Favorite Quote:
“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.”

A sudden claustrphobia.
Creeps up on me.
A chocked voice, and a broken sob;
Emit form my mouth,
As I run out of the room
With screams trapped in my throat
Clawing at my neck, heart pounding
Blood rushes to my face.
As I slide
Down the side of the bathroom wall
And hug my knees to my chest
Shaking, choking, sobbing
Panic is my adraniline.
Panic is in my blood.
Light headed.
Heavy legged.
Trapped in a body,
That I can’t get away from.
Trapped in my mind,
A place that even I don’t know.
Minutes later
I walk out.
Seemingly fine, the only
sign is the red
blood in my eyes, and the trembling
of my hands.
