I Moved Around A Lot As A Child

every school year until i was 12... you? 112 People

    When I was a child my father had a job

    that caused him to move from one place to another. That made it hard for me form and keep friends especially with seizures. Now that I am in control as an adult I try to stay where I am as much as I can.

    The Nomad...
