    My mind - Complex, intellectual and multi-dimensional.

    I'm asking a question, based upon my sanity. Going back to the early stages of my life (which I can remember very early on) I have been different - I have never been in tune with my peers, although I was accepted into groups and lived a relatively normal first stage of child hood. I was...

    I can't cope.

    I don't know where to start. It's a long story. I was diagnosed with PTSD last year after the birth of our first child. He was born two months prem, severely poorly. We watched him being resuscitated, again and again, sure he was going to die. Luckily, by some God-given miracle he pulled...

    Marriage issues

    Me and my wife have been together for almost 18 years. Since high school. She has never been one to change her situation for the better and her lack of motivation over the years drives me crazy.
