A Brain Tumor Saved My Life

BY GLITCH (NOLASTNAME)
@ VOL 26 ON JUN 18, 2018

Because of a brain tumor and the seizures, constant headache, etc., the one known as Glitch had to retire from working, but what he's learned has in a very real way, actually saved his life. The perspective he now has and the person he has become are exactly where he needs to be. As humans we have a tendency to walk through life complaining about the most minor things when we ought to be focusing on what really matters and not getting caught up in the bullshit. This is how he lives his life now. You should too and he'll tell you why.
