    Yesterday I had an appointment with my therapist. I mentioned that since lowering the dose of Depakote my migraines have become worse, and using Advil to control them is a two-edged sword. She told me about something she heard of from a client: piercing a certain part of your ear (not the...

    Nymphomania cures

    Listen to the radio on your phone or device, you'll need headphones. Smoke barefoot and wear sandals. Wear a short sleeve shirt.

    I hate and distrust people, including my family.

    For as long as I can remember, people have said and done very cruel and stupid things to me. When I was about four years old, I was nearly raped in the bath room of the church I go to. People saw that I was grabbed up and nobody did anything. And on top of that, someone erased the camera tape...

    I want to be young again

    Hi everyone I'm becoming concerned about my current obsession with my physical appearance. I imagine those of you who read the post title "I want to be young again" have assumed I'm an older woman who doesn't like her wrinkles. That isn't the case. I'm actually 23 and I want to look like a kid...

    Solidly into the "meh"

    Spent some of the week trying to sort out insurance. Drives me fairly crazy that its still kind of in limbo, though I'm sure if at a state of rest, could straighten it out fairly fast. Sleeping a fair amount, but not really getting rest, and its starting to wear me down hard. Just don't have...

    I'll Wear You Out

    I'll wear you all out, because that is what I do to everyone, and then, once I've exhausted everyone--the forum, my friends, my (former) church, my parents, my sisters, my psychiatrist, therapists and counsellors--I'll kill myself, because there will be no one left for me to wreak havoc with.
