  2. "the color,flavor and spark of life are extinguished"
  3. everywhere is another reason for me to feel sadness and regret.I'm so sensitive.Every little things make me feel sad.I do well on feeling bad and what i should have done
  4. "i feel like i'm in the deep dark hole and can't even try to geet out"
  5. "everything worth living for goes out of focus"
  6. "i've been to tired to chew"
  7. "people can be overstimulating especially when they are cheerful"
  8. "people want me to do things that i should really want to do.I just can't get the motivation for it,and it makes me feel guilty"
  9. "my arms and legs might as well be trees,they are so heavy"
  10. "my soulf left and was replaced the lead"

i rasa i macam depressed sikit right now..dengan abang i yg macam sengal unta ni.

anyway,nice article.thanks sue kerana berjaya untuk 'unpolitic' kan FOB ni.

FOB should open more topics,like sports,health,fashion,design,architecture,computers..banyak lagi..tak perlu fokus kat politic aje.

I kalau nak open topic politic Canada pun boleh,cuma I xnak terlalu politik sangat.Kalau bab psychology,or wanita tu pun selalu i bukak..
