So it is a mish mash of true events that happened to the narrorator Finnley Newkirk. Telling the story of a man coming out of a dysfunctional and abusive childhood and how he tries to find a normal relationship as he gets older. The story begins in the ER at Methodist Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, and the backstory is told through different sessions with his therapist while staying on the 6th floor (locked psych ward).
I've left this one alone for awhile because it was really bringing me down. Writing, usually catharsis for me, was becoming a burden both emotionally and mentally.
