    my life has been pretty hard in a lot of areas.

    my parents don't want me they don't make an effort to at least pretend that they do. from as long as I can remember they've been handing me of to each other so they don't have to keep me. funny part is since they both do it I just ended up bouncing back and forth between them...

    old and 20 years old. I am about a year from 30 so I am terrified of what life has in store for me this decade of my life. What could possibly be worse than being visited during the night at 10 or waking up next to your dead first born son at 20? there have been many other...

    Compared to many in this world,

    I have been out since I was 13

    and I'm 16 now. I have been bullied for being bi at least once a week since I came out, and it does not feel like 3 years already. Despite having liked guys since I was 10, I've never had a proper relationship with a guy before.
