Well my story is this... I lost my mother when I was two, to colon cancer. Six months later my grandfather died of the same thing. I don't remember neither one of them. I barely new my four sisters from my mother growing up as most of us were separated. My younger sister and I went to live with her father who I thought was my biological father until I was twelve. He later went on to commit suicide when I was six on the same day as my four month old brother died of SIDS. My sister ended up living with my grandfather and I went on to live with my aunt and uncle who later adopted me. They treated us kids like dirt especially me because I wasn't theirs. When I was eight years old they had a fight in the middle of winter and my aunt kicked me out of the house. I had to sit outside off and on for hours and it just got worse from there. It eventually went on to being punched, slapped, hit with the belt and being a little slave doing what they wanted when they wanted. It hurts so much to know that they hated me that much to treat me that way. They eventually got divorced and I remained with my aunt because my uncle tried to kill himself in front of me and I couldn't deal with it but life with her was so much worse. I eventually moved back in with him and things improved for awhile. Everyone was much happier but then the house caught fire and we lost everything. I was then living with an abusive alcoholic, getting laughed at because of the house fire and being parentless that I tried to commit suicide. I became sexually active and ended up dating a guy who was 15 years older than me who decided he would rather be with his cousin. I then ended up in foster care at 16. My foster parents were great. I went to live with my father and found out I had four other siblings. I have lost so many people that it doesn't hurt as much because I seem to expect it. Life is okay for the time being. I am happily engaged and have little to no contact with my aunt and uncle. I tried therapy and the therapist told me to write letters to the people who hurt me in the past and that ended up dredging up even more stuff and made everything worse. I am currently on medication that seems to be working. Thank God!!!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
