    I Still Do!

    Though I have grown up, I can't stop hoping that one day I might be able to find the time to get my way. It's not impossible but requires a lot of sacrifices, and I am not ready for that yet.

    Nothin'

    When I was younger I never dreamed of a future. I didn't want children and the mental illness was so in the forefront that all I wished for was death. I never planned on living past the age of 18... even then I knew it controlled my life. And I certainly didn't want to grow...
