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

    Give It Another Few Seconds...

    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...

    A Sanity Clause

    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...
