    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...

    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...

    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!

    Or Am I?

    After all the crap I've been through during my life, mainly the past couple of years I am surprised that I have not gone off the deep end...or medicated at the very least. But I've been told that I just have a positive way of dealing with things and a high tolerance level for...

    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...
