My name is not important, and my story is as common as dirt. I am in a losing battle against a ruthless nemesis. I am addicted to life. From conception it has gripped me. It is intertwined in my very being. It seems like I could never get a strong enough dose of it. I desperately seek it day and night every waking moment and in every wandering dream. My self-filled subscription calls for 24/7 IV. The cure to this addiction is permanent. The only viable alternative is to heed the words of The Son of God. He said “Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it”.
