    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.

    When I'm alone and bored at home I'm usually horny too, so put my hand in my pants and touch myself. This normally turns into a wanking session after too long.
