For Three Years...

I ran away from home when I was thirteen years old with no particular goal in mind but to get away from my family... especially my father....
I stayed at this youth hospice that charged a quarter a night to stay there but when your downtrodden you'ld be surprised how hard a quarter is to come by...
But no matter what I always managed and after a while I got a small oddjog helping at a saw mill.... that's where my accident happened...
I was hurt to the point of numbness spreading around my body, and I started to feel sleepy...
I was out for a while and when I came to...
I actually had amnesia....
I don't know if it was from the accident or from me just deciding to forget but....
I remembered my name....
My age...
My family's names were gone...
I could remember what dad looked like....
But couldn't remember a single moment with him...
I remembered my mothers voice....
But couldn't recall a thing she'd ever said....
I went home after the accident....
The boys in blue posted a picture of me on a milk carton or something....
called my parents in and they took me home....
I was 16...
But that didn't last too long.
I left again at 18 after my father decided I was big enough to 'fight' him...
Ever since I had come home not a day went by that he wouldn't say; "I can't wait for the day you draw back to hit me son... THEN I'LL SHOW YOU WHO'S THE MAN AROUND HERE!" And one day he got his wish...
I didn't hit him... I just left...
On my 18th birthday he had just finished telling me how I'd 'never make a man' and that 'no woman would ever love me' for a man who never hit me...
he sure as hell could be abusive...

Your'e dad sounds like a Sadistic ******* who doesn't deserve to be called a Father. What was it like those three years on the run?

Be everything your bastard father was not kind, caring, considerate and many other good traits "You need not be the bastard u have the unfortunate to come from."



You will make it and find a girl to love you one day.

I actually married earliar this year in January after dating her for three years... marriage check.

Glad. U found someone nice. Will write more later hate using phone

wow ur dad was not a good man... did he treat the others in ur family same way ?

no it seems as though his impatience with me stems from a constant state of misunderstanding..... Autism drove a wedge DEEP btween us, but he was good to my brother and mother, a little harshspoken but decent.
