    Can't Go On

    I now understand how folks get hooked on medication. OMG the pain in the body brings you to your knees, and you beg God to let it stop. People, no way you don't want anybody to look at you as you struggle with every step. Tears flow at the drop of a hat, oh yea emotions run deep...
