    Feared, Perhaps.

    If you were able to show my seventeen year old self my current life, I suspect that he would collapse to the ground, vomit and promptly have a seizure in horror and despair. Not that I was prone to doing such things in my late teens, but such a reaction is certainly more...

    Everything Going For Me

    I was tall, shapely in a slender way, and pretty. That takes care of the physical side of things. I was also intelligent, artistic, and talented. That sums up the gifts I was given. I was mildly athletic, more that enough to keep myself thin. I was superstitious about...

    I have never thought for a second that my life would turn out as it has. I'd always assumed one of two things would happen. Option one was being carted off to a crazy farm, the other option was being stabbed/shot/killed. That's because I frequently walk through the wrong parts of...

    When I look back just a few years ago and remember all the things that I thought I would be doing/have done by now, I can't believe that was me. Then I think, if the me of a couple years ago could look at me now, she wouldn't beleive this is me either.

    Life is great. Everybody loves to be around me.

    I'm more independent than ever imagined. I know I have a great head on my shoulders. They say life is like a roller coaster, but I've been on the rise for too long. I'm excited to experience what the future holds.

    At age 6, my life was so bad then. That's when the anxiety and problems at home and school started. But I kept a hope that things would change and that by the time I was 18, I would have the life that I wanted and feel some peace within. I never expected that things were only...

    Thought family was best.

    Thought docs were awesome. Thought meds cured things. Thought brains would help me adjust But never adjusted. And found business ruled. And health never would. Because owners of rulers ruled. Still have hope. But it fades as i age.
