Yeah yeah yeah. It's lists like these that make us think we have the dissease. Like those stupid commercials - 'do you feel sleepy sometimes? Does your breath smell like roses in the morning? Then you might have cancer!'

All I am saying is, although having found myself in almost all of the 'ways', refuse to feel miserable, although, some time ago, this feeling was my home. But what's the point in feeling sorry when you sit tied up?

You should fight.
