    Sometimes I Feel So Old

    I've been living with a mood disorder for 25 years. I'm 39 as I write this, and sometimes I feel like I'm 139. I've been depressed. I've been manic. I've been delusional. I've had panic attacks. I've dissociated. I've been through a lot. I still suffer.

    "everything You Say Can/will Be Held Against You..."
