Hello... I hope I'm not posting this in the wrong place, but I couldn't figure out where else to write it. I'm 60 years old and a grandmother. All my childhood my step-father called me stupid, ugly, among other things, and compared me to my sister who was his first born, saying things like, "Too bad you're so ugly and not pretty like your sister.", and "Why can't you be smart like your sister?". Then when I was a teenager, he would call me "big nose" so much that I would sit in class with my face leaning on my hand in a way that it would cover my nose. And to this day, I still feel stupid and ugly, even though I modeled for Sears when I was 16 and graduated from law school, even though I was 45 when I did and had to overcome my A.D.H.D. and dyslexia. It's good that there is a place where I can talk to others who have been through the same things.
