    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    Whenever I fall down I manage to pick myself up no matter how hard it is, no matte how much it hurts, no matter how much I just want to lie there and die I make myself get up and get on with things. Hopefully this is the last time I will have to do this.

    That's Life In A Nut Shell

    It can be sickening or challenging..fun or routine. Point is, life never stops when you're in it, to win it.  That's what coping is sometimes.We've all wanted to just lay down & give up..rest. Take a long break & maybe someone will do a nice rescue?   Don't count...
