Sometimes I wonder about epidemiology. So we gain weight and don't exercise and get older and develop diabetes. Sometimes I wonder about the epidemiology of diseases like depression: Can the onset be like diabetes, an overuse of the body's resources to deal with its environment?
If my life leaves me crying
And crying and crying and crying,
Can that use up my heart's ability
To heal itself, to get over the pain
On its own?
And when the chemicals we throw at the pain
Don't stop the tears bleeding from me,
Is there a transfusion of strength,
To cover the scabs and seeping wounds?
