    I'll make this short

    I can't really talk to anyone about this

    because it's not a real problem. At least it won't seem like it if I tell them. I'm 1 of four children, the eldest to be precise. My mother is Italian and loud. My father an obese Englishman. He works hard to bring money home, but when he's home he just sits on the sofa, watches...

    I once told my mother I self harm. It took all my courage. She didn't look up from what she was doing and just called me an idiot. It hurt so much. Yet, she wonders why I never tell her anything.
