Let's see, I grew up in an ultra poor neighborhood with no real family to speak of and not even an alleged family once my mother died. Then I spent years bouncing around foster homes because apparently I wasn't cute enough to get adopted full time. Oh and then I realized I was gay while being at a rundown, self-segregated, highschool which was loads of fun. Oh and I almost forgot the part about the foster home I lived with at the time being decidedly not okay with being gay so I got the beaten figuratively and sometimes literally with the Bible before finally getting moved somewhere else where I was relived to be ignored and neglected as opposed to the attention I got previously. Neglect is kind of a running theme in my early years if you noticed.

Then I just got fed up with all the bullshit and abuses and ran away from "home", dropped out of school, and started bouncing around from place to place at the age of 16. Sometimes staying with friends, sometimes depending on the kindness of strangers. That was probably the low point of my entire life because that's when the loneliness and hopelessness of the situation became overwhelming and I may or may not have seriously contemplated robbing a bank. Fortunately I managed to build a wall of misanthropy, spite, and existentialism which kept me from going completely bonkers and due to bullheaded stubborness I eventually managed to carve out a decent life for myself around the time I turned 19 which has only gotten better since. And that's basically how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air.

I had shin splints for over a year. I had gotten it first during football spring training, but I didn't realize what it was and thought it was just some mere pain as a result of direct contact. I thought it would go away and that I could just toughen it out like any other bruise type of injury.

Well, I was of course, wrong. I got to the point where I could not walk anymore. It hurt so badly because I damaged it so severely. Well, after spring training and a few months, of course, football season came. Legs still hurt. They had not gotten any better after all those months. I played football all season, even to playoffs, with lots of tape every single day in practice and in every game on my legs. The worst part is, I could only function at half my strength. Before all of that, I was a top fullback in our district and everyone, even myself, thought that I would get the Mr. Football award, an award that is given to the best football player in the state of Alabama. It was very tough. I couldn't even play in some games because my legs could just not move.

Then, I hit soccer season. Guess what? It was also a sport that I loved and that I was good at. Well, what happened next? Before our first game, during warm ups or to be specific - 6 MINUTES BEFORE THE GAME EVEN STARTED, I got injured because the front of my ankle made contact with the bottom of someone's cleats. Wow. My shin splints hadn't gone away yet either. Shin splints + severe ankle sprain and dislocated bones. Hmm. Out of the season. It's like the universe was against me my senior year. I really had a tough time going through it all.. I cried my heart out not just as a person, but as an athlete. I'm over it now, but.. that was quite the hardship for me.

Typing an essay is dreadful. Typing three essays in one night is complete torture. Do I regret? Shouldn't have procrastinated. And why am I on here? Mind is wiring in a pothole.

Well, I have anxiety, which have giving me lots of trouble.
I also have hard ADHD, which also cause problems.
Not really anything else, I guess.


Same here!
I have panic attacks frequently, but I've had to take therapy and meditation classes to learn to calm myself down.
Sometimes it doesn't work, so when I get them during school, it's pretty embarrassing. I end up going to the bathroom, hoping no one is in there to clam myself down.
I don't take meds as much for my ADHD, because it changes me. No matter what it is. I don't like to feel uptight. All though I can't concentrate all the time, it sure is better then being irritated!


Aw. I go on a special school, where they think a lot about the different students problems. All the teachers are really nice, so it helps me a lot. But I know the problems about finding the right medicine and generally get rid of the shitty anxiety. \:
I am now on Lyrica, but it makes me dizzy and takes my concentration - well, sure helps on my ADHD.
But it helps on my generalized anxiety most of the time. Though not on my social.

I hope you find something that helps you, because it is damn horrible. ^^

Usually its my own inner conflicts and fears. Worrying about general security for the future. But then I just take a deep breath and meditate and realize that I've just talked myself into worrying about these stupid little things and then I talk myself out of worrying about them. Life is good.


Totally with this dude! I feel ya, man!

All pain is all in the mind. Simply choose happiness, and you will be happy. All of reality is just a mental and emotional construct that is not really there, so why constantly choose to feel FEAR? Everything is a choice, so choose LOVE/HAPPINESS.

Life is just like running over obsticales (hurdles), you face them and overcome them, sometime you fall and it hurts but you get up and continue and face onther one. Don't let hardships beat you.

My mind is my prison.
This world is what I hate.
There is no way out.
but hell I am going to find.
a way either way.
Madness is consuming and
I am not going to be one of them.
Them is no one I know
or wanna know.
Torture my body feels better than
fighting for happiness.
I guess that's because I am more used to that.
So freedom my ass.

Hardships? Few at the moment and they're small first world problems. Nothing worth mentioning.

25 years ago, I had many that were far serious. Took a lot of hard work, soul searching, baring of teeth, and coming clean, but I took care of nearly everything.
