    I just want to drop everything & leave.

    Unfortunately I don't know where I would go. I also don't know how I would afford it. I'm just sick of lying to everyone about my feelings.

    Packing some of my stuff

    and driving off and never returning sounds great. But I don't know where to start. I need a place, a job, furniture. I just don't know how to get started. Anyone do this before?

    Somedays that is the thing weighing on my mind.

    Too many responsibilities that I shouldn't have. I would love to take my kids and just leave this place, never looking back... And then reality kicks in... I'm stuck here.

    There's kind of a longer story to why this is my username but basically I want to leave this town and forget about the horrible sh*t that's happened to me here. At the same time though I don't want to forget because that would mean that I haven't learned all the lessons I've had...

    Somewhere Only I Know

    There's something enticing about lacing up your shoes, slinging a bag over your shoulder, and walking out the front door.  There's also something exciting about the idea of just disappearing, going wherever you wanted to go when you wanted to go there. I want to leave this place...
