    Never

    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

    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...
