full, clearer confession:
I started listening to Tori around the age of 13. I was diagnosed as having Aspergers so I was always teased and bullied for being different her music gave me [and still does] the voice I needed to survive daily life and cannot thank her enough for that. Somehow I feel as if she is one of my best friends and her songs are our little conversations to help me out when things get bad in life. I am forever grateful for her talents she shares with the world.
