I understand every little sigh and 'hmm' and whether they mean he's happy or sad or just drawing a blank. I am listening to our song over and over again and it's suddenly filled with every emotion I feel - all the joy and the longing and the hope. My usually multitasking mind now wants one thing: to be by his side, to be his, to feel his warmth, to feel his love.

Why the hell am I a thousand miles away? I feel so helpless.
...... What's your name? 'cuz my name starts with A, and I just made a phone call with that same effect to someone a couple thousand miles away.

He doesn't have Internet access right now (on vacation with family), so it can't be you. That, and you've stated before that you're 20 - the one that called me is 19.
I hate it when stuff like that happens. Seriously. Especially when it just so happens that I've laid out all my carefully thought out and overly romantic plans for this girl in posts here.

Confession 1: I can't tell if I'm depressed or emo anymore.

Confession 2: People are starting to piss me off, not like "I hate you all" piss me off, more a "stop talking, you're annoying" piss me off.

Really, it's better today. But about a week ago, i was head over heels for this guy. I just let myself convince myself (grammar?) that they might be gay, then it gathers up like a snowball down a hill. Every sentence and action is parsed and analyzed for possible subtle hints at their gayness. But then, eventually i mentally (or physically) hit myself in the face and say "hey! stupid! they're straight! get over it!" and then it starts to get better.


I do this, but in a hetero-way. I think a guy might like me, and I look for every subtle hint that might confirm this. Then I find out otherwise. Both :oops: and :( .

Confession: I was passed on the RIGHT side by an angry driver in an Explorer on my way in to work this morning. Not only did he pass me on the RIGHT (which is perfectly legal), however I was in the right-most lane. The car passed me while we were next to an on-ramp and thus there was (not really) enough room to pass me.

Confession: Since my accident on the way to Austin last week I don't like driving anymore. I'd give it up completely if I could.

Confession: As I was reading the backlog of confessions, I really hoped wing and Kawa were each others significant other. That'd have been freaky/cool.

Confession: Despite my distaste for Internet relationships, I have a feeling it's the only way I'm ever going to get a guy, seeing as how I'm so... well, shy.

Confession: I should have stopped to talk to the cute girl working next door, but I didn't. I even had bits of conversation planned out in my head. Oh well. Maybe next time.

Confession: I don't know why I'm trying to talk up more girls when I've got a girl who's visiting me in a couple of weeks from 1,000 miles away.

Oooh, I have a few of these. *winces*

1. Biological father was an abusive drug addict/junkie. Left when I was about three, and then stalked my mum; mum and I lived in a state of desperate poverty.
2. Born with the umbilical cord wrapped four times around my neck.
3. 10+/- years of being bullied and constantly backstabbed caused me to develop a variety of self-hating headbugs, some of which I have yet to eradicate.
4. After that, was finally hospitalized and put on drugs for depression and "suicidal ideation". Was stalked while there by schizophrenic bipolar suicidal girl.
5. Attended a semester of a mean all-girls high school, where I was friendless, becoming lost in my own head, and was also the *only* support of a bipolar girl with a crush on me and would not stop following me - she literally drained me of my energy and sanity. Was asked to leave or be expelled when I finally did something crazy enough to be noticed.
6. Began homeschooling. Violets and roses! The blossoming of true mental health! Real friends on my level of intellectual ability! The end of my teenage angst! *Peace!* A halving of my medication! ... And then my adoptive father, the person I loved the most in this world, and who had a healthy diet and was the best person I even knew, died. The cardiologist was hysterically upset about it. No one could save him. He died frightened and in a great deal of pain.

And....
7. Have a secret weakness for cute things (kittens! anime! frilly pink dresses with white pinafores! baby animals of any kind! o, how they plague me!) and small children. Causes lots of indignant personal embarrassment.

Hi functionally_stupid,

Wow. One of the things you'll figure out very quickly here is that:
A) this is one of the best group of people you're likely ever to meet, online or IRL.
B) We give hugs here - (cautiously goes to hug F.S.).
C) That's an incredible list of crap - I'm impressed that you are willing and able to talk about it so openly.

Aww, thanks. *hugs back with mighty bear-trap arms of doom* It is a pretty incredible amount of shit, isn't it? I mean, I'm only seventeen. I've complained about the fact that my life would make a really bad Mary-Sue fic - as a writer, I am offended at the dumb storyline. It is totally unlikely that all of this would happen to the same person. If I tried to write a book like this, it would be a crap book. (snickers) Eh, well, if I gave up and succumbed to depression and all that jazz, I'd be letting "them" win! Whoever they are. XD Mostly, I am kept alive through sheer cussedness.

Cussedness! A useful trait.

Returns the hug from the arms of doom!!

I love that word - and I will use it tomorrow (where do I send the royalty cheques? :D)

(Not trying to one up - just saying I can relate...) When I was sixteen/seventeen (all this happened in a span of about 10 months):

My brother had an extremely rare and complicated tumour removed from his hypothalamus (part of the brain that controls slightly important things like breathing and heart rate). He was in Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, and the two best neurosurgeons (who had the same name as my brother) were impressed he pulled through. YAH modern medicine. (My bro's fine now).
My mom's dad passed away. He was awesome.
My mom's best friend, who was also my brother's god mother, passed away.
My mom's sister's husband passed away.
My dad slipped into the throes of major depression.
I had to have surgery.

