This website has served me well for the last 10 years or since being released directly out of a cell in a prison which I had spent the previous 6+ years in solitary confinement. Could never have possibly guessed the firestorm I was about walk into, but I’ve made it through thus far – and reveled in the flames…

All things in life ebb and flow, grow and die to make room for something new to begin. I’ve killed my old self to be reborn anew at least several distinct times I recall.

Baphomet

Anyhow, some really weird shit has been going on, some long-time alleged “friends” and “comrades” have just come out of nowhere on straight bitch shit & gossiping stool pigeon weirdo shit… 

But that’s cool, that’s great, in fact. I just try to keep it real. I’m not perfect, I deal with often-incapacitating PTSD every day – if not days on end. Sometimes I do a tremendous amount of shit in one day, or week, or month. Sometimes I barely survive for days or weeks or months at a time.

One thing I’ll never do is talk shit about my friends – or frankly anyone – “behind their back.” Anything I say to anyone I will say to the face of anyone involved who may not be present at the time. I will never voluntarily say shit at all to the police for any reason. Not talking about that. But if I have something to say, its usually something very openly known.

I have had and will have enough difficulties in such a relationship because I grew up in prison, I grew up in solitary confinement. Before I went to prison I grew up in a “family” environment where I was extremely isolated and beaten on pretty much a daily basis by people who called themselves my “parents.” I was almost nonverbal with people I didn’t know. I hated having to talk to people I didn’t know. I failed a speech class in high school because I just categorically refused to speak in front of the class…


 

Bottom line: this website has reached the end of its life. It will remain online as is, unless some security matter or something requires me to eliminate it partially or entirely.

There are a few people who have somewhat unjustly been caught in the middle of larger contradictions who don’t quite understand what is going on, and I apologize for not being able to explain things in more detail. Frankly, in a few areas, I don’t completely understand myself, or only vaguely have some glimpse at understanding. Perhaps someday I will be able to let you know more. But for the most part, people know where they are at with me and why. People know who has been with me and who has not. People know who was standing up and who wasn’t.

And I was happy to do every other thing possible than deal with my own shit. Sure, I tried to work on it here and there. Made no secret of it. But whenever you have a wounded creature, you have predators and parasites who thrive off of those tragic souls. And just to make it clear, there are no “treatments” for the PTSD which arises from the long-term torture in solitary confinement I’ve lived through – and not just “survived” through 7.5 years in different forms of solitary confinement and/or administrative or disciplinary segregation, and grew up under those conditions.
