I also need to trust my parents with my feelings. I have always felt that it was pointless telling them anything about myself as I was so different and they just wouldn't understand me. We've fought a lot before, but my mum has really helped in the last few days - including staying up and talking to me for an hour at 2am last night - so I feel a lot warmer towards her than I have for a long time.
I am clearly not beyond human comprehension. Unfortunately I can't help but feel a bit disappointment in that. But that urge, to be unique and somewhat tragic, is childish, and I need to get over it or at least channel such feelings into something productive. I am just down all the time at the moment.
