    Kinda Behind

    My life was put on hold after I lost both my parents when I was 11. I didn't have any other family or relatives so they put me in foster care system. It was a nightmare. I slowly shut down and eventually stopped talking after a little over a year. I just wanted to die. Abuse...

    The Doctors Told Me I Would Never Have A Family

    I always was fascinated by the way a baby could just be made out of virtually nothing and having a family was my dream. But when I turned 15 and still didn't have my period that dream was taken from me. I have extremely low iron and B12 levels which means my blood isn't good...

    Laft Behind

    My blooming has been delayed in several ways.. socially, physically and somehow even emotionally. Everything in my life always came late. For example, I shed my last tooth when I was 18 and a half instead of 12 or 13 (A gap in my teeth at 18?!?! tsk tsk) and my acne hasn’t all...

    Late Developing Sucks!

    I'm 19 now and still unable to anything that could be considered facial hair! Comparing myself to other guys, especially at school was depressing, as I only hit puberty at around 15 and am still in its slowly developing grip. I just wish I could feel more 'masculine' and I just...
