    In As Much As...

    I've never really had a family... I've been fending for myself, basically since I was seven. I live alone, no family visits or calls. Haven't heard from them in a long time... Don't really know how my brothers are. They don't care how I am... My family are my friends.

    I Dont Really Have Any Family

    Growing up my mother made love a conditional thing, if i did something wrong she would literally take the love away from me.  when i did something right she would be nice to me.  She has never told me that she loved me.  She would just buy something small and...

    Correction

    I believe "family" has a lot more to do with relationships rather than sharing some similar DNA and I don't have relationships with a ******* one of these people.

    Low Priority

    I don't want to sound like a cry baby or a victim. I was very wanted. My parents tried for 4 years to have me, but once I was born things seemed to fall apart. My mother's family kept moving in, at one time there were over 15 people living in my home. I slept anywhere from the...
