Hi All - I am Steve, I am 42 and am a recovering addict with 165 days clean from opiates and alcohol. I grew up in a middle class home with my mother, 3 brothers, and a stepfather who abused me until about the age of 16 - both mentally and physically. At 11 years old, I was thrown across my room because I did not sweep the walk way good enough and ended up with 16 stitches in the head. My stepfather would beat me when my mother was not at home and usually blamed me for their problems. I used drugs to cover up the pain and to also hide from my own identity. Three years ago, I finally accepted who I really am and have never been happier with my partner of 3 years. My stepfather died of cancer in 1990 and if anyone believes in divine intervention - he got his just deserve and will never hurt anyone again. I have put the past behind me and am living for today and tomorrow. I am happy to be a part of Medhelp and the many forums that I gain from and contribute too. Thanks.
Hi my name i like cloud my real name is a testomoinal to who i am. Matthew is my name its a good name meaning gift from god but the reality is its a name of a 19 year old boy who let other walk all over him and is now confussed and lost. My life story is fairly good i was the quite weird kid who sat alone didnt talk unless you talk to me. About 5 years ago life took a bad turn. my mother would go out and be gone for days at a time we lived in a nice small two bedroom apartment. Life took a bad turn about 2 years ago when we couldnt afford to live my mom was out of work and my dad was bairly hanging on to his job we lost power for about 2 months and it was crazy but it was nice we were close then. I had a pit and a white shepard mut dog both had nice names that i dont want to meantion out of respect to them. but my white dog was almost 7 she was a very nice dog but then she got cancer or it started to affect her. She was with me for a lot of hard times when my mental health took bad turns. It got so bad i would have to carry her down stair so she could be outside and feed her by hand after i had chewed the food for her and it brings tears to my eyes think of it I miss her. i found her on the floor gone we didnt have the money for her ashes so all i have is a photo and memories. Then my pit got stolen by a meth head and was droped somewere we seached for months and we never found her. Then we got another shaperd to fill the void then we got another pit but something went wong and a power struggle started they started fighting we would get the pit in the car and start taking her to the place to have her put down but we never could go though with it. Then mom left for 4 days we didnt know were she was she went out We ran out of money and me and my dad got ready to leave to were we live now mom came back the day before we were going to leave i said go bye to all my friends and dogs i miss them all so much. we got here and as things started to look up everything fell apart again and i just cant take it again. I'm losing my self in all my stress and mental problems. We doing better then we were back there but i think ever thing is just coming over me all the stuff that been happening. O theres so much more to the story but i dont think my heart can handle telling anymore .
I have been learning ways to cope through therapy,my emotions and feelings can be all over the place,but I have been given actions to use to centre myself again and they really work,if your interested send me a PM and I'll explain some of the strategies I've been given.
Hi all! My name is April. Please don't let my username scare you. I use my anger as motivation to add value to myself :) I am a big bundle of ambitious energy. I am shopping around for a new support site that I can develop friends from and one that I can get support and give support as well. I like forward to getting to know all of you.
