Favorite Quote:
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. -Dr. Seuss

I don’t feel very much like myself tonight
I’ve had a rough night
I started running
I do that sometimes when I get very depressed
I don’t even know what I was running for - I guess I just felt like it
I thought I was drowning or something
The trouble was, I could hardly breathe
After I got across the road, I felt like I was disappearing
All I felt was this terrific punch in my stomach
Boy I felt miserable
I felt so depressed, you can’t imagine
