I grew up in a dysfunctional home with, I became a loner and shy one. I was always Isolated so I never had friends I did what I was told and did everything I was asked of. Even on my 16th Birthday my mom did not want me to go out so she grounded me for no reason knowing I would listen to her. After I graduated from home school (high school ) I left home I had enough By 18 I was pregnant & married that is where the rest of my story begins with an abuse in every form with in that time between 1997 and 2006 when I left and divorced him after four children know he is an amazing father , bad husband now X husband. My children do live with there father full time as we share joint custody . I soon fell into another abuse situation in a new relationship in 2006 Yet this time around it is more sutle & am more stuck than ever , with no car not able to work living on SSI I am still Isolated , no friends and as I have tried to reach out I get rude comments and become more insecure and low self esteem , I have no family that can help me so I am on my own . There comes a time when you begin to fall , loose hope and not want to go on alone anymore I am on the section 8 and housing list's & that is running slow , so I have done my part nothing else I can do or say at this point.
