    2. Everyone here wants me to be so I will be.
      I didn't expect to have a strong character on here. Thought I would just give my opinion on the topic once in a while, but this is how it turned out and so be it. Kind of tired of the pseudonym "Chet" though.

    3. I had one of the single worst histories in terms of SW members. You will grow, if you stick it out. Some people talk trash but some have super wisdom. The trash ones you learn to ignore, the wisdom ones you accept like gold because they are. In time, you can figure out the difference! xx

      Delete
    4. The trash talking doesn't bother me. I just sort of miss when I was more anonymous, or at least sparse with my posts (I have been anonymous before). I feel like I have given too much of myself away too quickly. Even if most of it was hyperbole or jest.

      Delete
    5. Nah, just wait a few days and everyone will forget and go on to new things :)

      Delete
    6. Everyone will forget my fake name is Chet? lol

      Delete
    7. I like you, Chet.

    8. I like me too. But Chet really does sound gay lol

    9. Don't take yourself so seriously, Chet! People here try to get under your skin just to ruffle your feathers. Try to figure out why your feathers are being ruffled. Think about it, learn from it, and laugh it off :) If it makes you feel better, I do like you, and I think you show intelligence and the potential for strength. And I'm not even flirting with you, because I said I wouldn't!

    10. Oh my god. For the last time I am not offended by anyone. I'm sick of my pen name. It's not even the same one I use on other sites. I never thought I'd be addressed as it and it's beginning to disgust me with it's monosyllabic flamboyant glory.

      I think it is nice how sweet you are to people.
      What is the hardest thing you have to deal with, in your life?
      For me, it is fear.

    12. There's a treat for you in yesterday's comments section :)

    13. Was there a post, in particular Anon Ymous?

  12. i dated a sociopath and had a terribly frightening nightmare during this time about a door i was scared to open but had to do so and there he struck me like lightening only by standing there and awaiting me - the mummy-man, making my heart stop two beats before i awoke. this guy was hollow like hell.

    1. That's the moment I left him. When his hollowness was giving me chills.

    How does it feel to live out of the lens of a Personality Disorder? You feel like the prison is inside you, partially and outside of you, partially. You are the victim of it. The word victim expresses the helplessness.

    You wish you could tear the suit of iron off you like you would the hands of an assailant whose arms were strangling you but there is no one there. You are alone with the many terrorizing voices but you can't answer them in a way that makes them go away. You may act loud and proud but it is an act and you know it.

    Forgive the poor writing but this is how I feel.

      I go back to the time when I was strong. It was me, not this weakling, shaking and sweating over the slightest thing. To be strong is my inner voice calling but I waver like someone afraid to go through the yellow light. I am law and order- like. I wait for green and red. That way, there is no room for trouble.

      I used to love to be weird. Just when someone thought they knew me, I would pull out a quirk. I am still crazy like that but afraid to show it. I wanted to blend in so fucking bad. I even wore blending in clothes like sweater sets. These are the ultimate in blending in clothes especially if you combine them with flats. You can go anywhere and be fine, especially if you can create conversation.

      I can create conversation but I wonder if people think I am weird. After I leave a place, does one person throws a spitball at another person's ear and before you know it, they have a garrulous conversation about the poor, weirdo who just left.

    4. sweater sets, huh? im in

      I feel so lonely like life is a dance where I push away and people push me away in dance steps that no one can follow. It is like people dancing the Funky Chicken or some other stupid dance the way people did in disco days especially if they wore polyester.

      One of my boyfriends wore light blue polyester, top and bottom. If he had an erection, you could see it through the material. That is a frigging stupid material.

      But all this drivel is really about death. I am afraid to die. It all comes down to that but I like to complicate it.

      I have a conclusion but it is a platitude. I hate when people throw platitudes at you like if someone shoved a Kielbasa down your throat. It is that much of an offense.

  18. If you have pets, your fridge coils may does need to be cleaned more over and over
    again. A metal is especially used in armor-piercing projectiles.
