Dear Diary

Sometimes, when I'm feeling in the pitsthe pits of overwhelm, of hopelessness, of disconnected lonelinessthere is a flashing thought that occurs across my prefrontal cortex, and that thought is "Well, I can always just stop living." And it never occurred to me that others don't feel this way.
