I could talk to anyone and everyone till' the cows came home about
my life situation. I divulge little details here and there, that are half-truths because
there's no point in telling anyone about it. It's a really sad story.
And quite frankly, there's lots of other people
out there with worse stories so I would like
to save the sob stories. I don't know why
I replied to that thread though, however since I did
I must have been mad at my family
And I still am. Because I don't consider them my family. But they call themselves my family,
so I refer to them as that. I appreciate the gifts they gave me, but
they kicked me out at 18 and nobody assessed me for any mental issues or anything
after I had said that I wanted to be in business, and attend an American University.
Not a single person in that "family" nurtured me from birth
I had failing grades. Still do sort of. Except now
I don't play video games. I read everything I can get in front
of my face when I'm not listening to the stones and relaxing.
It's different now. And I wouldn't mind going for runs, or shopping
with these people, or going to the art gallery. But not a single person
calls me to do anything with me. Not to teach me even how
to build this for myself, or how this works; and my uncle is an engineer sort of.
And a technician. So is my cousin. But they pretend that I'm the
one with problems, and all I wanted from the very beginning was
for somebody to be interested in what I was interested in and to support me.
And now it's turned into some sort of liberation movement,
and thank god it has because it's the only way I've been able
to effectively represent myself in society without any parents
or a family to rely on. Friends too even. I have some friends, some neighbors,
but I still miss having a group of friends. And a girlfriend.
Again; sob story. And of course there was the abuse; be it sexual, emotional, mental and physical almost every day and the poverty as well. And
literacy problems followed me after brain damage, as well as a speech impediment.
All of this has lead me to becoming an individual who
needs to be prepared like he is about to colonize a planet
