I eventually found I could not battle this alone. Took aid of medication. Medication gave me pain relief but also made me numb. I cannot remember the last time I was able to feel emotions. I want to feel happiness again. I want to feel sadness again. I want to feel excited again. I want to feel emotions again. I want to feel again.
