Losing on Life

My dad left us when I was 10. I was brought up by mom single-handedly. She worked most of the time and I used to be alone at home. I was harassed and bullied by my uncle and his family with whom mom and myself stayed for 7 years before we could manage to stay on our own. I started working when I was 18 and have been working since then. I feel I’m...

When asking other people about the situations, they say that I’ve been acting in the right, although some others say that it’s just me...

Weird Sleeping Problems

Most days, I can’t sleep. I’m not talking about staying up too late on the internet or whatever, I can lay in bed for three hours (that’s how much time I usually give it) and I still cannot sleep. I often go to school without having had any sleep at all (2 of the 5 days at least), and that’s really messing with my grades. I’m diagnosed with Dysthymic Disorder, so it would make...

I Can’t Accept Myself

Well I’m gay and I stopped denying it recently. I always known that there’s something different with me, though. I hate it and I’m so afraid because everybody around me says awful things about gays.
