It would almost be a miracle if I don't have some form of cancer already. My counter weight is that I always kept myself in decent shape physically and always tried to eat somewhat healthy.

I don't feel like it's a sure thing, just that I should probably stop procrastinating and have a follow up with my doctor to do another test like they wanted to.

At least I will know, but I think that's what I've been avoiding (having to know), which is plain stupid now days. People barely even die from cancer anymore unless it's late stage.
Do you have any reason to believe that you specifically have brain cancer? I mean, any clear-cut symptoms of it? I spent the better part of the first 35 years of my life staring at CRTs and smoking cigarettes (2-3 packs a day for ~20 years). I'm still alive. I'm not in good health but as far as I know I don't have cancer.
Just some neurological issues and some sort of mass in another part of my body that was picked up on a CT scan. I don't have the motivation to follow up on it, but it is starting to creep into my subconscious fears apparently.

I think I would be in more unexplainable pain though if it were caused by cancer. I used to be in pain all the time, but after I quit using chemicals and quit working (lowered my stress) I only get muscle pain after exercise but no migraines for quite a while.

Public speaking anxiety, I have a speech today.

Extreme loneliness. Made the mistake of trying to talk to someone. Was told to leave.

I feel stupid for caring so much but I hate how 'normalized' having certain social media is and it continues to **** with my head, particularly facebook and everytime I log into it looking at my meager friends list and how people who have me on there are probably fully aware of my loserlyness. It makes me want to just delete it again and move on but then I start to feel paranoid about not having it and that also contributes to people finding me weird if they know I don't have one so it's a catch-22 I hate and I just wish the site would keel over and die.

And this is something that has been circulating in my brain for a while and causing me tons of stress. I wish I didn't care so much but it's irritating me greatly and I feel lost and all it does is reinforce how much of a lonely friendless loser I actually am despite feeling like I can 'cope' day to day but when it comes to actually getting to know people/making friendships? ha, who? where? don't know.

Thank you for the support I didn't end up being called and I was too nervous to go up first at the beginning of class, so this week is probably when I'll do it. Which is good b/c it'll give me time to practice.

I'm supposed to go to the ball but my evil sisters won't let me, got a pretty dress & hired a pumpkin coach & everything 😞






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Why do I keep trying to form friendships and bonds? Everyone leaves me for either one reason or another. No matter what I do and how I do, I can't seem to keep friends or get close to anyone. Other people on this site are able to, and many people out there on this ****hole called Earth are able to have friends and loved ones.

At thispoint, I am doomed to be alone in multiple ways. The only reason why I keep trying is to kill time I have between work and sleep, until I die.

You'll make some good friends sooner or later.

All I want is some restful sleep before work in the morning, but it's already almost midnight and I'm still up. Wish I was a hard sleeper like the rest of my family. When I sleep I often feel like I'm barely sleeping. I have to force myself asleep with zzzquil or melatonin and even then it doesn't always work. Honestly, I think if I could eliminate sleep as worry in my life I think I'd be at least a little bit happier.

Today I had the worst headache yet. I am sure I had other headaches in my life... only this lasted all day long. It's the allergies. This is why I hate the beginning of spring, because of allergies. I'm the kind of girl who loves flowers and roses, but allergies... nope! Finally it's 11:31 and I can finally get some relaxing time. Finally put on some meditation music on to relax. This isn't the worst thing, I am sure other people had issues going on at hand, but yeah... headaches are my enemy. I hate them.... =\ I could sure use some hugs right now. Hugs would be nice.
