Thanks for putting into words what I could not. I remember the fat belly the T shirt, the gold medal around his neck and the smell of the room and rug as I was forced into it. Yes, it can get better, slow but it takes work and willingness.
it is and has been quite a trip thru life, as last I feel that I am in a better place, it takes work and in my case a wife the was and is forgiveing and helpful. At last a relationship has gone right, messed up three.
