    Distrustful and Disrespectful Parents.

    I have lived with my grandmother since I was almost an infant. My mother was addicted to meth and shot up almost everyday and wasn't responsible enough to take care of me. My grandfather was the only thing that could make me happy, but he died in 2001. I was only 11 years old...

    Sad But True

    For 20 years this place has been the only home I have known. I don't want to leave but with the increasing family drama it's our only option. The place isn't bad, it has a pool and a blachony and I would have my own bathroom and walk-in closet. But damn we haven't even moved in...
