Wow, ok lets get started...I'm a 45 year old woman...I was adopted at my birth to a couple who had decided that adopting a child would help save their marriage. They then later adopted another little girl to be my sister.
I was picked on horribly in school, no friends, younger sister had to protect me from bullies.
Parents divorced with a huge custody battle that lasted 3 months with my sister and I being forced to live at the mean neighbors house down the road.
3 years later when I was 13, my moms mom died, my mom died and not 2 weeks later my dads mom died, and 9 months later my great aunt died.
Dad did the best he could but was in a car accident, hitting his head on a windshield, suffering a brain disorder called a-typical-unusual psychosis. Suffereing paranoia, he lost his job of 23 years, forcing him into retirement.
My sister and I were ripped away from him and put into a foster home, he got us back in 3 weeks.
At 16 I was date raped, my sister at 17 got pregnant, at 20 I was in an abusive relationship and had a child. Married the guy, but divorced him when my child was 10 and tried to start a new life.
Father couldn't live alone, got medical treatment and was doing much better but wasn't his old self.
I have been raped and abused 5 different times, had 2 major surgeries and 2 herniated discs with nerve damage...unable to work to properly care for my child.
Met a really nice guy, my daughter growing up, has lots of problems, not able to work...my nice guy and I got married...my dad went into a nursing home
My husband tried to help me, my mind started to go...depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks...lots of meds.
Sister doesn't give a damn about me or my daughter or Dad.
Husband leaves us...for 9 long months...we still saw each other and eventually got back together
2 months after we got back together we found out we were 5 weeks pregnant, I was 40.
Our son was born in january of 2007, beautiful baby. Seemed healthy.
At 5 months old he started having seizures.
On his 3rd birthday, my beloved father died.
Our son is now 4 and has epilepsy, autism and fragile x syndrome.
We are tired, stressed, broke and I just want to give up!!
