    Making Our Own Family Connections

    I grew up thinking that I wasn't good enough or worthy of a good family or true friends. I was alone, lonely, and self hatred had gotten to me. I need to be nurtured, cared for and listen too. I just never wanted to be accepting of that when I was young and in to my later teen...

    My mother died in birth.

    We failed to get to a hospital in time so I had to be born an a car park. I couldn't come out the intended way so they had to cut me out from her belly. Enough said there. My father eventually took his own life. I hear she was the only one who could ever make him smile.
