    I am going to be OK This is not an easy thing

    I've Survived

    I'm more afraid of never knowing than fearing the unknown itself. The unknown does not scare me. What's there to be scared of? I will be fine no matter how my life turns out. My life will not be over when I get rejected or turned away. I am starting to understand that maybe...

    Even Though It Doesn't Always Feel That Way

    Sometimes I get worked up about things

    Empathy, Not Sympathy

    If I described myself as a lonely middle-aged alcoholic you'd probably think I was going for the Sympathy Vote, but that's not how it is at all. I know how things are, I don't blame anyone else for the way things are, and I know I still have things better than a lot of folks. I...
