    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.

    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...
