    The Crap I Experienced Made Me The Anxious Mess I Am Today

    Ever since I've been young I've been a victim. I didn't realise it until I was much older what had happened and what it's effects were on me...so I guess I can say this is my first opening of my secrets. I have not even told my closest friends or my partner since every time I try...

    When It Was So (Deleted) HOT!

    In the very early sixties, when we were still trapped in classrooms past mid-June, the teachers opened the windows to their maximum height and turned on huge box fans. That didn't help one bit, and we were pinning down paper with our hands or textbooks while we sweltered. One of...

    I Had No Control Of My Life

    My childhood was spent living and breathing however my mother wanted me to. Because of their businesses, my family was well known in our area and my paranoid, superficial liar of a mother always wanted to put up appearances. It was (still is perhaps) her goal to have everyone...

    It Shaped Me Into Who I Am

    I sincerely hate looking back on my childhood, but as much as I hate it, it shaped me into who I am now. My earliest memories are of visiting my older brother in the hospital after he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. He was 10. I was 3. My mother had to stay with him...

    What can I say? Just the usual suspect,

    the bullies, the picking on, the anguish you want to do something but you couldn't? I suppose I beat myself up every now and than. Sometimes I wish I could just forget my childhood but it makes us who we are and quite frankly I hate who I have become. I was one of those people...

    A Glimpse Of How My Childhood Shaped The Rest Of My Life

    Let me take you back to elementary school. A shy, quiet child sitting in his seat, not a soul to talk to. That's me. Yeah, a lot of kids can relate but can they also say they have been slowly gaining weight, losing energy, etc. with absolutely no sound reasoning as to why that...

    Too Much Of A Good Thing Can Be Bad

    I know my story doesn't come close to being as bad as others, but I hated my childhood and this is why. I'll be the first one to say that I lived the high life as a child. I was homeschooled but rarely did any schoolwork. I was an only child and was spoiled. I went out with my...
