    Detroit, Michigan area (due to the decline) down to Florida, where I was born. A lot of my "family" is in the Detroit area still...but since the death of my parents and sister, I rarely hear from anybody. I tried to reach out to cousins from time to time...but I am the outsider...

    It's Their Loss

    They miss out on a great person. They love to mess with my mind. They hate me for an unexplained reason they're not willing to share. They expect me to let them walk all over me. They owe me a lot! Yet they act like they do no wrong, but point a finger at me. They tell me...
