    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...

    Doctor, nurse, vet, and some sort of inventor that invents something wickedly awesome. I honestly thought I wasn't smart enough to be a doctor, nurse, vet or inventor. I still don't, not really. We'll see... I still think it would be cool to be any one of these. But since I ...

    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.
