    Going Berzek

    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...

    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...
