My mind tortures me, it won’t let me free. I just want to be me, the old me with no pressure stress and anxiety. My mind tormenting me with all types of fears, with all types of pain, there is no breaking free every day is the same battle that I fight, but can’t win unpleasant, as it is life has more for me.

I won’t give up, never as long as I breathe all will be well.
