    I tried to die once but I kept going

    because I found someone who was just like me. She told me everything and how she stands to fight for 1,000 of people a day for staying alive and I do the same.

    I know I do. It's the drive of my soul.

    And I have multiple. And when I figure one out, I get a sense of peace. I enjoy the little bit of lazy day sunshine. I turn the music on and enjoy a glass of wine. I celebrate the feeling of rightness. But what else? So close I can almost see it. But is it real or an illusion...
