    Last night, I was getting a coffee,

    in a drive thru McDonalds, and felt so sad about different aspects of very bad things that have occurred in my life; parts that made me fearful, anxious, sad, and felt weak/unworthy. I had tears in my eyes and said 'Please help me...' but it then occurred to me in that moment...
