    Hello Ladies. Sorry if you read my harsh words on the Dusky blog. Sometimes it all stirs up inside of me again, and sometimes I vent so as not to become too depressed. I'd just pop an antidepressant, but ya'll know how I feel about that.
    I am living proof of the damage done by men whom raype boys.
    It's not like a girl. A man is supposed to be strong. And he is supposed to be there to defend those whom are too weak to defend themselves...and I HAVE done much of that in my life...defending the little guy getting bullied. I used to bully the bullies. But inside, my self worth began deteriorating. I became a womanizer. And by the age of 19, totally emotionall unstable/unnavailable.
    I sank into a deep dark depression, even deep underground in the cocaine importing world. "Hollywood" they called me b/c I only wore my sunglasses at night. I worked all over the Rocky Mtn. area going after people who had burned clients of mine. Bloody. Assaulting even police officers. (3 times) Suicidal. Moment of ...

    Moment of clarity. Sought help. Psychiatrist said Prozac. Took one. Ultra violent reaction. Sought second opinion. Found drug free therapy. Stuart Smalley type inner child therapy at first. It was if I had a little boy me following me around. Couldn't (wouldn't, actually) take it. Back to depression.
    Barfly womanizer again. Suicidal. Moment of clarity. Back to therapy. Therapist commits suicide. Imagine me paying YOU to sit there and hear me out.
    Crackhead living on streets of Vegas. Suicidal. Moment of clarity. Greogory M. Ortega (current therapist). Here I am. How do you like me now? Greg thinks I'm the bees knees and keeps wanting me to write a book. I had one 1/2 written...'Collbran'. Wouldn't do it. It would have killed too many people I love so much, I stay away from them for their sake under the guise it's for my own well-being.
    I DIDN'T DO THIS TO ME. And I'm a THOUSAND times the better man I was not too many years ago. Even in my weakened condition...even my age...my mind and body are...

    ...mind and body are well above average as far as being a professional/knowing what's up in the world.
    I'm posting this hoping for some understanding from you folks. Ya been a big part of my life and a purty good place to go for well over a year, maybe 2 by now? And what I post next is chilling to me, and I hope you too.

    Addicts don't want their next fix. They need it. Adolph didn't give a sh/t if it was viamin B12 or amphetamines after he became addicted.
    My belief in God kept me from allowing my mind to be altered voluntarily by taking mind-altering prescription drugs for my manic depression. This is MINE. leave it alone. ty
    🙂 This has all been an adveritsement for my upcoming retelling of the story some of you heard about a year ago. Keywords 'A Soldiers Story. The Drugging Down Begins' if you want to search cyberspace. (or post an email and i'll fwd. to you. lmao. like that'll happen)
    More adults who were rayped as tiny little children not even old enough to distinguish betweeen fantasy and reality are among US than you think. THIS is where we got our national craving for drugs. THIS explains Cosmo ripping on emotionally unnavailable men. Yes, this explains little girls still looking for their daddy @47. Where the heck was she when it was going down?. Ditto little boys @53. And they call it 'madonna complex'. fin

    Hi, Philip.
    I haven't been on the Dusky thread, as a) it's too long, and b) I've been having problems even staying on the net.
    It keeps booting me off.
    I know of your painful journey, and I wish you well.
    I've never wished anythibg but success for you, but I do need you to remember one thing: that everyone's path to healing may not be the same as yours, and not to disparage those people for choosing a different way that helps them.
    Good luck to you.

    Oh, one more thing:
    Cosmopolitan Magazine is the silliest publication ever; their portrayal of women should also be taken with a grain of salt, because it is a misrepresentation of intelligent women everywhere.
    Our branch doesn't even keep copies of it, that's how much disdain we have for that "Publication".
    What does one call women who hate men?
    Because, I feel, that is truly how Cosmo depicts itself...
