    my anxiety and depression have been building up.

    as a result, I get very indecisive. my mind races, and I can't make any decisions. I just keep questioning myself. I contemplate starting over to make the stress go away. "If I just leave EP and come back later, the stress will go away." Even though I might do good here, have...

    I am panicking. I am livid,

    Pseudocide. It is a word

    that is both beautiful and frightening. Pseudocide: the death of identity, the cessation of the self. For years-- at least half my life-- it has been an ever-present secret desire, patiently growing in my heart. I long to vanish, to recreate myself, to feel the exhilarating...

    No Real Friends

    I've got no close friends at all. Most of my friends are using me. They lie. They all do. I know, but I never say it out. I wish I could get any, for at least a single day.
