Howdy everyone, its been a minute since I swung here to check in.
This was the first place I went to when I found out my ex wife cheated the first time.. and the second... and the third. When I tossed her out (figuretively) I hit the self destruction button.
Three years later, after failing out of college. Ignoring my PTSD from a long stay in Iraq. Finding out I couldn't drown the pain away with booze. The feeling of being alive was to short and never enough with cocaine. Accepting that the happiness I found with acid wasn't real. I tried to hang myself.
Fortunately I failed physics in college. My mass + acceleration from the drop > the strength of the branch. The thing landed on my head, the next day I went to a shrink meeting and when she saw the marks on my neck she called an ambulance.
A few months later, a stay in treatment plus a PTSD program and a new relationship and I feel great. The legal troubles should go away with time and I now have an amazing woman to hold my hand.
