I’m Depressed.

Posted by on Nov 10, 2017 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Got your attention didn’t I. Good. Earlier in 2017 I was depressed and I didn’t know why or where it came from. It snuck up on me and it was terrifying. The only way you can actually empathize with me is if it’s ever happened to you. It’s similar to having children or losing a […]
