I felt so nervous and confused whenever I went out. As a result, I spent most of my time at home to watch movies, play computer games, and listen to music in the first 3 months....   [tags: Club Review]

The memory effectively crushed any positive feelings he had during his encounter with joy and replaced them with quilt and sadness.
