I battled severe anorexia when I was younger that almost claimed my life.

And I have been fighting depression/anxiety and bipolar for the vast majority of my life.

It can be tough when the obstacle you're always trying to overcome is yourself.

The second half of my school life, specifically from September 1997 to March 2001, because things got better in subsequent years. I want to mention also the year 2011, but at the same time, I want to keep that under the bridge.

To think it pales in comparison to other things. I'm not saying I've had the worst life in the world, even if I myself may have felt that way then. What I am saying, though, is that my maltreatment from others, and my collective experiences up to now, have shaped my outlook and how I perceive things in life.

As for my persecutors, I could forgive, but until then, I won't forget their names. In fact, regarding forgiveness, it's not that simple, because they don't remember(?), and have their own lives, and if they have any shred of guilt that comes back to haunt them, they can just find distractions or even drink. Maybe it's best to just let sleeping dogs lie...

Worst Things ive ever been through
1.Technically died from pneumonia 4 times(Doctors were about to pronounce me dead)
2.Watched one of my dogs die in my arms
3.Had to live in a homeless shelter(Fuck so called "family")
4.Moved around alot and which eventually desensitized me to having any sort of relationships with people(im currently trying to rectify that)

But on the plus side im going to the Air Force so hopefully the military will help me get my outlook on life together!
And to help me get the resources to punish my distant relatives who were supposed to help us out, I will ruin them completely.

Thank you for your impending service, and may God keep you safe.

As for your grudge against your relatives, er....

I don't think anything alone is the worst. Together they culminate into a hell of a sob story though.

Suicide, abuse, murder, drugs, illness, bullying... sounds like the plot to a movie when I put it this way! I can say karma is on my side though. The 3 assholes who bullied me throughout my time in Texas are all in jail for murder/drugs/beating his mother.

Welcome to Texas!

Bread with seeds and nuts is the best kind of bread. Expand your tastes, child!

I might enjoy nuts if half the damn things didn't try to kill me, for seeds I've got to have everything seedless, ESPECIALLY watermelon. Some people call me picky, I call myself refined.

since you say no judgement here I go
when I was 2-3 I was raped by my dad
when I was 8 my cousin forced me to touch him and said he would kill my mom if I didn't and if I told
when I was 11 I was molested in mexico by the house keeper in the house we stayed at
when I was 19 I was molested by a "Friend" whom I opened up to and told all this and told I have had nghtmares since I was a child and am afraid of some touch

I am afraid to get into a relationship, because im afraid the man wont accept I don't like to be touched in different areas and have to feel comfortable with him first
as for other things, a medicine triggered me and made me develop a "tic" I pulled my hair until I was bald, it was very hard stopping the habit which took a few years, meanwhile I was bullied and people thought I had cancer and bullied me because of that, they also thought I was a lesbian -sorry to those that are lesbian, im not and how they degraded me was in a way that was degrading to being a lesbian"
I have long hair now almost to my waist though I still pull every now and then when stressed

I hope your brother is send to rehab as soon as possible. I don't think your brother is a terrible person, it's just that the drugs take over his and his gf's life. Drugs are a death sentence, so he should get help as soon as possible.

My situation was different from others, the worst thing that happened to me was my incorrect ,misleading co-dependent, false religious and governmental entitlement and unrealistic world view + gaming addicting that caused havoc in my life. My views were completely alien, i did not understand life at all whatsoever.

I had this image in my mind that everything was going to stay forever the same. That my family, God and the Government would take care of me, and that i could enjoy playing computer games for the rest of my life. It's not even funny when i think about it. Others would live my life for me was the idea, not that i would do nothing though , i would live my life and take care of them as well, and through this exchange process everyone would live happily ever after.

Of course this system completely collapsed. Main reason i was living in a dream world and being heavily addicted with gaming at the age of 5 i was definitely not living in reality.

In reality however things change, they always change.And what i thought was impossible, first my beloved pets died, then Family members died, and i died inside of myself and went into depression.

I had a horrible accident on a bicycle i lost my teeth and had to go through a horrible 12 hour lasting operation 2 times. This made me unable to goto school for too long.

I flunked my school, massively, games were more important then real life after al. I was not responsible for living my life right? Of course reality dictates that you are responsible for your own life, you are your own primary supporting pillar.

I was booted out of school and highschool as well. Having no diploma i ended up in some miserable industrial job.

The whole internet thing started and i fell in love with someone online, who appeared to be a fraud and a liar, i however was so in love that it shattered my heart, spiraled my life into such a deep depression that i tried to commit suicide, but i thought to myself that suicide is a cheap way out, and not the right way out of your problems.

After that i went into a relationship with someone who later i found out had mental problems, i went through something that makes hell look like heaven and we fought for 8 years straight every single day and ended up in the hospital several times

After that i started to understand the necessity of replacing my twisted world views, and the hellish pain day after day made me realize that this is not a good place to be in, and made me understand why it was necessary to climb out of this hell hole, namely in order to lead a better life.

I started doing a LOT of reflecting during my job , and started to replace my dream world views with realistic views. This might not be your reality but this is what i learned.

You are primarily responsible for your own life
Praying to God doesn't work for me. God cannot live my life for me, nor can my family. There's no angel coming from the sky to help me with my life, that's my job to make sure everything is arranged properly.
I cannot depend on the government. The government provided terrible education, terrible information, is corrupt itself and will not provide for my pension.

I am on my own, primarily. That was my life lesson.

And i know it's kicking in an open door for someone else, but for me stupidly believing in magic i got my face kicked in by reality of life.

At this moment though i managed to work though the worst problems with me and my current wife (yes don't ask how but we managed to stay together) and she is encouraging me to still get my diploma, for which i am very thankfull for. I am still not the person i want to be, but i consider myself as Pinocchio , trying to learn to become a human being.

Almost killed myself and went crazy in the streets a few times. Nothing serious though. I've come to realize most people go through worse than me. More so than I previously thought that is. The world is a rather shitty place where everyone is fucked up.
