    Hell Yeah!

    ..aaand I'm not proud of it. Proves that I'm a little coward who lacks the strength to deal with her own problems. Really, how am I going to be successful if I keep distancing myself from solutions? Has anybody found a cure to this? It sucks and it makes you depend on others...

    Running From Everybody

    I am so lonely, but I can't and don't know how to let anyone close to me.  I change jobs often because I don't develop relationships with people I work with.  I am married to a man that doesn't care that I don't communicate.  I stay busy all the time to avoid...

    Obsession With The Idea Of Escape
