My brush (default brush) doesnt blend with itself, if I use the brush outside the radius of a previous stroke it acts as if there was a wall preventing it from layering over (figure 1).  If I stay within the border of the previous stroke, it keeps the "ink" from going past its edge/border (figure 2).  Is there a way to turn this off, its extremely irritating because I have to make a new layer for each stroke to bypass this.  Help!

Looks like you have selected the Colour Replacement Brush Tool not the Paint Brush Tool

Both are accessible from the same icon on the Tools panel, just click and hold on the icon to select which tool to use

You might want to make sure you have the "Use shift key to cycle tool groups" checked in Preferences>Tools. IF not, and you are using the keyboard shortcut (B) to select the paintbrush, each time you press B you get a different tool in that tool group, the next tool in that group is the Color (or Colour ;)) replacement Brush.
