    My kid is possessed by a Sharpie Demon

    WHY do kids HAVE TO mark things with a Sharpie? Is it innate? It's like when they find a sharpie, the sharpie possesses them and takes over their bodies and they start writing on things, knowing they shouldn't. *facepalm*

    Third time is supposed to be the charm. The last battle was probably the most scared, lonely, and angry I've ever been. I had symptoms, and it took nearly a year before my proper diagnosis. Ironically, it wasn't a specialist who discovered was actually someone at Planned Parenthood...
