    Dreams

    I've had recurring dreams throughout my life but I think the one that's repeated most often is the "escape" dream.  It happens in all kinds of settings with all kinds of different people but it's always the same....me trying to get away from people, family members...

    Inhale, Exhale.

    Well I am addicted to getting high. I am addicted because I am afraid to live in the real world. Somehow it always seems to **** me in the face everytime I go out there. I lost my job, got my first ticket I can't even pay and I can't **** a clean drug test to save my life. I...

    This Describes Me Perfectly.

    Ever since I can remember, I've been addicted to escaping. Whether it was escaping from my living situation, running away from friends, or simply escaping from reality, it's always been a problem with me.There are so many friends that I've abandoned over the years, and usually...

    It Might Be A Serious Problem...

    It seems like it's all I can think of now-a-days. I'll be sitting in class and I'm like, "hmmm...I bet if I just get up and walk out no one will stop me. I won't even answer if they ask where I'm going. I could get on the bus too, it's totally gonna be outside in like 10 minutes...

    It Only Hurts More, The Longing.

    It is truly an addiction. Escaping occupies so much of my thoughts, along with the loathing. I think of going far away from people and civilization to just be......without complicating anything else or dragging anyone else down. I feel like a failure-anchor, I am not just a...

    Obsession With The Idea Of Escape

    I'm sick. I'm sick of the world around me. Every day I see something in the media (in some form) that causes me pain. Every second of alone time I get with my mind is spent thinking of ways in which things could be different to how they are. I'm not happy with anything as it is...
