The swine flu put me into a seventy-six day coma at the age of seventeen. This is about my ongoing battle to make it back to living a normal life.
It seems like finding a lasting relationship is impossible. My problem is that it seems so hard to find someone that actually communicates their needs, likes, dislikes, etc, so that I can meet them, even to tell me their pet peeves, so that I can try not to do them. Usually, I am told what … Continue reading Half of a Foundation

I also make license plates, keychain, pretty much anything that … Continue reading Halloween Wood-Burning Art
This is a heavy one for me right now. Being open and honest about the problems you have faced, and even conquered, just seems to make people afraid of you, if there is a stigma around it.
