I just lost my husband of 26 years to the most horrible version of brain cancer there is. It quite literally pulled his brain a[art. I have 2 teenage daughters that are heart broken and worried about their future. I also need some corrective heart surgery and some other surgery as well. I have had to put this off for the last 5 years as we struggles through my husband's cancer. Those girls that are so worried about their future are busy playing on the computer leaving everything to me to do. They beg and plead with me to take care of myself and not to leave them, but god forbid they help me in any way.
I grew up with a single mom ant a time when mom's weren't single. My real dad, great man that he was, forgot to mention that he had 4 or 5 wives, non of whom he had gotten around to divorcing. Yeah, that was fun living in a small tow. I was BAD BLOOD! kids were told not to play with me.
Anyhow, got over that and moved on. Things were pretty good for a whole. My mom met a new guy in her life, it all seemed good until his brother, who was a year older than me, decided that I was his own private sex toy. Years later I finally, after much councelling, told my mom and she replied, "kinda figure it was something like that but you know that I needed to keep the marriage together." Thanks mom! Loved the time that my step father cracked her head open with a garden how just because I wouldn't eat the squash he grew. Stood between them with the butcher knife and offered to eviserate him if he came close to my mom. I called the family doctor, he came to the house, stitched up my mom, had a beer with the stepdad. That was the end of what they did about it. I told the school councellor, my mom was called in, even with stitches in her head she told them I was lying and they believed her. I left after that, no surprise.
Life has a funny way of kicking you I just give up!
