    My Mum Fails To See What She Has Done Wrong.

    She is and has been an alchoholic since I was a child. She is also quite religious spiritually although she still sleeps about, once sleeping with a boy younger than me. She forgets all the emotional abuse such as setting our belongings on fire, feigning suicide, being very nasty...

    Better Like This

    I don't even know anymore what it means or how it feels to be a daughter or to have a mother. Maybe I've never known and never will. It is like a hole, like a wound that will never heal, even if I cover it and forget it is there. But this is still better than having contact with...
