    More So Now Than Then

    When I was young, my parents got a bit over excited at my brothers intelligent level. To say it didn't irritate me would be a lie. But it always seemed like they were so focused on him and I had trouble making friends so alot of time I spent alone and it hadn't bothered me. As I...
