The real one

I'm effed up and effed over and nobody believes me. I cannot find a way to help myself, find a way for the suffering to stop or find a supportive place anywheres in the world because my problem is so unique. Furthermore, anyone who's tried to help me basically adds to the guilt, lucky to have them, cause I'm sucking them into my effed zone. I'm hoping it passes cuz I'm too mentally disturbed to do anything else

Zero Motivation

I used to be creative. I’ve lost my desire to even try. It’s almost like I’m just lazy now. Getting a pen to paper is too much effort. I wander back and forth from the bathroom and stare at the computer all day while accomplishing absolutely nothing. I’m even losing my will to go grocery shopping. I just can’t be bothered. I went outside to try and go for a walk and it just started pissing rain. It was beautiful yesterday but it never lasts for more than a day. If I never saw another day of rain in my life I wouldn’t miss it.

Hey. Wondering

Is anyone else out there having trouble with responding to ads on Craigslist Are you finding alot are scams. Everything Cars for sale Apts for rent Looking for musicians Rides shares Jobs even They seem good at first your chatting about meeting them but then they disappear , or they give you some crazy reason why you can see what for sale or its located on some remote island somewhere. Or they seem to forget about the original ad and just try to chat you up. You call someone about an apt ,you go to the apt and the owner says its rented, i had just spoken with him 15 mins earlier on the phone. An ad is posted for a van I responded right after posting. Right after Its already sold Timing ? Scammy ? Frustrating :(


My co-worker is a nosy person and always looks at my screen to see what I'm doing and then comments about it. However, he doesn't allow anyone to know what is going on in his life...

I miss

the anonymous autonomy i had before getting a smart phone. I'm sad about the loosening of lockdown too. I loved the barely busy roads and mostly empty places. (yes i like people, just not lots of them all day long)

We were young

I married a happy wonderful laid man 33 years ago. He’s now a cranky old man in his sixties. I don’t know what to do. I love him very much.


Sometimes you don’t realize just how much hurt you’ve been suppressing until something happens that just tips you ever so slightly over that invisible line, and before you know it you’re a gibbering mess. So many lousy things have happened over the past several years, and I’ve just been barely managing to hang on. I hardly ever cry anymore; mostly I’m just kind of numb. But in the past few days I learned about something that just really cut deep, and I started crying tonight and couldn’t stop. All night long. I guess I needed to let it out but man do I hate it when I lose it like this! At least there’s no one to witness it but me.

Lucky me

I have a stinky roommate. I wish he believed in deodorant. And showers. And soap. And doing laundry more than once a month. It's so gross.

Easier to drink than chew

That is why I enjoy blending my food where possible. I drink a lot of smoothies. When I lived in California, I used to order meat-shakes as well. Yes, they are a real thing. I don't know... I just get a lot of flavour from these drinks... they can be served hot, cold, luke-warm, whatever.

woke up one day

just decided to go with a guy and woke up one day and realized i wasted my entire youth
