    Just So You Know....

    .......I know you say that you’re in love with me, but before you say more, let me say I think you need to reconsider. You see, love for me doesn’t really live here any more. I know u heard that before but for me, I almost don’t know if I believe in that thing called love...

    Since I was little I've been instinctively panicked by confinement. I used to be claustrophobic. I still might be, just in control; The only time I felt it in years I easily calmed myself. I want to find out if I'm still scared of those childhood terrors; I want someone I trust...

    Dyphedramine OD

    I have always been afraid of going insane. My uncle is a paranoid schizophrenic and growing up my mother kept relating to him if I ever showed anger or did anything abnormal. I had an accidental dyphedramine OD and it forced me to live in the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic...

    Is Afraid The Right Word?

    When I've been hospitalized after tthe surgeries, they always have me on painkillers. It is difficult to maintain control when I'm drugged. I feel my cravings and as the discipline of my mind floats, I find myself acting on my impulses with no thought or plan. Someyimes I lose...

    I Am Not What I Want To Be

    It sometimes scares me that I don't feel like I know the man in the mirror. It is not as if we are strangers, but sometimes the man in the mirror looks like he is on the lost highway. I get afraid that I can't always bring him home. I get scared when I lose the meaning of Emily...

    My Personal Private Fear And Nightmare

    That one day, I roll by my ex-wife's house to pick up my kids for my half of the week, and the house is empty and dark-- that she pulls a parental kidnapping and disappears to some far off state, and I never find my kids. That scares the **** out of me.

    I'm afraid of growing old and regretting my decisions. I don't regret the things I do, because they all make me grow and learn, but I'm afraid of regretting the things I DIDN'T do. I'm not afraid of dying, but I'm afraid of dying alone. And I'm not tagging anyone :)

    My Father

    My Father died whilst I was still in my early teens. I was one who never liked him. The day he died was my emancipation as it were. There were the dreadful weeks and months that passed where I would dream of him rasing from the dead and coming for me. The tormentor.

    My Fears.

    I am truly afraid of being completely alone. I am afraid to be the last one to die and having no one to talk to anymore. I am afraid to die. I am afraid to let go....I am afraid of losing myself to something out of my control. Most of all, I am afraid of being abandoned.
