when i was little my mom and dad split up because my dad is a crack head. later on my mom got a boyfriend when i was 12, and he was a MONSTER. he would come in to my room and beat me senseless no matter if he was sober or drunk. And tell me my dad is dead, and mentally abuse me even locking me out of my house in 20 below weather in just a t-shirt and jeans. he never raised his hand to my older sister though, because i was the one that didn’t obey his every word. its been 5 to 6 years since he finally left, but i still have nightmares of him. but just one where i’m in bed and i wake up to him chocking me to death, and i wake up in complete fear crying. it was the worst 4 years of my life, and still haunts me today.
