- No.

- And we have to work, you know?

And it's like you just want to curl up in a ball and stay there all day. And now I know the tools. And now I know what to do to help. But when I think back to how I was, I don't want anybody in the world to feel like that, to suffer like that. And that's truly why I do it, just to be super transparent about what's happening, warts and all. It's not the sexiest of subjects.

- It's really not.

- It's really not.
