PRESCRIBED TWENTY FIVE

It all started three years ago, almost to the day, I had been feeling that my life was a little stagnated and I was finding myself behaving much too pessimisticly in the midst of waves of anxiety and a rather messy end to a messy relationship. We all experience these times in life, times that…
