    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...
