    Abandoned and Abused, Ultimately To Lead A Life Of Emptiness

    As a child I was abused at home. Naturally I went to school, and because my father often had public displays of drunkeness in my small town, I would get beat up and picked on relentlessly. It was apparent I was vulnerable to the kids at school, and had no friends. When I say that...

    Inferiority Complex?

    As far back as I can remember, I have always felt like a 'misfit'.  My 1st (and last) birthday party I was invited to was in grade 1.  I can only remember feeling such a strain in talking with the other children.  In my bottle cap glasses worn to compensate for...

    I'm not even sure where to begin.

    I've never had an interest in most relationships - friendships or otherwise - so I never participated in anything when I was a kid (not that I'm not anymore; still just 19). It all seemed so shallow. I had nothing in common with any of the people I saw - or at least not enough...
