    Heavy Sigh

    Ever just not know where you are or what day it is. I know I'm breathing but I'm so mixed up that I don't know which way is up. It's like being in the ocean, diving down into the dark and not knowing which way to go to get out. Only I don't have an air tank and I feel like I'm...

    After yesterday I honestly don't have energy

    for anything. Crying is about all I can do at this point and my tears are running out. I went to bed crying and woke up doing the same. He and I have big decisions to make. We do know what we have to do. It's just realizing that the last 15 years of my life were spent fighting...
