Damn, Instagram.

Never been so confused in my life. I posted a pic of leaves on the ground. My cousin commented something to the effect of ‘love you, cuz’ and such. Problem is, this is the cousin who molested ...

Bye, y’all.

Sorry, but I can’t do this shit anymore. I fucking tried. I fucking fought. HARD. But I lost.

Every time I go inpatient, somebody dies. My manager passed away.

3 days was long enough. Four times in one year is too much. I might apply for disability. The diagnoses and pills keep adding up.

I’m in the hospital.

I snapped.

Finally told my sperm donor what I thought of him. Now, I’m homeless. Worth it, though. I meant it when I said I hope he dies and burns in hell.

That took a lot out of me.

My cousin Rufus. He’s the reason I love big dogs. He taught me so much. Taught me how to train dogs. Introduced me to vegetarianism. At the age of nine, I had my first job as his assistant. He p...

Fuck it.

All I want, is what I fucking deserve. Someone to listen. To believe me. To tell me I didn’t deserve all the abuse I suffered. To tell me I deserve better. To tell me I’m worth it. And YOU wan...
