'The side affects [sic] that you and I have both experienced due to my mental health have been so overwhelming and demanding. 

'These include no sex drive, no emotion, no sympathy, no understanding, no patience, no happiness, no inspiration and no love! 

'This makes me so sad that this was the person I had become, and writing this makes me cry. I'm sorry.'
