    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...

    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 Tried. I Really Did. Saved Lives For 10 Years Now Being Spit Out Like Rotten Fish.

    We bought this little house (-900 sq ft) several years ago. The house inspector we had to hire told us of many things, but until we moved in I had never walked thru it with shoes off. Thats when I noticed practically the whole foundation was all cracked up. The sellers had...

    So You Can't Say I Didn't.

    I wanted you to let me in, I tried being a friend. But, you pretty much brushed me away. So I want to say **** YOU TOO! Worst part is, you'll never know this is about you and I'll never tell. And I'll continue to keep letting you push me away. And I'll never voice to you that it...
