The book you can sympathize with :)

I found this book and read through it, it's called healing me by anne kad. It's about a girls journey through life, drugs, and sex abuse. It's an amazing read and made me feel like I wasn't alone. You can find it on most ebook stores. It's also on smashwords.

I greatly advice you to read the book, as it is certainly one of my favorites ...

No motivation in life? Laying on the floor all day?

The most I do in a day is get up to eat or use the restroom. Doing anything is a big deal for me... even watching TV is an accomplishment, because usually I just lay on the floor stuck in my thoughts and i just roll around on the floor for the rest of the day. I'm 17, and I don't go to school (never have). I don't have any social contact either (haven't talked ...

Can't turn off obsessive thoughts

I seem to have a problem turning off obsessive thoughts. It drives me crazy, I can't turn off my head and get on with life thinking and actually think and focus on important things.

The most recent example of this is after ending a short stint seeing a girl, I can't stop analysing and thinking about the situation. I constantly am thinking about it..every minute.. I think about everything in relation to that person. I ...

I just hate work

I just hate the fact that we have to work so bloody hard in this society to make ends meet.

I hate it so much that for now, I'd rather be unemployed and live with my father than financially independent.

Of course eventually I need to find a source of income, whether it's disability or welfare income, or job income, it's just very difficult for me, I've got a lot barriers.

I've had various menial ...

Feeling Insane

Gonna call trigger warning just in case. She, or they, or someone, uh... well, there's general unhappiness here and quite naughty language.

Oh god I don't know what to do with myself right now. There's so much going on inside me, and outside me, and just general confusion everywhere. I might be DID but I don't know, and my emotions are all over the place, or else everyone else's emotions are all over ...

The unThinking of a Contrary ; a Native American Mystery.

The unThinking of a Contrary ; a Native American Mystery.

Before my people were culled and christianised, there was a place in the tribe for a contrary.
They were scary, made people uncomfortable,
but the Old Ways human-beings took notice of the contrary's abstract messages,
and treated their work as a legitimate contribution to the well-being of the tribe

Popular silly story is of them doing things backwards as their definitive technique,
but that is ...

So What?

I'm 30 years old, I live in my dads apartment and i'm unemployed.

My dad doesn't charge me rent and my mom hands me 400 dollars a month for food.

I spend 90% of my time watching you tube and the rest of my time playing video games.

I've never had a girlfriend and I'm practically a virgin.

I have no major psychological or physical disabilities that I'm aware of, and my iQ is within ...
