    It's Hard Knowing What's Normal When You Grew Up In A Crazy Family.

    My Uncle Fito (Fee-toe) was my favorite uncle.

    He was a force and a bright presence every time he walked into a room. Everybody in our family felt the same way. He would pick me up and throw me in the air and catch me every time he'd come over. He's let us walk on his feet and make us laugh. I also remember he had a thing...

    My immediate family is absolutely insane.

    None of them think rationally and even though I'm the baby, I hold everyone together. I've kept my distance the last three years though because I can't fix everyone's problems while I am trying to make something of myself. Sad but true.
