As I sit behind this computer screen thinking of different ways to start my post, my mind is racing. This is probably going to be the hardest post to write because it is not easy to talk about things that make you re-live the events that leave you battered and scarred deep inside.

We all depend on each other and make sacrifices but sometimes the sacrifice is too great and the only person who can pull back on that is you.
