    My Life Is Out of Balance

    So many unwanted changes happened and all those changes that I looked forward to didn't happen! I have no idea what future holds. Things could remain the same or get worse, I have no control over the event, and they have huge effect on my life!

    I need to hear something. Cars, planes, crickets. I need to hear something. The silence scares me. Every night I play music until I fall asleep. Without it I just can't sleep.