My god. A thread for HUGS?! Yay! I love hugs! (that is totally another confession, by the way. But usually, around me, hugs tend to just sort of compound and tilt until you've got a cuddlepuddle - like, ten to twelve people draped all over each other and giggling on a couch intended for three people max.) Hugs. It's what I do. :D

I'm sorry, but this made me snicker, because it's probably true. I bet most of us, if we where books, would be heavily criticized and never make the top 100. :p

Edit: Yeah, Alomax - so true, innit? So true. Fiction is never this full of plot holes. ;p I figure that when things get really bad, it's good to be able to laugh about the absurdity of it all. Human life - only so many grains of sand on the beach of the Universe, but what a lot of complaining we do about that beach.

Confession: I'm not really offended.

Confession: I witnessed a REALLY BAD traffic accident today. I was sitting at a red, and a white station wagon blew through in the lane next to me, and hit a pickup truck. The pickup truck spun off and smashed into the cars waiting to turn left on one of the side streets, and the station wagon went airborne and landed across several cars in the dealership lot next to me, about 6 feet from a father and his 16 year old daughter who were shopping for her first car. My first reaction was "Oh me yarm Oh THAT WAS COOL! I NEED TO TAKE PICTURES!!!"

My, err, second reaction was "Oh yeah, I should call 911 and make sure nobody's dead."

Never heard cuddlepuddle before. We usually call it a dogpile, though a dogpile is probably more aggressive. My cousin once broke his arm in one. Anyway, as has been said before, come over to the hugs thread, if you've not done so already. We could always use some more arms.

Gah. I'm pretty bummed out this summer. I mean I'm working, and I'm okay with that, but it's kinda lonely. I have fun hanging out with my friends, but I feel like I'm missing something.

I keep worrying that I won't find someone. (Optimus, I'm 19 years old. WTF, I'm barely capable of living on my own. Finding someone?) I'm not too interested in the whole clicking the boy-girl lego thing(Well, I like the idea, it's just not the objective, and I don't know if I'm ready as a person for that.) , I just want an intelligent, caring relationship with a member of the opposite sex. Someone I can laugh and cry with. Cuddling would be nice, too. Someone I can talk to about things. Someone who I can have un-awkward silences with.

But then I worry that I have some bullshit hollywood/fairy tale ideal of the whole thing, but hell I don't know. I've never even been on a real date. I have some close, wonderful, kind female friends who are wonderful and kind, whom I hang out with, but I think we're just close friends.

I don't know. After spending a year in college, it seems hard to find that back in my small ass-town. Too much shitty high school baggage.

Confession: My whole life just fell apart. Again.

That's what happens when goal #1 involves taking unrequited love by the horns and fixing it. You build your elaborate plans, psych yourself up, and then just as you're ready to make your move, she comes home at 2AM and starts telling you the intimate details of her date, inadvertantly, almpst cruelly if it were intentional, crushing everything you spent the last cycle doing. And then you sleep on it and start over in the morning trying to reuse any surviving infrastructure so that at some indeterminate point in the future you might actually be able to execute.

Confession: This happens almost every other freaking day. When I told her dating a coworker was a bad idea, it was as much for political reasons as it was because I knew this shit was going to happen to me.

Confession: I don't mind it as much as I used to. Periodic despair isn't really that bad.

Confession: I don't giveafuck if anybody cares, because it's 4:35AM, I'm sad, I'm pissed, and I'm tired. I want some god damned meat cake.

I don't know. After spending a year in college, it seems hard to find that back in my small ass-town. Too much shitty high school baggage.


That sounds too much like me. Still, it's ... a very peaceful problem to have. People walk around dating, complaining about girls/boys/breakups/freaky ex-es , and in the middle I'm stuck, wondering if it's worth it to try and join them. I can hardly imagine where I'd start.

Confession: I haven't done anything at work for about two weeks.

Confession: I'm still in love with my ex. It's frustrating.

Confession: I'm also secretly in love with the janitor at work. Though, more jokingly than with the ex.

Confession: I have a shitload of maths I should be eating through these holidays which are already half over, but I just can't get myself to do it. Worse thing is if I don't rawk the house in maths I won't get into uni. Teh sux? Yeah.

I'm not in love with my ex, but I still occasionally hurt from how things happened between us. (first girlfriend, first sexual experience, I was completely head over heels for her, talked about a real future. I spent the night at her place after graduation. that night she broke up with me with the line "Well, you didn't actually think things would work out with us, did you?" (Kicked myself for not getting the f**k out right then). Next morning, she's in the shower, someone's pounding at the door. she gets out, hear her go to the door, it's the guy who I find out she's been cheating on me with. Tells him she'll meet him at the coffee place once she "gets rid of me" (I'm pretending to still be asleep).

All worked out for the best - next girlfriend became my wife. But the pain still surfaces once in a while, and I don't know what to do.
