    This Is Supposed to Be Therapeutic

     I've decided to compile a list of all of the amazing people in my life that I've lost touch with over the years.  Most of these friendships dissolved because I fell off the face of the earth (I go into hiding a lot).  I would like to reconnect with all of these...
