    I Need To Find A Way

    I have always felt like I was different my whole life - in so many ways. I want to know how a person like me who is not properly emotionally wired can find a way to live and actually ENJOY a happy and healthy life.

    One Last Second Chance

    I'm the guy who has always been there for everyone else; before I would have shouted this from the rooftops as a badge of honor, as a thing of courage in the face of a world I thought was too cold. I'm the guy who always tried to do right by others; naively, foolishly. I'm the...
