I was raised in it all my life. My ma DA'd herself when I was young, and my family shunned her. I've got all kinds of issues with this crap and I'm so relieved to find all of you here. I thought no one would ever relate. My life isn't all bad though. My spouse is heaven sent, I've got the world's most awesome dog (it was confirmed by an unbiased party)and I have too many hobbies. I need to quit my job, or I'll never live half the life I want to, in the time I've got left. ~A
