I’m an 18 year girl that lives in the United States. I’ve had my share of problems that began when i was a child. My mother neglects me and my father is too busy to notice me or any of my achievements. My grandparents raised me but my grandfather died when i was 11, he was like my father and was the only one that cared about me, and after my grandfather passed by grandma relapsed and began doing Oxycontin again. My father was an alcoholic when i was little and my parents always fought. After my grandfather died my life changed, my older brother who was my bestfriend became addicted to drugs and i developed a facade to hide my pain. No one knew about my problems until they found out i attempted suicide a lot of times. My parents overlooked them until i was taken to a Crisis center and spent a few days there. I take anti-depressants and ADHD medicine now. I am not ashamed of my problems, i own them and try to get through each day. So that’s a brief background of my life so you know that i’m not some random person trying to help but hasn’t been through anything.
