TRIGGER WARNING. The little boy I was had Asperger's and ADD, neither of which he understood in any way, shape or form. To say he was annoying is probably understating things a bit. Also, his ADD (which was unknown back then among children) looked

It's sad to me that some of the Christian faith have not treated you well and I am sorry for that. If someone pushes faith on you and it makes you uncomfortable, report them, you have that option. If someone asks me what I believe I will tell the

My mother was my problem, as well. I don't remember her as attractive, but I remember all the men who said she was. They'd be envious of me, because I was close to her so often, as if a woman's attractiveness was still a big plus in the case of the s
