    Have I Been Cursed?

    Nothing ever seems to go right for me. From relationships to hopes, dreams, goals, and even simple tasks. It wasnt always like this for me. I used to have what you would call good luck until I was 27, about 4 years ago. Since then,everything that can go wrong, has and does. I...

    I'm on the brink. I'm about to turn 50

    and it's becoming increasingly difficult to continue on day to day. I have no one in my life that I can talk to. I have so much darkness inside and nowhere to let it out. I think more and more about how I can go on like this but there is no end in sight.

    Will It Ever End?

    After 37 years you would think I would be able to accept things for what they are. That's far from the truth. It seems like no matter how good I have it, I feel empty. Something is always missing. I could go on about my child hood without a father or my ex wife, but...
