Surrounded By Myself

Ava

I warn you this is a long one, I talked a lot about Ava in my book, she was after all my best friend for a long time. Ava, kind, caring, formidable, smart as a whip with a genius level IQ, she was the…

My Final Post

Some days we wake up ready to tackle the world, some days we wake up wondering why we are still in it. Some days the future isn’t just bleak, it has vanished all together, the perfect fantasy land from a long forgotten yesterday has…

Bipolar Disorder, it is What it is.

My biggest failure in life right now is my continued expectation of a clear-cut black and white scientific explanation of my unusual thought processes to be handed to me on a silver platter by a well-spoken Englishman. This is to be immediately followed by…
