    How The Heck Did I End Up Here?

    Married high school sweetheart, but we'd broken up several times before tying the knot. Had two kids together. Sank deep into post-partum depression after second child. Was moments away from killing myself when I checked the baby's room to see if his Dad had taken him with him...

    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...

    I Want A Chance To Get My Life Back

    I am so far beyond having a "life of which I am proud" that I'm not even sure how to go about getting one anywhere close to it. I spent the majority of my "younger life" (I just turned 40 recently) striving to become the perfect adult. I took it pretty far I guess, earning my...
