5.3 – XY Named V

May 24, 2021

Dear Darkened Rose,

Keeping my nerves at bay has been a lot of responsibility, lately. Since the wedding, I have done a lot to change my brain chemistry to strive to make steps in a more self-sufficient direction.

Well, that took all of my energy for the day (haha). I hope you liked the wedding pictures in the last letter. I obviously have a lot more I need to say to you, so I’ll be back to write soon. In the meantime, feel free to ask questions or give love and advice.

I love you. I miss you.


Enclosed is a cool song that accurately represents how I’m handling this.
