    It's 4:00 am now. I'm tired. I've been up since 1:00 because the voices won't shut up and let me sleep. I tried doing something to try to distract myself. I made some scotcheroo treats. Why won't they leave me alone? I'm so tired of this. I'm tired of fighting this. Why do I bother?

    i don't know

    They said that talk is good. They said that they will listen and that they will understand your situation. They said that it's okay to vent out. That you should talk to someone you love and loves you back because they will understand you, because they will listen and provide you a shoulder to...
