    I left home before my 18th birthday,

    because I could not handle any more of my mother. She was always a *****, who often reminded me how much she wished she had aborted me when she was pregnant; after my dad died, she got worse and started hitting me and constantly screaming.

    I have been hurt by everyone in my family.

    It started as being abused verbally by my dad all my life and that damaged my self esteem. I have been threatened by my brother and verbally hurt by every other family member.

    If there is anything I've learned in this life

    is to not depend on anyone but yourself. It's pretty sad when the people in your life who are supposed to bring you up tear you down.

    there is no greater pain in this world

    than having your own mother tell you she doesn't love you. I wish she had just aborted me or adopted me out if she couldn't love me due to the circumstances of my conception. I didn't ask to be born nor did I make my piece of **** ***** do or of a father rape her.
