You desperately ached for Don, feeling a booze-lubricated stirring in his long-dormant oats-sowing machine, to stop fighting the irresistible violence of its firing pistons and steam-belching exhaust pipes and finally —…
I’ve had this problem since the beginning of this past semester… And I’m saying all of this now because I’m really curious to see what other people have to say about it.

And the frustration that arises from not being able to communicate these thoughts/feelings further perpetuates me feeling helpless/confused/retarded.
And it’s become increasingly more difficult for me to speak to people because of it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the thought “what the hell do normal people talk about?”
