    At 32, I'm Not A Father And I'm Okay With It

    I don't mind not having any right now, biological or adopted.  It's not one of my goals at the moment.  There are still many things that I want to do that I feel I couldn't if I had kids.  I do wonder what it would be like though.  Even more, I wonder when I...

    I Am Going To Be Alone

    I never planned this but time flew by so fast. I was cursed with an overbearing Mother who wanted to hold onto me forever!!! She did not want to be lonely but instead now I will be alone with no one there for me. This is a form of child abuse. I was too good to her and she could...
