I am 19 and have already overcome many obstacles. When I turned 9, my problems began. My only friend would hit me, kick me, slap me, call me names. I got teased by my family as well, I was called fat and was avoided by my own brother and cousin for many years. I went on to have more friends, sadly they were also abusive and would walk all over me. I’ve had to deal with untreated depression since I can remember but I finally found a man who treats me right. He knows my past and helps me handle everything. In a few short months he’s also going to be my husband. We’re going through a rough time right now because he is in the army and is deployed and we’ve already tried for a child that ended in a miscarriage. It’s been really hard on both of us with him so far away. But knowing his love for me makes everyday better. He makes me forget my past and if it wasn’t for him, I might not be here today. I had no one until him and I am so thankful for him to help me overcome everything and to continue to get through my day even so far away.
