    I Did

    Due to the fact that my mother was an alcoholic and I was the one taking care of her while dad worked.  I also had 2 younger siblings to look after.  I didn't really have a lot of friends and I rarely went out.  I started taking care of her when I was about 12 after my grandma...

    I Didn't Go to College ...

    I didn't go to college when I was younger, I  feel that I missed out on that.  I also think I  missed out on a lot because of how my family was and how I  was raised.

    I Don't Think It's Exactly a Bad Thing....

    I grew up very sheltered by my parents in rural town, U.S.A. In fact, I lived in the country and only made it to town on school days by bus or when mom had to do the "grocery shopping" once a week. I have to say that this only made me a more creative writer and spun my...

    I Grew Up Isolated

    It was pretty much entirely by choice: I made it impossible for my mother to keep me in school. I hated how alienated I felt there, and decided I'd rather be homeschooled than put up with feeling like a square peg trying to fit through a round hole. I've spent most of my life...

    Yes, I Did!

    My birth was a traumatic one... not for me, apparently! But, it scared the crap out of my mother. She nearly lost me to fibroid tumors. But, I fought and survived. Yet... it made her VERY protective of me, when I was growing up. I wasn't allowed to walk to the corner store...
