Someone at work passed away. He was a nice old man. That says so little. I know very little about him. He was quiet and was working because he had nothing better to do. How sad. It made me realize I don't want to be him. I don't want to b... Read more

Well, it's been a few months...I have been depressed and as a result I have not exercised. I know in my head that exercise will help stave off depression, but my heart wasn't in it. On a good note, I have not binged in those months, just not e... Read more
