    Everything hurts so ******* much.

    It hurts to breath, it hurts to think, it hurts to cry. I don't even know what's wrong, but I feel so alone. I just want someone to hear me, to notice me, to see how much it hurts. Is there anyone listening? Please?

    I don't want to live anymore.

    I feel like I'm a nuisance and a detriment to those around me. I want to be punished. I need to suffer and die. I want to hang myself or OD on some painful medication. I hate myself.
