    Can't Admit What May Be Going On With Myself...

    My bestie has experience in the field of Psychology, and I was moaning and groaning to her earlier today that I feel so lost and I can't even THINK the actual name of what might be my issue, much less say it out loud (or even in my head). I told her I really don't know what is wrong with me. She...

She don't fancy me or anything, this is because she doubts what I tell her as there is a reason I just joined linkedyn to do with a family issue and they either think Iam psychotic or a liar. This and other things, like her walking in the park to...

    Help starting to work out?

    I wasn’t sure where to post this, but I figured here would be okay. I just really need help becoming healthy again, and I need to start working out.

And i've somehow just followed this random path and i'm stood, looking around - the path I've been following has gradually become narrower, faded and overgrown until i'm struggling to even see where the path is anymore...
