    Im driven to share myself so completely because I dont want to feel alone, isolated and disconnected anymore. I had enough of that growing up.

    This is really about my search for love to make up for a childhood characterized by subtle but profound emotional neglect.

    But what is this really about?

  • Whoa.

  • This just got really deep really fast.

    I dedicate this book to Ed and Max because they DO love me and have all along. They were loving me the only way they knew how when I was a girl. The only difference now is that I know they love me; I can feel it.

    Now I consider these two the very best men I know. And I love them right back.
