Title: Tragedy

Sorry I'm only
Human you know me
Grown up oh no guess again

My days always
Dry up and blow away
Sometimes I could do that too
But make no mistake that

When you need a friend
You could count on anyone
But you know I'll defend
The tragedy that we knew as
The end

Progress, changing
Growing then giving up
Somehow we're never quite prepared
But I understand it

When you need a friend
You could count on anyone
But you know I'll defend
The tragedy that we knew as
The end

So taking you with me would be like
Taking all your money to the grave
It does no good to anyone especially
The one you're trying to save
But it's so hard not to save

When you need a friend
You could count on anyone
But you know I'll defend
The tragedy that we knew as
The end



I felt the urge to hit my knees this morning and have a good damned cry. So I did. A few minutes of sobbing, coughing, and finally getting off the floor. I just needed it I guess.
The Holidays are upon us. And here we are again.
Another year with one of our number missing. I was reminded I guess by a post on a forum I read.  Then I heard the song by Brandi Carlile and just decided to have it out before it ate at me anymore.
I have too much work to do to let this continue.

Aww, hope you feel better - you know you can call on me or my mom for anything, anytime, though we're all hard up for money right now, hehe.

Perhaps you should get a lightbox - if your insurance doesn't cover it and you can't afford it, "full spectrum" bulbs are pretty cheap (less than $10) and help simulate daylight. Are you taking an anti-depressant? Zoloft helped me a lot - exercise helps a lot too. A study showed that exercise helps more than medication and therapy put together!

I know it's not exactly the year to be frolicking outside, but it would probably be good for you to get out as much as you can, even just walking around the union or your dorm - just try not to overwork yourself at work, and don't let them make you feel bad if you need to go back to your room!

Maybe in a couple years when I have an apartment in Hawaii, you can come and move in with me, hehe. That would be awesome!

*Sends hugs* You take care of yourself, you're too special to us to see you be this sad.

Just had a temporary emotional breakdown is all. The weather, combined with the time of year and then just feeling overwhelmed had it all fall in. x.x
