    Unwanted, Unloved And Lonely...

    I feel as if my parents don't like me anymore! I'm 15, and doing well in school, I am an RAF Cadet, mostly responsible and everything, but nothing I ever do seems to impress them. If they pay me a (very rare) compliment, it's clearly forced, and fake. If I want to have a rational...

    Not What They Planned For!

    I think my mom and dad made a common mistake when planning to have me:  they expected a perfect little clone of themselves.  Instead they got me.  I may be a lot of things, but a clone of my parents is NOT one of them!!!  Both Mom and Dad are crazy smart and...
