    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It Was Not Long Ago

    Yet, it feels like another life time, I know I might lose EP any second, yet I can't imagine my life without it.
