{June 1, 2012}   Dear Amanda

Dedicated to my alter ego that haunts me, lives with me, loves me, hates me, torments me and kills me. One day one of us will win.

That whole album was awesome! By alter ego what do you mean?

I call the darkness/depression that comes over me Amanda, I felt it was easier to focus on it as an entity and then I could quantify it. My way of coping, finding a way to make it tangible. It helps. Like I am yelling at something to go away.

Yeah that makes sense! When I was going through a trauma I developed another “personality” to help me cope. Her name was Sarah. She turned out to essentially be what would make me borderline later.
