    What's The Difference?

    Ah, yes, my life before EP. Before I discovered EP, I was always on Myspace (back when it was still hot) doing the same things I do on EP. I didn't have a life then, and I still don't have a life now.

    How I Dreamed My Way Here.

    Before ep I had never surfed the web. I hadn't even been on the internet before. I didn't know how it even worked! When John got sick I got dial up to find some information on how to help him and for the kids school work. After he died I would used the net to pay my bills...

    How Can I Forget

    When I recall my life before EP I realize that I was on the verge of a total breakdown. I was getting screwed from all directions. Whether it was relationships, career or even health. My life was miserable and meaningless. One day I found EP and within a few weeks I was very...

    Life With Ep

    My situation is similar to another member on this site. I had never used the internet or even a computer.  I had managed sufficiently with pen and paper. A friend brought me a computer and introduced me to technology, I am not a computer whizz kid. I self-taught myself...

    Oh My...

    My life before EP was dull, and wasn't very filled with fun. I never used to talk much before EP, and even though I had a lot of friends, I didn't feel complete. I would never sleep at night, and when it was time for school, I'd drain myself completely dry of energy for the day...

    Disconnected

    Before I found out about ep, I felt somewhat disconnected; I live in a city that's boring, so there's nothing a lot to do except going to park, petting zoo, and the beach, this gets tiring for a while. Also, I played computer golf, solitaire, and spider solitaire, I...
