    I'm a worry-wart. I think too deep I to things

    and I think there's an explanation to everything. So, is there any reason why I haven't had a dream in the past month? I'm usually a really vivid, lucid dreamer.

    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...

    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...

    You might say it's pretty normal to worry.

    But in my case, I prolly say I worry too much. Too much that I tend to forget that I still have a life. I worry too much of the people around me. I just worry too much. I'm scared most of the times, asking myself what if' sand if only's. Sometimes I ask myself why. I ask because...

    Stop worrying. Stop getting angry at things

    that aren't worth the energy you put into staying angry. Take a shower. Take five showers. Hell, take ten showers if you want to. Stay in bed all day and do nothing. Watch ****** romantic movies and cry your heart out. Stay outside all day. Wake up in the morning with the...

    Night Worrier

    It seems late at night is when I do the most worrying. I find myself waking up or not even going to sleep because so much is going through my mind. I think about all the mistakes I have made in life. Bad decisions that have effected the way my life has turned out (not that it is...

    Anxious Worrier

    I always worry too much, that is one fault of mine.  Worrying and becoming anxious stops me having fun and just living life every day for what it is and has also got in the way of past relationships.  I am changing and I believe EP is helping me do this.

    The struggle is for what I see;

    and for the unseen. It's there when I need it, but it's there when it shouldn't be, when there's no place for it. And even if there's not an assigned sit, it squeezes and grows so rapidly you don't even notice its sit right there in front of you. Like glasses, they turn...

    I'm a worrier. I drive my family crazy

    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'm such a worry wart.

    I over analyze every little detail of what will happen, or could possibly happen until I eventually jut back out of doing it. It's nerves and fear. More fear than anything probably. Nerves are messing up my life.
