My father abandoned me on the side of the road two hours from home on my 18th birthday, then drove home and shot himself. I found out a week later that he had died while staying with strangers that brought me to their house and was unfazed by it. I went for a walk and contemplated what i was going to do next. He was verbally and physically abusive for years and I finally felt free. That was four years ago. I am still living with that family.
