Well, that's the problem with the Beast. It ain't singular.

The Beast I was born with? I'm trying to get it to sit, stay, lie down, rollover, play dead. If you gotta live with it, might as well make it a companion -- contentious, for sure, but as tame as possible and see if you can find some value, joy, amusement, whatever with it. I decided I don't want to be normal, if being normal means giving up my Beast. I couldn't be the person I am today without it -- I'm not so sure I could have reached where I am from a purely "healthy" path.

This other Beast is an intruder and is definitely NOT welcome in my life. It will leave its clawmarks on my soul forever, but I **will** exterminate it. Whatever level of Hell it came from, I'm gone to send it back several levels deeper and see how it likes that medicine.
