The Magic of Music
Saturday, March 09, 2013      1 comments

His Mood Swings Affects My Eating?
Saturday, January 26, 2013      4 comments

Well no more. I finally figured out that when he goes into his cold, distant mood where he withholds affection and pleasantness, I ate. I guess I was trying to fill that empty space where his love should be. Now I that I have realized that I ... Read more
