I like being different. With being that way you don't become boring. Over the years I have had many faces, wore many hats, but on the out side my body was the same. Inside, I hid the pain, hurt, sickness, to carry on with what had to be done. The only way I kept from going around the bend, was write. Some of the stories I wrote I didn't believe I did hen I began to rewrite to have work published. There are good days and there are bad days, but I keep searching for the light at the end of the tunnel, where I hope to find my dream. A time when I am ableto say 'I made it' even though I suffered along the way. To achieve my dream will help over come the pain and hopefully make smalls changes where I can speak out, not hide the reason why I have been different. I believe there are many ways of being different, on the surface, or what is hidden from sight.
