    What It All Adds Up To

    And I Hate To Admit It!

    I mean I really do, I hate to admit that I battle with negative emotions, stress and fatigue. It all comes from my depression, my eleven year long battle with depression. It's hard it really is, something I feel like no one understands, I put on a happy face and tread through the...

    Giving Up

    My God, up above, I've brought shame not only myself but you too. I ask you for forgiveness but I don't even deserve it. All I can do is to apologize. But will you turn your back on me? I'm so sorry.
