    I Don't Like This

    I've only recently found this out about myself. I really don't like overly touchy feely people. It's ok in small amounts but when someone is constantly invading my space by either sitting too close, or touching my hands, or my hair or patting me all the time I get antsy, and if...

    One day, life just bullied me. Elements were out of my control. I was depressed, I kept getting bad news. I wanted out. I wanted to die and suicide was on my mind a lot. I felt like I had no significant reason or purpose to be here where your days seem more sad and difficult...
