thanks, guys!
good to know others have that going on, too.
i wroted it for several reasons -

to my wife after our big melt-down. i haven't shown it to her yet. still too touchy a situation.

also how i feel in a mentoring situation with a young man who has some of the same issues as i did when i was his age.

also really feeling shaky at school right now.

and just how people in general - with no knowledge or experience of our struggles - treat us

of course - probly no one but you all - and some day my wife - will ever see it!
