Abandoned by both parents
( Warren, OH)
I was given away to strangers as a baby, and brought to my grandparents, who were loving but always too busy. And between relationships, my mother would come around only to leave again. She continues to do the same now and I'm 34. She now is not speaking to me since my husband and I got a house, and I'm not even sure why. has always been there and treated my sister great. I am so glad I found this. I have struggled my while life with this. Now, I at least have some understanding of why I am the way I am. I have to work at being affectionate to my husband, which I know I don't do a really good job of. But sadly, I have to work at it with my kids. I love them to death, but struggle to be affectionate.
I want to get help, but unfortunately have no insurance and have been laid off for over a year and a half, so there isn't money for any counseling. But at least I know a little more when the time comes that we have the money. I feel that one day, there is hope, that I won't feel so alone and unloved.
