- About me
- I was born almost 4 months before JFK was shot in Dallas. No doubt - that makes me a LOT older than most of YOU. I was born into what soon became a very dysfunctional family. My dad became an alcoholic when I was around 6 years old or so. His 'problem' all but destroyed my family. And as is the case with every family dealing with a troubled parent - each member of my family found their own way to cope. My way was to eat. And as a result of all that over-indulgence - I gained a lot of weight and became an easy target in school for bullies. My self-esteem crashed and has yet to fully recover. I was very depressed and desperately needed someone to talk to. But I couldn't find anyone. No one seemed to have any time for me. And of the few adults who did take the time - the message I got from them was, "If you think life if tough NOW - wait until you grow up!!" Great advice, eh? And really comforting. I soon learned to keep my mouth shut. But I made a promise to myself that when I grew up I would take the time to care. I promised myself that when given the opportunity to LISTEN to someone - especially some kid and/or teenager in trouble - I would take that time. And basically - that's why I'm here. That's why I'm a member of TeenHelp. I'm here because I'm keeping that promise I made to myself. And that makes me feel good!!
Have a great day and know in your heart that there ARE people in this world who care about YOU!! [Even 'old' people like ME!! lol]
