yeah. so ive been meaning to talk to someone about this. finally made an apointement at the counceling center on dec 3rd. so far away. but i waited this long i guess. i just hate the feeling. the thoughts the flashes of remembering last year. and its all hitting me like a ton of bricks. i completely dont wanna think about last year cause it fills me with anxiety and fearfulness. but i cant help it. blah. it was just such a horrible time with such horrible things. im glad in certain ways things are differnet now. so glad. but in others its exactly the same. fuck.
i dont really want to get into it any further.
