Hello friend. I'm still not letting you in and I wonder if you notice or not. Are the words I have been using, satisfying the questions you ask? Are my actions just as reassuring? I want to know if this mask convinces you. Maybe, if it does, if you can accept it, if it is enough … Continue reading Hello Friend: Entry 2
Hello friend. I tried, but I couldn't bring myself to tell you about my day. I am sorry. You should know that my voice gets caught in my chest somehow. All I want to do is tell you everything. All I want to do is to save you from me. I am in pain. I keep … Continue reading Hello Friend: Entry 1
Have you ever just been sitting in a room, maybe alone or with people who claim to love you and you them, and you just feel the air disappear?

It all starts with hope... This is a lengthy post and I thank you for your patience in reading it.
