    My mom was way over protective. I had epilepsy and she really did not want me out of her sight in case I had a big seizure. My curfew was 10pm until I moved out at 20. No joke. It was her rules. Yet, my brother. Oh he could come and go as he pleased. No questions asked. I had...

    Having An Overprotective

    Is being over protective a good or bad thing? Growing up my mother was over protective to the point where I hated her for it. I always felt she did not trust me. Truth was I was not allowed to do the same things as my sisters were at my age due to my learning difficulties. She...

    It's interesting to look back on life now

    You'll Never Walk Alone

    She didn't say that, but it was true.... But everywhere I went, she went with me. When I was 15, and wanted to go to my friends house, she walked with me. I didn't hang out at friends houses like other kids. I didnt really have friends anyways. When I did, she was always THERE...
