My parents were heroin addicts since I was 6 till I was 12/13. I was severely bullied for it but my parents never beat me up.

I saw a lot though... People coming in and out of the house. I'd seen my parents beaten up many times with different weapons. I'd seen people enter our flat and beat my mum up.

Tbh though, I think it's made me a lot wiser to this day and it's made me the person I am. Even if you hate your past, remember it made you a stronger person.

That's really sad... So there's absolutely no way of over coming it?

I was abused by pupils in primary a lot... Yet I'm fine now and I know everyone deals with things differently. Although to this day, I beyond hate them all.

I'm not completely healthy, I'll admit. I do have a low self esteem and I'm pretty insecure.

I think how I go about with it is, I act like I don't care, like anything anyone says doesn't hurt me, like I don't need anyone. It's worked so far... But for how much longer I don't know.

I just want to get away from the people who hurt me and get on with the life I want.
