    Why's it so hard just to tell people that I'm not okay? I'm in such a bad place these past couple of weeks, worse than I've ever known and I'm trying to deal with this alone because I just can't say anything to anyone

    Right Ear: Lobe (19mm/5mm/1.6mm), inner helix, orbital (Top)

    Today has been a pretty bad day. I've felt low and more self-loathing than usual. I'm usually okay with hating myself, but sometimes it gets to me, and I suppose it's gotten to me today. I've been feeling really stressed, worrying that my friends find me annoying and stuff like that.
    Current: 9mm lobes, 5mm left tragus, 5mm left conch, tongue web, nasallang, left rook, left anti-tragus, right tragus, right daith, right snug, right forward helix, bridge, 5mm septum, three-point left helix spiral, double left eyebrow

    Planning: ​ Vertical labret re-pierced

    I'm starting to realise how much travel has done for me. When I was talking to my friend from home he was telling me how proud he was of me and that if someone had told him a year ago that he would be sitting in Bangkok with me he wouldn't have believed them. One of his friends has just started a similar route to me and he was telling me how he'd told him he was scared and his response was 'why? Alyssas not scared' and it's true, I'm not anymore. Like today I hopped on a plane to cambodia, sorted a visa, didn't panic when the hostel said they'd been overbooked and only has me down for one day not 3 then I went straight out and pottered round before heading up to the bar where I've sat talking to a few people for the night.
    Complete turnaround to 2 months ago when I didn't want to leave the house in case I saw somebody I knew and avoided all social situations.
    i still have a few issues with people as I'm still completely socially awkward but my confidence had grown so much and I'm not as worried about what others think of me anymore. Makes me kinda sad to know I'm going home in a month.




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
