    Intrusive Thoughts

    I have the most intrusive thoughts before I go to bed... I wish I had someone to talk to before I went to bed each night... I don't want to feel so alone... Last night was so bad that I prayed to God to put me into a coma. At least that way I wouldn't embarrass myself or hurt anybody else.
