    I have been thinking.

    The world is not a movie or a play. We are not the protagonists of that story. There are no heroes and villains or background characters here. The millions we pass by don't disappear the moment they passed by never to be seen again. They have their own lives, their own dreams...

    I've been reading through quite a few of the

    mentally ill topics and I can't help but assume the worst when I see the posts from people who offered invaluable advice from their personal experience but haven't logged in for like 3 months to a year or 2. I hope they're doing well and I'm just being negative.

    I actually have not slept yet.

    I have a lot on my plate right now and my mind will not let me rest. I know things will turn around it is the waiting that keeps me most anxious.

    When I was 20, I did a criminal act

    and it kept me from sleep all night. I was working with an other student at McDonald's. We found someone's purse. It contained cash and credit card. I suggested him we split the money. He said yes but said further he would try using the credit card. This was like my first...

    Am I lying to myself by staying positive

    even in the face of my prese t situation? Being depressed has enhanced my creative thinking. Because it sure takes a skilled mental magician to spew the lies I try to sell myself. Lie 1: It will get better. Truth: I've said this damn thing so many times and yet .... I'm still...

    But every once in a while I would like someone to hold my hand and tell me things are going to be OK.

    I never thought it would get to this.

    The feeling of hurt and disappointment. I suppose I deserve it after the way I have been these last few days.

    I think about my man late at night

    because I miss him and I want to be in bed next to him; to cuddle with him, to sleep next to him. I will think about the memories and how happy I am with him. The negative part of thinking late at night is losing him and the effects that it would have on me. That's the last...

    Every night I close my eyes

    and recall what I did during the day and I am mostly not proud of what I did. I looked so stupid,immature .reckless. It's feel like that's not the real me. I just can't sleep and keep thinking what should I've done instead.

    There are times I have felt myself quite lost.

    I'm not doing what I want to be doing. Thoughts strangle my sleep and I lie awake thinking. There are so many things to ponder, so many things to process and survive.

    I'm up thinking about things every single night.

    .. For hours... My mind just goes on and on... From things I'm worried about, to the things I'm happy about, to the things o fear, to the things I wonder about, to the things that are totally random and weird... Fantasies... Yeah..
