I feel as if others try to fix it for me but they can’t possibly. I know they do it out of love, concern and for how it effects their own lives. I do what I know helps me best which is exercising, writing, painting and burying myself deep into a good book. Sometime the journey in a good book may be all it takes for me. I realize these are isolated outlets I utilize to help myself feel good but they work for me and allow me what I need to give back to those who consistently give to me.

Thank you for reading. My best to you and your friend.
