Losing sucks. Itâ€™s been pretty tough the last couple of days. Iâ€™ve been keeping to myself. I havenâ€™t felt like talking with anyone. I haven’t seen anything about the fight. I know I looked really bad. I donâ€™t need to see it, or hear about it to know that. Iâ€™ve been having some serious health problems for a while now.
