Did you know that my die hard readers love my darker side? I already know that they love when I write about conflict. No one cares that I collect antiques or how much I love Biggie's music. They wanna read about what gets under my skin. They wanna know that I downed half a bottle of Jack and wrote about how much I hate my life. Truthfully I sometimes write about things that I shouldn't. The problem is that too many of my friends and family have access to my blog. They read it, especially when I write about controversy. What happens? It spreads like wild fire. Even the people that don't read it know what I wrote about. True I censor myself not to mention specific persons. I have written stories about some of my friends and family. They were usually anecdotes. Plus the subjects thoroughly enjoyed the piece.

I think my last blog scared a few people. Many of my friends and family have called or written to make sure I was OK. I really wasn't trying to alarm anyone. Actually by the time I wrote it, I was over most of it. I just needed to chronicle my predicament. When I write this kind of stuff, I honestly do not intend to gripe. I'm writing mostly to let the reader's know that I go through stuff just like everyone else. The worst part of hardship is thinking that it only happens to you. My daily torment is very common. There are many of us who struggle to make ends meet. Some of us feel unappreciated, whether at work or at home. We all feel at odds with at least one person in our family. I know it's all a part of growing up. I don't put it out there for sympathy, I put it out there to release it. Once I release it I can move on to the next thing. I love my life. It may not be perfect, but it's better then many other peoples lives, and I know that someday all my hardship will be a memory and will be part of my story.

Before I come out of the gate blasting, there is something I have to say. I thank the lord everyday for what I have and the people that are in my life. I take nothing for granted because I know that there are so many people that don't have half of what I have. Then there are people that have everything and would trade it all for good health. With that being said. Let me tell you something.
