How do I get over a rough chilldhood? Please read & help.?
From what I can remeber my dad was a carnie we used to travel from fair to fair and stay in lots of hotels..They split for awhile and my mom married a guy when she was pregnant with me who signed my birth cirtfct they split. I don't know why I just remember him leaving while I was sitting in my toy box and my mom screaming at him. Now I'm going to start from age 7. I would constantly watch my parents fight, send eachother to jail ect. My dad was a carnie. My mom never held down a job. My little sister was born when I was 7 1/2.(same biological father) I was jealous because I was always my moms baby. My grandmother left me mother a house which we lived in for most of my early childhood. We moved to NC with bio father. They would fight alot beat on eachother lots of drinking. They finally split for good when I was 10. Havent seen him since, i'm now 19. We moved back to Ohio and my mom switched from boyfriend to boyfriend and was on drugs. Pills, cocain, crack ect. Baisically my whole life. We never did without though. I never knew how she paid bills but we were constantly bouncing from house to house. When I was 11 my moms latest boyfriend left her. I came home from school found her half dead on the floor foaming from mouth. She went to phych woard. We lived with my grandma alot. After that I started running away from home. Was sent to jail at age 11 and was there atleast 3 times a year for violating probation until I was 15. . Then I left home for good.Shortly after my mom met up with a old friend (rich old friend) whom she's now married to and seems to be settling down with in NC. I was 15 and on with no one left in ohio.Then I met a boy and we moved into a apt. when I was 16. When I was 17 I started stripping and thats when the fights begun. We just broke up three months ago because we couldnt stop fighting, I was always cheating on him and staying out all night doing drugs. (which I haven't toutched in 2 months) I've always been very clingy with men. We used to fight and he actually ended up in jail for DV because I lied. I don't know why. I loved him, I feel crazy. I broke that boys heart and all he ever wanted to do was love and take care of me. Well we ended things for good I got my own apt. and was on drugs bad. Then I met a man who helped me get clean and I seem to be on the right track. I've never been good at holding down a job so i'm scared to get back in the real world since I no longer dance. Well i'm in Nc visiting my mom right now and its been nothing but fighting. Not with me and her but with her and my grandma and I yell at her for dogging my grandma. I've realized that my mom is crazy and a alcoholic drug addict. She thinks that since she lives with a rich man and will never be poor again that its ok. Idk I just really want some advice because my childhood memories are haunting my and effecting the person I am. Please someone give me some good advice.... Jessica
