  1. Insane Anger with myself

    To day I'm going to explode.
    Its not dad

    Its a trigger thats set off all the deep resentment , hatred, fear, disappointment, hideous self-pity and anger about my life. I just want to scream and scream and scream.
    Instead I'm just crying and crying as i write this, just to see if writing about it will help.
