Thoughts of a dreamer...

Do you ever believe yourself to be more happier in the dream world than you are in reality? The people you meet there don’t seem to abide by any conventional standards of what is considered “normal” or “correct”. They are a reflection of everything you’d truly like to find in a person.

Sick of my life

Yes this is not a made up thing.. I haven't hung out with any friends in almost 6 months and everytime I'm asked to, I make up an excuse because I don't want to tell them what's actually going ...

The sound of 2017 scares me. It's so futuristic.

Hey guys. This is super random and just occurred to me while I was in the shower, and I'm feeling a bit better but I wanted to just put this out there and see if anyone else gets scared about this too. Isn't it so weird how we're living in the 2010s? I was born in 1997 and I've pretty much only known the 2000s and have written it down my whole life but it ...

The lack of responses

The few responses with many posts and some without any makes me miserable. I guess there is little to no help for agoraphobia/isolation. In the real world I don't see any solution to being alone, unless you have people there for you already, and then if you do they may not care. I guess the only people that can help agoraphobics and with similar issues are those who also have it. I tried to go ...
