    Goodbye: I'm leaving this forum

    I'm leaving this forum, to who it may or may not concern. Once this thread goes up I'm deleting this account and I will not be back. I've disabled my yahoo account because everyone's blocked me there too. I'll just cope with my problems on my own because nobody understands me nearly as much as I...

    Lonely today

    I emailed a bunch of friends and sent one really long email to an old coworker. I feel so much better not getting smacked around by female therapists who don't know what the hell they are doing. I emailed Anthony and I think it worked well, he understands me the best. If I were phil I would...

    Nobody understands our pain

    Nobody understands the pain we go through daily as sufferers of mental and/or physical illnesses. It's just frustrating that my parents simply cannot accept that I do have a problem with myself.

    Standing up for yourself

    I've started a difficult conversation with my father, about how he can sometimes be very sharp and unsupportive, which is sometimes hurtful to both myself and my mother. It's been quite liberating so far, to articulate feelings I've had for a long time but have been unable to express, usually...
