    Diabetes Sucks

    My son was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when he was 5. That was one of the worst days of my life. In the beginning, I had to hold him down to give insulin injections. He would fight me like crazy and it would take at least 20 minutes each time. By the end of the ordeal, we...

    Worrying won't stop the bad things from

    happening. It will just prevent you from enjoying the good stuff. Then why do I worry so much? Most of the stuff I worry about was caused by someone else, but because I care for them I worry about them. How do I stop worrying about others.

    I pretty much worry about lots of things,

    especially when it involves romance. See I got rejected so much in my past and got hurt so much in past that I now have a fear in trusting men. Even if they're really nice and really trustworthy as well. I know a lot of people can relate to this. Lately I've been talking to this...

    Everything makes me worry.

    Most of it revolves around my future.... I hate not knowing. I hate the possibility that I might be a failure.... That I might prove my parents, who believe that all creative careers fail, right.

    My life is at a crossroad now.

    It's as if, for the past week, it has stopped in the middle of the road, and just held its breath, expecting to see what next. Expecting a sign. A reason to keep going. And I, along with it, have dimmed the fire and started waiting for a sign. What sign am I looking for? I don't...

    So I know what you're thinking.

    "If he knows why he worries too much, why doesn't he just not worry." Ok that's probably not what you're thinking, but still I worry too much. I have this sadistic mindset of playing out every bad scenario that could happen when a situation seems like it's going to tip. And...

    I worry about everything!

    It's counteracted in foolish ways at times too.

    Counteracted simply to get away from it. The better way is to get at the roots, getting is knowing why, then to let the knowing influence what is done, for if it all stays the same, there was no knowing really going on.
