    Wasn't Sure...

    There was a time I wasn't sure I'd live to see 30, let alone my current 34. I spent most of my 20s in and out of psych units, mostly for suicidal thoughts.  Add to that dealing with hardcore domestic violence and some seriously scary health issues...yeah.  It was a pleasant...
