    This Is Why I Worry

    Emellio was my first proper boyfriend. We met at school, he played the bass in the school band and I played the drums. We did everything together. We always had the odd smoke and whatever but it never seemed to be that big an issue. When we hit 15 I kind of stopped because...

    Lost Forever

    I lost my mom in the fall of 1990 to sclerosis of the liver from years of alcohol and drug abuse. Those years were heart wrenching. Her and my dad dabble in recreational drugs quite a lot in the 70's. By the time my sister was born, she was a full fledge addict. I was 7...
