    I dread nights. It's during the inevitable time before I fall asleep that I'm in the most pain. It's the most all-consuming, permanent kind of pain, and it reminds me daily that I'm not better, even after a day of pretending that I am. It's at night when there is nothing to distract me. My mind t...

    When I grew up, you always took care of me and if you ever resented that, I didn't see If I'd fall, you'd hold my hand while I cried and if I had a secret, to you I'd confide And then I grew older and I didn't need you anymore But you stayed by my side just to make su...

    Life is a game of cards. We can’t choose what hand we get, and we aren’t always dealt the best hand, either. Some of us that are dealt these bad hands say that we are “unlucky.” We give up because we do not have the hand we want. We give up because things did not go our way. Life is luck to ...

No late night sleepovers, movies, gossiping, and no best friend to tell everything to. After lots of tears, begging, a...
