    Where Do I Begin Part 2

    September 11th 2001. Obviously not a good day for anybody. I was a Marine at the time at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. We we're getting ready to leave to Afghanistan in October when my Aunt called me. It was regarding my biological mother. My Aunt wanted to know if I wanted to...

    I don't remember how old I was

    when this occurred, but I am guessing 6 or 7. I don't even really remember the whole picture. My mother's boyfriend molested me. He never touched me from what I can remember. Only he made me touch him, and only his penis. I would wake up in the middle of the night with him...

    Even though my experience is not similar as other who experienced the worst childhood traumatic, but never expected that this one will scarred me for life.

    A long story, but I want to say something is that I never expected that this one traumatic experience would scarred me for life. My grandmother has suspected that perhaps it started when I was very little exact age unsure but I don't remember anything neither my sister did...

    Where Do I Begin...

    Here's a start. My Biological Mother was a prostitute, and my Father can either be a Drug dealer, corrupt cop or my Uncle. The woman who raised me is technically my Aunt, who is my real mom's older sister. She's the one I call Mom. From what people tell me, my real mom used to...

    I have realized of late,

    my memories of my childhood is slipping. I guess my brain is considering it a trauma, because it's hard to recall anything about me growing up. Guess the violence and being bullied is giving me a sort of amnesia. I've been thinking, it might be for the best, because hell, it...
