    It Hurts

    I'm a shopoholic with no $$$....buying things makes me happy...I guess it replaces people? I understand hoarders to a point. Not being able to walk through your house easily and it getting to the point where you have mold and dust lurking is the limit. If I had money Id probably...

    Is This My Life?

    I just look at my life and wonder sometimes how I got here and especially why almost nothing is the way I wanted it to be. I want to move back home. I want to be with someone I love and who loves me. I want to be near my friends and family. And above all else, I want...
