    It's not normally something I think about

    but a friend's recent Facebook post about memories made me sad. I spent my teen years battling eating disorders, doing drugs and drinking, and having casual sex with older men. It was just one huge mess basically. I wish I had some good memories from my teen years to share...

    I Don't Know...did I?
