Diary of a Break Up/Break Down
“Day 2; You wake up, you decide not to go to work today. Again. You take 2 sleeping pills…..” Tim has just been dumped by the love of his life. Tina has just split with her boyfriend.
They go into recovery mode – excruciatingly slowly. They’ve heard that writing your feelings down will help…..it doesn’t!
