The First Time I got Stitches…

Was today. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen since being diagnosed with a muscle disorder. Too many times to count. Most of the times I can walk away with a little bruise here or there. Sometimes I have to go to the emergency because I tore a ligament or something. Today, I […]

Going Back in Time…

As I write this, the world around me is completely quiet. I am only left with the silent beats of my own heart. I want to just go to bed and sleep all my thoughts off but my heart won’t allow me. It’s speaking to me so loudly tonight. I am the only one who […]
