Hi! My name is Chloe.
I have a blessed life. I have a nice family, amazing friends, and a great education! I seem happy ALL of the time. I am always cheerful, no matter what.
Though, this week hasn't been good at all.
Lets go back a few years though.
Well, for my childhood, I didn't have a mom. I didn't think much of it though, because I was so young. I didn't exactly have a mind of my own though. I guess you could say that I was quite the airhead. Well anyways, my dad and I grew up living with his parents. My dad was constantly drunk, and when he was drunk, he would be violent and defensive. Whenever I ever said anything in a joking matter, he would take it offensively. He would tell me how much he hated me and how worthless I was to him. Soon, I started to believe it.. cause I started to hate myself too. All I had was my grandparents, but they would fight with eachother all of the time. I pretty much grew up alone. My dad went to rehab when I was in 5th grade. He left for a month and came back. He has comitted a few DUI's, about 4, and a hit and run when he was 20. He went to jail when I was in 6th grade. He stayed for a whole year. That whole year, I was completely alone. I had no one to talk to. I started to cut.. and try to commit suicide by an overdose.. but then I told my grandma. I knew I needed help, and I was willing to get the help I needed. I soon told my friends, and they were a great support also. The day my dad came home, I was overjoyed. I believed I actually belonged on earth. Like I had meaning.
So today was normal. We went to the mall and I got a bunch of clothes. I had a great day. But later on, I got horrible news. My uncle had one year to live.
My uncle is the one who always knew how to cheer me up. He was there for me everyday, and I was there for him. We both connected in undescribable ways. He has liver cirrhosis.
And in other bad news, my 92 year old great grandma is going to die very soon and my great aunt has breast cancer. 2 of my cousins also died.
And here I am, being completely overwhelmed with this news. I need someone to talk to.
