    For Many Reasons

    Most of which will have stories in their own groups later on. I have been my own worse enemy really. My mind will not allow my heart to forget. My body will not let my mind. It is a vicious cycle that in 25 yrs I have not figured out how to end. A cycle that I fear will be...
