No man is an island

There’s something about this saying that defines us, don’t you think? The solitary life, as much as we’d try, is never as fulfilling as living among other people. Interdependence. Compassion. The one thing that has made it impossible for other creatures to hunt us to extinction.

We can accomplish great feats together.


This is the idea… this is what it’s all about. What we’re all about.

Someone once told me that it takes courage to ask for help. To admit that a situation is beyond your power to fix or overcome. I don’t know about that… don’t know about bravery, even though I like to write about it.

I am twenty seven years old. Born on Christmas Day, 1990. And I am one thousand and eight hundred dollars away from fixing a problem that I have been struggling with for more than half my time on this planet.

I can imagine how that will feel like… the freedom. To want to eat something and being able to. To smile. To be content with the person I see in the mirror.

This is what I think about day in and day out. How am I going to come up with the money to pay for my last dental procedure.

I don’t know what else to say. I don’t know if there are some words that are required when asking for help, to make it so that people offer it to you.

If you’d like to help me out, with any amount possible, towards my last procedure, towards doing whatever possible so I can chew food…. you can donate any amount you see fit here.
