I am amazed at the direction my life has taken me, amazed that I am still alive and reasonably healthy. I wrote this book to hopefully help other young people know that they are not alone out there. It took a long time and lots of therapy but I am finally content being who I am. I no longer wake up every day wondering if this is the day I finally end my life and escape. I have a job I love, friends that love me, and a savior that makes waking up worthwhile.
