" The paralysis has seeped deep into me, settled into my spine, kind of. Most days I feel like an energy vampire is constantly leeching my energy away. I'm always mentally and physically exhausted.
I've lost my passion for working, and that is extra bad because I'm a person who cannot work if I'm not passionate about it. I can't work just to work.
Something inside me has broken, shifted, changed, doesn't fit any more. Like having a broken bone that just didn't heal properly.
And until it does, I'm kind of stuck. Like, when you need to go to the bathroom, then you need to go to the bathroom. You can't do anything until you go to the bathroom. Well, until I figure out how to get myself out of this mental place I'm in, I can't move on with my life."
