  • Hi I'm Josh

    Hey, a fair warning to people reading this that what I'm about to share is pretty dark but at the same time its a release for me.
    Its currently 18/05/17 its been one day since I watched my mother take her last breath. She died of metastatic carcinoma, or spreading of cancer. Some images we will never be able to erase from our memory and I can't stop seeing her take that last breath.
    My mother always worried about others, never ever thought of herself so in memory of her I want you all to know whether you're:
    A girl or a boy
    Lesbian, gay, bisexual, straight or anything
    fat or skinny
    happy or sad
    whatever your skin tone
    I'm here and ill never turn you away.
    thank you.

        'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

        'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

        'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'
