    the year of my life when I was on psych meds.

    .. I did crazy things that I'd never do. I don't remember caring, I was wreckless... I blacked out a lot. I had sex with numerous people not always protected, I partied and drank, changed my clothes to slutty ones, my personality changed and I was very mean and ruthless at some...

    I hate myself. I reject gods forgiveness.

    I have made a lot of mistakes in life , from 6 yrs old onward. Family is distant. This saddens me and further confirms I should hate me.

    Doesn't do to spend too long dwelling on past

    mistakes. Just say to yourself that there are some situations where you need to ask for help rather than go blindly along.

    I've been talking about the past a lot lately

    with people in person. Sometimes I feel bad for them. I must sound like a broken record sometimes. I just can't seem to stop myself sometimes. I guess I live in the past too much.
