I have been following and listening to MGK since his fordt music video "chip off the block". Hands down my all time favorite. Most of his songs have helped me over come battles that i have been fighting since i was a young teen. Ive gone through the addiction stages and have hurt myself and others. Right now im batteling a court case for custody of my only son. I work anywhere from 5-6 days a week sometimes 8 hours sometimes 12. My co workers and others that are around me like my "friends" are always bullying me. I work my ass off and do nothing but help out at work and helpy friends. Im always crying or getting blamed for things that are not my fault. For example, my job is to take care of individuals with dementia and there are things that we have to do that not a lot of people enjoy. I work with women all day long, and of course women like to cause drama and talk shit. But this is gone too far. I feel like everyday im crying and hurting myself or over doing it. I have bi polar disorder and PTSD plus im manic drpressive and hear voices and all that. Im always being blamed for the shit talking at work because of my mental disorder. My dream is to meet MGK and be able to vent and talk to someone whos been through a lot of what ive been through.
