    who was emotionally abusing me. I didn't come to this realization lightly or easily. I wondered. I did research that scared me so badly, because he was doing every single one of the things I came across, almost. I confronted him, he yelled at me. I know he wasn't a real support...

    It Seems To Be So.

    I spent days wondering, and going back through every action, every conversation over the past little while to see where I went wrong.  What did I say to cause him to sneak out like that? What did I do.  I waited restlessly for an answer, with no food in my system for well over...

    It was by the people

    who were supposed to take care of me- and did to an extent, which makes it harder in a way. I was just a kid, and as a kid you believe what your parents tell you. Sometimes as an adult, it still echoes back. I wonder who I could have been, and who I would be now, if they hadn't...
