    Out of time to decide. Should I run? Should I hide? For the rest of my life?

    I cant remember the last time I felt happy

    about anything at all, whenever I meet people, even my friends I just have to pretend to be ok. My mum knows I have a problem and that I need to talk to someone, but who is it gonna be and above all, what do we even talk about?
