    Ahhh..

    Someplace quiet, away from all the hassles and daily stresses.  To be able to sit back, (or lay back)... close my eyes and get lost in the vast expansion of nothingness, for even a short period of time is all the R & R I need. I think at one point or another, we all...

    It's Called The Looney Bin

    Have you ever contemplated just letting yourself lose it? I have.I can act crazy. Because it's easier to be ill than to face problems. It's easier to snap and in fact, feels BETTER to snap than to be emotionally numb.Yeah, I got **** to think about.

    Can't Think...

    Work is too busy, everything is bearing down on me - no time for laundry, house cleaning, bill paying, etc.  Need not necessarily be a mind vacation, but just some time off from the computer and phone.  I work at home, so it feels like the work part never stops!
