    Other than my dad and mom.

    My sisters and I have nothing in common and I don't like being around them they are such negative people. We never talk about life or problems...just do our own thing but we live together

    I wouldn't say I have a horrid life,

    I mean it used to be okay when I was a kid. Then when I got older my older brothers became 'perfect', my parents got a divorce that sent my dad downhill. He became so obsessed with how everyone saw the family, hated that my sister and myself weren't like my brothers. My sister...
