    What's A Girl To Do

     I've been reading your stories, and some are similar and some are not, I try not to be selfish , and realize that life can always be worse than it is, so in a sense we are all blessed for what we do have. But there is a dark side and I would like to find the light and be happy...

    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.

    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.
