    I am exhausted. I haven't slept in two days,

    Tiring day, ends up with a bath,

    food and sleep. This really sucks. Wish there was a refueling station. I would have bought a lot of energy and boost up my stamina every day. LOL!!

    I'm sick of having all of these questions in my

    head. I'm sick of thinking. I'm sick of existing. If only we could all take vacations from ourselves.

    I am exhausted right now.

    I haven't been sleeping much lately and thanks to a knee injury I've been dealing with for 3 years already I'm in constant pain, 24/7 and that makes everything, even something as simple as walking around the kitchen to make a meal excruciating. I'm on the list for a second...
