I have always fought for others that could not fight for themselves since childhood and did charity work since I was 12-years old or so which I never stopped doing. I gravitated towards this likely because I wanted to be as much UNLIKE my mother as I saw how much she hurt those who loved her the most (her parents, her husband, them me). My mom was my only parent since age 2, and she suffered from mental illness (Sociopath-Narcissist, Manic-Depression, pathological lying, gambling addiction+++) ever since I can remember & HATED anyone who tried to get her help (especially me).
No matter what obstacles you may have to face in life, that's no excuse to DO THE WRONG THING! I have more problems than most of you ever had nightmares about and not only do I not do the WRONG things, I do as much as I can for sick children and those collectors I can help in this hobby always for free and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I've been very physically disabled since late 2001 at age 34, which continues to get worse every year. I've been on SSD since 2006 & am terminally ill.
