25. Many years ago, I had a major breakdown
Spent time in ICU. Everything was stuck in high gear. Couldn't sleep, couldn't eat, couldn't sit still. Never want to go through that again. Hope you can focus on the positives in your life. I know it's hard when everything seems to crumbling down around you. Take my word for it; fighting the negative is a thousand times better than giving in and going on a ride you'd never wish on your worst enemy.
