Jameson, thank you for sharing your story — if in some way my telling my story encouraged you to articulate yours, that makes me happy. I’d encourage you to try writing your own piece for Medium where you flesh out some of the important and interesting themes you touch on here. I love your line about how all our silly meaningless Facebook posts will die with us — what a startling truth bomb!
