      I don't know what is wrong with me. lol. I'm going to bring this up to my therapist on Friday. (I'm being treated for depression.) It feels like I have just shut down and basically don't have much to say and I don't know why. I worry about the lack of...

    Last night I made up my mind

    and did something that was really difficult for me to do. I told my boyfriend about my learning disability. I knew that it was inevitable that I would tell him one of these days but I was hoping it would be later rather than sooner. Anyway, I have non verbal learning disability...

    Don't Call 'friend' When Action Is Not!

    Dear Mr. & Mrs. Coward,It's been so disappointing again for such an arrogant couple like you two who act as if you are truly in love and would like to extend your true love to those people by saying something of making friend. But, both of you are well aware that your actions...

    Holding It In Til It Explodes...

    I always hold things inside until I can't bear it anymore and something terrible happens. It's just the way I grew to understand the world. I was abused growing up, and telling things never helped only hurt, so I grew to keep so many things secret and locked up. In my college...

    To Tired For A Proper Title...

    I always put my foot in my mouth when I speak. Every time. But I can write. I love to write. I've brought people to tears with my stories. I don't need to open my mouth. I just need a pen(cil). I just can't form coherent sentences when speaking. The words don't come to me the...

    Locked Up

    I feel like I've lost the ability to communicate effectively in some ways.  I really want to learn to talk more frankly about my own life.  I'm not too bad with talking about other people's lives but I tend to lock up when people ask about mine.  And I feel like...

    Articulation

    It's hard for me to properly articulate what is on my mind, and it frustrates me to no end. I'd like to think that it's because I haven't found the proper words to say what is on my mind, but sometimes, I think these words don't even exist.
