My life has had a setback. But today I poke my head out from underneath my blankie for a second day in a row. No, there is not much that motivates me to get off the couch here lately except one thing. And that is hunger pains. I lay on my couch day and night but nothing moves my ass like a craving for McDonald's chocolate chip cookies. I could eat those babies for my three squares a day. This is all thanks to the new medicine my doctor put me on. One of the side effects of Seraquel is an increased appetite. Now I crave sweets constantly.
So, at 4:30am my eyes pop wide open. Those scrumptious cookies were all I could think about. I hustle into the bathroom and throw on some sweats and my shoes. I do nothing with my hair.

The car passed by but decided to stop. It was a young woman on her way to work. I hopped in and she carried me home. Thank goodness. It gave me a warm feeling inside to know that decent people still exist in this world. I'm telling you, if you had seen me and my hair you probably wouldn't have stopped.
Would you have stopped for a stranger standing in the road at five o'clock in the morning? To tell you the truth I don't know if I would have myself
