    When I Feel

    When I feel that no one can truly understand me or when I have tried reaching out and found nothing to grab onto, I will retreat into myself. Even if someone is there to help, sometimes I will pull away, because I can't or don't want to deal with my circumstances at the time. I...

    My Brain Is Tired.

    The last few days, I have felt lost in myself. I'm in a hole that I can't seem to get out of. I sit here at this computer most of the time and just read the stories, not commenting or just flipping around groups aimlessly. I love the friends I have here so much and appreciate...

    Alone Isn't Bad Or Is It?

    I want to be alone, a lot. I live alone, and often I can't wait until I get off work so I can come home and be away from everyone. I don't consider myself anti-social. I just like to get away from people. I think some people would think that this behavior is abnormal. I don...

    Grand Solitude

    As much as I love my family,

    there are times when what I crave most is just to be alone. As a mother of three it is difficult to find time for just myself. It's difficult enough to find time for just me and my husband, and nearly impossible for me to find real alone time. It's not that I want to be alone...
