning much in my job with children...

    I often think people would be better off

    without me. I think about selling my belongings and leaving all the money I have to my husband for our mortgage and bills. I want him to be happy and I think I am a burden in his life.

    I Just Don't Know How

    I have been guilty of hiding from people in grocery stores.  I slink up and down aisles, caressing cans and catching up with the new advances in bulk fibers and diapers, neither of which I have much interest (and hope I won't any time soon.)  I'm super...

    Only Sometimes?

    I dont think its just sometimes. Most of the time, I really wish i just didn't exist anymore. I know it is stupid, but I generally assume most people wouldn't notice, or would cease to notice very quickly. At work I stand out, because I argue with my boss - but I have to because...

    I've lost everyone I've ever loved. Everytime I meet someone, then end up leaving me. I'm not cliggy or over affectionate, but each time they tell me after a year or so that they don't really love me. It's happened 3 times its left me heart broken. I don't think I could...

    I wonder how many peoplewould come looking

    for me, I wonder if on the report to anybody. My life is like it's going nowhere like I'm at a standstill or I'm just moving so slow that I can't even see it. Sometimes I wish I could just get on a plane ticket and not know where I'm going until I get there.

    New Life, New Start

    Sometimes I wish I could just stop caring about those that I love, be selfish and just disappear, at least for a little while. I would start a temporary new life. I'd dye my hair, switch up my wardrobe to something no one would expect, and just live another life for a while...

    I Just Don't Belong

    I guess it's a part of growing up, but I often feel overwhelmed and like I don't belong here. This, I think is because of three things, loneliness, my family and reminders of how awful the world is. I am lonely on account of the fact that I am an only child. I do have...

    Not Die.

    I don't want to die, because I know that life can be a great place a lot of the time.  But I just sometimes wish I could disappear.  For even just a day.  From all the people I know, because everyone needs that sometimes.

    I think it would be so amazing to physically disappear. It's not that hard to disappear in a theoretical sense. I just have to be silent and go off into my own little world. Imagine if I could physically disappear! I'd probably use it to listen in on people's conversations. :)
