    I Am Not The Embodiment Of Needy, But I Do Acknowledge It

    I have been needy all my life.  Maybe it's because I'm hearing impaired.  Maybe it's because I've never really had a good friend to look to.  I have ruined every close relationship I've had because of my neediness.  But the first step to fixing any...
