    Was faced with my worst nightmare today.

    Emotion and feeling took control of my life, I never allow that. Every time I tried emotion-- I learned the hard way its a big mistake. Years ago I decided I was better off alone ; and without feelings or attachment. Have always tried to do the "right thing", especially for...
