    surrounded by adults trying to confort me. I was too niiave when I noticed my mother was not there, rapid whispers when I asked where she went. the pity in their eyes when I didn't get a straight answers, too embarrased to say a word of truth. I was 14 when I was told she killed...

    He was seeing other guy behind my back. A guy that is skinny and healthy. I'm healthy to an extent. So what if I'm fat? I still enjoy walks even though I get tired out easily. My favorite activity is swimming. There wasn't a reason for him to leave me. In my opinion I think be...

    Well it all began when I was 13

    and still continuing till today. Many who used to be my friends left me and I felt like an outcast in my own town, it is like they feel that I am a burden for them. So I left my town and settled in a city near by, a place where people accepted me as the way I am. I finally found...
