    Suicide In My Family

    I really hate this word and I hate the fact that so many people choose this as a solution. When I was 17, I received a letter from my Dad telling me that my step-brother committed suicide. He used a sawed off shot gun and killed himself in front of his girlfriend.  He...

    "the Scars? Oh, I Ran Into Some Tangled Barbed Wire On A 4 Wheeler."

        How many times have I had to say that to children and less than discreet adults?  My former boyfriend used to make jokes about not having sharp objects around the house; he chose Thanksgiving to approach the subject with a house full of relatives.  I...

    People Need To Know, Need To See And Hear

    This one goes out to my cousin, CJ, NL and IA.  You were/are/always wonderful: it's not your fault.  I love you. I've known several people, not including myself, that have tried desperately to rise from their situation.  I see them drowning in their own problems...

    My Story...

    Usually I just copy and paste a story I have from that time in my life but not today. I was 14 and involved in sports, extracurriculars, and drugs and alcohol. Balancing all of that was a nightmare. Being popular and hiding all of the "bad habits" at the same time became too...

    Damn Caller Id!

    Ask yourself this. Would a person go shopping, fix dinner and then commit suicide? So often on those massively popular TV detective shows, the probing question is put forth for consideration: "Would a regular person really take the time and effort to do such and such, and...

    Not A Laughing Matter
