What good is it. What good will it do to tell you how I feel every moment of the day.I mean... What will it do for you. So you can feel sorry for me? Yeah well I don't take to kind to sorrow or pity for that matter either. It hurts, I wont lie to you and say that it doesn't hurt but intensifying ever little detail does not even for one second lessen the pain.

What do you want me to do? What? You're just sitting there telling me everything that's wrong with me and everything that hurts me like I don't already know. Don't you know that what you're pointing out is completely pointless. I know what's wrong with me, why don't you try telling me something I don't know?
