    Tuesday

    I left work Tuesday with a horrid migraine and in tears. I could hardly speak and MnM suggested I let the teen drive, so I did. I didn't care that I had class, I didn't worry about having left work early, I couldn't think anymore and needed relief. I was desperate and...

    I've made the effort to make many friends

    but I look at how far have come socially and it's not far. I'm not the most attractive guy and I'm not the tallest. I'm not the funniest and I'm not the fittest but I believe I'm a good person and I have a good heart. Unfortunately while that's good enough for me, no one else...
