    As A Child

    I always thought there was something really wrong with me as a child.  I didn't like to be touched by my mother. I hate it when she sings and have to leave the room. Its not that I don't love her, I do. I really do care for her. It would put me into a cycle of self hatred...

    Pain From Touch
