    Only Child

    I am very use to doing most things alone since I am an only child. I had no one to help me when Mum was out & dad was at work.

    I get overwhelmed if there are other people in

    No Family

    After the police found out that my father had been hitting me, I was put into foster care. That happened when I was 10. All of my foster parents gave up on me. They all said I was too rebelious and out of control. What did they expect? I was beaten and bullied my whole life. They...

    After a while of people not wanting to do
