    Just started counseling

    and I have to say that it's improving my mental state already. I'm not a monster and even though the things I've done haunt me I've learned that it primarily wasn't my fault. It's hard to tell myself that sometimes but at the same times its a relief. Life is difficult but it isn...

    I was an ambitious young man.

    By 19, I had a brand new camry, my own apartment and was the youngest supervisor at UPS with a fiance. But at 20, I lost my kidneys and everything else, including my fiance. For years, I have been through hell with surgery mess ups, being in Intensive Care Unit, my car flipping...

    My last post here was in August.

    I didn't make a full recovery, and I cut again. I lost all sight of hope and God. I tried killing myself a few times, then got scared and stopped myself or puked up the pills. I was doing terrible. But on Friday night, I told my mom. She was way more supportive than I thought...

    I'm recovering from the years of abuse,

    lost friends, hateful words, self harm, neglect, and most of all; no one caring. I'm ready to fight until I'm happy. It's time to be the right me. It's time to move on.

    It's Like I Got New Glasses!

    I have recently seen myself and my life in a new light. I had to let down my guard a bit, accept love, accept help, and believe that good things could happen. I had to believe that I deserve truly good things to happen and allow them to begin to unfold. Story to be continued...

    If you've seen any of my posts,

    you'd know that I haven't been the most positive person lately. I'm ready now to accept the fact that I'm going to be hated by a lot of people and I understand that it's a part of life and more importantly a part of Gods plan. I was listening to some music earlier and the song...

    Somewhere In The Process, I Learned To Think Optimistically

    I feel like I'm finally getting my feet back on the ground. Of course, you could argue that's not necessarily true since my car just broke down and I was two hours late to work today, but that's another story. I had a really rough couple of years after college. My best friend...

    Growing Pain

    I don't think I know anyone who doesn't have issues.  It's hard to grow up and not acquire bruises and scrapes along the way.  Whether it be your parents divorcing, staying together when they shouldn't have, losing a parent, being adopted, or even having the most ...
