    People Want To Know Why I'm Not Insane.

    I have every right to go nuts. Bad childhood, bad parents, even a genetic disposition. But it just seems too easy. I may be a bit crazy but I'm not insane...legally.... I just think those who are insane can't handle the real world so they have to make their own. I'm not talking...

    My Life

    I thought I was an only child until I was 9...I'm not. I'm one of 6. I was kidnapped once. My parents divorced when I was little and my father was emotionally abusive. I met my 5 siblings when I was almost 10, saw them periodically until I was 12, and didn't see them again until...

    Give It Another Few Seconds...

     Don't worry, it's coming. The equation looks something like this: 2 alcaholic parents + middle child complex - any sense of similarities with siblings + college life in general - social skills - life skills = ... me!

    A Sanity Clause

    Or are we just fooling ourselves? Maybe I am or possibly we all are and just don't know it. The extreme annoyance of my set of circumstances is driving me nutty. What we have gone or going through hasn't it already brought us down that road. Could be traveling in that state of...

    Everything In My Life Seems So Confusing....

    I never know what is what. I never know if what I am feeling or thinking is normal or right. Consequently, I end up driving myself absolutely insane. The issues are the following: 1. My ex best friend. We have been friends since we were 13, she has always lied about things quite...

    I've Always Been Crazy

    There is an old C&W song by Waylon Jennings with the refrain of: "I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane". It is sort of a life motto of mine!

    I'm Not Crazy, I'm Just A Little Unwell

    If you knew my family, you'd know I came from some pretty interesting background to begin with.  Add to that the crap I've been through and the people I've been around most of my life... throw in the fact that I'm living in a town I hate with no job, no money and still...
