    Not only emotionally drained, but also mentally. I really don't know how much more I can take. Because everything feels like it's sucking me down with it. I just feel so tired of everything. It's not suicide, I know I could never do that to myself with all the work I've done to...

    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...
