    I was in a freak accident in 1989. I was four years old and in a car accident. I had an injury to my left front lobe. They found me by a power company truck. i have had some problems from it myself, but it's definitely been graceful how things turned out. I went through a rough patch in my late teenage years to early mid-twenties, but the important thing for this guy to remember is that there is hope. When you are young, your brain is sort of elastic and some parts rewire themselves. I'm not saying you won't have any problems because many of us do, but you can still have a great life after this bud. Jesus has been graceful to me and my family over all.

    @little mister, don't be sad. Have you met my daughter on here before when she was able to post? I haven't come across you yet.

    I am not the type of person that yells. Do you have other usernames on here? Somebody posted as Hey Kenny. Maybe I talked back and forth with you under another username. Just guessing but is that so?

    Well, hi, little mister.
    How are you?
    I don't think we have spoken before.

    Hi, dazzle.
    I am having problems getting online today...something with the net, perhaps?

    I've been in the pool since I got home.
    It was way hot and humid here.

    @banasy ©, I had trouble with this site very early this morning but was able to access all other areas of the net. I had a lot of trouble with the Tuesday thread and gave up and chatted here with little mister.
