Let me tell you about myself..Im 17, diagnosed with depression and bipolar. My childhood was battle seeing as how i grew up in a household with an abusive alcoholic mother who used to beat me. When i was in 3rd grade my mom drank herself to death, They took her away and well i wasleft on my own for 2 weeks. Which doesnt really sound long, but when you are 8 years old...Finally my neighbor found out that my mother wasn't been coming home and that i have been living by myself, she took me in. When school started she contacted the school which contacted my father. The next day i was to move in with him. So i left the life i knew.
