    I feel so emotionally

    and physically drained right now. I have barley left the house in days, however, always seem busy, I get no sleep and just feel like I'm trapped inside a black hold. Emotionally, mentally and physically I don't feel well at all.

    I don't know what that is. I think this 'ideal' life is nothing but a fantasy. This is the way things are. I guess its either take it or leave it.   ... i rather leave it.
