I've never contemplated suicide, and I could not imagine what must be the person to at least think, not what to make. But here today, these thoughts have visited. I do not plan on doing. Went to the Internet, has introduced a search engine something like "painless suicide methods", and all awake. How I was just thinking about it?
And I thought about this after .... damn how stupid. It has started after love, well, this is one of the components. In the present I fell only 3 months ago, that's for sure of this, I understand that, because that is completely stopped thinking about myself, but about him. I do not care what we do and where we are. If he's around and I feel him, I'm too happy. I and the kitchen is a bomb worse one that fell on the Hirasimu, but learned to cook for him (though is not very much, but, damn it, I'm trying). The fact that this guy is bi and when meeting he once told me that he wants relationship only with a girl, he needs a traditional family. It happened that for 3 months, we live together, but soon I will have to move, and of course I do not wish. Having decided that during the time of cohabitation has changed something for him to me, I raised this topic. And that's all ....... He recalled that mentioned it, and he would still be of opposite-sex family. Next, feelings, mine, I can not describe them. I do not want to part with him, really, even for a couple of hours, and the fact that soon will be the end,not happy end, then his wife, children ..................... Here we go again tears come. And then there's this whole situation with gomofobomi, homophobic laws, murders of gays. I and my whole life as a groundhog peeking out of burrow, and quickly home, preferably in the city by taxi to move around. I can not describe what I feel.
