    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...

    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!

    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...
