    It's Just How I Am

    Guess this story goes back to when I was little.... I pretty much lived in hospitals until I was 10. (Yes it took doctors 10 years to figure out what was wrong with me!) I've been in so much pain on so many occasions. From that I just want to protect everyone I can from being in...
