    Headaches

    Yeah. I get headaches when I'm depressed.But more importantly, eh, I get some heartache too. You know, the kind that burns at your soul. And if you ask me, that hurts more than physical pain.

    I tend to keep things bottled up. I don't like feeling that I'm bothering people. I realize that it would be better telling people when I have problems. I'm working on it.
