We all go through trials in life. I won't go into much detail about mine at this time.
My mother and I are currently on the mend, but it hasn't been an easy ride. I could not bear the thought of living with my parents. And I could not bear the thought of not being able to work a job. Sadly, my job (which sucks, but at least they raised my pay) helps fuel my crippling addiction to alcohol.
Sometimes it's easy for me to forget how good I have it. I don't have it that bad. I am actually very fortunate to still have both of my parents (it's a miracle they're still married) and my younger brother and his family. And to finally live in my first house.
BTW, I loved your old website, Creative Noise. We share some of our favorite bands:
The Beatles and the Rolling Stones of course
