Vulnerability is Strength

I’ve never been the type to ask for help. I honestly hate asking for help or needing anyone’s help for that matter.

I spent the entire time sleep deprived. Either I slept too much or not enough. If someone did not hear from me in a while, it was safe to assume that I was sleep. I have gotten anywhere from 2 hours of sleep to 18 hours of sleep during this dreadful time period. I felt like a zombie and…
