I dont have enough money for this book and i dont even know if it will help. My like has been like crap. I was beaten half to death and was sexualty abused by my grand parent when i was a just a little kid and got token away when i was seven years old. I'v been to the hospital three time because i was cutting my myself but none of the trips even worked. I feel like no one understands me and that I should end it. I done drugs and am currently addictive to cigerittes. I cant even see two of my little sisters. The mom that aboptid me treats me like crap and all this happen in a short life of 15 years. If you are reading this then thank you for listening ti me. --gabby

I want to buy this book but its too damn expensive.. I go to counseling but it does not help me, I cut myself alot People call me a freak , They dont know my story, And they judge me by how i act Or what they see Im 14 and my dad acts more Immarure than i do Alot of times i find myself thinking, "Someone please just shoot me now" But it never happens.. I grew up with a bipolar grandmother And a grandfather who was semi religious I lived with them for eleven years I move away in the summer of 2012 I am in the 8th grade now I dated a girl throuhout my 6th grade year So i suffered alot of criticism From being called things such as "dike" and so forth I just dont understabd why people think the must be so awful To me... i never did anything to them..
