    It Hurts Just To Know It

    I have lived most of my life the way you may have or possibly will come to know me here. I have always taken great pride in my transparency as it allows people to see deeper and learn more and possibly even understand and believe they are not alone. However there was a period...

    Haunted

    I can remember almost every moment that I hurt someone since kindergarten. In most instances I didn't mean to, and I regret every one of those moments. I'm certain the vast majority of them don't remember it at all, but my memories of it will haunt me for the rest of my days. I...

    Unintentionally. I just want to sit on the edge

    of a building. I've pretty much isolated myself from others. I don't want to hurt anyone anymore. I'm a disease.

    Tourette's

    It's not my intention, but I cannot control it. Well, a bus driver was rude to me, & I cursed him out. Hey, he hurt me 1st, & that triggered off my outbursts, & because of that, the company wants to ban me from their transportation services.

    How can some people be so insensitive. Is it pride? Its all none sense to me. Hard to see him online & its so easy for him to just ignore. Maybe i'll make it easier for him.
