Homecoming is a day, a weekend, a celebration. Life, recovery takes longer.

Now the flip side of that is that life coming home wasn’t quite as simple as you thought it was going to be?

No, no.

What was hard about coming home?

What was hard about coming home, just trying to assimilate with everyone else. Everyone already thinks that you’re weird and you’re different. So it’s like you already got that going against you. It’s tough, especially kids, they can be so cruel, they can be so mean. High school was cool, like okay, to do that. I lost a lot of friends, but I figured a lot of people just didn’t know how to deal with me being so different?

So that, I forgive people for that, but when I went to U. Mass. they thought I was a normal kid but they’d see that I was kind of weird a little bit. (There the attitude was) screw this kid, I don’t want to know what going on with him. So I was like, I was kind of on my own the whole time I was in college.

There’s a honeymoon period everybody’s clapping.

Yeah, exactly, yeah.

That you’re the miracle kid.


And you used that term.

It’s the title of my book, yeah.
