    I'm not getting anywhere.

    I do the same thing every day how can I be getting anywhere? Life is boring and I see where I'm supposed to be but I'll never get there because it feels like I'm on a freaking treadmill.

    Trapped in grief and

    although I live and breath, walk and talk; I am not as alive as I was before my son overdosed at 22. I waver between wanting my old life back and wanting to start a brand new one. I just don't want to be this person who can't escape the pain.
