    Hey all, the name's Breanna... but I hatehatehate that name so call me Icey.

    And here are some things you should know about me:

    + I've been depressed as long as I can remember and have attempted suicide more times than I can count. Most of them I chickened out last minute though because I'm a wuss. Others just didn't work right.
    + I'm not happy I lived through them, nor did they change my point of view on life ~*~magically~*~.
    + I'm very bi polar in personality. Never been diagnosed but I go from one extreme to the next. Right now I'm being very cynical and depressed, but tomorrow morning I'll be back here all sugar-happy-peppermint-candy-canes.
    + I'm an artist. I draw furries. If you don't know what they are DON'T look it up, you'll find completely incorrect meanings. Just ask really. But check my work out here: http://ripfectious.deviantart.com . Also, I'm so insecure about my artwork that just this morning I was going to burn every last paper. Glad I didn't.
    + I'm bisexual and I'm currently dating my girlfriend of three years. Unfortunately she's just as unstable as I am so I have no idea how we've made it this far. Though I love her more than anything and I'd hate to see her gone.
    + I'm overemotional.
    + I'm a masochist.
    + I'm music obsessed.
    + I have too many friends who all have too many problems. So I spend every waking hour worrying over them. I'd give anything to take their sadness away, even if it meant making myself hurt worse.
    + I don't trust anyone. I just recently started trusting my girlfriend if that means much.
    + My life has been a never ending story of nothing but weirdness and angst. And by weirdness I mean I saw a chicken walking down the street today. Not kidding. It was amazing. And angst, well that's self explanatory.
    + I'm a bit of an attention *****. I love the spotlight, but in the same sense I don't care if the spotlight involves more people than just me.
    + I have a perfection complex. Everything needs to be perfect. I need to be perfect. I can't be human. I can't be flawed. My friends say that the only recent I'm not perfect is because I worry about being perfect too much lol!
    + Every school I've ever gone to has said I needed psychological help, unfortunately my parents think "MY DAUGHTER CAN'T BE NUTS" and so I've never gotten any. When I turn eighteen, though, I'm planning on diving in. With what money, I have no idea, but I'll find some.
    + The only things I live for are my girlfriend, my pets, and music.

    This is probably the first time I'm really reaching out on my own will. My friends have to prod it out of me. Even my girlfriend has to beg for half an hour just for me to tell her that I'm upset over getting a B in Psychology. So... this is really a big deal to me >___<.

    Hope it helps in the least. I hate being such a burden.

    Uhm...

    so

    Eek. Seems I have everything on that list except the sleeping patterns. I sleep waaaaay too much instead of too little. But other than that I can compare each of those to something that's been going on lately, but I couldn't really put a finger on it.

    Thanks.

    Kittygirl- Aw thank you. That's sweet of you <3.

    Stranger1- Awww.... thanks. I hope being here will help too.

    Cownes- Thanks for the welcome :3!
