“I had no desire to even pretend to care about her. And it absolutely terrified me. This gripped my heart to such an extent that I didn’t even have the desire to try to overcome it. I mean, I was flattened by it. I was devastated by it. And it wasn’t the ‘baby blues.’ And I was told it was the ‘baby blues’ at first. And so then, what was wrong with me was even worse. I thought, ‘Well then I must epitomize failure if I can’t even get past this.’ Very slowly, I desired to be around her a bit more…I started to like her a little bit more. I can smell her breath now and my mouth waters.”
