  “Let me apologize to begin with, let me apologize for what I’m about to say. But trying to be genuine was harder than it seemed, and somehow I got caught up in between.” ~ Linkin Park If I had known, in the beginning , that by turning my back on the fuzzy world of overpaid, pill happy,”doctors”, I would propel myself into the darkest, saddest place I have ever been, I can’t truthfully say I wouldn’t have done it.

I’ll make the most of it, I’m an extraordinary machine.”~ Fiona Apple Okay, so I am writing my very first blog, for a couple of different reasons.
