I would say that yes, your assessment is more or less correct.
I'm happy to report that in the year or so since I wrote that, I've made a number of positive changes in my life.
When I was 16, I dropped out of high school. In March, I enrolled in a local community college to get my high school equivalency. After than, I plan to take business classes with the same community college. I've also lost weight. I've not been weighed in well over a year, but judging my the fit of my clothes I've been shedding pounds.
My dog (and best friend) Frankie and I take nightly strolls around the block, as I can't stand being out and about on foot in the day. It's very much a shame thing, I feel like how the Elephant Man must have felt, but unlike his affliction, mine is of my own making.
